    That's great news! And the fact that you dont have to add any thickness to the phone makes it perfect.

    I am really hoping this will help. My battery life has improved somewhat with use but I could still use some more time on a charge. I've used Seidio extended life batteries for Palms in the past and they were worth the $$... here's hoping!

    If this battery checks out well is there a way we could get a price break for a large order?

    What is the storage capicity of the stock battery? Approximatly how much additional battery life would the extended battery provide?

    Got the 1750mah battery for my wife's Eris

    No more "almost empty" battery at the end of the day. The battery cover does not fit perfectly on the slightly larger battery (I noticed a small gap), but it's not significant enough to affect the fit of a hard case she has for the phone. For the Eris, this battery is a "must have."

    That's really cool that someone is making those batteries (assuming they're reliable and live up to their mAh rating).

    But I wish they made something in the middle. The 1750 battery, assuming the mAh ratings are comparable adds 450mAh, or 35% more runtime. The 3500mAh battery is great, but - it looks like it about *doubles* the width of the phone (it's awesome they posted side by side pics on their site, though!).

    I'd be happier with a battery that added less width - doubling the runtime with a 2600mAh battery, or maybe like 75% more runtime even, with a battery that just added a millimeter to the phone would be ideal (IMO). :)

    Anyone get the one bigger battery with the new back cover? If so can you post a picture of how much thicker it is?

    Does the black match the rest of the phone?

    I got my 1750 mah yesterday. Charged it, started up the phone... :mad: - Lots of calibration issues (re-calibrated), corrupted email links (un & re-installed), lots of slow-to-load apps... finally it settled down and is fine now. The insert said battery life will improve after 5-6 full charges. My goodness though... what a trauma! (Just cannot wait 'til that 2.x update... what will it do with that, if a battery causes such issues! :icon_eek: )

    I know this may be asking too much, is there anyone who can post pics of how the stock case looks with this battery installed? I'm really anal about little stuff like this, I wanna get this battery, but not if the cast doesn't fit perfectly and doesn't feel tight.

    So, have you had any battery issues since the initial chaos? What kind of battery life are you getting? And how about a foto?

    All is serene. No more hiccups. I am still recharging at night. Starting full in the early morning and using it for a wide variety of things during the day, I end up with about 60% by about 9 PM. This is a little better than the standard battery was early in its life. As I used the standard battery the life became longer and I am sure this one will as well - it does take time and several recharges. As to a photo, there is absolutely no discernable difference between this and the standard battery, period. The back fits exactly like it did before. I am very pleased to be able to say that!

    Updates from those that have had this battery for a while now? Any better? Same? Worse?

    Better! Mine hold's well all day now, as opposed to running down to around 30%. It now reads aroound 80% on average, mixed use, by evening. I'm glad I got this battery - still a nice, slim phone, now with better battery life.

    Oddly, it drops by about 30% overnight! I have no clue why...?? (I have read about some Droids calling random phone numbers during the night... what a thought! :icon_eek: Mine shows no sign of such tricks, thank goodness!)
