    Zero, does this 1500mah battery add any extra thickness to the phone's battery compartment? Or is it identical in size to the current manufacturer battery? I'm going to be buying the otterbox case for the droid 2, I just want to be certain that the case will fit my phone comfortably, if I ever decide to buy this battery.

    If you get the extended batt from motorola/verizon, and want a case on it, you just leave the battery cover off. Then it will work with any case. The extended battery without a cover is flush with the original battery with the cover. The minimal change in maH is so small for this battery, i wouldnt bother, the one from verizon only gives you roughly 33% more life, i wouldnt spend money for a <10% increase.

    i just received this battery and placed in phone to charge. the packaging says first time charge for full 8 hrs. it also says max performance comes around after about 5-6 full charge cycles. so i'm going to run with this battery for a few weeks, should be done with conditioning in about a week ....

    i placed the battery in and the stock door closed fine with no added pressure. just like oem, so this validates your question ...

    I bought 2 regular batteries bp6x (sp) for 5 bucks each on amazon, and a double sided battery charger that's will charge them both at once, having 3 batteries is insane, I only have to charge 2 of them twice a week, and I love not having the extra thickness from the extended battery/case. Id recommend just buying some og batteries for 5 bucks a pop and the charger for 8 I think it was... so much cheaper, and I love never having to tether my phone to anything to charge it, all wireless all the time

    zero, how it is going with the evaluation - is this battery worth the money?

    ive only done a few trials but my charging opportunities are tied into my schedule which has been mostly running around lately ...

    ive so far managed to leave the device on external power for about 3-4 hrs after full, 3 times so far.

    ive had 2 trials so far of unjacking the phone@ 11pm, let it sit idle (battery profile set to turn off 3g after 15 mins) overnight. by 630 am the batt shows 60%, but thats after 2 alarms have sounded for about 5 mins (yea, im a heavy sleeper).

    come in to work, listen to some tunein radio, data is on, by 1030 am im@ 20%.

    so i am going from 100% to 20% in about 11-12 hours. but after charging again, not using the radio during the day, im usually running @ 50-60% after the same amount of hours

    last topped it off @ 2:30 pm and unplugged. it has been 6 hours since, listening to music (from SD card), browsing, some email, some background data. i am @ 70 %.

    just a reminder to those observing, my fone is rooted, i have setcpu profiles enabled and the phone is always underclocked (max 800 mhz) and i also have some bloatware and preinstalled services on my fone frozen using titanium backup.
    i keep wifi/bt/gps off. brightness auto, and battery profile set to turn off data after 15 mins between 7pm and 7 am ...

    just keep that in mind when comparing my power usage observations with what you'd observe on your device with the seidio 1500 mah batt.

    overall i feel i may have gained an hour or so over the stock battery. considering cost and that verizon would sell me the bp7x with the door for just about the same as this battery, i'm feeling the seidio is going back for a refund. but gonna use it for a few more days and see how i feel.

    update:
    since 2:30 pm yesterday it hasn't been plugged in. overnight there was no usage. so far it's been 18 hrs and the battery is at 40 %. that's better than the 11 hrs that passed during my last cycle with a battery level of 20 % ....

    it appears that the alarms use quite a bit of juice, because this morning the alarm didn't sound (even though i had it set to go off).
