Hello,

I think I may have to get an extra battery. For the ones whom carry multiple batteries, how do you go about charging them? Is there an external charger/craddle/docking station so you can have your batterie(s) charging while you have your original battery charging in the N900?

Lanbrown,

Actually, I was hoping he would respond lol. I didn't PM him because I thought there may be some others out there as well.

Ceroberts....come online!

Tviard,

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, it is on backorder. On a side note, for it being only 5usd, does that sound right? I mean, normally when something is that dirt cheap (granted, it is a promo), it usually is not of good quality.

It is working pretty good for you? You have two batteries I assume?

USB battery:

The advantage is that u never need to reboot when changing batteries and u never need to be afraid it will turn off itself while u dont notice...

there are even more advanced ones (from other brands) that include adapter-sets to charge all kinds of phones, and also smaller ones if u think it will take too much space...


here's a hardcore external battery that charges almost anything (phones, laptops, usb-devices), but it weighs 430 gram:

LMAO. this is what i did for my e90. it was called my e90 red! Laughing


as for the n900, i have 5 batteries for mine...and 1 for my wifes n900.

her battery lasts pretty much all day! amazing!


i go through 2-4 batteries a day, depending on how much audio i have listened to and if i used a wired headset or bluetooth headset or FM tx.

there really is no science to it. i tried one of the wall chargers from china that charge all batteries, but i just didnt feel right about how it could possibly affect the battery. so, when i get home, i stick my phone on the charger and then when the battery is full, i do something unheard of to those in the apple world. i change the battery and stick it back on the charger!

it takes 1:45 to charge from dead with phone off and about 2:15 with it on during charge. sometimes when i get in a battery back-peddal, i will use my portable volt-converter in my audi and use my standard rapid charger. regardless of popular oppinion on the cla's, i dont trust them. but for the most part, i always have power where ever i go and keep at least one fresh battery in my front pocket.

Hello,

Well I received a spare battery today but I am still waiting for an external wall charger for it. I hope to get it this week!

Just curious for the ones whom are using two batteries. Do you normally stay "online" with your IM accounts? I am online all the time FOR email checking but hardly "online" for my IM chats. I find it to drain a lot of battery.

So just curious to see how the multiple battery users are going about their usage.

It depends a lot on the signal strength - I'm online all day on 3G, and with Skype & Ovi accounts online. Generally, the battery will last all day, but it depends on what I'm doing with the phone - I often connect the phone up and ssh in over USB anyway, so it charges while I'm connected.
