I'm almost tempted actually, and use the original as the spare. One of the clinchers for me getting an 820 was that you could swap batteries. When I first got mine I thought the battery looked small. Maybe you just can't get anything more from that size. I see you can get chargers for them now.

1800 mAh doesn't make a big difference (at least for me), and also I'm not sure about the Mugan battery quality (is it really good as the original Nokia one?). I think Nokia should do what Samsung did with GSII, the original battery was the same 1650 mAh for GSII, but Samsung released an original extended 2000 mAh battery with back cover. Lumia 820 has the removable shell and that's the good point, so lets use it. I believe it's no effort for Nokia to make an extended battery and I really don't care if my 9.9 mm 820 becomes 11+ mm thick but having 2000 mAh battery (for God sake Nokia ... Lumia 720 has 2000 mAh!!!)

I take your points. Mugen are claiming on their site now that their battery is a hot item (not sure that's necessarily a good claim for a battery). The shipping date keeps going out too. It was originally supposed to be 1st March, then I saw 8th and now it's 22nd. Either everybody's buying one or they can't make them. I didn't know that the 720 had 2000mAh. That's a bit of a kick in the teeth for us 820 owners.

Just wondering if anyone's tried one of these yet (or the since announced 3600mAh one)?
On the lighter side this could be worth a go:
[ATOM-820SL] Buy Mugen Power 297000mAh Atomic Battery for Nokia Lumia 820
Even if it doesn't quite live up to its claims it could still be an improvement

Hey zack251, that's really interesting. I know it depends on usage but that's better than the 9% quoted. So, you'd recommend this, right? It's worth the $44?.
Pictures of the 3600mAh would be great. The battery life that would give would be awesome, but I wouldn't be interested if it made the phone significantly bulkier or heavier, and I can't see how it couldn't.

So far I am satisfied with the battery though I wish they have 2000+ with the same size and dimension. I would not get the 3600 mah either because I want to have the option to change the back plate with wireless charging capability.
I think Whatsapp consumes lots of power. I used the phone with the original battery when I was in the U.S. and I was not using any data plan. I just used WiFi connection and the phone could last about a day and half.

Hi zack251. Thanks for that. On the strength of your first post I've gone for it. Only 30 quid in my money so it's not the end of the world if it turns out to be a pile of poo. I know what you mean though. A 2000mAh would have topped it. Maybe they just can't get that capacity into that size. Is the 820's battery physically small compared with others? I haven't the experience to tell.
