    My lite's original battery is only lasting 3~4h in bright level 2. Need help to find a good replacement.

    Except shoptemp's, they only ship to brazil via expensive UPS/DHL.


    EDIT: Well, found this one http://www.ipaqrepair.co.uk/view_product.php?product=1900 Don't know this store btw.

    If you want a long lasting battery for each cycle it is best to look for 1600/2000 mAh Lite battery.

    But most of them are cheap chinese batteries, I don't believe they have half of this capacity (and the feedback confirms that).

    I've bought a 1600 and a 2000 from DealExtreme and the 2000 didn't last very well at all. It started out OK, but didn't take long to lose capacity really quick. The 1600 seems fie though. But when I bought a 2000 from ShopTemp, it seems to actually work correctly and is getting better life than the one from DX ever did. I think maybe it's because ShopTemp has fresher stock. Lithium-Ion batteries only last about 5 years whether you use them or not.

    I know you said that ShopTemp is expensive to ship to your region, but I thought I'd mention that anyway.

    Just received, a little expensive but it's really original and is working fine.
