Have you called Verizon yet? I was told by them months ago that they had batteries and they weren't too expensive IIRC.
Verizon sells the Novatel battery (1150 mah) for $39.99. Was curious whether someone else sold a higher capacity battey that fits inside the MiFi. Battery life/capacity is the weak link.
Since Novatel makes that MiFi 2200 for Verizon and Sprint, you would think someone would market the extra batteries. Nothing on E-bay or anywhere else. The battery is a LiPo 3.7 v/1150 mah, battery code 40115114.00.
With a spare battery, you should get between 7 and 8+ hours of usage from your MiFi. Only for long trips do I plug the charger into the inverters that we keep in each vehicle, obviated the issue of battery life. The other time I generally use my MiFi is for 30 minute to 2 hour sessions, so I've no issue with the battery. As tiny as the MiFi is, I never expected it to work all day long, away from a charger.Message Edited by dave1812 on 08-06-2009 01:42 PM
