    check out: Innocell 2600mAh Extended Life Battery

    at $65 its a bit pricey but it certainly adds a lotta juice to your droid! Seido also seems to be working on a slim extended battery but has not released it yet for ordering.

    I'm interested in the standard sized extended-life battery they are working on for the Droid...I had one of their batteries in my Blackberry, and it was great.

    Hmm, I haven't gotten the battery below 20% even with heavy usage.

    Although if they get one the same size as the built in one then I may get it.

    Here's a great post on things to disable to extend battery life...

    "I know many folks out there love these features and won't give it up for good battery life but I can tell you that if you turn background sync off and disable GMail push you battery life will skyrocket. During the course of a "normal" day I use about 70% of the battery life with push and sync enabled. When it's off I use about 10 - 15% in that same time period. For me it's well worth it. Just thought I'd give my .02 on this seemingly hot topic." -- DroidIs4Me

    Awesome battery life now that I turned GMail Push and background sync off

    My question is this. If you have two batteries do you have to charge one IN the phone then take it out or is there a way you can charge one w/o it being in the phone. I'd like to have some type of charging dock to keep both charging at the same time (one in phone and one in dock)

    There is an external battery charger offered on Verizon's site.

    i'll give this a try, and see how it works, since i dont need to see email instantly for work or anything..

    as long as sync is off, is the gmail push off automatically ?

    I'm waiting til they release the slim battery as well, to see just how much extra juice it provides. I used the big one with the custom battery cover on my BB Curve and loved it but I would like to see pics of what the Droid looks like with the bigger battery and custom door.

    I don't want to have to worry about disabling things to get better battery life. I bought this phone so I can stay fully connected and use it to it's full capabilities.

    I don't worry too much about battery life. I have the car charger, and carry my usb cable. If i get low at work, I just plug it into my laptop, and it's always plugged in when it's in my car dock.

    its got me thinking...

    with the sycn off ~ yes it will save battery just because it isnt constantly searching for data.. but also, if you arent getting email notifications, then you arent checking emails, following links, downloading files, reading a thread you are subscribed to which makes you want to check out a new app, etc...

    therefore you are saving battery life simply because you are using the phone less throughout the day...

    jsut something to think about...
