Giving The G1 a Boost - Seidio Innocell Extended Life Battery

A couple weeks ago I noticed my G1's battery was essentially shot - I'd charge it all night, take it off the charger at 8am, and by noon it was basically dead.

Luckily, some time ago my buddy Nick had mention he was seeing a real improvement using the Seidio Innocell Extended Life Battery. Now seemed like the perfect time to invest in one.

So far, I'm definitely liking it. While I have yet to do a thorough test, the anecdotal evidence is good. I'm now able to go two days without a charge (with WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth turned off) - versus the one day I was able to go back when my G1's battery was working well.

Sadly, I can't even get close to the battery life Shira gets on her BlackBerry Bold 9700. Man, that thing just sips battery juice.

So, if you're G1 is just not up to the challenge of making it through the day - I'd definitely suggest the Seidio battery - at $36.80, it's a steal compared to buying a new phone.

Hmmm...I wonder if I could get an external charger and keep an extra, charged one, on hand?
