    Here is the latest answer by HTC/Verizon to address the battery sucking power issue of the immensely popular but power hungry ThunderBolt.

    The press release says "Engineers are presently hard at work to create a new back for the phone to accommodate the new battery". They also went on to say it should add at least 45 minutes to the life of the phone.

    The cable are also shielded to prevent accidental burns caused by the massive amperage draw, but can be removed to roast weenies or marshmallows.

    I was gonna get the TB until reading about the battery life. This is definitely a deal maker. Does it come with marshmallows? lol

    Wait, so instead of getting a full day+ out of my TB battery without an extra charger OR battery, I could just carry this around?!? Where have you been all my life.....


    Everyone having battery issues must be doing something wrong, I get 12+ no problem, moderate use including navi, web, youtube, angry birds, calls, texts and emails.

    Can you get a case around it (maybe with the battery door off) and then will it fit in a car dock?!
