lg 440g and 420g batteries
Thanks for all your input. Really works for me!!
Another thought: Are the batteries on the Tracfone LG420G and LG440G interchangeable? They seem to be the same physical size. Both are 3.7v The LG440G is 950mAh. The LG420G is 900mAh
I think my LG420 battery is starting to lose its sustaining charge. I seem to be charging it more frequently, though I do not use it that much. I used to get 10-12 days out of it before recharging.
I'm finding it very difficult to find a replacement battery for the LG420, and circumstances are preventing me from buying online.
You're welcome. The batteries do look identical, and both the voltages and the polarities are the same. The difference in capacity is minor.
I was going to write that you're probably okay with switching them, and then I thought, "I have these two phones, and they're both inactive, so there's no harm in testing them myself."
I switched out the LGIP-430A battery and put the LGIP-531A battery from the 440g into the 420g. The latter started up and worked just fine (for the few minutes that I tested it).
So there you have it.
