Default Extended batteries?

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone used the Mugen Power Blackberry Bold 9000 1800mAh Extended Replacement Battery? I was considering purchasing it because my current battery doesn't last much longer then a day and that's with 4.6.0.451/4.6.0.266 loaded, Bluetooth disabled and the screen brightness turned down to 10.

I'm not sure about Mugen but this is a good one Seidio Innocell 1650mAh OEM Size Extended Battery for BlackBerry Bold 9000 - ShopCrackBerry

Does the Mugen battery allow you to keep your OEM battery door?

Yes:

Features:
100% Brand New High Quality non-OEM Li-Ion Enhanced Capacity

Battery:
Manufactured by Mugen Power which means Quality!
Guaranteed 100% compatible with Blackberry BOLD Series Smartphone's
One-Year manufacturer's warranty
Amperage: 1800mAh; Voltage: 3.7v

Product Description:
This battery was specifically designed to meet and exceed RIM's high criteria for product batteries. With enhanced capacity, this battery will provide long usage time and performance for the user. Complete with full 1-year warranty this battery does not require an extra battery compartment door as it is the same physical size as the regular OEM battery.

I've never owned a battery made by Mugen nor have I found any bad reviews of their products. Perhaps I'll order it.

I would buy the one with higher capacity. Currently, I have the Seidio and the separate charger so I carry two batteries. With the latest OS, I'm generally down to about 20% by 4:00pm. No IM or GPS running.

That kind of advertising always makes me laugh!

I'd stick with Seidio Online personally. They're reputable and have lots of positive feedback from users here. Seidio offers both a 1650 mAh battery that uses the original door, or a 3500 mAh one that comes with a "hump back" replacement door.

I use the Seidio Max battery that comes with a max capacity battery door and they have a extended battery that will work with battery door that comes w/ phone.

Seidio works great... It is so surprising, though, how significant that extra 4-5 mm is on the 3500 mah battery.
