    I have a huge discount at Verizon and was wondering if I should buy the extended battery there, or buy another brand one for my phone?

    Does the Motorola extended battery really make a difference?

    I have heard it definitely increases time between charges by a few hours... I've thought about getting it

    I bought this battery the same time I upgraded to my X. At first it lasted about as long as the stock battery, but after a week or so it's good for 11-12 hours with moderate use of the browser or other app. It's certainly better than having a small brick on the back of the phone like the larger batteries

    It picked up the extended battery a week ago from Verizon. It cost me $27 after discount. It has made a nice difference, I was on vacation this week and getting roughly 48 hours out of the battery between charges. On the stock default battery I was getting 24 hours or less.

    With my typical daily use, I gained about an extra 3 hours of use time (display on). The battery, even at full price, is well worth the price in my opinion.

    I have the extended battery but I got it on ebay. Not one of the knockoffs. It came with an awesome "shell" that fits perfectly with the extended battery. I definitely notice an improved battery life. Well worth it!

    Yes, get it. That's a good price and the extended run time is great. You shouldn't be disappointed.

    Makes a nice difference with golf GPS which keeps the display on for the whole round ~4-5 hours.
    I couldn't get through a whole round without the phone dying, but with the extended battery, now I can.
