I've got the seidio 3500mah battery. The only times it's died where when I tried and tried to kill it. Running GPS status, wireless teather, etc. However, the other day, I unplugged it at 100% charged at 6AM, I watched a movie on my sd card that was an hour and a half long, three 20 minute episodes of south park on the sd card, surfed the net and streamed certain videos for about an hour. After 6 hours, I was at 70%. Everything was updating regularly, 2 hour intervals at most. Kept mobile networks always on. No wireless or bluetooth. Love the extended battery. I can actually go places with this phone now!

In the end, it really depends on how much you use your phone. However, it will blow your factory battery the **** away! Just charge it fully, use it normally, let it die and charge it again a couple of times.

Smile Fit of the Mugen 3200 battery cover?

I'm trying to decide between the Mugen 3200 and the Seidido 3500 extended battery...but I've read the Seidido battery cover doesn't stay on very well.

How's the fit and finish of teh Mugen 3200 battery cover?

Hello All,

I use the seidio 3500mah and although I do love it, I must admit I hate the way the back cover fits onto my phone. It is always slipping off. Every so often I will go to the stock battery because I get frustarted with the back cover but in the end I go back to my seidio as I prefer not having to worry about my battery dying. If seidio would make an extended battery case like they did for the Blackberry Tour, I would be a happy camper. Please let me know if the Mugen battery cover fits better. I would probably take the loss with the seidio battery and buy the mugen if it fits and stays put.. Thanks
