    I just got the bionic yesterday and did a full charge overnight and after 4 hours today its at 60 percent. Will the extended battery get better. By the way I keep 4g on all the time except if if I am using wifi

    It will get better. I get about 20 hours on the standard battery and 32 on the extended battery. They have both been through SEVERAL full charge/discharge cycles. When I first got them, they were dismally bad. Now they're awesome.

    I also keep 4G on all the time.

    You will definitely be happy with the extended battery. The other day I didn't plug my phone in all the way to charge so when I woke it was at 50% (I had taken it off charge at 6am the previous day)...I made it through the next day to about 6pm (still with 25%!) which is when I put it on charge...so that's about 36 hours...I think that very good for a smartphone & all the use I give it.

    This kind of resurfaces a question that I never seem to be able to reach a firm answer on round these parts...
    I read online that is it NOT good for the battery to perform full discharges at all (man, that sounds porny), and then I will also read that it can be beneficial to do it many times (still sounds porny), and then I will ALSO read that it's ok to do it once or twice, but that's all (that sounds anti-porny).

    Was there ever an end-all / be-all resolution to this question?

    I use one, works great. Life will vary depending on how you are using the phone. Go through a few total discharge/recharge cycles, it will get better. Enjoy!

    Also remember that the extended battery will take longer than the stock battery to recharge.

    mine took about 3 full cycles (drain and fill) before it really started to impress me.
    drains about 3% an hour when I'm in a solid 4g area. which is quite acceptable.

    Yeah on 4G I get about 4% an hour. On 3g it is 1% or less. Not too bad.

    That's what I wonder. I've many battery conditioning guides that say fully discharge, and then some users come up and say it's bad. I honestly don't know what to believe (since I'm not in the know how with batteries).

    With old style nicad ,discharging was a good idea. It is not with modern batteries.
