    Innocell 2600mAh Extended Life Battery

    [​IMG]

    This extended 2600mAh battery (vs the 1350mAh stock one) thus far has been great. Although likely not quite double the life, I'm no longer paranoid I'll make it though a day without depleting a battery. I'm really digging the fact that the physical extension of the larger battery also provides so many great new ways to hold the phone while in landscape mode. Of course I'm going to have to buy the Seidio car and desk docks to keep my docking functionality, but overall I have to say kudos to them for producing this much-needed Droid accessory and other supporting accessories so quickly!

    It may increase your battery life, but given that it doubles the thickness of the DROID, negates the use of both the car and multimedia docks, and has to be one of the ugliest add-ons imaginable, I think I'll pass and just stick with the standard battery.

    That would be nice it weren't so damn big!!! Lol... I would love to have that much extra battery, I think it would be worth it despite the ugliness

    I'm gonna have to agree with both of the above comments. Who the hell gave the "OK" for that design, they should be fired, immediately.

    My last phone was a Samsung i760 which came with the extended battery from Verizon. The difference in thickness of the battery on that phone was nowhere near as extreme as this one. For the size, you would think you would get triple the battery life.

    Yeah, another regular battery in a pocket would be my choice... I would even consider using a really long extension cord before using that thing.

    I had the same thoughts from the pics about thickness, but overall the phone is no thicker now with the extended battery than the treo 755 I once carried.

    Of course it's not pretty, but until an Industrial Designer comes along and makes them look sexier I'll enjoy this one just the same.

    I've got to go with the first few posters. That thing is hideous and ridiculously over sized... One reason I like this phone is the streamlined design (it's sleek and clean)...
    They should have looked into various other methods if that was the desired capacity (i.e. extending over some of the speaker or the back of the phone or something). Hopefully they'll get the slim-extended out before long (though I easily get a full day out of a charge so I'm in no rush).

    Thank GOD. I just about ALWAYS make it through the day without depleting the battery [though I do tend to have to charge it every night...], but I wouldn't mind it lasting longer/not having to worry about how much I use my phone later in the night to avoid it dying before I plug it in to go to bed.
