    I wanted to get peoples opinions that might have bought stuff from ebay for the inc.

    I want to get the following accesories:
    seido innocaseII
    extended battery 1750 mAh
    desk charger

    all together I am talking 150$ if i get it all from seido but if i get something like

    13 Accessories Bundle for HTC Incredible

    I can get all of that plus a temp car dock and some extra crap for 45$

    I know the quality of that stuff is no where near the quality of the seido product but i still wanted to see what everyone thinks.

    Thanks!

    haha you get what you pay for...

    it depends how much you are willing to spend and how long you want the products to last. If you don't have much money and don't care then ebay. If you do care at all seidio. Although 150 is a lot for 3 accesories. Try shopping around and see if you can get them cheaper.

    It's a nice little bundle , if you don't mind swapping batteries don't get the 1750 battery . I have all 3 the 1300, 1500 and 1750 and whilethe 1750 is the best it's definetly not worth $40 the TP2 Batteries can be had for about $10 and will last longer then stock and almost as long as the 1750 .
    But the Silicon Case they are giving you in that bundle is no match the the Innocase that is a fantastic case , also those chargers that are in the bundle aren't always that great some will charge very very slow , they are all universal microUSB while they'll work they might not work well.
    I say buy the case and charger from Seidio and get a TP2 battery could probably get all for under $80

    How are you getting $150 for the stuff you are looking at? I'm only getting $110 (case $30, battery $50, charger $30), but maybe you are looking at different items. Also, you can use a coupon code at Seidio for 10% discount of your order over $50, which should save you a little money.

    For me, I don't want a plastic case that feels and performs like shit. The charger on ebay will be slow and probably won't last six months. And the battery won't have the capacity of the Seidio ones. Perhaps most importantly, to me at least, is the fact that Seidio will stand behind their products to make sure they perform to a high standard. I think with the ebay purchase, you'll realistically end up paying $45 for only a couple of items that you actually end up using.

    Either way, good luck and I hope you enjoy the new phone.

    EDIT: ChiTownJim has a good plan, and is basically what I did/am doing. I bought an Innocase from Seidio, and will be getting a multi-function charger as well in time. I bought three cheapo 1500 batteries and one HTC OEM battery for a total of $25. I know they aren't as good individually as a 1750 from Seidio, but I don't mind swapping, and I want some extra juice for a long trip ahead of me.

    Heres a tip, don't buy from seidio. Instead buy from amazon, they carry seidio accessories for alot less and with amazon prime you can get overnight shipping for $2.99. Also don't buy the seidio screen protector, go for the steinheil one instead, its much nicer and alot better quality. As for a car dock or car charger get them locally, that way you can use them the minute you walk out the door and return them if you don't like them.

    Yeah being the owner of a 1750 and buying my Mom one for her Incredible I'm jsut really not impressed enough. It's better then the 1500 but barely. I'm ordering the Seidio Case can't wait to get it. And I really have no need for an extra charger since I have a battery charger and 3 batteries lol

    Try Amazon seidio 1750 $41.00 free shipping, just do a search for all studio products. I like not having to carry two batteries with me.
