    "Given that I am in the process of switching from my Sprint HTC Hero over to a Verizon HTC DROID Eris I have been paying more attention lately to accessories for the Eris, one of which was extended batteries.
    Personally I am not really sure that I need one, but at the same time, a little extra juice is always a welcomed option for a smartphone

    Thanks for the heads up. Is the increase in battery power porportional (sp) to the battery that comes with the phone?

    Very nice see those photos.. thanks for posting that.

    As for me, I guess I'm too vain about the slim, nice looks of my Eris to get that bigger battery for more charged time. :eek:

    The 1750mah job might be worth it, though, if it turns out the day's battery life with it is substantial (meaning worth the price).

    I can't believe it but I'm actually making it on my stock battery each day. I hook it to my car charger while driving too and from work and that seems to give plenty of charge for me to make it from 6AM to 9 or 10PM. I use the phone fairly moderately so it gets usage throughout the day with no silly stuff like turning off data or airplane mode.

    I get the whole day on a charge, too. About the same as I did on my Samsung Instinct.

    It'd still be nice to have a phone that went a couple of days without needing to be plugged in. Not a huge deal, but it'd be nice.

    ive had the 1750 for a while now..my phone was free with my upgrade so spending the $50.00 was easy for me..this battery is not a magical fix where i went from 12 hours of charge to 3 days but it did help!! i dont now watch my battery level all day long now. i use my phone now when i want and just charge it at night with plenty of charge left when i charge it

    Maybe you use your Eris more than I do, but what you say there is true of me and the Eris now, but was not true for the first couple of days, perhaps the 4th day I noticed at the end of the day that I'd just been using the device and not checking the battery meter.

    Those first couple of days had me charging it in the middle of the day, maybe needlessly now that I think of it.

    frisco...im going to start a new post tonight after work..im doing a study on HTC Droid-Eris Forum...im using my 1750 one day and the 1300 the next to try and get a comparison...its not scientific but it should give people an idea on the two batteries...hopefully this will help...

    Very cool. That data will help people decide whether they need to spend the money on the 1750.

    I know you'll use and charge the two batteries as close to exactly the same as you can.

    I bought the 1750 battery (and I bought the charger that Seidio sells that lets you charge a battery directly - see here) and I really like having the extra capacity - I get through the day (which starts at 4:45 am off the charger and ends at 10:30 pm to 11:00 pm) with at least 35%-40% charge left. And, just in case I am going to be someplace where I use my phone more than normal, and tax the battery, I still have the stock battery ready to replace the 1750.

    How does that 35% - 40% compare to how the stock battery did for you?

    The stock battery would be below 15%, sometimes as low as 5%. I received the warning that my battery was nearly out of power a few times.

    Great. Plus I'll bet the usability of the new battery will go up with time, as you discharge and recharge it; these batteries seem to do that, at least my stock battery did.

    Guess I might as well say it now.. (lol).. I clicked the link up there and bought the 1750, even though I get fine one-day use out of my stock battery, I'm thinking the 1750 will pan out to two days if I condition it properly.

    It fits just fine.

    At 10:15 pm, it's at 52% battery. I used it a bit more often today than usual.

    I have the 1750 battery. Did the pre-order. I unplugged today at 5 am. It's almost 11 pm here and I'm at 62%. Normally, with the stock battery I'd be on the charger.

    The back cover fits fine

    Yes. As I said, it fits just fine.

    There is no comparison needed. The 1750 will give you 35-40% more than the stock battery. If you actually use your phone as it was intended to be used instead of turning off half the stuff, this battery will serve you well.

    My phone usage is the same for me every work day. I unplug at the same time everyday. My usage for calls, texts, emails and the web is almost identical day to day.

    With the stock battery by the time I arrived home I'd be approximately 30-35%. That's about 14 hours off the charger. With the new battery, I am at or above 65%. It's gotten better too.

    I too have the 1750 battery and so far it has held up quite nicely. I charged it the 8 hours that the package suggests, then ran it all day trying to wear it down when I got home from work. To my delight, it was harder than I thought to drain it to 0%. I was running all sorts of apps, had bluetooth, wifi, and gps on while browsing the net and it just keep going! I think I'm going to like this battery as a replacement for the stock one. Just my 2 cents. :)

    I just can not justify $50 for just an hour or two more. If time is money, then this isn't worth it. If the 3500mAh was $50, I'd think about it, but not right now.

    It is of course not "just an hour or two more." Unless you stop using your Eris after using the new battery only once.

    Multiply that "just an hour or two more" by the course of only one year; it's not rocket science, for fifty bux you'll be benefiting by hundreds of hours of device usage above and beyond the usage provided by the smaller battery.

    I was going to say the same. I'll have this phone for 20 months at least. This gives me a full day with a phone without having to manage having to plug it in at some point during the day. Call it an hour a day? That's 600 hours. $50 is worth it to me.
