Default possible upgraded slim battery now available

on my orig inc i replaced the stock slim battery with a slim battery for the evo that gave us a little longer battery power. there were a few brands that we used (i used the chi chi tech ones) with no issues. they were great because they fit under the stock battery door and did not make the phone bigger.

we may finally have an option now for the inc4g. i think it comes stock with a 1700 battery, here's a 1930. i not seen any reviews of this battery yet for $30 i may test them myself...

5IN1 for HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE Verizon

If I knew someone else who had one, I'd buy it and split it with him. I really don't need an upgraded battery, and I certainly don't need two.

a quick update... after a week and a half i'm not impressed. the status meter does not sync up correctly with actual battery charge. and i'm getting less actual usage time anyway (like 1 hour less screen time). idle time is about the same (although hard to judge) but doesn't help me when usage time is less and you can't really trust the status meter of how much battery life i left.

i have switched back to the stock battery as of today.

we have a thread on xda about this, another user started his test yesterday with even worse results but will report back after a few charging cycles.

Being a guinea pig certainly has its ups and downs.
