    I'm killing some time in class by surfing for stuff for my phone, and I came across the Seido website. I have friends who have used their products before and I know they are quality. But has anyone tried the 1600 mAh extended battery? I know the battery that comes with the phone is a 1500 mAh battery, so I am not sure how much more battery life would come from this.

    I know there is a 3000 mAh battery, but in my opinion that kills the form factor of the phone too much for me to warrant even considering it as an option.

    For me, I don't think the 1600 battery is worth replacing your stock battery with straight up. However, if you're planning on getting a second battery, or if your current battery gets shot, I see no reason to not get the 1600 battery instead. It's a much better option than those cheap batteries you can find on ebay which will probably hurt your phone.

    Disclaimer: I do not own this particular battery and this is based on my knowledge of batteries and Seidio's reputation.

    Thank you. I was also thinking that an additional 100 mAh might not be worth it but I had no idea since I don't know anything about battery tech.

    Sidebar: Are you the one who has the Seido case for the Vibrant? By chance was it this one? seidioonline.com If so, is this a hard case like the Barely There case? And do you have any pictures comparing the thickness of the two cases?

    Yeah, the extra 100mAh won't give you much more battery life, maybe an hour. Then again, if that hour makes or breaks your business day, it may be worth it after all.

    As far as the Innocase from them, I've used Seidio for all my cases and extended batteries, and will have their case arriving tomorrow. I'll put up a review shortly after including pics and a video.

    Thanks a lot HowTechnical. I have a Casemate Barely There case right now and I love it because of how thin it is. Which is why I'm interested in a comparison of them. I'll look forward to your review.

    Just letting you all know that I got my Innocase combo yesterday, it's really awesome. I already had high expectations from something by Seidio, but this is absolutely perfect. I'll be writing up a (and making a video) review in a day or two after I've used it a couple of days, but I can honestly say that this is the perfect case. It looks great, feels like butter, and doesn't add hardly any bulk.

    Here's a teaser image of what will be in the review. If you're thinking about getting a case for your Vibrant, I couldn't imagine anything better than this. It's nothing like how huge some other one's by different companies feel in your hand, and adds great drop protection.
