    Well The Dark Night has finished playing (all 2.5 hours of it) and now I have "revenge of the Sith" playing. Still at 78%. (Screen brightness is at 50%)

    There is something VERY fishy going on here as I barely made it to this time of day with more than 30% battery and that was without taxing the system.

    I am calling shenanigans on HTC claiming the stock battery is 1400mah. (Either that or this thing has way more than 2750mah capacity).

    Actually I like the way the phone *feels* in my hand when using it. Due to the large screen size the way my hands have to hold it with the stock battery there is a gap under the base of the phone as my fingers cup the sides. The extended battery fills this cupped area nicely.

    I am opting out of a ext battery.. for i work on a computer all day.. mid day bump charge is no big deal for me..

    80% battery left.. 3h2m since unplugged.. minimal usage.. few txts here and there.. but im playing MP3s... i will not have that battery sticking out so fugly like that.. i will just charge when i get to 50% no big deal for me..

    congrats to the OP tho..

    My battery experience

    I only had the phone 2 days. Yesterday, let it fully charge. I was on it almost 4 hours non stop and still had over 1/2 battery left. Charged it overnight. Turned it on at 5:30 this morning. I used it some during the day... took a few pics, sent many text messages, surfed a little on the internet (checked facebook, etc.). It's now 3:30 PM and I have over 1/2 battery left. I am in a 3G area though. The verizon rep told me the battery problems are mostly in 4G areas and that HTC is working on a software upgrade to correct this problem. Hope they are right and that it's corrected before I have 4G.

    im in a 4g area.. i have great battery life imo.. i cant complain really.. the battery talk is overblown.. once your battery has a couple full discharges.. it works out great.

    Well the battery life continues. Been off the charger for 8 hours now, 5 hours of movie playing and just now starting up the 3rd movie, screen set to 88% brightness and I am STILL at 51% battery.

    I got my 2750 with the phone and it does last longer...duh. Try this and let me know what happens. Pull it put it back and let the phone reboot. Let me know if the batt% drops significantly after you put it back in. I have been testing this and it's bugging me pretty badly right now.

    Was getting great life out of it today and then pulled the batt. Before the pull it was at about 45% after I put it back in and rebooted it was at 21%. Now...either the boot sequence killed over 20% of the battery or the OS is not properly reporting the life.

    That's exactly what I'm going to do. Set up profiles with set CPU and I'll be good. I may get the 1600mah battery soon as well from AndroidSpin. I also heard of a possible 1800 coming soon. Same size not extended battery covers.

    Nate. Get the batt down to about 50% or so and pull it. Put it back in and tell me what happens. Mine drops almost 20% after the reboot. I don't think the phone is reporting the correct % remaining.
