    Thought I'd throw in what I found regarding batteries... I use the thing a lot, and it seems running WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth will give you 1/2 a days usage (your mileage will vary).

    Searching bb00100 (the battery part number) gets almost nothing - but there was a reference to that battery being used in the Eris.

    Looks the same - same voltage - we'll see when I get it... Ebay droid eris battery.

    You can get 2 extra batteries, and an external charger specific to the battery - so you can charge one while you run your phone...

    Cost is around $15 delivered. Downside is it's gonna come from China - so you get to wait a couple weeks. Kinda a must have add-on.... There are several vendors selling them...

    You gotta be careful with cellphone batteries from China, you usually get what you pay for there. I lost a Moto Razr using a cheap battery from China, it overheated and fried my phone.

    Got the batteries and charger this weekend - works perfectly - I now have two backup batteries and a very nice charger - works perfectly and recommended.

    Yes - same battery. This opens up the accessory side.

    I see no difference operationally with the new battery compared with the HTC stock battery.

    For me it's a must - as I run through battery quickly (WiFi, Bluetooth etc).

    For long flights it'll also be nice :) Three batteries - woo-hoo!

    Just wanted to say that I have the same setup, 2 extra battery and an external battery charger, and I rotate through the 3 batteries. It's nice never having to plug my phone.

    However, before people do this, realize that you're going to have to replace your back cover every 6 months or so (you can get a new one for like $20 on ebay). The cover isn't really designed to be removed on a daily basis, and the little plastic tabs that hold the cover on will break over time.
