    HTC Rezound 2750mAh extended battery is gigantic | The Verge
    View attachment 42582
    "At 0.54 inches thick, the HTC Rezound is already far from the thinnest smartphone LTE smartphone on Verizon — that distinction belongs to the Droid RAZR. HTC has included a 1620mAh battery within that frame, which should get you through a regular day, as we found in our review. However, there are times when you need more and HTC is obliging with an extended battery for the Rezound. Clocking in at 2750mAh, the extended battery is not fooling around when it comes to added juice, but the thickness it adds to the Rezound is substantial. Htcpedia, which briefly examined the battery, estimates that the total thickness the the extended battery is 3/4 of a inch.The battery comes with a cover to accommodate its girth which matches the original's textured back but does away with the Beats Audio branding. The back is especially important because the antenna for the Rezound is built into it — so it's likely that if you're looking for an extended battery for the Rezound, this is your only option. However, there may be also an inductive charging option on the way, if HTC's modification to its FCC filing for the device is any indication. The battery retails for somewhere in the neighborhood of $50."

    OMFG! That appears to be even bigger than the Droid X extended battery. The issue with these is rarely does anyone come out with a protective cover you can use in conjunction. I know I could never find one for my Dinc or my X. I did manage to manufacture one though. :p

    I call that the "Business battery". My local store couldn't even order it and I have the HTC part # so I will probably order one on the HTC store.

    theyre making media docking stations with inserts that allow for the extended battery too. I havent gotten mine yet, been debating on which phone, but after reading myself stupid on all the reviews, having a car dock that accomodates the extended battery was the icing on the cake for me.

    i agree. I just hope i can find a holster that will fit on my belt that doesnt have one of those cheap ass'd belt clips that break at the drop of a hat. Im in construction and some of the tight areas i have to get in tend to grab the holster and pull it. The cheap clips on most of the belt holsters just snap. Ive found ONE that works great for my DroidX, but i dont think the larger Rezound will fit in the velcro case of this one.

    There seems to be a lot of dead air space in that extended back. It looks like they could have made a 4000+mA capacity battery by using Li-Poly technology as it could have filled every nook and cranny of the over-sized back.
