    No in my opinion. Why not wait as they are working on a 2800 extended battery.

    I should have mine tomorrow. My opinion is yes. The 2800 will change the form factor and come with a larger door. If that's not a problem for you, then go for it. It is a problem for me.

    In the PDA days I bought several of the enahnced Seidio batteries and although they were s small amount more, it was more than I had. I would have had to buy an extra battery anyway. So the extended battery worked for me as a main battery and the OEM became a spare.

    YMMV.

    2800mah sounds amazing but it does, of course, thicken you phone quite a bit. i like the slim extended because i can use the same battery door. just wondering if 50 bucks is worth the hour or so more of battery life. and i am guessing on the "hour" of extra life. thats why i made this thread. to see what people are getting with the extended battery. my use through out the day is moderate to heavy.

    It's such a small increase in mAh and on the Droid your battery lasts so wildly varying amounts of time based on it's use how would you ever know if you gained that extra 2 hours or whatever? While our original battery is labeled 1500 mAh it's actually 1540 FYI.

    Then factor in that:

    The Electrochemistry of the Siedio battery is probably not the cutting edge technology our original Droid X battery is.

    The phone will force a trickle charge at approximately the 1390 mA point just like on the standard battery. This will require hours to reach 1750mAh.

    And then there's this.

    They basically lie and say it's a small gain in battery power and people being... well people want to believe their money was well spent when in fact they used a super cheap battery cell that is no larger than the original.

    Sorry, I really like my extended battery. I got a 30-40% jump in battery, which is just what I needed since I use the phone so much. Got it while on a trip back to Rochester, NY (as I drove up from Florida), and it made a heck of a difference. Plus, I can still use my accessories with my phone.

    Bottom line, the value of it will be based on your usage, so you may need to try for yourself. Return it if you don't like it.

    jbjtkbw00, please specifically identify which extended battery gave you 30-40% more "jump" (whatever that means).

    The offical Extended battery available from Verizon (model number BH6X). It's a 1930 mAh extended version. Picked it up from a VZW store.

    BECAUSE I officially hate Seidio products now.
