    Battery life is horrible on this LG Optimus Slider! Love the phone though so I was thinking on buying a larger battery other than the 1500 mah going to 3000 mah. Has anyone done this and does it help?

    I considered it, but you also need a bigger back cover, and I didn't want that. Instead I bought a set with two extra regular batteries and a wall charger on eBay for only $9.99. I also use the free version of JuiceDefender on aggressive which helps.

    Here's a video about an extended battery. It shows the Optimus V, but the description mentions it's also available for the Slider.

    You must be a really heavy User. My wife gets nearly 2 days on her Slider.
