    Extended Battery, is it worth it?

    Hey everyone. I'm new around here, and I'm sorry I haven't introduced myself yet. I joined the Android family this summer when I purchased my droid X, but recently got frustrated with Motorola and their locked bootloader. I bought a brand new Dinc off of Craig's List, and I've been loving using it for the past couple of weeks!

    Currently I'm on CM7 with invisiblek's #28 kernel, smartass governor and underclocked to 960, but MAN, the stock battery just doesn't hold up very well.

    I was looking into purchasing the official 2150mAh battery from HTC, but $60 seems pretty steep to me! For those of you that have this extended battery, is it worth it? Will I be able to make it through the whole day? Right now I have to recharge at least once a day; sometimes twice.

    Should I drop the $60? Should I risk the cheap, dangerous third party batteries?

    I would get the Seidio Innocell 3500 mAh Extended-Life Battery. You get a lot more for your money. It is around $53.00. Here is a link for you to checkout. http://amzn.to/eQt4hY

    I love my extended battery. I got the 3500mAh it lasts all day with heavy use and then some and the case fits perfectly and I love how much heavier and thicker my phone has become.

    I too have the Seidio 3500 for my Dinc, as well as my girlfriends Dinc. Our phones are both stock other than the batteries, and with super heavy use from 7:00 am until 9:00-10:00 pm ish, I still have 20-30% on mine! And with regular use, with a lot of Stumble I guess, she gets 2 1/2-3 days!
    This battery makes these phones close to flawless in my opinion! The backs snapped on perfectly, and we both like the added weight and shape!

    I tried the htc battery for a day and returned it...the extended life battery is a great idea but it was too bulky and heavy for me...I would also have had to buy a new skin and holster...looking into alternatives now...good luck...

    I guess I should have done some searching before buying my extended battery at vzw. Though it gives me much more battery life than a stock battery, it still is down to 20-30% after 5PM. I am on The Facebook and Twitter alot so those big battery hogs. Plus youtubing and looking around in the forums. I often charge it while at work because I have pretty laid back job and I use it often while sitting at my desk.

    What is the impression of the 3500mAh battery sold at gorilla gadgets?

    3500mAh HTC Droid Incredible Extended Battery with Back Plate

    I'm assuming it's low due to the Incredible 2 coming out.....
