    As much as I wanna shoot motorola in the foot right now... there is something that absolutely has my interest 100% on the bionic right now. Has anyone tried out these 4000MAH or 4200MAH batteries on e - bay!?!?!?! X_X That would last me all day and then some! (of course only if I carry the other battery in my pocket but still this is insane! Are these good quality batteries that actually output that high?

    *crossing fingers for some good bionic news for once!*

    is a bay link allowed in these forums?

    I don't know if I'd trust aftermarket batteries. Plus it may SAY 4000mAh but it probably isn't. I just bought the 2000+ OEM Extended from VZW. These data issues (3G only for me) are killing my battery. I'd just go with oem. Just get 2 OEM extended batteries. Yeah they are not cheap. Better that than the battery explode or just not take a charge or last long. Not worth it IMHO.

    4000mah that should last you a WEEK lol ok maybe not all week but I can just imagine the hump that thing would create. I've been interested in Mugen, someone posted something interesting a while ago.

    And you might be able to still get the extended battery from Verizon at cheaper cus of the promo, make sure to ask around when you call

    Those big batteries are external, correct? I have seen externals that big on eBay before.

    It would be interesting to see how the Bionic circuitry works with the 3rd party extended battery. On my OG Droid I had the Seidio extended battery and it was hard on an unrooted phone to get an accurate reading. The stock battery indicator said the phone was dead long before it actually was. I ended up using the Battery Left widget, but had the setting for mv and not percentage. I knew that 4200mv was full and 3500mv was "time to charge." The Verizon extended battery seems to work well in terms of giving an accurate reading.

    See that's the kind of thing I'm worried about, many other chargers are not enough to properly charge the bionic as it is. If the battery isn't correct, what kind of problems could we have then? Some of these 4200mah batteries on bay look really well made including the cover that comes with them, so I was curious if anyone had taken the opportunity to give it a shot. and yes the VZW battery is very expensive lol. Supposedly it is easier to calibrate the bionic to different batteries though, as it has a learning curve. I know though (talking about 3rd party) the store reps told me I could use my D1 charger for the bionic... it would NOT charge on it, it just barely maintained charge.

    Get what you can, there isn't an extended (Official) Bionic battery to be had anywhere in the country. Warehouse is even empty.

    There is now. VZW online has them. I called Saturday. They were out EVERYWHERE! Looked online and called last night and they were in stock. Tell them you are having data issues see if they will knock off some of the cost.

    No problem. How long on LTE do you get from your Extended battery? For those in CDMA / 3G only. What is your battery life with the Extended battery. OEM. Thanks

    I'm in a solid 4G area and I get no less than 24 hours of what is heavy use for me.
    Typically it can run for 33-36 hours on a single charge even though I do charge it every night.. it's just nice to know that if I were away from power there would be some reserve.

    The times I've had to manually switch to 3G (when I know I'm going to be working in a basement for an extended period) the battery life has been excellent. I'd say it increases by nearly 100% when switched to 3G only

    About a days useage. At first you don't seem to notice much of a difference, but after you go back to the old battery, you find yourself missing the extended battery, if that makes sense.

    Well last Saturday it suddendly 'didn't recognize' the battery. Prompted me to insert a Motorola Battery or something to that effect, and was a '?' where the battery icon was... so, yep, replacing.

    I just looked at the Seidio 3500mah extended battery at seidioonline.com for $69.95 (ouch). While Verizon's extended battery causes a bump, it's nothing to Seidio's.

    One thing to consider; if you get a 3rd party extended battery, it may not fit the Bionic Dock and you may have to change the case (if you're using one).
