3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but ugly, 5 July 2009
This review is from: 1600mAh High Capacity Extended Battery For LG KU990 Viewty (Electronics)
First up I can't fault the seller for the product delivery and price.

My rating reflects the fact that the battery and back plate are really, really ugly and stick out from the back of my mobile like a hideous carbuncle. Note to the designers, what were you thinking?! The LG Viewty is a beautiful phone.

You have to use the (plastic) back plate as the battery is much thicker than the brand LG battery. Because of this my phone won't fit into the protective case I use. Instead I have to use a mock; I keep the spare battery & back plate in this now

I bought the battery as back-up for when I can't get the phone charged. For this purpose the battery is fine. I can't comment on the extended life as I haven't kept it in the phone long enough for it to run out. As soon as I've recharged the LG battery it goes back in!

If you are as precious about the look of your phone as I am then this is not for you.

*** REVIEW UPDATE ***
Just a wee update to my review; a bit of humble pie eating here!

I kept the battery in until it was completely discharged and was pretty impressed by how much extra time I got from it. I was away from home so using my phone more than normal plus listening to music and watching videos on it.

With my normal fairly low use I have to recharge every 2nd day. I got at least an extra days worth with above average use. So on the battery purpose alone I should really have given this 5*. After all looks aren't everything ... apparently! I still think it's an ugly wee blighter but an excellent backup powerhouse. My humble pie is eaten :)
