Default Blackberry Non OEM Battery

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking into getting an extended battery for my bosses 8830. I found one here

BlackberrySource.com - Blackberry 8800 High Capacity Battery

anyone have any personal experience with non OEM batteries?

I have that Seidio extended battery. I personally do not notice a difference on my 8830.

I have done business with Seidio several times, and have had a great experience each time. I also have the Seidio extended battery, and am very pleased.

I had Seidio battery in my Black Moto Q and it was nice, but I would also like to compare the OEM RIM Extd Battery to Seidio's.

Default I would be careful with Seidio

I ordered from Them over a week ago and they havent even shipped yet!

Seidio may have good products - I cant say because they are not sending them to me!

They sure as hell took the money asap however!

$64.85

what does in progress mean? No shipping? you dont have the product just now?


again be careful buying from any company that doesnt care to ship quickly and doesnt even care to let you know why not!

Seidio does make good products but they don't ship the same day and my past experiences they took up to a week to get something shipped to me even with next day shipping paid for. Personally if I am paying for next day I expect it to be next day. Don't say its in stock and not ship it for 5+ days.

PPCMD thank you. You are the first to say it could be them. Everyone else was trying to blame me for it somehow.

sigh I agree about upgraded shipping as I did that too. It didnt and hasnt helped at all.

Your welcome. It is important for other members regardless of the device forum to know that vendors should know they will be judged not just on product quality but on expedience of delivery. I have purchased screen protectors from PPCtechs and Boxwave both companies make great products and both companies have provided very good customer service and delivered as requested and promised.
