    The seido slim extended battery is supposed to last an additional 15% over the oem battery from blackberry. I wanted to give it a test.




    cliffs:
    I did a battery drain test using the same settings and watching the same movie

    Seidio battery lasted 6:32
    Blackberry battery lasted 6:22

    yeah I tried to keep the test fair. It was very tough not being able to use my phone for 6+ hours!

    xxfaffyxx, nice vid and good testing. I was considering an extended life battery before moving to 5.0.0.230 (which is fantastic re: battery life). You saved many users some wasted money, IMO.

    If your looking for a spare battery might as well go with the seidio, but if your hoping for a extended battery you might want to check out the 2600maAh battery

    as far as i've seen, the 1600mah is the only one. If someone could manage to sqeak 1800mah in there, then we'd be getting somewhere. This same 1600mah battery you can snag on ebay for ~$10, and supposedly it performs just as well as the seidio, so i'll probably end up picking one up anyway... good test OP
