    Using 8700 battery in the Pearl....

    Advertisement



    they both are the same size, but the 8700 weighs a little more. cant tell the difference in performance if any.

    my guess is that the 8700 might last a little bit longer?
    any ideas?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~check the amps and voltage if its listed. If they are the same you should be ok. At least that logic works with ac adapters....good luck

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I was thinking that the batteries were different. Double check because I could be incorrect.

    The 8100's yellow battery may be the longer lived of the two, but it does work in the 8700 and 7100s.

    The 8700's use the blue C-S2 battery, which does work both the 7100 & 8100. The 7100 initially came with the black C-S1 battery, which does not work in either the 8700 or 8100 (tested this yesterday), although it will fit in all three.

    I still haven't found any doucmentation about the mAH rationg of the blue or black batteries though. Since our 2nd 8100 unit is being used for development testing, I'm going to swap the C-S2 in my 8700 for the C-M2 in the 8100 and see if I get better or worse battery life.

    Re: Using 8700 battery in the Pearl....

    Update: Looks like I spoke too soon. The C-M2 battery is thinner than the C-S2. For 8700 or 7100 users, this is no big thing, but if you wanted to use the C-S2 in the 8100, it will power the device, but you can't put the battery cover back on the 8100 with the C-S2 battery in there. Oops!

    Guess my battery testing will have to wait until we get another 8100 or they start selling the C-M2 battery separately. Ah, well.
