    Okay boys and girls. I know the phone came out today so there won't be much information/feedback on this, but let's see some battery stats.

    I can't get my TB until I get off of work :( but for those lucky ones who already have it, let's see what you think of the battery so far.

    You really can't get fair results for 3-4 days while Android "learns" your battery.

    True, but sharing the information is always nice. It's good to know if your battery life is on par with others. Of course many variables (widgets, syncing, etc.) come into play, but the information is good to have.

    If my battery dies in four hours on day one, I'd like to know if this was "normal" or not.

    Is it best to charge it right away, or let it use all the juice and then charge it for the first time? May be slightly off topic but it is battery related and I doubt I'm the only one wondering this.

    I've got a 2750 factory HTC battery coming with my phone tomorrow.
    I plan on installing it right away, activating and using the phone to run it down and then charge it fully (probably by night time) to see how long it takes to burn off a full charge and charge it fully.
    If I can get a day to day and a half out of a charge, I'll be happy...

    Can you take some pics that compare the stock battery/back door to the extended battery/backdoor?

    Thanks!

    Have to remember, it does a lot of background syncs and what not on first day... People are also playing on them a lot more to get all their accounts, widgets, and personal items in order before giving it a rest...

    lol...My Battery SUXXXXXXXXXXXX! However, it's the First day! Only one Full charge, and that bad boy only made it about 3 1/2 hours...O well, lets see how it fares after a week of charges...should get better!

    However, might be worth looking at the Seidio 1600mAh battery..hmmmm?
