Assuming the 3800mAh charge figure is honest, that’s more than three times the capacity of the Pre’s standard 1,150mAh power supply, which in real terms means a Pre that lasts two or three days, without a charge. That might not sound too impressive to your 1999 self, whose Nokia candybrick lasted two weeks on a charge, but he never could’ve forseen the dystopian, power-deficient future of 2009. Here, and for a phone like the Pre, a couple of days ain’t so bad.
But yeah, ha, it’s FAT. Also a little pricey, at $US130 for the 3800mAh monster, and $US90 for the less paunchy 2800mAh version. Another caveat: they come with new backplates, which don’t work with the Touchstone charger. Full rundown and tests (forthcoming) at [PreThinking]
