    Seidio's New 8100 2400mAh extended battery!

    Advertisement



    Hello Stackers!

    Seidio is at it again. After the recent 8700 extended battery release earlier this month, Seidio has just released a 2400mAh extended battery and door for the 8100 Pearl!!!!
    With approximately 170% more capacity than the standard 900mAh battery, this one is sure to please heavy users, like me!

    Price tag comes in at $49.95, which is quite reasonable. It also looks like there is some type of screen where the speaker is, and Seidio claims this will eliminate the muffled speaker phone/music issue. Saves drilling time =)

    I just ordered mine and will do a review with pictures when I receive it.

    Here is the link.

    i went a bought the smallest smartphone on the market... just so i could make it big again? you couldnt pay me to put that on my pearl. I rather carry three extra batteries in pocket just in case.

    I guess im just a slave to fashion
    --thanks for the heads up tho

    I did! Just to save on shipping.

    On the extra battery, I do that already. But its such a pain. Plus all the opening and closing of the battery door, caused my latch to break. Tmo replaced it this week, but regardless, it wasn't fun. I burn through batteries sooo much being a heavy user that an extra 1/4 inch on the back means little to me.

    I hate having to buy extra stuff. I like the idea of a extended life battery, and hole for the speaker; but if I purchase it I'll have too but another holster to carry it.

    You can get a car charger for 99 cents and a travel charger for $5.99 on Ebay.

    I'm fine with battery time, I charge my pearl every nite. Nice idea though. I also don't want to increase the overall size. No if only they had a back cover same size with the speaker cutout. Hint hint, if be all over that

    I don't think the extended battery is really neccessary. I mean, even though I don't have a data plan, I do use my Pearl a lot throughout the day. And even then, it never drops below 50% battery life! And when I'm not using it, it's charging via USB connection.

    Certainly to each, their own. I'm mobile all day every day. I'm sure there are people who aren't. And while I'm in the car a lot, its a pain to text while driving or email, when my phone is plugged in. Every BB I've owned, sans the 8700g(which didn't have a one come out prior to me getting the Pearl) I've owned the extended battery. It will be a godsend for me

    ok so it's not the fact you are texting and driving at the same time, but that you cant have free motion to do so that bothers you? yikes!

    Not a fan of how it takes away from the sleek look of my pearl. But I guess if your a real heavy BB user, you could give up sleekness for practicality.

    That is a cool feature to add to your phone. I like the ability of having more "power". The pre-drilled holes are a plus. The only question I have would be... how well would that back case cover stay on the phone? If RIM had issues... would Seidio solve them ?

    NICE FIND
