I just got a 3500MA battery from Ebay for mine. Used it heavily all day and still have 50% left. Makes the phone a little thicker and comes with another back cover, which makes it about as thick as an Iphone with the protective cover on it.

Default New Battery

I've been using the 3500ma for over a week now and I can go 2 days without charging the battery and this is leaving it on the entire time, day and night. Now I love this phone!

I am on PowerWashed Gingerbread rom. I experienced very short battery life for a while but then installed and learned how to use JuiceDefender. Works great. I also installed and use the Battery Calibration App. I can leave my data turned off but set JuiceDefender to turn it on periodically to check email, sync with weather apps, etc. I also had WidgetLocker set to easywake mode and found out that the screen was turning on while in the leather belt case due to vibration or pressure on the volume rocker. I am now getting about triple the battery life I had been getting. For instance, right now Battery status is at 72% after 7 1/2 hours since unplugging from the charger.
Pretty darned good I would say.

Default i am happy with my battery life

mine goes in cycles. with dark background, mobile data off(it does help, i don't care what the verizon store people say), and my brightness turned all the way down i can go two days without charging. some days the life seem to get sucked out the phone very quickly. those days are few and far between. i don't trust the battery status indicator either. i have run my phone a long time with 20% battery left.

now, if i am in a weak signal area or a completely dead area my phone will go from a full charge to completely dead in 3 hours that is the only thing I can gripe about with verizon. i thought this problem was limited to android smart phones but my dad's casio ravine flip phone does the same thing. i am new to verizon. this sort of thing never happened with my old provider. my nokia express music would stay charged with zero signal and moderate game playing for days on camping trips.

I purchased an extended Battery and rear cover on Ebay and battery life now is now unbelievable. I can go 2 days easily and I use my phone a lot both talking and texting. Well worth the change and the size is not all that much larger.

Which one did you get? The one you can get straight from Verizon? I use that one too, and while I easily get through a full day almost always, never do I get two days!! What is your usage pattern like, and what ROM (or stock?)
