Seidio Palm Pre battery: 20% more power, no extra bulk

Jul 7, 2009

Seidio's first extended battery for the Palm Pre may have had the charge - it promised almost double the capacity of the standard 1,150mAh pack the smartphone is shipped with - but it also had the bulk to go with it.  Now Seidio are back with an alternative; you only get around 20-percent more capacity, but there's no change in your Pre's profile.

That's because the new Seidio 1,350mAh battery is the same size as the original pack, meaning you don't need a replacement battery cover.  It also allows you to use the new pack with the special Touchstone battery door, for use with Palm's wireless charger.

No exact runtime figures as yet, but jkOnTheRun estimate between 7.25 to 9.5 hours based on most users seeing around 6 to 8 hours from their regular battery.  The Seidio Innocell 1,350mAh battery for the Palm Pre is available now, priced at $44.95.
