I've had the TB since it came out in March and use it as a phone/computer for leisure/business/school as I view my notes, my calender and my personal/business (and school) emails. The battery life is decent at 12-15hrs with heavy use (on 3G and wifi) throughout the day which for me, that's texting, use of web, use as an actual phone, and the use of an extra hard drive for my schoolwork. I charge it every night and when I don't have time or forget to charge it, I always have a charger or replaceable battery in my bag.My question is:
Innocell 1750mAh Slim Extended Life Battery or Desktop Charging Cradle? (Both from Seido)
I've always had an issue with the charging port with dumb phones I've owned where the port itself would become rather loose. This was mostly because I use my phones an alarm clock and keep my phone relatively close to the bed. When I got my DROID in 09 and ever since (Sans the DROID Incredible and ThunderBolt), I had used a dock with every Android phone I had gotten from Verizon; those being the Motorola DROID, Motorola DROID Pro, and the the two mentioned before. The dock has allowed me to keep it in a space so I wouldn't ended up moving the phone while I slept, thus keeping me from a messed up charge port. I WOULD pick up one from Verizon if it was in their actual system.
As for the battery. I own the battery that came with the device and one I picked up from Verizon during an outing. Problem is, I have several microUSB cords from owning these awesome devices but do not have any extra chargers for the HTC battery besides the one I'm using for my Bolt itself. I only have one that is interchangeable with the the DROID and the DROID Pro because of their battery type.
The two items listed would both be useful but as of now, I will only purchase one. One can help keep from a loose port AND an extra slot to charge my spare and the other can give extra usage (but higher price). Thoughts on this?
