    I received my Gold battery today and I keep getting the battery with red X icon. I have tried several times to decode the thing and nothing. Can someone please explain to me what is the procedure to decode it? I have followed the procedure on the sellers site with no results. Thanks everyone.

    Looks like you've picked up a defective battery. Demand a refund.

    Seidio's works. I'm getting it by next year, or when the generic extended battery I ordered starts swelling again. Waiting for it in the mail.

    It's big, it comes with it's own custom door and it now fits the case they have.

    I've bought three extended batteries now, and got only temporary peace of mind! The first had to be recloned after every reset, so it was useless. The second, the ecell Gold, worked fine but when I had to exchange my handset it couldn't be recloned for the new one. The third, the Momax, won't work on my 9900 with OS versions .402, .428, and .523. Maybe it'll work with some future build, but I doubt it.

    I'm not spending more money on extended batteries until there's one, in the 1400 or so range that doesn't need a special back cover, that works without cloning.
    Update.

    Upgraded from 7.1.0.437 to 7.1.0.523 with Momax 1400Mah X Battery in the handset and the phone rebooted no problem!

    Hi, I've spent the last 20 minutes reading this entire 33 page thread. I'm not looking to do the Sideio 3300mAH batt with the large new cover..

    I've initially read about the Gold 2430mAh ($9 on ebay) and how you only had to clone it once.

    I also read about the Momax 1400 ($25 on ebay) and how it also improves battery.

    The initial reads are the Gold 2430mAH gives from 25%-50% (mostly 25%) additional life.. what is it of Momax.

    What is the "summary" recommendation for getting a better battery?

    Bold 9900, ATT.. Currently 7.0 OS.. planning on doing .391

    I wouldn't trust the gold one, the other one you mentioned, is probably better. I am getting the seidio next year or within 6 months.

    Momax 1400Mah X battery is best of the bunch, you will not get more than 20% from any extended JM1 size battery.

    I also have Seidio 3,000Mah, great battery for special long trips, to heavy for day to day use.

    Momax 1400Mah X Battery still has 60% after 12 hours of moderate use and only has to be cloned Once!

    Hi there. What about these ones
    Would be nicer to include the prices. I didn't quote the full post due to breaking the forum rules... But prices are for the curious if they don't feel like clicking the links. Not trying to be a mod, just a mentor.

    OK. DSTE (1900) is about $10, and 1700 one's about $6.

    Sounds excellent. I wonder if they'll compete or surpass the ones in the OP. Nice finds.

    I read in these forums the mugen one does not need to be recoded. I was just about to pull the trigger on the DSTE one but found this thread hoping someone has reviewed it already.

    Momax 1400 X battery now comes pre-coded, no need for decoder and IMO is best replacement JM1 battery

    on one of the buyers descriptions it says not compatible with blackberry's operating on os 7.1 or higher but compatible with blackberry 9900. So which one is it seeing how now almost all 9900's are running on the 7.1 os.
    12-03-12 02:33 PM
  20. Rootbrian's Avatar
    I think the seller needs to start shipping decoders if it doesn't work on 7.1. Or maybe they're running out so they changed it up?

    I wouldn't be too concerned, most of the users that have the battery probably are using 7.1 alreaady.

    well its been over 48hours on this gold battery and i'm at 20% charge remaining....i can say it does have a slight capacity increase over the OEM battery.....and the bonus is it does not require re-cloning after every reboot or battery pull like the other cheaper "china 1500ma" battery i tried a few months ago.

    not bad....we will see how long it lasts before it does not hold a charge at all anymore.
    wow its been almost a year since i bought this battery and it's still working well...no failure as of yet. i get 2 days out of my 9900 with light usage less then a day if i use it ALLOT....

    well worth the purchase.....

    I am currently running the mugen 1500 mah in my bold 9930...came ready to plug and play running the latest 7.1 (.737) and I DEF saw a battery increase. Its slightly thicker but lays behind the battery door PERFECTlY....Im getting several hours more out of my battery now. I know a lot of people that shy away from the 40 dollar price tag...but if you buy 3 china batteries at a cheaper price..you end up here anyways!
