    There are no exact numbers. Some are throwing out that you'll get 1-2 hours more. It all depends on your usage.

    With the same usage on my Droid 2 with two different batteries, I got:
    1400mAh: 5-6hrs
    1800mAh: 11-12 hours

    I have two 1400 HTC batteries and the 2750 HTC battery. Most of the time I'll use the two 1400s, but keep the 2750 in my briefcase when necessary.

    I won't get another Seidio 'extended life slim' battery because they are poor quality, more expensive, and their warranty is not as good as Verizon's warranty.

    For my last 4 phones, I've had 2 or 3 back-up batteries. A long time ago, I decided not to let battery life be a factor in my choice of a phone, screen brightness, etc. This has served me very well over the years, but maybe the ThunderBolt's terrible battery life and especially the stupid battery cover will be too much for me, lol.

    I'm thinking about getting another normal battery. The only thing stopping me is the fact that the back case doesn't look so easy to take off. The way it has to "snap" back into place tells me it won't be long before I'll need to replace the back battery case. What are your thoughts on that (those always switching battery)?

    I am going to be switching to the standard battery for a while, until we can get an extended battery case. I have considered a second standard battery but I will hold off on that. I think the Seidio 1600mAh are overpriced big time, for a small bump in battery power they are charging twice the price. I don't think so.

    I LOVED the 1800mah battery on my DX. I hope they come out with something similar to that for the TB.

    I'm using the extended battery. Being able to use my phone HEAVILY for an entire day without having to charge it is worth the slight cosmetic discrepancy the battery causes. Plus It's not *that* bad. Christ, get over it already. And the leather case at the Verizon store fits it quite nicely. A little snug, but not too tight. I can still get it out and put it in with one hand while on my belt. When I get it broke in, it should be perfect.

    I wouldn't use extra batteries. its way too much of a b***h to get the cover on and off. I feel like I'm going to break it every time I do that.
