    No offense but that's a horrible solution. I tether often throughout the day. There's no way doing that is convenient. I'd rather carry 3 batteries.

    Need feedback on

    1) performance of extended battery vs. stock battery
    2) identify if there are multiple extended batteries available, and which is best

    I can already tell, this will be a 'plugged in if near power' device.

    That is the only option there is for now AFAIK.

    Actually, that isn't too far off from my OG Droid's battery usage. I always have a charger with me and almost daily plug into my car charger to bolster it for the second half of the day. And sometimes at night, I charge it again. So, this doesn't really bother me...

    I just walked out of the Verizon store with an extended battery and back, price was like $40 bucks out the door, it was marked 50...the guy said 39 + change, I go...alright? I have big hands and actually prefer the bigger case. I'll report back with some real world usage in a few days...until then here's hoping for root instructions

    I dont mind the battery use. I think the phone is amazing. I dont expect these phones to last long considering Im always playing with it. I just always make sure I am prepared. I make sure everytime Im near a charger Im charging it. I notice my Fiancee always complains about her battery life but everytime we are in the car she isnt charging her phone, the way I see it thats her fault. I am curious to this massive extended battery. Is the back door huge?

    I guess I'll wait for that rooftop lightning rod charger in the Verizon commercial to be stocked be
    fore I upgrade. I thought that was just hype...

    I'm sure between Locale/Tasker and SetCPU the battery life can be significantly improved.

    Yeah, you shouldn't have to, but it's not that bad to learn Locale and it's got a ton of other useful features. I love having my settings change automatically based on location.
