******see my post on page 3 for HP's response to this concern*******

So what gives HP now has two variations of batteries in the stock 16GB TP.

Using Dr. Battery in the preware section verify what the health is of your TP and the Manufacturer rating mAH and calculated left mAH. Also under the device info Tab was is your product number. I think I may have found a trend here. Please see my findings below:


TP 1:New 16 GB battery 6281 part number FB45UT#ABA
TP 2:New 16 GB battery 5647 part number FB355UA#ABA
TP 3 reconditioned: 16 GB battery 5647 part number FB355UA#ABA

updated info below to include battery part number from the box

TP 1:New 16 GB battery 6281 part number FB45UT#ABA; battery hstnh-f29c-s p1967
TP 2:New 16 GB battery 5647 part number FB355UA#ABA; battery hstnh-s29c-s p1967

We maybe onto something battery part #hstnh-f29c-s p1967 may = the higher capacity 6281 battery while and hstnh-s29c-s p1967 is the lower 5647 battery.

So wonder if we have a trend here. I find it odd that there are so many variations on parts for the TP; iPad through FoxConn tend to be standard across the entire production lots which are typically in the millions not thousands like HP. So what gives?

Both of my 32GB TP's are 6612mAh @6281 (95%) health. They are both early models (one was pre-order, the other was an eval unit from HP that I purchased at the end of the eval)...

Wondering if HP changed the batteries halfway through production to lower the cost since they were dropping the price throughout production runs. The two costly components to the TP are the screen and battery. Based on the forum post we are seeing varying qualities on the screen and varying capacities on the stock battery.

Here is a picture of the hstnh-f29c-s p1967 battery which according to this forum and the initial posts when the TP was launch was the included battery. What is odd is the battery hstnh-f29c-s p1967 is only rated at 6000 not 6300. see pic...

Is your battery part number on your box: " HSTNH-f29C-S PI967"?? I would bet money on it that it is.

it's weird how it says 99% life when it's a brand new unit

I'm charging my 2 different touchpads, going to see if there's any difference in battery life

Sure is a lot of *delicate* work. I once tried to replace my iPod Touch's battery. Did I forget to mention that I *tried*? Anyway, I bought a new iPod Touch as the result.
