    Before we all get excited, let's see if they actually last any longer. I know they should, but things nowadays don't always come as expected...

    Even assuming it lasts exactly as longer compared to the mah increase, the price is too high for the small increase...

    That's the best case scenario...

    Sweeet! I'm all over this one...

    This is what RIM should have included with the Bold 9900/9930 to begin with. As a heavy user, if this provides me with an extra hour of use, I'll be happy!

    Cheers for the post.

    Highly doubtful that a battery that is 1mm thicker can offer much help!

    Not true.

    I have been using Momax 1400mah batteries for last 3 months and am getting 2/3 extra hours a day. I want the maximum for my Bold, also have new 3,000mah battery for long trips in far out places


    JM1 battery in 9920/9930 is 0.5mm thicker and produces 1450mah. RIM could have modified the JS1 battery for the Bold 9900/9930. The length and width are the same!

    Thanks

    Not at all, when you consider that the OEM battery is only about 5 mm thick. An additional a mm represents a significant expansion. I've tried these slightly larger batteries that don't require a special cover, on both my 9900 and on my Galaxy Blaze. In both cases I've seen better battery life. The improvement isn't huge but it's measurable.

    An extra hour or two isn't negligible if it makes the difference between having to charge once a day and having to top up somewhere along the line.

    The problem with a 2/3 hour difference is that it's small enough to not be able to rule out general variance...

    Default Mugen release 1500mah JM1 Battery, now we are talking!

    Hi there.

    I would not mind a 20% pay increase as a general variance!

    How do you explain performance of the JS1 1450mah battery in the new 9220/9320 Curve? This battery is running on OS 7.1 and has the longest talk and standby time than any other Blackberry phone.

    I once owned a Nokia N96 with a poor 950mah (BL-5F) battery, a great phone at the time, but hampered by the battery. I then used a 1250mah (BL-6F) battery from the N86 which completely changed the phone from a door stop to a multimedia phone.

    The parallels are very similar to the 9900. The extra 20% in battery life does not seem like a lot, however in general use the difference in performance and most importantly user experience and enjoyment are very significant.

    I must also be honest in saying that I would have gone back to my 9780 had the battery life not improved by using the latest OS 7.1 and 1400mah Momax batteries!

    Thanks

    The 9220/9320 is drastically different hardware from the 9900, so the battery life is not comparable even with the same mah.

    Also not all batteries are equal and mah ratings are not even really accurate or governed. Hence I can rewrap a 1250mah battery and sell i to you listed as 1500mah "extended" life right now...

    I dont understand your point. Most people who use a 9900/9930 would jump at the chance to us a RIM JM1 version of the (JS1) 1450mah battery as against the standard 1230mah.

    If you are debating if the OEM batteries are not rated as actual, then there is some common ground.

    The fact of the mater is that I trust Seidio, Mugen and Momax to deliver at least 90% of the claimed capacity of the batteries and in the worse case senario one would expect at least 1 to 2 hours of extra life from a 1450mah /1500mah battery.

    I recently purchased the Seidio 3000mah battery and I expect it to provide an actual 2500mah/ 2750mah capacity. however it does not really matter, because all I want from this battery is twice the life of a standard JM1 1230mah

    I will give give in to maybe an extra hour but you will see wild claims like 2/3rd better or 3 days of use with adding so little extra chemistry. I have also tried these "slightly larger batteries" and failed to see significant increases in power.

    We just got to keep it in perspective as so many 9900 users want more power and the 3rd party battery makers are sure to fill the need.

    True enough. But for those who find the OEM battery to be marginally acceptable, an extra hour or two is not negligible; that's really my only point. This battery isn't going to change anyone's whole 9900 experience.

    I tried a couple of these kinds of batteries in my Blaze. The first was suspiciously identical in size and weight to the OEM battery, and there was no discernible difference in performance. The second was a Mugen, which was "slightly larger" and a bit heavier than the OEM, and performed better beyond any shadow of a doubt.
