    Do extended batteries work?

    The life of the Samsung A310 battery is horrid, so I was looking at "extended batteries".

    Do these work or are they a scam?

    Lightbulb A310 Extended Battery

    With an extended battery, you've only adding 1/4 oz. to the package, which is only 3 1/4 oz. with standard battery & no added bulk if you are using the standard or swivel OEM plastic belt clip. It's safe to say you'll get 50% more capacity with the extended A310 li-iom battery & it's money well spent.

    You'll extend your real life battery life w. mix of standby & talk time from 2-3 days to 4-5 days with typical 12 to 15 hours daily usage - with even longer time on standby in a good digital area & light use (talk).

    Just make sure to condition the battery if your A310 is new with several cycles of full discharge/recharge to get best use out of the battery. If you are in a solid digital coverage area & don't travel out in fringe reception or roam, you might want to set Forced Mode to CDMA only to stay with digital coverage only. Just do a search on the forum on previous tips & info on how to "tune" this phone to get better "mileage" out of it.
