I received this battery last week. Im so thrilled with not having to carry a charger with me everywhere i go. I am a serious user of my pearl and was always having to plug in my phone whether i was in a vehicle or at home. Now i can leave the chargers behind.
Worth The Money!!

Pros: Longer Battery Life
Cons: Slightly Thicker
I got this battery about 2 weeks ago. The original battery would only last 1 day with mild to moderate use. I got 2 days of use after the first charge of the Seidio battery and since then, I consistently get 2-3 days of battery life. The battery is SLIGHTLY thicker so the battery door is snug but the door does not bulge. Overall...well worth the money.
Excellent Value & 28 More Capacity

Pros: 28 More Capacity Than Stock, Prevents Batttery Cover Movement & Vibration
Cons: Pushes Battery Cover Out Approximately .0010”
Purchased this battery days ago, and I would start by stating that the Crackberry.com store service is excellent and the turn around time from order placed to out the CB shipping door was within an hour of the order being placed.
Battery arrived 50 charged and only took 20 to 30 minutes to fully charge on my Pearl using the stock plug in 120vac - 5.0vdc BB charger.
Instantly noticeable performance, and due to the fact that the Seidio is slightly thicker in size it does "fix" the loose battery cover issue on the Pearl 2 by maintaining contact and slight pressure with the cover. Note that this also causes the cover to be slightly raised in the area directly behind the trackball due to the battery pushing on the cover. This does not appear to cause any problems with fit into cases and you have to look close to see the very slightly bulging cover, but still worth mentioning.
Appears to be a very good value and does provide 350 Milliamp Hours or 28 more reserve power to use up on the berry before a recharge is in order.

I just purchased this battery last week and it does prolong the life of my Pearl 8130. With the original battery that shipped, I could only get a days worth of charge, but so far, with just a couple charges, Ive been able to get a day and a half, and it says after a few chargings, the battery is supposed to increase its life. Im hoping to be able to get close to 2 days worth out of the battery without needing to charge it! I am on my phone constantly, so it is always getting used!
