    How many hours do you get with your HTC extended battery?

    I'm only getting around 10 hours (which isn't horrible, but I expected a little more)

    This is only on 3g as well. Is it possible I got a bad battery and should take it back to Verizon?

    I get almost a day and a half depending if I'm up at my cottage where I get like no service to some service on and off so it drains battery like a mofo so it lasts like 8 hours but on a normal day with 4g I get about a day and a half. I would make sure you are conditioning your battery right and if you doing that you could try bump charging if that doesn't work I would defiantly take it back

    Hmmm what's bump charging?

    Also what are the chances I just got a bad battery? Does that happen sometimes?

    Which extended battery are you using? Also, does anyone know which extended batteries, on eBay, are good or bad for the price?

    With heavy usage (200 emails and 3+ hours of talk) I am now getting 12 to 15 hours on a charge. I attribute this to two factors, first the extended battery and second I live in a mostly 3g area so I turned off 4g.

    10 hours on an extended batt sounds pretty bad, sorry to say. I easily get more than that on the stock batt.

    15 plus hrs on my 3500 mah battery. And that's with txting, email push, netflix and every setting set when I first got it. News and stock sync turned off though.

    I get about 36 hours with a little more than moderate usage. In 4g the entire time I get about 24 to 30 hours. With the extended battery. I was getting less then 12 with the stock battery. Well worth the 50 dollars.

    I was using the 2750. Bump charging is when you charge until its green and then turn it off and un plug it and plug it back in wait for light to turn green and unplug and turn on and plug in again and wait for green light again. It helps a lot.
