    Looking forward to the extended battery and it doesn't require a replacement door :)

    Woot. I need an extended battery anyway but don't want the new back. I like my Pro's curve... Gives her a nice touch. Thank the extended back gives it more of a "chunky" look.

    Yea, I am using the extended batter from Verizon right now and it makes my Pro look fat lol. But I love the fact that I can use my Pro for the whole day without the battery dying :)

    WOO HOO !!! That's awesome news of an extended battery that will actually fit the original phone so I don't have to change my cases. Thanks for the heads-up!! That's AWESOME !!! :)

    I'm confused. I see this message posted on the page with the extended life battery..... ( seidioonline.com )

    "In order to obtain the full capacity of your Seidio battery, we highly recommend that you leave the battery/your phone on the charger for an additional 2-3 hours after the charging indicator turns green or the battery status shows full."

    Does this mean EVERY TIME you charge the phone or just the first initial charge ???

    Just the first initial charge, this is what they mean by conditioning the battery I believe

    Let's see...for $49.95 I can get a 1700mAh battery from Seidio or I can get a 1860mAh battery from Verizon...that's a 40% increase in battery power with Verizon for the same price. I guess it depends on your preference...battery life or back cover. I am glad to see a creditable supplier is coming out with some more choices of accessories for the Pro.

    I kind of thought that, but wasn't entirely sure. I leave my phone on the charger all night anyway because that's the only time I really charge it (unless heavy use during the day) and it also functions as my clock/alarm.

    Along those same lines....... Is there truth to the theory / suggestion that we should let the battery completely drain til dead when you first initially use a new phone/battery before charging it for the first time?

    Oooh....... good point! I didn't notice the mAh difference in the two. Hrrrmmmm.........

    I wouldn't MIND getting the bigger battery with the different back cover, but then I just need to find a manufacturer who makes a comparable COVER that fits over the adjusted size. *sigh*

    40% increase? Isn't it less than 10%? 1860-1700=160; 160/1700=.09. Or do you mean 40% increase over the original battery?

    Well, I guess it is how you want to figure it. The stock battery is 1460mAh...the Verizon is 1860mAh...a difference of 400mAh. The Seidio is 1700...a difference of 160mAh. 160 is 40% of 400. No matter how you figure it...your paying $49.95 for a battery that has either 1860mAh or 1700mAh.
