    Do you have an Incredible?
    Do you have a 3500 Battery?
    Do you eat food?
    Do you live/work in NYC?

    If you answered yes to all 4 of those, let me buy you lunch!

    I really want to hold/feel/try a phone with the 3500 on there but i dont want to buy one until i do. Im afraid i wont like it, but im definitely craving the extra battery life so im interested in "test driving" it lol

    Hopefully this post doesn't seem as creepy to yall readers, as it does to me now after reading it back to myself ROFL!!

    Seriously tho .. im not a weirdo im a business man wearing a suit every day to my office on Wall St. I swear i wont chop you up lol

    You can even pick the place! (within reason please, im not rich haha)

    EDIT, crap i hope this doesnt break some forum rule. If it does, im sorry just lock/delete it.

    Dude save your self the cost of lunch and buy one of the cheap 3500 of the web that go for 10 bucks. You can use it for a while before it starts to go bad. It's worth the 10 bucks.... Then if you like it, go buy one the better ones that will keep a full charge for longer than a few months

    Yea, this. For what you would spend on someone's lunch, you can get a cheap one off EBay.

    Cheap - yes. Good - probably not.

    But if all you want to do is hold it in your hand and play around for 30 minutes, it will cost you the same to order a cheap one off EBay than to pay for someone's lunch. And the bonus is you don't have to worry about this guy meeting up just to rob you, as you now annouced to the world that you work on WallStreet which in most people's minds = rich.

    And hey, you might actually get lucky and the battery you order will last you at least a couple of months!

    I got two 3500ma batteries with a charger off ebay for $21. So far I'm getting really good results, even though odds aren't in my favor that they would last based on feedback. I can get 48 hours up time with around 10 hours of wake time with 3g or wifi on the entire time if I use it for mostly email, text, and a couple hours of phone calls (not a lot of web browsing or really cpu intensive apps).

    If nothing else, if it works for a few weeks, you can at least get a feel for how a name-brand battery would work for about $10.

    I am on Long Island and just got my Seidio 3500 in the mail. I figure the actual battery is probably closer to 3000 but that is still a nice increase from the 2150 extended battery.

    Also the back cover if big but it looks nice...at least a lot nicer than the design of the 2150 back cover which I had to try and cover up some with a dremeled out silicone case.

    Going to charge overnight tonight and see how things work out.

    Ahh screw it ill just buy the damn Seido lol

    2 points pushed me over ...

    1. Tarabetha reminding me that the cost of a lunch in NYC is probably equal to the cost of the battery lol

    2. I read reviews on Amazon and people refer to the battery power not in hours, or even days anymore ... they use DATES!! "I unplugged on July 26th and didnt plug back in until July 31" WTF???? That blows my mind

    Must have it.

    It actually wasnt REALLY the size that scares me. Its the fact that i LOVE my innocase-active and i know there is nothing comprable for the extended. Damnit

    screw it, im sold. thanks all

    I've got a cheap chinese knock-off 2150 ("2600") and it is perfect. It works as well as a Seido, but it probably won't last as long. For the price though, I can get 4-6 of these vs 1 Seido...

    Don't get your hopes toooooo high. I've got the Seidio 3500 and if you use it heavily like I do, you will get about 2 days out of it(although longer life is possible if you go light-medium). Got mine on 6/24/10 and it still holds 2 day charge(wear and tear on battery is reduced when the # of charge cycles is cut in half:D). Charge with the phone off for maximum life.
    Here is the post I put up on day 1:
    Cool things to do with this battery are watch entire movies and sling(slingbox) entire baseball games with battery to spare. Also laugh at all the one star comments about battery killing apps on the app market. This phone gets sooooo much more useful when you don't have to worry about battery life. I'm in San Diego but you can send me a gift certificate.

    mmmmm Ben Bensons. What a great place. My gf's family from ireland were over for a week in NYC and we wanted to take them to one of the best restaurants in NYC (and one of the worse). $600 for a party of four. They were amazed at the size of the steaks (europeans don't eat beef in the same fashion or quantity we do).

    Capital Grill is another great steak place if you are in Philly too.
