No phone fires yet! – Apple iPhone 3G 3.7V Rechargeable Battery Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Cheap
-Replaces warn out original apple battery.
Cons:
Very hard to install.
I actually broke one of the connectors while taking the phone apart. Now my phone doesn't have a working earpiece, so i have to use speakerphone.
It was my fault though, i've taken the phone apart before without issue.
I was following an online guide and the colors of my connector were reversed. I stupidly forced the wrong part of the connector apart and it broke.
Not a fault of the battery, but just pointing out that the install is involved.
Other:
Try un-jailbreaking your phone if you're having issues.
I had an original jailbreak on my 3G, and it was sucking the batteries dry in half a day. After buying this battery and still having bad battery life, I re-jailbroke my phone with newer iOS, and now i'm back to 5+ days of battery life :)
Bottomline:
Buy it if you are good with small connectors.
