    I saw today several web sites offering the extended life Razr batteries, One site was a 1300 mah battery with the extended battery door for $30. Has anyone ever used a after market battery and did it work as well. I see where some say the real Moto battery has some sort of cut off in it when full. Just wondering it most batteries are the same

    If these are "extended life" then they are probably ok, but I remember I bought aftermarket batteries for a phone once and even though the rating was the same, they never did last as long as the original equipment batteries.

    If you are the market for an extended battery, take at llok at the following link. It is a 1900mah and it is the same size as the original battery so you do not have to buy a new cover.

    As to how well it works? I do not know. If they still have some available when I get paid in two weeks, I am going to give it a try.

    I tried an aftermarket battery once. It never was quite right, so I have only purchased OEM batteries ever since.

    You do have to be careful with Aftermarket batteries, there was a rash of phones catching on fire & they were attributed to these aftermarket batteries.
    Yes the Koyrocea phones had a real problem even with their own batteries, but I do remember other brands having problems & they found each one had aftermarket batteries in them.

    According to my manual, my Samsung SCH-A930 doesnt allow the use of non-Samsung batteries... the phone will display "NON SUPPORTED BATTERY..." and the phone will not charge it :D

    Aftermarket batteries are a ripoff. Most of them never last as long as the OEM battery even after they claim a higher mAh rating.
