For those who just cannot wait, I found a possible extended battery for the 8800/8300 series. I just got the battery today, check out the post for more...
http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...eal-thing.html

EDIT: Not to salt out seidio at all, but for those looking for an alternative in the meantime. The battery is 1800mAh, so if seidio comes out with its patented 2400mAh, you know I'll be switching back in a heartbeat.

Default Any word on the 2400mAh battery?

Any wood on the 2400mAh battery? We have been waiting since late May for the release, but still no news.. I tried the iGoneMobile (STAY AWAY!!) read my post about them... they picked the wrong person to send a bad product to..

# Q: Actually, the battery is based on the "blacklight" function you have.. I used to have "blacklight" always on, and display time of 2 minutes and it will run out in about 1 day... now I have the "blacklight" (auto-adjust) off, and run about 20 seconds time, and it can last for 2-3 days, even with emailing, checking internet, playing games.. I think that is the feature that most people miss.. Your battery is good that it allows 25% boost in energy, but of course 2400mAh (+71%) is much better.. with 2400mAh, that will last one whole week without needing to charge =)
A: Thanks for your input. I'm sure someone else will find this helpful.


# Q: My battery goes from 100% (not charge throughout the night) from 8pm last night, to 1pm today, and battery only dropped to 75% (17 hours time).. this is with backlight "off" and 20 seconds display time.. 17 x 4 = 68 hours (almost 3 days) =)
A:

I bought the battery (they said the battery was 950mAh, but actually I looked ALL OVER the internet) and saw that the battery was 1400mAh.. so this extended battery gives 25% boost..

right now, I am able to get 68 hours (3 days) if I set the backlight to "auto adjust" and 20 seconds.. about 24 hours (1 day) for backlight to "always on" and 2 minutes display time..

I ordered the battery and will see if it is better than original... The Seidio is too slow to come =( with 3 days + 25% boost ==> 4 days.. one day improvement is better than nothing for now.. with the proposed 2400mAh, that will give a boost of 71% , SO 3 days + 71% boost ==> 5-6 days... a whole week without charging.. and frequent use (3 pushed emails, downloading , and playing games) that will be nice =)
michsu,

Before the iGoneMobile battery went belly up for you, how was it fairing since your last post from above?

I think they sent me the original battery (well, their version of the original)... well, couldn't really tell because there was no label on the battery... but the battery was able to fit in the Blackberry with the original door.. so it must have been an original, and not extended one.. I think the "retaining" power was actually lower than the original RIM battery... so their product is not good.. their "extended" battery is probably the same as the original RIM... so you basically lose 25% by "overextending" the power... so the Seido's 2400 x 0.80 = 1920... and 1920 mAh is better than the original of 1400.. but not by much...

I cant do all the math that you have done to figure out (commend you for it), but if after this week, I don't see a difference, then I will be out $30 for this, which I had to spend because the general (wife) paid for her own nails this week. I let you know how I fair with it, and hope you can get that switched and resolved if you want. I think the extended might help some for now, until we see seidio step out...

haha, I left a nasty question (comment) on their Igonemobile website... same thing as I left here... about the rubber-band issue and no invoice slip.. also, I left the reselleratings.com link.. they removed both within 1 hour's time... lol... guess they don't like people leaving 'bad' comments..

[i posted this in another battery thread too...]

this is all interesting. i've had my 8800 since march. regular battery has done fine. but last coupla weeks, instead of having a couple of solid days of battery time sans charging, i instead have had less than a day. new at&t phone store swapped me a new (standard) li battery yesterday, and while today will be first day to put a full charge on it, it already seems much better like the original battery used to be. i wonder if blackberry batteries sometimes just quit holding charge well, out of blue and for now apparent reason!

I would agree. I had an 8700 for the longest, and swapped batteries when I started noticing the decrease in the full charge. I would venture to say your accurate, but I am unsure of how good of "quality" some of the batteries nowadays in respect to your comment.

Pushing about 3 months since the original post, seidio, any word on your battery for the 8800, or are you waiting for the newer 8000 series of blackberries to come out?

The battery is showing up on Seidio's website, however only on the 8800 side. It doesn't show as being in stock, but it is picture on their website. It's going to be the same size as the current battery available from RIM but with higher capacity.

10 to 15% more juice doesnt seem like much to me. I have been with the iGoneMobile extended battery for about a month and some change and love it. I can go pretty much all day without getting below 90%.
