    The original works fine for me at the moment. For a stock battery it is the best I have ever owned.

    please post your best reviews gadget geek !!
    First observations:

    - Battery is slightly thicker than OEM, my battery door is now firm without my usual piece of folded paper! WAHOOOO!!

    - Seemed longer to reach 100% than OEM, although this was expected. A subjective observation since I didn't specifically time it.

    Charging went as expected. I checked a few times, and it neevr felt hot during charging (I had the phone off). Have been using the battery for a few hours. Will report back on battery life later.

    Ha.. well folks its only been 8hrs since I popped it in on my 1st full charge, so still a tad too early to tell. However I was at the office for those 8hrs where my signal isn't all that great (-105 dBm) with a few txts & emails, a bit of internet use and a couple of <5min calls. I'm now @ 85%, so initial observations are good.

    P.S. Seidio's accompanying paperwork states performance will improve after 5-6 charges.

    Can someone confirm that this battery will NOT work in a 8100 Pearl? I'd like the extended battery life but don't want to get it if it won't work. I already have the extended battery that has the larger battery door.

    My phone has been on 26 hours and I am now at 50%. This is a significant improvement. Typically I would be pretty close to drained if I'd left the phone on overnight.

    I'll recharge after depleting fully. I'm definitely impressed.

    Yeah but how much talk time did you do in that 26 hrs
    02-08-08 09:09 AM

    Around 40 minutes of calls, plus a bunch of emails.

    I'm at ~36hrs since my 1st full charge... 2 8hr days at the office with semi-crappy signal, bout 1hr total calls, moderate txts/email/internet... I'm now at 55%. Already noticing a definite improvement over stock, I'm pleased.

    OK. Been using the BB for about 12 hours. About 2 hours of phone call use, updated and read a bunch of articles using Viigo, checked a few emails, recorded and emailed a voice note, light internet use (looking up Puppy Bowl for my dog loving girlfriend), checked the five day forecast on BBweather, profile on vibrate, looked at a few pictures, and I am at 55%. With this type of use with a factory battery, I would normally be at about 35%. So there is definitely a difference.

    yes. That was the first charge. I charged it for 8 hours, as per the instructions. Just an observation:
    If you compare the physical size of the battery, it is larger (thicker), though so slight, it does fit perfectly in the Pearl. Nice work on this battery!

    Yup, the battery is very slightly thicker but fits perfectly and actually makes the battery door firmer without using the folded paper fix.

    Just got mine yesterday. Charged it overnight. I'll let you all know the performance as I use it. Same observation on size. Just slightly thicker but a perfect fit.
