    I am looking for an extra battery and charger for my TB. I can get a stock HTC battery for $24.00 or the Seidio 1600 battery for 45.00. Is the seidio worth the extra money for 200 Mah.
    Does anyone know of a better deal

    I got the Seidio 1600 battery and multi-function charger last Friday. For me the larger battery is worth it. I am not a power user and so far the Seidio 1600 is good for my purposes. Though, I keep the oem HTC battery charged as a back up.

    I should also note I have been using my Thunderbolt since 6am with the Seidio 1600 and I have 70% battery left with moderate use. I live and work in a 4g area so rock the 4g 100% of the time.

    From my experience, unless the extended battery is significantly larger, it is always worth it to get the OEM if you have a bargain. Not only do some of the larger capacity non-OEM not work to the level advertised but, if they do, they may drop off several weeks later after website reviews are posted. ;) The Seidio may be a fine battery but it isn't much larger capacity.

    I wouldnt think that the 1600 is worth the money considering the 2750 is $49. I know some ppl dont like the bulk bit this phone is very advanced and i hate to have to skimp on the features just to have battery life. The display is beautiful i dont want to have to keep it on 40% lol ya know? If u want stock size batt id say buy oem!! Not a bad deal then u will have two 1400's good luck

    Get the Verizon 2750 mAh battery! Use the phone like it was designed to be used! I'm a power user and the battery lasts at least 16 hrs with everything on and updating.

    As far as the size, now its a man's phone. Slim is nice but it's for girls!

    Don't get the ebay batteries customers you don't know what you're getting. You spent at least $250 for your phone step up and rock with the extended battery.

    If only the 2750 fit into the car dock I would scoop one up. Does anyone with the 2750 think the dock could be modded to fit?

    don't know about the dock but bought a nice suction mount, thing sticks to everything, and has a gel tab on itthat the extended battery sticks to go in landscape mode or you can stand it up, but more secure landscaped $20
