    Someone said there is a battery from another HTC device that fits in the Droid. It does not extend the battery life significantly, but every little bit would help, even if it was just 10% mote. Which other battery fits inside of the case?

    I believe its from hero. But I know sedio is working on one specifically for eris and it would be same size as original. :)

    Actually a post on another thread from a Verizon employee said the HTC Ozone was bigger with the 1500maH and fit in the Eris.

    Sweet! That's good news for me. I would like to avoid charging twice a day. I use my phone a lot because I commute on a train. So I watch a lot of movies and listen to music while surfing the web, etc.

    The 1750 is for the hero and it is out already. It is a little bigger than the stock battery. The top and bottom snap close but the sides do not. If you use a case you will never know the difference. Not sure what kind of life it gives, been watching it in another thread. The guy said it gave him an extra 30% power

    i wouldnt mind a nice 2600 with a extended back if sedio would make it not sure if i would jump on a 1750.

    I am not doubting you, but do we have some kind of confirmation that it's coming?

    I'll definately be keeping an eye out on this thread to see what folks think on bigger batteries.

    No, I'm not talking about the Hero battery. I'm talking about the ERIS battery that's not yet out.
    Like I said in another thread: Judging from the size of the other extended batteries for other phones, this one should be 1750mAh at least.

    I will call them tomorrow and see if I can get a better ETA on the 1750 Batteries. If it is something like two months out, I may buy an Imagio battery to get a little more juice in the meantime. 15% longer battery life would definitely make the phone a little better to manage.

    Not sure if the Hero and Eris batteries are exactly the same. I would assume so but as someone else stated they claim they're coming out with a 1500mAh battery for the Eris yet have a 1750 for the Hero.

    Well the Sprint Hero has a 1500mah battery standard, which is essentially the same battery the Imagio has. The Eris has a smaller 1300mah battery and the GSM Hero has a 1350mah battery(but you also have to remember GSM phones tend to be a small amount more efficient.

    HTC has a battery bank, which will charge your phone up to three times when there are no other means of charging. It's $69.95 at Android Central. I ordered one for my Droid Eris. I'm not sure if it will work with the Motorola Droid.

    What is a battery bank? Do you have a picture or link? Thanks!

    I googled Battery Bank and you hook up to the bank that looks like a small candy bar and recharge your phone. In essence its a big battery to juice up your phone.

    when this 'better battery' comes out, will i have to change the battery door to fit the size? if i have to change the door, won't that mean i can't use my gel cover for my phone nemore? (verizon sells them) -- they are already a tight perfect fit, and a bigger door would make it so difficult to use i'd imagine. now that would suck cuz these 'gel' covers are awesome.

    Innocell Extended Life Battery


    an extra battery w/ charging cradle :)

    how they could possible make a battery with that much juice and say "This model fits in your device's existing battery space and doesn't require a replacement door, which makes it a perfect replacement for your original battery. Capacity: 3500 mAh" is beyond me. but if they can do it lemme buy it!
