3 out of 5 eggsAs anybody there? -- John Adams

Pros: I liked is while it worked.

Cons: Used this battery for 5 months. Never used the original battery again, so I lost it.

Last week, there was an Operating System (OS) update for the 9930 phone. During the "over-the-air" update, the beautiful 3000 mAh battery stopped working. If you put it into a working phone, you don't even get a battery-icon. The phone stays completely dead.

The 3000 mAh battery requires "programming," and a "tray" is included for doing so. Getting the battery-icon is the first step in "programming the battery." My battery won't even display the battery-icon, so it's not surprising that the battery won't accept re-programming.

Other Thoughts: Before I realized the 3000 mAh battery failed, I thought the phone had died during the OS update, so I got Verizon to send me a replacement 9930 (refurbished, no charge). $500 charge, until they receive a phone back from me in the mail. The 3000 mAh battery was completely dead in the new phone. Then, Verizon sent me a new (regular) battery. The new battery worked in the new phone and my old phone, proving that the 3000 mAh battery was killed during the OS update. Thank Gd it wasn't my phone. (Wow, not allowed to spell It out.)

I'm thinking of buying another 3000 mAh battery. But I just sent an email to CellBatt, and I'll see what they suggest, first.

Regardless, I've learned to put an "original" battery in the phone for OS updates. Then I would go back to the 3000 mAh battery.

5 out of 5 eggsGo from lasting almost a day to lasting two days

Pros: More amp-hours. Comes with a Quasimodo-shaped battery cover to replace the stock cover.

The "kit" comes with a tray that the old battery AND the new battery are inserted into. A barely visible LED on the tray lights up, and now the new battery is compatible [paired] with the phone. Voila.

If you don't do this process, the phone won't recognize the new battery. (Requiring this procedure is a potential imposition.) The process works. Everything you need comes with the package.

Granted, the Chinese-based English took a lot of re-reading until I was able to make sense of the directions. I didn't know what I was getting into -- I just wanted the battery, and Heaven helped me figure out the directions, and it wasn't a big deal at all. But I think it will be easier for you, now that I've told you what the object of the game is.

Cons: Skin:

The blackberry 9930 is small and slippery. The solution is to put a silicon skin on it. The skin that fits the phone with standard battery is not falling off with the huge, Quasimodo battery installed. But it's stretched out and it's not pretty.

Holster:

The holster that holds the phone vertically wouldn't accept the skin. The holster that holds the phone horizontally with the simple eye-glass-case-style clip in back holds the phone with the skin AND the big battery (!), but the flap is weak to begin with, and the flap is totally useless with the additional girth -- My phone already fell out, once.

The phone does not read 100% for more than 1/2 hour, then it drops to 80%. Then it takes a Very Long Time to drop to 40% and below, depending on your activity, and if you have the GPS running constantly, etc.

Other Thoughts: My best solution is to put on the friction-y silicon skin, and put the phone in a pocket. It will be too sticky in the pocket to fall out. The skin is working, but ugly. Mine is ORANGE. Today, forget about holsters.

Wonder wonder if skins & holsters will ever become available that fit the Quasimodo battery. Or provide a nucular fuel cell that's the same size as the standard battery. NEED amp-hours AND proper accoutrements.
