    I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on these so called extended life batteries. I've considered getting one. Have you noticed an increase in battery life?

    I have not heard of 1800 mAh extended life batteries.

    There is the 2400 mAh by Seidio

    and the

    2200 mAh by Lion Battery:

    I have had the Lion Battery 2200 mAh for 8 months and the extra longevity is very evident. Wouldn't leave home without one.

    Cheers, Perry

    It's marketing speak for bogus. Like Lenovo's new wide screen notebook....they same width as IBM wa smaking 8 years ago....or those Enzyte commercials

    The OEM battery is 1800 mAH so to have extended life, it would have to be bigger than 1800....200 mAH is extended life....2400 is extended life but 800 is just plain old regular life.
