@liamhere: I saw your pics. I guess the guy at mobilefun.co.uk was either looking at another product or was just talking out of his *** because the back cover is not flat at all. It looks just like the one on the mugenpower website I posted a few posts back.

I still can't understand why a bigger battery blocks the GPS signal. The GPS antena is above the battery when the phone is kept facing upwards so the GPS receiver should sense enough energy. Is it somehow creating reflections and hence interference?!? What am I missing? can someone enlighten me?

I got the official extended battery form expansys, yesterday i ran a half marathon using GPS run, this was anouncing my times/ distance every 30 seconds and the battery lasted over 3 hours and then made several calls and still was not flat.

Lasts very well and this was on the first charge so may get a bit better as well.

which app were u using to track your speed and distance for running? I'm keen to get an app for that also.

runGPS, it's commercial but works great, voice announcements over headphones, export track to google earth etc. They have a trial, google for it.

I bought the original extended battery from http://www.loveno.be/categorie/439 just for 36 euro !

The battery is much more better , gps works fine .

the back cover slip off when the diamond is in my pocket.
you cannot use the original pouch.

Is there an English version of the site?
How long did U take to receive the battery.. and lastly, do U know if it will ship to Singapore?

Looks good! I was trying to find something similar for snowboarding which tracks my path and exports to googlemaps - and this looks ideal for a mere £18!

I've ordered this 1340mAh battery - but I really would like to use GPS for the whole day snowboarding (9-12 then 1-4 or something)... so ideally I'd like it to go for 6 hours whilst playing music too!
Perhaps I should get 2 of these extended batteries - a morning and afternoon one?!

? I use it for running, kept in a belt on my waist with my water bottles. You can always put it in a ziplock bag, I always take one in case it rains whilst I am out. I have never tested this out apart from light rain though so no guarantees!
