I upgraded to new version and my battery life is still the same. I changed batteries (now have 2 6000mah) and get 7 hours of continuously playing 1080p movies.

 

It initially drains fast, but even down at 5% still have another hour left.

go to http://www.htcmania.com/showthread.php?t=584663

use google translate and follow the steps

the 2 x 6000mah batteries are available at ibuyla.com look for v972
the replacements will be 4.5 x 95 x 105 mm

 
The above batteries will increase the weight of the tablet, i have ordered 2 new ones which are thinner and lighter (http://www.ibuyla.com/Product/15508442735/) but they have to be re-soldered because they are in series and make 7.4 v instead of 3.7v for the v972(V1). I believe these new ones will fit, but they have not yet  arrived. If you can wait, i will update this thread once i have tried the new batteries.

The following users say thank you to bobb for this useful post:

hi,

I see my new batteries are ready to be shipped. Hopefully I will receive them this week, and next weekend do the replacement. I will try to include some pics of the procedure (before, during and after), although the first ones will show the batteries I have already replaced, if you go to the first link in my original post you will see the original set up.

 

Am also going to start a new post on minimizing the amount of info your tablet leaks to application vendors.

It is amazing how much info is being collected by application vendors (including google when you first start up your tablet).

Sorry for the delay in posting, was upgrading batteries in another tablet also.

Tried the new, lighter weight batteries, misread the specs, going back to the heavier ones I had originally upgraded too.

I have bought and indstalled these new batteries,  and maybe it is little better, but not much, nowhere as good as my wifes IPAD.

I can't understand why i am spending money on this tablet, it will never run like some real tablet, at least i tried.

Hi Jorm,

 

I`m happy to hear there is a solution to increase the battery life. What I understand is that you bought the 7.4 volt batteries described at http://www.ibuyla.com/Product/15508442735/ ?

How did you transform those 7.4V batteries to 3.7v?

 

Kind Regards,
edezwaan

Hi edezwaan,

 

Do not buy the 7.4 v batteries. Buy the one's in Jorm's reply.

I think it's possible, but have not had one do it yet. Just be careful and don't puncture the battery...

Just found this site for Onda v972 battery replacement: http://www.actablet.com/replacement-12000mah-battery-for-onda-v972-quad-core-a31-tablet-pc_p5327.html 

 

I am not going to change it yet as the Onda v972 battery is working fine with the new firm :) I am presume this is the 600mAh x 2 = 1200mAh ! what do you think m8's ?
