Two days after I contacted Hyperion, they sent me a replacement. Time will tell how this one performs. I'd love to see a solid few hours more of battery life, compared to the OEM extended Li-Ion. Assuming the JB OTA performs well, a longer battery life on my Bionic will give me reason to keep it a few months past my upgrade date.
Well, it seems Hyperion sent me a "good egg" Saturday because in the last 24-hrs, my Bionic has undergone both moderate and heavy use (with the screen on the brightest setting), and still hasn't drained the 4,000mAh battery down completely. However, both the built-in and GSam battery indicators have had it showing 1% for close to 10-hours now. I fully expected needing to charge it this morning, but that may have to wait until after lunch! I need to find a way to tweak this for accuracy. Still, I'm excited about the possibilities of going long periods of time without needing a charge!
On that note, does anyone know how to calibrate battery indicators for accurate readings? Will the Bionic or the GSam Battery app do this on its own? Or do non-OEM batteries prohibit accurate readings?

If you're rooted you can try clearing the battery stats. I'm not sure if you can do it in recovery on the Bionic but there are apps for it on the play store. Charge it all the way then clear it. Other than that there's not much more you can do.
