1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Greetings all,

    I can only use my Droid 2 with the original battery for about 4 hours. Granted I'm doing a lot with it, but that is hardly a half a day on a charge. (And I'm not going to use the "task killers" that I've been warned about using.)

    So I purchased an extended batter (2800mha) and I get just about the exact same battery life as with the original battery.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a battery that truly extends the life of the phone on a single charge?

    Thank you.

    Just a quick update on this: I found out from the manufacturer of the battery that you can just keep using the phone even when the battery level shows 5%. So I tried that, and it kept right on going for another 4 hours (and is still going even now). So I got at least 8 hours out of the extended battery (2800mha), but the last 4 hours the meter showed 5%. You just have to disregard the battery meter.

    Just wanted to let you know.
