    Extended Battery - Quick Initial Impression

    JUST got my extended battery delivered and wanted to write my first thoughts on it.
    First off... the battery itself felt quite heavy in my hand when I pulled it from the box.
    The new back cover gives the phone a much more OG Droid feel since it's squared off.. however there is that strange dropoff where the camera is near the top of the phone.
    While I actually like the styling the new back gives the device.. the battery itself adds a LOT of heft to the device. It's going to take me some time to get used to it.

    Battery only had 25% charge when I dropped it into my phone.. will have to plug it into my car charger most likely since I have some running around to do this afternoon.

    Will give a more detailed review after I have a chance to do a proper drain and fill on it.
    You know how that rabbit feels

    Great; I plan on picking one up hopefully today myself. Let us know how it goes. The phone currently is pretty light; almost too light so I'm curious to see how much more it adds to it.

    I picked it up a couple of days ago. I actually like the added weight. Gives it a nice heft, but not too much. I also like the way it changes the shape; I found the phone easier to grip with the larger cover, but maybe that's just because I have big hands.

    Keep your charger or old battery handy though, at least at first. On the first day, I saw no improvement over the standard battery. On the second day (today), it was at 60% with moderate use after being off the charger for about 6 hours, but then it dropped to 20% after I played Angry Birds for over an hour. I think it's just going to take a few cycles to get to its potential, but I can tell a difference already and for $25, I'm happy. Once it's broken in, there shouldn't be any problems getting through an entire day on it with no less than moderate use.

    I bought the extended battery for my Bionic because i had one on my OG Droid and because it was only $25. At this point im not sure if I will use it yet as im getting extraordinary battery life from my Bionics stock battery. When I got my Bionic I drained the Battery, recharged, drained again and recharged. Yesterday according to the Battery stat screen I had 16Hours 34Mins on Battery with just about 5 hours with the display on and i had 50% battery. I surfed the web, played some games, a few phone calls, tons of texts, listened to pandora all on 4G.

    Thank you Sir; interesting. So the top portion actually sinks in.

    I'd really like to pick up an extended battery also, but it does NOT look like it will work with the case I have ordered...
    I like to watch debates, especially when they're fair!
    Another definition of ghey: When a self appointed "referee" decides to join a "debate" (that's okay) but then decides to end/close the "debate", only because both sides have valid points & he/she just can't win and/or doesn't want to hear the other opinions any longer...

    Sorry, I only check/subscribe to threads that I've started, not all the ones I've posted in , PM me instead.
