Gorilla Gadgets Extended Battery For Epic 4g

I just ordered the Gorilla Gadgets 3500 mha battery for the Samsung Epic 4g (they also offer many others as well such as HTC)


Cell Phones and Tablets :: Samsung :: Samsung Epic 4G - LED Flashlights, Cell Phone Gadgets, Computer Gadgets, iPhone 4 Accessories, and much more with $1.99 Flat Rate Shipping!

Here are some pics from their site.... I cant wait to review it... Currently i use either Midnight rom or Android Creative Syn 1.0.1 rom (currently run)




I hope this is as good as Seidio online extended battery

Re: Gorilla Gadgets Extended Battery For Epic 4g

Looks not bad, does it actually offer over double battery life? aka got a comparison of reg battery vs this?

I remember once I got a cheap 10,000mah battery (not for a phone..but I was naive back then lol)..it lasts like only 5min charging a phone lol

Re: Gorilla Gadgets Extended Battery For Epic 4g

I just got my battery in the mail today. It was quick delivery.
I am charging the battery right now.
The battery does not work with the Samsung external charger as the Samsung external charger flips the battery upside down, thus the upside down extended battery will not reach the pins to charge. I have powered down the phone and charging it until about 6am tomorrow March 17, 2011. I will then drain it to turn off and then charge it again for over 12-15 hours. and repeat this about 5 times. Wish someone had a batter conditioner.

looks to be about double the size of the original battery.
Wish batteries can charge in as little as an hour. They are working on quick charges like that....

Re: Gorilla Gadgets Extended Battery For Epic 4g

[Review] 3500 mAh monster battery - Page 16 - xda-developers

see all my pics over at xda. i have about 50 or so pics....

I have taken some pics of the new battery from gorilla gadgets its the epic 3500mha battery.... I would like to know whats under the yellow wrapper of the battery....

All pics were taken with my Laptop web cam an Asus g60jx from Best Buy....

I turned the phone off and charged the battery for 8 hours in the off mode.
Then:

1. booted into Clock Works mod 3 (EXT4 file system) 10pm
2. wiped battery stats
3. formatted everything under mounts and storage at least three times.
4. removed transflash card and deleted all android stuff from it
5. rebooted phone back into Clock Works Mod 3
6. Flashed the Midnight rom lasted standard
7. booted into phone
8. installed all programs
9. booted into Clock Works Mod 3 to install Touch WIZ. Wish you guys would stop using LAuncher Pro... it sucks...
10. rebooted
11. streamed from wunder radio WOWO radio and went to bed at 11pm
12. woke up about 6am and found streaming stopped at some point in the night. battery down to 78% i think.
13. Streamed some more until about 10am battery at 1% according to Batttery Monitor Widget at 10:40am

This is light usage for me... So the battery may be lasting longer just not sure how much longer since the over night stream (wifi on) stopped at some point. I am running down the battery to zero and then when i get home i will charge it for about 8-10 hours or so while the phone is off....
Then i will play mp3 music with repeat all when i go to bed and see what the level is when i wake up..............
