    Quoted for reference. Using extended battery now, with wifi. BT still off. 14 hrs 45 min hours on battery, same 2.5 hours screen on time, still at 60%. Looking much better now. Will post results when I drain this one completely down, trying to do a calibration. Im actually getting used to the size of this thing, and find it easier to hold with the larger battery.

    Yesterday I had the phone unplugged for 9.5 hrs and it went down to around 25-30% with moderate usage. Half the day at work on LTE, the other half on wifi.

    I have noticed some weird stuff with the stock battery % reading. If you plug in a charger any time the phone is over 90% it will tell you it's fully charged. But of course I just look at circle battery widget and see it's not and is still charging and let it finish out. Also, the battery pic in the notification bar is always off. I'll be at 40% and by glancing at the battery pic you'd think I was at 75%.

    Heck, the case they sold me with my stock bionic looks identical to this phone with the extended battery. Not sure if they did this to create air flow for the phone or not. If not, it looks like I may have a case that will work with the extended battery

I haven't adjusted any other setting. For those wondering what it looks like check here: Droid Bionic extended battery | Android Central
    Where did you get this battery? Did VZ have it or did you have to order it off the internet?

    Are you referring to the plastic hard case/holster combo? Yes, that one will fit the extended battery, and it is currently the only case available that will fit the extended battery.

    The extended battery is being carried by Verizon. Since Verizon is currently running a promo where they are selling LTE phone extended batteries for 50% off, your store may be out of stock on them. However, they can order it and ship it to you (had to do this for my son's Bionic, the store had more Bionics in stock than they had extended batteries).

    Drain and Fill has worked wonders for my battery life
    I drained the battery all the way to 0% (phone shutoff) - battery pull and press power button for at least 10 secs
    Plug in and let the phone charge to 100%.

    Do this 2 times and you should see better battery life.

    Another thing I found is that Skype running in the background will KILL your battery because it's constantly using the LTE radio even if you're not using it if you're logged in.

    That's why you should always exit Skype when you're done using it.

    One more report : Got the phone Saturday afternoon, nothing really interesting to report other than I drained it almost to phone shut off.

    Day 2: Sunday. Off charger at 6:30AM. Traveling most of the day to and from my daughters soccer game. In and out of 4G service areas. Display on MOST of the time. Using browser extensively, google maps, camera, facebook, email, and LOTS of text. Battery was at 20% at 6.5 hours, by 7 hours it was nearly dead, back on charger just before phone shut off.

    Not the greatest life, but it was pretty heavy usage, will see how it behaves this week (will be in 4G Monday - Thursday). If I cant get a full day out of it with my "normal" usage (NOT what I did yesterday), Ill have to pick up an extended life battery.

    Today will not be a good test as it has been on the USB cable for a while this morning migrating stuff from the old OG droid.
