Small Extended Battery for Treo 800w & Centro
New OEM Sized 1350mAh Centro and Treo 800w Extended Battery Provides Nearly 20% More Talk Time Without Need For Large Battery Door
There are some good news for Treo 800w and Centro owners looking to enhance the talk time on their smartphone without the need to have a large battery door as a new Seidio 1350mAh OEM Sized Extended Battery for Treo 800w and Centro has just been released.
This new small Centro and Treo 800w extended battery provides some 17% more power than the standard 1150mAh Palm battery and thus extends Talk Time for the Treo 800w from 4.5 to 5.25 hours and from 3.5 to 4.0 hours for the Centro. This is not exactly a spectacular improvement but if you’re on the market for a better spare battery then the Seidio would now seem to be the best choice.
Having said this, most Treo 800w owners have actually chosen to go for the much higher Talk Time offered by the Seidio 2600mAh Extended Battery (pictured above left) because it delivers a rather astounding 126% more power and thus extends your battery performance from 4.5 to over 10 hours! (See my original review)
Demand for this Treo 800w Extended Battery has in fact been so high (it’s actually the #1 bestselling accessory) that it’s unfortunately been out of stock for much of the last couple of weeks but I’m glad to say that a large new shipment has finally arrived so if you’ve been yearning to more than double the power on your Treo 800w now is the time to get yours.
There is also a similar Centro Extended Battery which provides 2400mAh and thus conveniently doubles the talk time from 3.5 to over 7 hours.
Finally, if you’re a Treo 800w owner please remember to install Palm’s Treo 800w USB and Battery Charging Update which fixes a technical glitch on some Treo 800w smartphones which could under some circumstances either: 1) prevent your device from detecting any of the in-box or third-party USB Treo 800w accessories such as the power adapter, headset or sync cable and/or 2) prevent your device from charging a completely discharged Treo 800w battery (particularly if the battery has been left “dead” for a few days before trying to recharge it in the smartphone.
This update that takes just a moment to install (you can install Over The Air via this URL palm.com/800wusbota) and which resolves most of the USB detection issues as well as ensuring that your battery will recharge properly from now on.
Separately, please also have a look at these Top Treo 800w cases:
Treo 800w Side Cases
Body Glove Case – Only $24.95
Currently my Editor’s Choice for Best Treo & Centro Case, this all-rubber Body Glove Case (see my review) offers a very slim, modern, elegant and robust solution to carry your Treo 800w by your side. I particularly like the pattern on the front flap as well as the two strong magnets and slim belt clip.
SPE P6 Pouch Case – Only $19.95
Long regarded as the Best-of-the-Best the SPE P6 Pouch Case is one of the Treo accessories with the longest track record of popularity and it’s been a bestselling case for nearly three years now. Thanks to an efficient design, high quality build and convenient magnetic flap this is a Treo 800w case that continues to make its mark and provides terrific value.
Please note that both of the cases above also have the benefit to be “universal” cases which means that they will fit nearly all Treo and Palm Centro models.

Treo 800w Holsters
Seidio Spring Clip Holster – Only $29.95
Business people have typically favoured the use of a holster for their Treo 800w as it provides one of the fastest and most convenient ways to access their smartphone while on the go with just one hand. This particular model has always been my favourite as it also intelligently places your screen facing inwards so as to protect it from bumps and scratches.
Seidio Innocase Holster – Only $29.95
While all of the above Treo 800w cases are designed to carry a “naked” smartphone this Innocase holster is specifically built to accomodate a Treo 800w with a protective “skin” such as the Innocase and new Palm Leather Sleeve below all the while providing the same level of convenience as the normal Treo 800w holster.
Treonauts are always full of power…
