I love my Straight Talk LG Optimus Q...except for the battery life. I guess I didn't properly condition it from day 1 (the power was accidentally turned on while it was charging for the first time). My battery life is horrible and I need an extended battery for it. Can anyone recommend a specific vendor who offers an extended battery for this phone?

Okay, how long does your battery take? Keep in mind that smartphones are using LOTS of power, so it can't possibly take as long as a mobile phone.

Ok. Great news!!! I found an extended battery that is guaranteed to work with the LG Optimus Q from Straight Talk. I searched all over the Internet and eBay for an extended battery that works. Everyone I contacted said NO, we don't offer an extended battery. However, I found ZZ Cellular on eBay. I e-mailed them a post I found where someone said this combination would work. ZZ Cellular said it would so I ordered it and I'm so glad I did! A regular replacement lithium-ion battery, from Batteries Plus, was $39.95 plus tax. This extended battery was less than half that price with twice the capacity!

I paid for priority mail and it arrived within 3 business day. After opening the box, I turned my phone off, and installed the battery and new cover. Though heavier, they fit perfectly! The initial charge took only 12 hours. It's been on and used since Saturday morning. I'm now at 52% and it's now Wednesday at 10:16PM. Please keep in mind that my phone has tons of apps installed on the SD card and on the phone. I am using a battery saver program set to normal and a task manager app that manually lets me close apps I'm not using. My WIFI is on, my Bluetooth is off, my roaming is on, and my GPS is on.
I will let the battery run completely down before charging again. My research says to let the battery fully discharge. Then, fully charge with the phone off before turning it back on. This needs to happen several times before the battery is fully conditioned. So far, this battery combination is EXCELLENT and I give it two thumbs up. For business owners who actually use their phone all the time, extended batteries should be available at Walmart or online at Straight Talk.com. Thank you ZZ Cellular
