    Not sure if this is new news or not, but first I've seen...

    Also never had any experience with Mugen, but generally hear good things about them.

    Mugen's site says they're out of stock, but it looks like they're available on Ebay. Caveat emptor on the legitimacy of those... though they're reputable sellers, and the picture in the second one is identical to the one on Mugen's site.

    I'd love to avoid the extended on this phone that does me pretty good already... so every little bit (that can fit in the stock case) helps!

    This battery fits within the regular battery door right? I might have to get one too.

    Supposed to, and looks like it... I doubt it'll be a huge difference, but even a little bit is good - I get pretty good battery life on the stock battery anyway, so a small improvement is fine with me... especially as monstrous as the ext. battery is!

    Since I got mine as a replacement for my Bionic they actually sent me an extended battery instead of a standard free of charge. I'm not a fan of it, especially since I was a fan of the Bionic's extended and I really like the sleek look of the standard door Rezound. I usually end the day with about 30-40% left, so even if it's a bit less than the extended it shouldn't change my experience at all. If it does, I'll just turn the brightness down a bit or something...

    It certainly appears that this battery is a good replacement for the stock one, although my stock battery is good.
    I probably will buy this one from Mugen !

    I like external batteries because you can keep the stock case, use the external to charge multiple devices including other phones and bluetooth, plus you can carry crazy lonv charges with you, like 11,000 mah.

    I use one that's about 7500 mah. It might fit in a pocket, but it's big. They come in lots of sizes from 300 to 11,000 mah. You can definitely find a pocket size one.

    Cheap HTC OEM Batteries

    I don't know about the quality of Mugen batteries. I'm not saying they're not as good as OEM. I'm just saying I have no personal experience with them. That price seems rather high, if you look at it on a "per mAh" basis. Just FYI, for those who don't want to spend that much, the standard HTC battery has really dropped in price. They can also be found on eBay, but eBay is notorious for counterfeit batteries and memory cards, so I would avoid them.

    I got the shipping confirmation email on Sunday, which I thought was weird, so I'm expecting it sometime today. *crosses fingers*

    Lookin forward to hearing! One disclaimer, sometimes extended batteries from non-OEM mfgs drop the first 10-20% real fast then slow down. So if it starts off poor, don't jump off the ship immediately!

    My extended sits in a drawer, probably for when I go on a trip, it was just way to bulky and took me about a day to realize it. I have managed through habit though to make the original battery last all day, by plugging it in whenever i get in the car or walk in the house.

    In general, the from what I've read and personally experienced, you really need an external charger that is at least 4 times the capacity of the device you wish to recharge in order to actually be worth buying. This is because these devices passively charge your phone and thus not every mAh of capacity on the charger will transfer over to your phone... It's almost as if the charger follows a charging gradient and thus once the chargers capacity is around 20 percent left of its own charge, it is unable to recharge your phone because the gradient is not big enough.

    I tried an Energizer XP4001, which has a 4000 mAh capacity, and it was only able to recharge my old Droid Razr 1 and a half times... Compared to the New Trent IMP99D with a 9900 mAh capacity was able to recharge my Droid Razr 4 and a half times.

    Here is my review of the New Trent

    My personal advice is this: if you want a portable charger for the Rezound, get one with at least 6000 mAh capacity to make it worth while. It won't be very light, but anything smaller is only gonna give you 1 or 2 full charges. If you want something light and portable then get an extra battery to carry with you. That will guarantee one full charge and is only a fraction of the weight of a portable charger.
