    Just wondering if anyone has used the 1750 yet and how it was performing! Let us all know...

    My first instinct is to hold out for the OEM 2100 mAh one, but if it the seidio performs well it would be super nice to be able to maintain the phones slim profile..

    This is my second day so I expect improvement. Seidio says 5-6 charges to be fully optimized. I was off the charger today at 530 AM. Now amost 9 hours later I am at 50%. Been using the phone alot.

    Not worth the money imo. I have 2 of them, one in my wifes eris, and one in my incredible. I don't get much more talk time if any and neither does she.

    Do you get a new back cover with the battery?

    Give it a week and it will even improve more :)

    This is how long my 1750 SEIDO battery took to gain full power for lack of better descrip. (really how long it takes phone to calibrate to the battery? idk)

    I have not tested it on the Inc yet but it's quite an improvement on my Eris. I will test out the Inc and SEIDO next week after I've tested the stock red Inc battery.

    I got the battery when I had the Eris. Fits perfectly in the Incredible. The problem is I can't put the damn phone down so the battery is draining like crazy. I might need to take some medication...

    I bought it from Amazon today for $44.50 (includes $3.99 one day shipping with my Amazon Prime membership). It will arrive tomorrow. I can't wait! :D I'll have the OEM battery as much backup battery. One question though... is there like some standalone charger that kind of battery?

    Thank you sir. As I'm staring at my DI charging for the third time since noon yesterday when I got it, this seems like a must-buy.

    You won't regret buying it. It makes the Incredible exactly how it should have been from the factory. You will easily make it through a full 7am to midnight as long as your not watching a ton of videos and using the gps to take you every single place you need to go.

    Awesome! :) I can't wait for it to arrive and to test it out! I want to get a good few runs through the battery before I take the phone with me on a roadtrip from Indiana to California (going back home from college).

    I plan on getting a second battery, would like an extended, but one that does not require a new back. Today on my first charge I have been off the charger since 7:20 AM and now at 11:20 I am at 18% with moderate use.

    For some reason the estimated delivery date for the extended battery is May 20th, even though I have free 2 day shipping with Amazon prime. Must be out of stock. I hope it ships sooner.

    I just went ahead and ordered one. My battery keeps dying fast. I could live with having to charge it every night, but to have to charge it 2-3 times during the day.....come on.

    I just ordered one as well. I already bought a case, and if I were to wait and buy the OEM extended battery, I would have to buy a new case. That would be another $20-$30 on top of the rumored $60 price for that battery. Figure I'd just buy this $41 battery instead of paying a $80-$90 total for the OEM battery and new case.
