I figured I would toss this out there. Stock battery is 1400 mAh and I found through a friend that an ebay seller had a 2200 mAh battery for my VX7R.

I ordered it and so far so good...definitely *much* more capacity, though I haven't done exacting tests, it's immediately noticeable.

It looks a lot weirder than it feels in your hand oddly enough. Sort of makes it feel like an old style full sized HT. It stands more firmly on a table now too heh. The two down sides. To put it in the drop-in charger, you have to pop it off the radio and with a belt clip, it has to be sideways while on the clip now.

This is the guy I bought it from, no affiliation with the guy at all, but transaction was smooth.

Yeah, I would think it could have held 3Ah at that size
