This is a discussion on Seidio 3200 mah super Extended Battery for Nexus One within the Nexus One Accessories forums, part of the Nexus One category; Originally Posted by HolmanGT Oops - Sorry I did think you meant the SEIDIO battery. I agree the external battery pack idea while it fits ...
haha, not if you dont mind carrying around a phone the size of the first cell phone
Bought the AT&T N1.
Just an update, I never got a reply from the RMA department, but seidioseidio pm'ed me on Monday to say that a replacement was actually approved and sent out last Thursday. Weird that it still hasn't arrived though, since it was sent via USPS First Class International.
Will post the results when it arrives, currently getting nearly a day's worth from my stock battery with light usage.
[EDIT] Just to be more clear, I take my phone off the charger at around 7am, and get home around 10 to 11pm (overtime everyday ) I haven't actually gone through a whole day without charging my phone, but from the way the battery goes down I think it should last me till I get home if I don't play games or surf the web all the way home on the bus.
I ve many problems with my seidio battery:
1) Very often the device (twice per hour) is auto rebooted each time the device vibrates. Many times I press power button and then It starts to boots, so It was off. In all these cases the battery was full and after this issue it goes to zero
2) With battery full (100%) I remove the battery and put it again and the level is at 0% so I ve to charge it again. Its a very serious issue because the only way to reset the device if it is frezzed is removing the battery.
Obviously I cant use this battery so I went back to stock battery.
70€ battery + 30€ shipping + 30€ UE taxes. Really hope Seidio fixes this situation
I ve sent two email since sunday (2010-04-04) and didnt get answer
My recommendation to you is DON'T put that battery back in your phone under any conditions even if SEIDIO ask you to for some trouble-shooting reasons. I would be very concerned that prolonged use of the battery you described could be harmful to your phone, not likely but why take the chance.
For what it is worth I sent an email to SEIDIO tech support and to my surprise received a phone call from some very nice tech/engineer (whatever) assuring me that they have not been receiving any excessive complaints on this particular battery and assured me that if it did not function correctly that all their products are warrantied and that I would have no problem having it replace.
Mine is scheduled for deliver and at the sake of repeating myself, I will definitely post my findings good bad or indifferent. I in fact will post progressive reports as I use it so no one will have to wait for even inconclusive feedback.
PS - I would like to ask everyone that is having 3200 problems if you bought it directly from SEIDO or from a SEIDO retailer or God forbid some super deal on eBay (as in counterfeit). I would like to know if we "the end users" can help track down where these bad batteries are coming from considering that SEIDO apparently has no knowledge of the problems some of us have encountered.:confused:
