Default nextel extended battery

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone found a door for the 72xx models that will fit this battery? something that doesn't involve duct tape?

The battery works, I tried it today, but nextel doors are completely different than 72xx doors.

Why do you need a extended battery? Even with the standard one my Blackberry stays online more than one week.

I use mine pretty heavily, and usually don't bring a charger home for the weekends. Mine usually dies around sat night/sun morning...

Yeah, I like to play Brickbreaker in bed at night before going to sleep, too

That backlight can really eat up your battery. Oh, and phone calls are pretty power hungry, too.

The biggest problem I think is our GroupWise email software, 3rd party crap. But it polls every 3 mins, and usually sees heavy network activity for about 30 secs every 3 mins. I'm thinking that's what's using a bit of the battery

LMAO -- I keep an extra recharger by my bed, and plug it in before going to sleep. By the way, I have a couple of extra rechargers -- if you want one and are willing to cover shipping, I can send it on over...

The story of my life...I put one on the floor in the middle of the doorway into my office, then when I stepped on it on my way home I rememberred to take it with me. Took me another 3 days to remember to take it out of the car, but that's a whole nother story
