|High Quality, high capacity, light weight rechargeable DC 3.7V Li-Ion 2200mAh battery.Best replacement for the original Google G1, T-Mobile G1, HTC Dream, HTC Dream series battery pack.|
I got my battery very fast as promised. It worked great for the first 6 months, then wouldn't hold a charge. Waiting on warranty replacement at the moment. Hopefully the next one will last a little bit longer. Just sent email today for replacement. Will post when the new battery shows up.
I bought my G1 used about 6 months ago. Apparently the battery that came with it had undergone heavy use, because after 2 or 3 months, it would barely last through longer than a 10-minute phone call without needing to recharge. The extended battery makes it look huge, but I can now use wifi often and have lengthy phone conversations without needing to recharge my phone for about 48 hours. When I use it less, a full charge lasts about a week. And it recharges surprisingly fast. Overall I am very satisfied. The largeness of my phone doesn't bother me.
I was surprised!10/23/2010
I have never bought a bettery replacement before for a phone. I was totally surprised. This battery is about twice the size of a normal stock battery you recieve with the G1. They provide you with a backing replacement that accomodates the new battery size. I was really reluctant to buy this new battery because of what I was reading, but I did it anyway and now I am so happy my phone literally never dies unless I purposly make it die by never plugging it in. I can last 24 hours on the battery now without having to plug it in. The battery does make your G1 look and feel more like a brick, but its worth it to me until I can find an upgrade phone. If you consistently have battery problems, this is your solution. Hope I help with your research. Like other post helped me. The comment the other customer said below about the phone being a awesome '80 brick...soooo true it a conversation piece.
Lasts longer, but only for a little bit10/11/2010
I have had this battery for a month now. At first I only had to charge every other day which was great, and I use it a lot through out the day. Now it has gone back to charging every day. It is very bulky, but fun in at the same time. It has become known as the brick. All in all it does the job.
double the thickness10/9/2010
the battery comes with a back that doubles the thickness of your phone. i just didnt realize that it did that, so i spent over $10 for shipping for a product i didnt use. it makes your phone the size of an awsome 80's cell phone.
she's a chunky one9/14/2010
love it. i dont have to plug my phone in every day anymore! (: it definitely makes it a bit bigger but no biggie. i think it makes it feel a lot better when using the keyboard.
Just what I asked for.6/4/2010
Just received the case and battery and I was pleased to get the freakin' case that was in the photo. It is bulky but I'm a power user. The battery last twice as long as the oem in my use. The case is a little less sturdy but it works.
I can now use all the features / apps of my andro12/15/2009
I've been using this battery for two weeks now and overall I am very pleased with my purchase. I can now make it through an entire day with my HTC G1 phone compared to the OEM battery that only lasted about 4 - 6 hours. I stay on 3G always and have enable GPS and bluetooth on. I can now use all the features / apps of my android G1 phone! :) The increased case thickness doesn't really bother me and it actually makes using the physical keyboard much more comfortable for me when typing / texting. The camera and external speaker work just great with the cover.
definately worth it for g1 performance! also, th11/25/2009
this battery upgrade is definitely worth the purchase. g1 users have suffered from an inadequate battery for too long. the item, however, is not as pictured! instead of a fully raised back, as in the picture, the top of the back cover is flush with the camera. no gaping hole. this actually adds an element of stability to the phone without compromising picture quality or sound quality** (the speaker is now flush with the cover as well.) i don't know why the picture depicts the old model, but the new one is a big improvement. for anyone worried about the back cover, i can promise you that it is not as pictured. the item you will receive is much better.
Must have for power G1 users!5/25/2009
After a few really slow recharge cycles the battery is conditioned and ready to go. Even with wifi on and the screen brightness at full it lasts for roughly double the time the oem battery lasts. Cons: The casing is very flimsy, cracks easily and it's hollow instead of being flush with the unit except for the bulge where the extended battery is at. This ruins the audio of the speaker on the back a bit but I use headphones so it's not a deal breaker for me.
