i so wanted to get one. then i came across this thread and now i'll have to think thrice. is the battery really so bad as reported?
I think you're only seeing exceptions on this battery. I'm going on almost a month with this battery and it's far surpassed my expectations for what it does. I use my N1 constantly and I consistently have 30%+ battery life after 20 hours of heavy use. From what I've seen Seidio has been quick to resolve any issues. I would recommend this battery to any heavy power user. Any questions feel free to ask. :nexusx:
I also notice that there seemed to be a lot of posts on this "bad battery" problem but if you look close there are just very few that were very prolific in the quantity of post. (No reflection on the posters I would have been very upset if I got a bad one also.)
Now I can't give you a long term evaluation but when I got mine charged up (first time not 5-6 as suggested) I immediately tried to drain it by using it as much as I could. The morning of the second day it was reading 75% charge remaining.
If I was you I would go for it and God for bid you do get a bad one EIDIO will make it good of that I am totally confident.
PS - I decided to go back to my iPhone. Not because of the battery that is for sure but I was extremely disappointed int the N1 compared to the iPhone. Also if you are interested in the battery I just happen to have one with two days usage. Make an offer (via PM), if you don't find it to be everything you expected just send it back to me.
If I have violated forum rules please feel free to delete this post and accept my apologies. Ignorance is bliss... or something like that.
I just got my N1 on Friday last week and have cycled the battery a few times now. On average I am getting around 14 hours of battery life out of my N1 with moderate use. At night, I have to try to run down the battery so that I can get a full charge over night. With normal use, I could expect to go through a full day without having to worry about charging my phone. I may have gotten a good battery, but the stock one seems good to me.
Bought the AT&T N1.
I got my replacement battery. Charged it over night, started using it this morning. The replacement works much better than my first one. After 3 1/2 hours of moderate use, the battery is at 75%. This is much better than the stock battery.
Edit: It's almost been 10 hours since I start using the new battery and I've still got 29% power remaining. And this is only the initial charge! Now that's what I call awesome. Now I just need to wait for the back cover to arrive because they forgot to ship one with the battery.
