    I think something is clocking up the processor while the screen's off by default.

    I wish it could be so. The 1600 mAh sells for $49.95 seidioonline.com

    The price for the 2750 must be closer to $100 right?

    Wow, I stand corrected, the 2750 with cover is $49.99 through Verizon, I just went to the web site. How can they do that?

    I got it free from verizon, I had a good manager. I had some problems that day that were actually my fault, they fixed it. The manager even told me a story to tell verizon when calling customer service for the free battery. It really costs 50 dollars though, not 100, not 90, not a penny more than 49.99

    Yeah, I just bought one. $50 for 2750 mAh when Seidio is charging that much for 1600? How could I not get it. Plus I have a discount from work with Verizon, it cost me $37.50. How could I not? LOL. dancedroid

    I figure when going on trips, I pop it out and put the standard one back in to fit in the car dock, but for every day use using the extended, I can ramp this thing up a few notches. I am happy.

    When I picked up my Thunderbolt in the Verizon corporate store, the salesman asked if I wanted the extended battery (with battery cover). The box had a price sticker of $49.99 on it. I'll wait......I would rather have a case on the phone and my battery life isn't too terribly bad right now.

    I just don't want a phone with a hump in it. It looks bulky and pregnant.

    If it gave birth to new baby TB's every nine days that would be different.

    I found a little tidbit of info that might help some people with horrible battery life,

    xda-developers - View Single Post - some program is chewing up battery - what is it???
    It looks like the Blockbuster app was really killing his battery, which may be the issue that some are having. I'm suspecting that this is one of the more likely causes as my battery has been pretty much perfect and one of the first things I did was turn this off (well, before actually removing it and all the rest of the crapware).

    Help Me Find My Battery Eater

    First, please don't merge this topic.

    I unplugged my phone at 100% charge around 230am, woke up around 1015am with literally 50% left. I had WiFi on the entire night (strong signal).

    Unplugged 7h 39m
    Cell standby 30%
    Phone idle 29%
    WiFi 16%
    Android OS 8%
    Maps 7%
    Android system 7%
    Display 2%

    I've stopped blockbuster, removed city id. My only widget is the clock/weather widget set to update every 2 hours (hence maps).

    Auto-Sync off, Facebook/twitter updates off.

    Looking at my battery history under partial wake usage there is nothing abnormal. What could possibly be killing my battery so much?

    I'm really looking for some help here guys.
