Moftware Tech Extended battery for the 7100g
 
Was looking for comments ... anyone using this battery?

TIA

have similar question about their ext battery for 7250
 
they dont claim to be anything other than "aggregators" of existing products. it appears they add a premium for newer hard to get stuff. fair enough, but they don't give detailed specs such as dimensions

This Moftware Tech battery says it is an "Extended Battery" but also says it is 1000mAhr. The battery that comes with the 7100 model is already 1000mAhr, so where does the "extended" come in? Shouldn't it be higher?

Darn good question. I'm calling them now.

The response I got was that the batteries are 3x that of the standard. I'll be honest, I didn't get a real warm feeling talking to the guy. Think I'll wait and get the battery through Cingular.

Caio for now.

K12,
If this were an "extended" life battery it would have to be bigger in size than the standard battery. Take a look at the Nextel Extended life battery for example. You would need a larger battery door covering to fit over the battery to use it as the standard issue battery door would not fit. I don't trust this website myself (own opinion) 1000 mAhr is not 3X the power of the original OEM battery, it is the same. Even the standard battery for other blackberry handhelds (72XX, 75XX, 77XX) is 900 mAhr.
Just my two cents!

Tillia, I hear you and I appreciate your feedback. Guess, I'll be the guinea(sp) pig because I went ahead and ordered it.

I'll report my findings.

lenemery 03-01-2005 10:06 PM

am trying same for 7250
 
and will report back. 30 day return policy. probably restock fee 15%

am skeptical too but it's not impossible. see www.lionbattery.com whose stuff is highly regarded by ipaq techies.

K12 03-01-2005 10:44 PM

I fear you may be right. Thinking positive

K12 03-02-2005 09:23 PM

Well the battery arrived today. Loaded 'er up and charged it 3 hours. I'm off and running. We'll see how long it holds a charge. Will report back.

Sounds like my standard battery so far.

alephx01 06-02-2005 03:30 PM

I have this battery. So far it is on the par or perhaps even worse than the standard battery. I am somewhat pissed now.

rcg 06-02-2005 03:37 PM

I'm usually not one to talk about a competitor but it seems they are trying to promote "fairy dust"... they should be ashamed to sell something that clearly isn't "better" than the standard capacity OEM and may be worse. And to boot they charge 2x what we sell the OEM extended Battery (1800mAh) for. BlackBerry users talk - and when they have something good or bad to say about the product people find out.

One thing folks - DO NOT BUY AFTERMARKET BATTERIES OR CHARGERS They are rarely what they seem.
