    Has anyone been able to find a case for the phone with the extended battery. I haven't and if I do I will post.

    So how do they work? I was just on Amazon looking at these batteries prior to skimming this post. If I can get a couple days out of this phone on one charge then I may buy one.

    Currently running my exact signature setup... -50uv 1ghz kernel as I have no need for Overclock right now, Juice Defender default setup at night and heavy use during day with GPS always on and Nexus live wallpaper set I get around 32-34 hours between charges...maybe more at times....I calibrate the battery stats with the app Battery Calibration every couple days or so since I flash things constantly....

    Hope that gives you a good idea....its literally a night and day difference in battery life...I love it

    I recently just bought an extended battery for my D3. I factory reset my phone before I used it just to make sure I didn't have any apps that would drain my battery. I charged it fully, then used it until it was out of juice, then charged again.

    This thing dies just as quick, if not quicker than the crap stock battery. Is this a normal thing? Does the life get better after breaking it in, or did I get a bad battery?

    I don't know why I have read "great reviews" about the D3's battery life, but in my experience so far (and this includes getting the phone replaced, AND the battery), the D3 battery life is abominable.
    I am extremely disappointed and I find it downright despicable that a phone should lose half its power by making a few phone calls.

    I'm seriously considering finding something that has much better life.
    I'll be posting another thread with my experiences, asking for some advice, but so far, my response to you is that the D3 simply gets horrible battery life. Don't expect more than a few hours before you need to charge it. Long gone are the days of using your smartphone all the way until nighttime.
    I used to be able to do that with my WinMo Samsung phones (i730, i760, Saga, Omnia), and those phones did everything I needed.
