:( Hi All,

Does anyone know where I can get a longer lasting battery from, without chaging the back cover and making the device look bigger then it is? I don't mind even a 10% life time more as long as it's better then the one supplied with my MDA Vario III becasue my battery dies around about 4pm every weekday (when I'm in the office at work) :D . I have to stop using it and carry another phone (as I divert my work extension to my mobile often), I have to put it on charge as soon as I get back into the car :( .

PLEASE HELP!! :(

you don't seem to be having a very good experience with your kaiser mate...apparenty the aftermarket one with the same capacity will (somehow) last longer...theres a few threads on it around here, and i think it's on amazon (though i wouldn't buy it from there as its from a random seller who can't spell)

I bought the amazon battery, and it does not last as long as the original, so I would go with them :D

The maximum capacity battery that I have been able to find, that still fits in the original case without replacing the back is 1600mAh. I got mine from www.sfplanet.com. With a true HTC tyTN II I usually get about two days, maybe a little more of light duty usage (it is on from about 06:00AM until about 10:00PM.) I you suggest you get one of them, keep both of them charged and and swap one for the other when the first dies. Also, do you spend much time at a desk, with a computer? If so, consider carrying a usb cable with you to work and keeping it charged while you are at your desk, or if you are driving a car charger may help.

Because charging it constantly reduces the life of the battery.

It thought that was the cases back in NiCad days but I thought Li-Ion batteries didn't suffer that fate?

Actually I love my Kaiser and won't be able to live without it, it's the battery I'm not having good experience with. I use my Kaiser to run my like smoothly every day, I'd say I use it to the maximum capability e.g. Tom-Tom, sync work/personal e-mail, calendar etc. :(

Sorry for the long response, just thought I need to defend my Kaiser! :D

Wow! that one looks good, it's about £14/15 in UK money.

I bought the 3000 size battery..... the good thing was that it came with a full size back that doesn't give you that bulging look of the 2600 ones....... they designed a back that makes it look like an OEM.... ye its a bit heavier, but its not a roblem for me.... now it will last all day with use of email, 3G, internet, GPS and any thing I want to do and lasts from 7am..to beyond midnight.......hope this helps.

Mmm...I really don't want my kaiser to be bigger then it is (other wise it won't fit into any of my cases, as I've got 3 lots of cases for different occasions) but if you can attach the link to the site/company where you bought yours, that will help so I can have a look.

Thanks :D

I bought this battery at the end...

I've used it for 3 days now, mmmh...I woulden't say it's excellent, just about lasts until 6/7pm (I get home with with first low battery warning).

Thank you, I'll give it a go soon.

1 more way that might help is..

Let your battery go full out meaning don't charge it until it completely dies. Then charge it to full...This sometimes helps because when you charge the first time it doesn't let the full capacity charge. I noticed a 7-10% difference when I did this. Hope it helps!

Thank you, that's a very good idea! I'll also try that.
