    Lately Ive noticed my battery power draining really fast. I could make a phone call or 2 the whole day, at the end of the day the battery is up to 12%, just like that. I charge it everynight. I havent put on any new progarms in quite sometime. Phone is about 3 years old. Im assuming its the battery. Is it time for a new battery? How much should I be paying for one?

    Hi myblackz28.

    Definitely, your battery is gone. You said 3 years? WOW! That's a LOT.

    The Treo's battery is really amazing... you won't find easily a battery that lasts that long, with a powerful processor and a 320x320 display.

    Since you'll have to purchase a new one, consider the Seidio 2400mAh: "...This Extended Battery provides approximately 33% longer talk and standby time."

    Yes. Get the 2400 extended battery and Pocket Tunes (if you do not have it). It will feel like a whole new Treo.

    Im going away for the weekend and cant really wait for a shipment. I have a sprint store around the corner from where I work. Should I go in there and ge a battery there or wait for the seidio 2400?

    That's really up to you. I would wait, but if you think the original battery will satisfy you, go for it. Besides, the original is also VERY good - I have two of them.

    But Seidio...

    Anyway, be careful to buy the original (Palm or Seidio). Watch out for cheap batteries from eBay or other sites.

    And, of course, good luck!

    Are you driving out or flying? Depending on where you live, you may be able to pick on up at one of our Airport retailers.

    Thanks

    So after waiting online in the sprint store for 20 minutes, they tell me they dont sell batteries in the store. I have to go to a service center which is a couple of blocks away. 60 bucks for the battery. Guess I will have to wait for the seidio to come. Until then I will just have to keep a charger with me.
