Default Battery life and extended battery question.

First i want to ask a question about the original battery that comes with the phone. So the first week or so i had this phone the battery life seemed decent, however over the last couple days my phone has been dying VERY fast, after charging 100%, not even using the phone at all, and with the mobile network disabled, over just 1 hour the phone died anywhere from 15-20% in battery left. That is way to much especially with 3/4g off and juice defender running. I have installed a bunch of games and apps since i got the phone so would that cause the battery to die that fast even if they cant access the network since the network is off?

Secondly, i was looking at the extended batteries and was wondering and guess the answer is no?. But I will not be able to use my current cover that i have on my phone(body glove) am i correct?

I have the Seidio battery and had to cut my TPU case to be able to use it with the larger back plate. So now its mostly just a piece going around the sides of the phone for better grip, it works fine, but just isn't very pretty when looking at it from the bottom. Most likely yours wont work either.

Sounds like you haver a runaway app. Check in settings to see what apps have been running.

And ditch juice Defender. Apps like that and task killers are completely unnecessary and just kill even more battery. Android manages itself more efficiently without them.
