Dave’s Ipaq – LION Battery – Batteries with Power to Spare @ Dave’s iPAQ

So how long would it last with WiFi and streaming video over the net? With the battery fully charged, WiFi turned on and viewing a site streaming video, I let my device sit and continuously play. Of course, WiFi takes an immense amount of power, so I felt this was a great means to see how long it lasted. I set the screen brightness to its highest level, backlight set to stay on and the device set NOT to shut down. At 5 hours, 7 minutes, the low battery alarm came on indicating that I had 19% power remaining.

Considering the settings I had used and understanding that WiFi sucks the power from the battery, in excess of 5 hours of constant streaming was a pretty good result. My regular stock battery would never last anywhere near that amount of time.

Unless I was going to take an overseas flight, I don’t think I would use my iPAQ to the extent that I did during the video playback or the WiFi test. More than likely, usage would be several hours a day with the occasional long day of video content.

I am very happy with this extended battery because it has made a significant difference in what I am able to do. The Mugen Extended battery is a terrific power source that will give you the power you need and the comfort of knowing you will have it all day.

Of course, if you do want just a spare battery to either replace or supplement the existing stock battery, you can get the Mugen 2000mAh battery . The same dimensions as the HP stock 1800 mAh battery just a little MORE power in it. How do they do that? Or better still, why didn’t HP do that? That little extra power makes a difference!

A little more power, a little more time, a little more security — that is what you get with a Mugen battery!
