    I bought a battery advertised as 1600mAH for mine, but it doesn't have any capacity marked on the packaging or on the battery. If it's better it sure isn't by much in my opinion. I just keep it for a spare.

    These cheap eBay batteries are useless, do not bother buying them.

    If you want to buy one, buy from an online trusted retailer, search to find something.

    Seidio will definitely be a good choice.

    Seidio has customer service issues as reported by many members, just a warning.

    I got the 2800 Seidio extended battery and case combo. It works awesome. I'm still breaking in the battery, but still no complaints.

    No need to break-in Li-Ion batteries. Use and charge as you please. Do a full discharge and recharge once in a while to make sure battery sensor in the phone reads the battery state correctly.

    Actually, that's the problem. See, android doesn't properly sense the actual life of the battery and gives incorrect readings of how much juice is left. When I first got the battery it was discharging after about 5 hours. I was really mad. To fix this though all you need to do is reboot your phone. After a reboot the battery shows about 80 to 100% again.
    the battery is great and has been lasting me 2 full days with medium use and leaving it on over night. But... because you cant trust the battery meter and you always have to reset your phone, I give it a 2/5 *'s (cause you never know if the phone is actually dead, or just needs another reboot). Its an amazing product and not seidio's fault the battery meter doesn't pick up the "battery on steroids" in its holster. If there's no fix with froyo I'm gonna return and just carry around an extra battery.

    Would it be possible for a coder to make an app, where you change the phone setup to calculate at a custom mAH setting

    I would not be so certain about android's fault here. There are batteries that simply do not give proper information and thus no phone will be able to estimate battery life properly.

    Alright guys I just got done reading the Seidio website about the battery meter and rebooting. Those have been my only quirks with it so far. I do a lot of overclocking and the temps seem to be pretty good. I like the case too. The fit is pretty good, one of the corners doesn't seat all the way on. I wouldn't be able to stand carrying around two batteries so I'm gonna rock this until I upgrade.

    I do not really trust batteries coming from anyone else than the phone manufacturer themselves. Also, I do not like the idea of changing the battery so I simply bought a anyo 5000mAh Li-Ion battery booster which allows connecting up to 2 USB devices at the same time. It should give around 3 charges for the Moto.

    I am still waiting for it to arrive but will report back when I get it and test it.
