    Well I wonder which is the typo/mistake then...thanks for pointing that out for everyone! I didn't notice that my first time reading through the listing, that's pretty misleading. I sent the ebay seller a message to see what he has to say on the issue and whether he could determine it for sure one way or the other. Anyone looking to buy it from Amazon may want to email them ahead of time to clear everything up.

    The fact that they use HTC's name and logo on the battery is a bit off putting to me. HTC is not the manufacturer. I smell a battery which will die in 3 months.

    Sent to the VZ store last night after spending a few days in a 4G area (Cincinnati). Wow, 4G is about as fast as my home Wifi network!

    But wow, the stock battery life was rancid. Since I needed A new screen protector and case, I decided to get a new battery.
    I went with the big dawg Because I got a discount for buying 3 accessories. I got the silicone case Because it's easiest to mod. I wanted a dock But they are sold out everywhere. I wanted a dock to charge 2 batteries But also to watch videos while charging. The placement for the charge jack is really inconvenient. Apparently using the dock makes it better.


    They asked me if I had problems
    registering the data plan when I got the phone, Which of course I did. They told me it was a specific type 3g server issue, and that a hard reset wasn't neccasary. The guy asked to see my phone So I let him check it out. He said my phone was fine But the problem was the phones were looking for a specific 3g network And disconnecting between the 2 types. I don't know if that is true or not.

    I sorta trust the VZ guys in store. But they did ask if I had a task killer app. I told them no because of the battery drain. The dude grabbed my phone and installed an app That he says doesn't drain the battery Because it's designed for the 2.2 system. The application is called TaskPanel Xtra. I guess I will give it a try. He said that if you don't have 2.2 it will drain the battery.

    So far this big 2700mah battery is awesome. I'm wondering if there's a certain type of way I should charge it since it's new? I just let it charge over night. But after it was fully charged I did a battery pull and let it charge some more before using it.

    I'm definitely going to be looking for a dock. I'm also hoping I don't screw up this case when cutting it to fit the bigger battery!

    Will keep you posted,

    Jason

    Just to follow up... this 2750 battery has been amazing so far! I'm not sure what this "dock" is that VZW was telling me about, because I couldn't find it at Amazon. I still need to mod my silicone case too. Highly recommended upgrade! I don't mind that it makes the phone fatter or slightly heavier either. To me, it's easier to hold!

    Can someone post more detailed pix of their "cut up" case to fit this battery? I have the VZ silicone case, and it should cut nicely. I would be more comfortable cutting it if I could see more detail around the top of the battery, both on and off the phone. Thanks!

    Jason,

    I had that same luck at first....then after the third day my extended battery has gone dead after a normal day of use. I haven't changed the settings at all. Not sure if I have a bad ext battery or not...

    There's a thread on this battery in the tb accessories forum. Someone downloaded an app that displays the battery mAh and the "1700" one displayed at 1350, the same as the stock battery.

    I'm bumming. My ext. Batt died last week. Before that my phone would last 2 days on a single charge.. now I'm barely lucky to do a few hours of heavy use. Ext battery is sold out everywhere. :(

    I have pretty much had the extended battery since launch, and it goes through weird cycles of lasting long and not lasting so good. My trick is to always charge at night when I'm asleep followed by resetting battery stats every week and doing them nice full charge. Always make sure to charge using a 850 miliamp charger or better (or you will wait forever). The stock charger is a 1amp charger.

    I get at least a good sixteen hours of very heavy LTE usage. I'm running a stock kernel with virusrom.
