    Anyone using an extended life battery for their Evo's and happy with them?

    I was thinking of purchasing one and wanted to check in with the gang.

    Thanks.

    I have the stock battery personally. Just posted about this over in the battery forum but, im just over 70 hrs since unplugged with 30% battery left under light/moderate use compared to most here. 4-5 calls a day out and 4-5 in or so, 10-20+ txts and an hour so of my daughter surfing/streaming you tube, not rooted, manually using ATK, launcher pro and other lil stuff, nothing special! Except when I charge it, I pull it off when its green, use it for a minute, and plug it back in, usually charges another 5-10 min 2-3 times. Hope this helps!

    Don't forget to post Display Up Time, because I guarantee you it's not over 4 hours.

    67 hours, in before = its not 70 hrs (Math was auctually my best subject! lol)

    Spent the last 20+ min with 3 old cameras dead batteries trying to take a pic >> Phones not rooted, I had updated shoot me so now it wont work. Can take pics from DDM but when I plug it in, it resets the time. If anyone can suggest another way to take more pics ill post uptime/whatnot.

    Also Robo, I did mention it was light/moderate use compared to what some people here use theres for. Theres been 8+ hrs a night of a sleep it sits, and the 6-10 hrs a day im at work, its with me but usually idle, I work in attics so yea. It was deff on more than 4 hrs, I promise.

    I said in my first post, exactly how much it was used, belive it or not wasnt tryin to start an argument, just help someone try a few things out before buying another battery. Cheers

    More pics if someone can give me some ideas!

    yeh uptime is what im looking for, because i know he didnt talk on the phone for 70 hours. He posted a pic but all i see is the standby time

    But my stock phone would not last 70 hours even on standby, unless i cut EVERYTHING off. but i keep the 3G or 4g on all the time.

    I bought the extended battery and cover from ebay that's $15 I will report once it gets here. I considered the seidio one but 70 is a lot to pay for a battery

    i paid $53 free shipping
    i would jump out there and say sedios will probably hold more mah and last longer than the cheap $15 bucks or so batteries
    just my hunch of course

    You might have paid 53 but its 69.99 now. The seidio will probably be a better battery but for 15 bucks its worth a shot.

    Comprehension is hard. I said exactly how much it was used during this charge. Bout to roll 3 days even, 15% on battery atm. Daughter played on the net for about an hour watching chipmunk videos, I made prob another 6-7 calls since earlier and 10-15 txts both ways.

    I received my 3500 from Amazon Saturday. I played with the phone all day Sunday and was unable to kill the battery in 15 hours. Still had over 40%.
    To get a completely full charge you need to charge it a couple of times. It gets about 90% on the first charge. On mine the charge falls to about 80% in the first couple of hours, then it starts to stabilize and seems to run forever. Last night my phone went 20 hours with out charging. Still had over 40% after using GPS from and to work, games, internet, texting, and mail.

    Main reason I bought Seidio was because they had an extended case that would fit the battery and phone properly.
    Luckily I got it on pre order for $53. Worth it for me, I use my phone all the time, and I don't always have a charger available.

    I got my seidio 3500 last monday, and it's awesome. I was using my phone like normal (stock battery was usually ~30-40% by 10pm), and I just plugged it in after almost 88 hours. The last time it was plugged in was 3:30pm sunday! The last phone I had that could go more than a day on a charge was my old samsung dumb phone on t-mobile (circa 2002).

    Personally, the extra battery life is totally worth the battery bubble-butt :D
