    That sucker doesn't die easy (at least for me) is what I found out.

    I charged it to full, unplugged it and then used it a TON. More than I really needed to use it, in fact.

    The battery took 3 days, 2 hours and 11 minutes before the phone shut down on me. This, to me, makes it WELL worth the $50 I paid for it at the Verizon Store and also makes it something I'd recommend to anyone on the fence about actually shelling out cash for it.

    Anyone else having good results? Keep in mind I have had the battery like 3 weeks now. I completed this test last night at 7:48PM (when the phone shut itself down).

    On a related note... it took a few hours to charge back to full.

    Last Time I checked sedeio website they were in development of the 3500 mah. That total run time is awesome for that verizon battery. It may be worth the 50

    Only a 15% increase? Did you mean to say "a 300% increase"? I get 15 to 17 hours from my DX with about 1.5 hours of talk time and 3.5 hours of screen time. That includes tons of e-mailing, some texting, twitter, surfing the net, checkbook, a little gaming, Talking Tom (for my daughters), etc... I am quite happy with that, but 15-17 hours is a long way from 3+ days.

    Yeah because, you know, I gain a WHOLE lot by lying about it.

    Then again, you're the very same person who doubted that the OTA for Froyo was available when I was downloading it at 12:02AM on the day it was released.

    Seriously... either add something constructive, or stop replying. Or just ask yourself what I would gain from lying about this. Seriously. Ask yourself.

    Oh, 15% in mAh. I see what you're saying. Mathematically, it does cause you to raise an eyebrow. Well, I guess the obvious question is: Section Twelve, what kind of battery life did you get from your stock battery?

    My stock battery was getting about 15 hours with typical use and about 9-10 hours with heavy use.

    Also, the extended battery is more like a 28% increase, not 15%.

    Again, I have no reason to make this up. This is what happened. I used the phone. I was connected with Trillian, making calls, texting and browsing. Used the GPS (which I love, I sold my dedicated GPS) and even listened to some music.

    I travel a lot for work, so I had lots of time to mess with it on the road.

    No one who trolls really gains anything from it but yet people still do it... hmmm.

    And you saying your stock battery only got 15 hours makes it even more unbelievable. 1500mAh for 15 hours and now 1800mAh for 74 hours? Yea the math makes sense to me.

    I have the extended battery too but I don't get 3 days out of it. I don't see anyone actually doing this.

    What does your "ton" equate to? I'll text, surf, and google chat alot and my extended battery dies within twenty hours. If I let it sit without much usage it can go go days.
