Seidio Announces Extended Treo 755p Battery

Treo 755p Extended BatterySeidio has announced their latest OEM-sized extended battery for the new Palm Treo 755p. Seidio's batteries are must-haves for many Treo owners who feel underserviced by the standard Palm battery and CDMA chipsets like the one found in the 755p usually consume more power than their GSM brethren.

This new 2100mAh battery promises approximately 25% juice than the version that ships with the Treo 755p. Treo 755p owners can still use their stock Palm battery doors with the soft-touch paint while still enjoying additional talk and standby times. Shipments of this hotly-anticipated battery are scheduled to begin the week of June 18th, according to Seidio. Pre-orders are currently available for this battery at a rather steep $59.95.

Unfortunately, due to the deeper battery well specifically only found on the 755p, Treo 750 and 680 owners are still out of luck when it comes to high-capacity batteries under their stock battery door. To date the best option available for owners of these GSM Treos is a moderately boosted 1300mAh Seidio battery.

Man, that's a lot of $$$.

But at least Seidio is aware there's a need for battery power in Treos, and is aiming to fulfill this market.


Maybe someday even Palm will, too.

Joad;

Are you going to buy this battery for your 755p? Or has the 700p to 755p transition nickel & dimed you enough already?

hhklife: For $65-70 shipped, I'm just lugging around a couple chargers and my old 700p spare battery for now. Eventually this price will have to drop down, or a competitor will come along with a similar clone.

I'm still a little wary of their minimalistic 90-day warranty, too. That's a worst-case scenerio of $250+/year in batteries if they turn out to have defects.
