    Default Battery Replacement help?
    Ok so i want to buy a 1600mah battery for my iPhone 3G. Was wondering if anyone has done this before, have searched but nothing really interesting. There are basically 2 different types of 1600mah batteries on ebay. Here are the links
    1600MAH OEM REPLACEMENT BATTERY PACK 4 APPLE IPHONE 3G - eBay (item 220544957220 end time Feb-21-10 12:30:57 PST)

    and

    NEW Replacement Battery For Apple iPhone 3G 1600mAh - eBay (item 170432158154 end time Feb-12-10 20:56:27 PST)

    Which would u choose. And do you think i will have problems with either of them?

    I'd get get the one with tools they help. The batteries are probably the same. Keep looking on eBay as I just got 1800mah bats for 2 3g phones recently from a company called eCell in England. Got here in a week.

    ^ they're noticebly better. We had our old batteries for about 1.5 years withalot of charging so we were noticing them dropping off in performance. The 1800 mah batteries seem to last an hour or 2 more during frequent use depending on how heavy that use is. I'm not sure about pure stanby as I use my phone too much.
