    I am looking for a back up battery to take with me when i go on my long bicycle rides and hikes a few days a week i like using the bike app (B.icycle-GPS bike computer)or(MapMyRide)and also listening to my music while i ride so on a few hour loop i could just toss one in the bike pouch or possibly get what you have but then i would have to figure out how i can mount it on the handlebars being so thick.But as a permanent daily use when im out and about or at home there really is no need for it,now i have to make up my mind extra stock battery or the aftermarket 3800mah extended one for my bike and hiking times.

    I just picked up 2 myself...Can't pass it up for the price. 2 Extra EXTENDED LIFE batteries, AND a charger for less than $23. Should make for some long times between charges.

    Let's hope they last long in terms of lifetime. If they work decently, I'll pick up another set for when my wife gets her Warp later this year.

    I haven't, but I'm sure you could find something on Ebay...that'd be the first place I would check if you're looking for a stock battery/charger combo.

    Glad it's working out! It does take a long time to charge. For me sometimes I charge it when I go to bed, sometimes I don't! It's such a relief just knowing the phone is there to use absolutely whenever I need it.

    Just a reminder to users purchasing these. Charge them correctly and get the most out of your battery!! For the first charge I recommend wiping battery stats and powering the device down. Charge it while off until it says full, then wipe battery stats again, power down and rinse and repeat. Do this until it indicates it is full immediately after plugging it in. Then you should be gtg!!

    Thanks for this tip, I'll have to let Apollo know if he hasn't seen this by the time I talk to him.

    i like it the only thing i don't like is it muffles the sound of the speaker that's about it

    had to turn up the volume for the ringtone

    I order one after reading this. But I found one in California on ebay 2 batteries, back covers and one charger for 23 bucks with free shipping. So pumped because my phone is like an extension to my body. And I'm tired of bad battery life. I will definitely make it known if it's a must have for the warp. Supposed to receive it by the 17th. Will update!!

    Just ordered mine lastnight. Has anyone else had to move the copper sticker from the stock back to the extended back like Kroegs mentioned on page 1?

    Just a thought but they also have those copper stickers at radio Shack and other places. I think they call them reception boosters or something of the sort. Funny but I got one from a dollar tree b4 cuz it caught my eye. I wouldnt take from the stock back because you might use it again,!!!

    Yea I understand that, just curious if anyone else had to use that method because of poor signal as a result of the extended battery cover not having the copper

    Idk yet because I haven't received mine yet but it's there for a reason and I would plan on putting one on the aftermarket back regardless. What's the point of a long lasting battery with less than usual speed and service

    You can always replace it on the stock back if you ever need to. It will wrinkle a little but it's no biggie.

    Soo I just received my 2 3800mah batteries. They are charging to 100 percent and I will update in a few days my opinion of battery life changes and how I feel about its worth. Phone is bigger, back snaps easily in place and I'm not having reception problems without switching the copper stickers. I also think the new back feels comfortable so it's not an issue

    I got another week and a half to go probably before I receive my batteries. (china) And I ordered two of those gold sticker things you put under the battery for better service just in case. Not to sure if they really work or not but we'll see.

    Good man. I'm going to get copper stickers from radio Shack because they were on the factory case for a reason. Cool beans though
