    Is this battery actually worth the 50 dollars or should I stick with the one that came with it or get a charger and another stock battery. My phone with stock can last me over half the day with moderate to heavy use...I would go with the siedo but that seems to big...what is youlls opinions on all them

    I ordered a Droid 2 extended battery for my Droid 1 and the battery life is significantly better. After 16 hrs I would have 50-60% charge versus 20-30% with the standard battery. I was also using P3's LV 125/1000 kernel. The last few days I have been running ChevyNo1's LV 250/1000 kernel and noticed quite a bit of battery drain.

    I paid less than $50 for my Seidio 2800mah extended battery, directly from Seidio....so IMO it's not worth it

    i was thinking bout getting that one as well...i know that one would be better than the 2 other ones, but i just dont wanna get something that is way too bulky in my pocket as well....so i am weighing out the pros and cons for the 3 ..i just want the charge to last all day no matter if i use it heavily or hardly none..i am not worried for it lasting 2 or 3 days

    Yeah, i got my droid 2 ext batt for my D1 for $30 shipped from Verizon, so i wouldnt say a slim one is worth 50. The D2 batt adds so little thickness, i dont even realize that its there anymore.

    I use my phone HEAVY all day, and this 2800mah lasts throughout the day right into the night...I charge it for six plus hours every night and do it again the next day, it is perfect for what I need

    I'd like to know this as well! I'd love an extended battery but I don't want to throw out my shell/holster combo either. Was leaning toward a D2 battery just to see.

    Some might think it is bulky but to me it makes the phone easier to hold and it acts as a kickstand while watching videos.

    I was able to get a 25% discount from Verizon by calling them directly. I think I got free shipping also. Just tell them you are ordering it as a gift for a friend with a Droid 2.

    +1 on this. I have the 2800 Seidio as well and it absolutely makes the phone easier to hold. I did however buy and now use the D2 extended battery. While I do really miss the "hand grip" effect of the Seidio battery, the slimmer D2 battery gets me through a full day and plays better with the battery meter than the 2800 did.

    On days when I go fishing and may be on the boat all day and in areas with less than idea signal strength I still use the 2800 Seidio. It's a beast when it comes to longevity.

    Have I sufficiently confused this issue?? If not I can keep typing!!:icon_ banana::icon_ banana:

    Good luck.
