    My battery might be toast so i have been looking around. I LOVE the Seidio 3500 (had it on my OG dInc) but i dont want to put another $60 into this phone

    This is essentially a loaner until something badass comes out (i.e. htc One X)

    Anyhow, wondering what are my options besides walking into VZW and getting stock battery. Do they sell an extended battery that fits in stock case?

    or any battery from a different phone work in here?

    I think the battery from a desire Z (t mobile G2) or an Evo 4G will fit in Dinc2... I'll check later and get back with you.

    I only read a couple articles and dont really have a clear picture. But i think i read there will be 2 versions
    1 will have the 4+1 core
    the other will have a dual core, but have LTE

    Id really like the 4+1 because ic an vouch for the INSANE battery life, as seen on my TF201 with that processor (standby basically uses nothing!)

    but either way, i need a phone and im waiting on the "transformer prime" of phones. I hope the One X is it!!

    EDIT, crazy steroid specs:

    By the way, the only ones that fit are the ones I mentioned earlier from the 2 other phones.

    I have the Mugen Power 1800mAh battery and I like it. It fits in the phone with the stock battery door, and lasts about 25% longer than the stock battery.

    Did you have to like peel off the sticker on the battery to "make" it fit?

    Or did it fit perfect with the sticker on?

    Fits as-is.

    I use the chichitek 1800 off Ebay and am very happy with it, though I did have to remove the sticker to get the perfect fit. I think it was like 35 bucks for two batteries and a charger.

    CHICHITEC 1900mAh Batteries not 1800 and Amazon, not Ebay.

    I bought the oem extended battery from Verizon and recently I was looking for extra batteries for my trip to Europe (use on plane)

    I found the whole kit (battery and cover) oem on Ebay for like 25.. I bought like 4 oem extended batteries for 7 bucks a piece and they last just as long as the one I bought at VZW.. So search on Ebay and look through ratings of the same product sold.

    Thanks for the info!
    That's what I will get when I need a new battery, I'll get it from Ebay so I can pay the easy way.

    Im not much of a shopper, ill just go with the one TAR posted from Amazon. TAR, how do i get the sticker off? I've never done it. Thanks!

    I have an update NOW! lol ... i spent $99 to get an insurance dInc2 so i didnt use up my upgrade, im saving it for something crazy like the One X ...

    No idea what carriers they will land on, I think I read ATT somewhere and i instantly closed the article out of frustration. I really need the One X on VZW!!!! COME ON!!!!!

    The sticker comes off like any other. Peeled :D

    A little rubbing alcohol needed to get the sticky off after the sticker.

    I just convinced myself that my battery is 7 months old and it's time for a new one.
    So, I just got the Mugen 1800mAh slim extended.

    Don't forget it may take a while to "break in" the battery and the stats. Speaking of which, you should probably wipe battery stats once it is fully charged before you start using it. Let it drain completely once and recharge fully before powering back on. Then after a couple use cycles, you will get a pretty good idea of the battery life.

    I hear you, TAR and you're 100% right! Trust me i know the routine haha!

    I just dont care a lot about this, and dont intend on keeping this device for more than a year at the very most. If the One X was hitting VZW id be on that, but now ill wait and see the next big thing.

    In the meantime my old battery was going from 100% - 30% twice daily!! Not cool. For $20 this will be better, I am sure.

    You've been great help, thanks!!

    How do you wipe battery stats?
    Is that something only for root users?
    I got my mugen 1800mAh on the way...
    Right now I am blinking at the end of everyday in the 15-18 hour frame... It used to be 22-to 24+.

    Jeez 15-18 is still pretty awesome!! On my original Incredible i got the Seidio 3500 extended ... as much as i use my phone, this thing would last 72 hours average. It was unreal!!

    Combine that battery with ICS and 4+1 core, and i would bet money on 150+ hours uptime. The processor management on ICS is amazing, and the 5th core on the tegra3 is just unreal in standby.

    Cannot effing wait!!
