    ok, well it looks like the Tmobile MyTouch 4G uses the same battery as the Tbolt.

    someone correct me if im wrong, but htye look the same, and ive read a few places that they are the same.

    Amazon.com: T-Mobile HTC myTouch 4G 2x1500mAh Battery better than OEM + Wall Travel Dock USB Charger also for Merge TMobile GSM BD42100: Cell Phones & Accessories

    that offers 2 1500 MAH batteries and a battery charger for like $28... i might get that OR theres a mytouch 1650 mah battery and i might get that.

    idk, anyone else know any batteries that will work on the Tbolt?

    edit: Monday 3.28.11

    Got them in the mail. They fit right into the phone greatly. I like the red battery too... looks cool :)

    they work great. when i recieved them they were at 55% charged... ive been using it since 12 PM and it is now 5 PM. At 32%. ive got brightness at 40% and ive been searching the web for the past hour on wifi and before that id say 70 texts??

    anywho, they work. so there you go people. TWO 1500 mAh battery solutions for $28. :)

    yeah i wouldnt use ebay. everything off their is from chinese sellers and all fake.

    im thinkin bout gettin the extra 2 batteries cuz thatd be worth it over the 1650 mAh battery. even just a regular stock backup battery for the myTouch is like $12 on amazon, but for the Tbolt in the $20s range...

    also if the 1650 mAh battery would get me through the day thatd be very nice too.

    thought about the 2750... didnt like its bulg. also i like how this one com,es with a charger thatll charge the batteries without the phone present.

    i like that.

    the case isnt really hard to get off at all once you learn how. the first time was a ***** but its easy so i wont mind switching.

    and this is like half the price of the 2750 :)

    Just ordered the Seido my as well. Really not interested in popping the back off the phone to switch batteries out. You do that enough times eventually something is going to break. There has been some good reviews on the Seido. I'm also thinking a update will help us out a gtreat deal.

    if you arent a child and dont just tear the cover off, then you should have no problem with it breaking.

    really i wasnt even trynna get these batteries either but they mad me... they meaning whoever is at fault for the **** battery times.

    and if i was getting extra batteries i wasnt bout to drop a half bill on that ****.

    myTouch4G battery for the Thunderbolt

    I am not sure if the T-Mobile myTouch4G battery will work in my Thunderbolt, but there was only one way to find out. So I ordered one last night, Tuesday, 3-22. I hope that it will be here by Thursday, Friday at the latest.

    Whenever I looked up batteries for the Thunderbolt, they all seemed compatible with the myTouch4G. So I googled batteries for the T-Mobile myTouch4G and I found one on MUGENBATTERY.COM. It was a 1650 mAh so I ordered it and now I am patiently waiting for delivery.

    If it works correctly (and I'm sure it will), it will be my main battery for now along with my standard battery (as a backup) until someone (are you listening HTC & Verizon) comes up with a more powerful battery that's not so big or They design an upgade that will help correct and support longer battery life.

    I bought the Universal Battery Charter from VZW. It's a 1400 mAh battery that has a mini usb cable that you plug into your phone and it charges the phone. It's very thin and lightweight and very well designed. It can charge your phone in your pocket. I opted for this instead of a spare battery because I too believe that the battery door will eventually break if removed over and over. Works great.

    Even if for some reason your battery door did break I'm sure that they will be offering replacement covers eventually like they do for most phones. It shouldn't be more than $10.

    Exactly right about the battery doors. And even then theres a nice method to get them off without snapping it every time. If they do release an update and we get better battery life with stock batteries then these 1500 mAh batteries will last the whole day lol.

    how do you get it off without snapping??

    i got a imp500 (5000mah) external battery that charges the phone without wires and a car charger (droid from amazon) to help the battery issue (i hope).
