Test Result for Amzer's 2800mAh Extended Battery for Palm Pre

Results may vary.

Our test result for the Amzer 2800mAh extended battery for Palm Pre is here ! We went through 5 battery cycles before recording the result, in order for our test to be near accurate. These tests are done with the Pre running Pandora, EVDO ON, BT OFF, email push ON. And the charge time test is done charging via the Wall Outlet, with the same settings.

Our test results shows that the 2800mAh does you more than twice the juice the standard battery offers. And stunned by how fast it takes to get a full charge.

Test result for the 3800mAh will be on the site in 2-3 days.

I have a 2800 and after 11 hours with wifi on all day and typical usage (half dozen phone calls of 5 minutes each) I still have 80% battery...

I actually like the feel of the thicker phone, gives me a better grip on the phone....

Am i the only one that thinks that battery tests should show the range of battery life?

As in, two separate tests:

- One that has all radios on, brightness 100%, watching a movie, with IM on in the background and push mail accounts syncing, with the maximum amount of cards open... to show the minimum amount of battery life one can get

-One that has all radios off, in sleep mode, with no cards or syncing running.

This will show the absolute range that the battery has and allows the user to more easily discern where the average battery life would be for each battery.

There are also a lot of variables that are not stated in the tests... is GPS on/Off? do you have a google, facebook, or IM account synced up with contacts? Is IM Off? What service was the push email? How long was the sleep mode set to? What is the screen brightness set to? Because listing every variable would be exhausting, it seems more useful to try and find out how fast you can drain the battery, and how long you can make the battery last, and however you do it becomes less important.

I realise such tests would take several days and I thank you for doing so. However, I believe this methodology would be more useful.

Day to day I find the Seidio 1350 to be comparable to the numbers stated here for the 1400mah Amzer.

I bought my 2800 the day I read the article about itls existence. I found that I love the bigger feel. I also found it easier to slide open, that was a great surprise! I have been going through daily regular usage and am currently at 77% battery life since unplugging this morning at 8 am. By the way it is now 11:22 pm. I am glad I upgraded even though my first thought of the size change made me pause. But only for a second.
