Got the battery a couple months ago and finally decided having to keep the phone on charge 3/4 of its waking hours was enough to push me over the edge. Using Mikes previously posted discussion back in Sept I took the plunge knowing if things went horribly wrong Id have officially retired an old friend. The operation went smoothly except for a quick run to Home Depot to get the torx (T4) necessary to remove the screws that I had assumed was in the kit of tools I purchased off Ebay. I used the wife’s hairdryer to heat the glue on the back. The connections are kind of different than anything else I have ever encountered but the excellent info on Youtube guides you through it. The patient is awake and charging (since 11 AM) and is up to 60% full. The old battery would fully charge (and discharge) within a hour…If it takes 8 hrs to get full its bound to last longer. I forgot what it was like when it was new after so many charges and years of use.
The Moto X1 has been a great phone for me and with this upgrade will exceed and wild ideas I had on its long term value when I purchased it.
