    Hey,

    I saw that the HTC Incredible is rumored to have a 1300mAh battery, would the 1600mAh battery that is available from 3rd parties for the Nexus One be of the same form factor that it would be usable with this phone to get some extra battery life (assuming we can get the back cover off).

    The Nexus One battery looks more square and the Incredible battery looks more rectangle... I don't know...

    I read it was 1300mAh (from the listed specs above in this forum).

    I've read reviews that the 3rd party ones get less or no more battery life. They probably are overrated.

    People who are writing those reviews haven't been charging the battery for a week. You won't hit peak performance for a little bit after you install it as it has to maximize its capacity so I put those reviews off to user error as I had a similar situation and 200mAh was noticeable after the battery was ready to go.

    I hope they use the same battery...

    No they said they had it for over a month and followed the directions that came with it. Depending on how they measure it they could fudge the numbers to make it seem the battery is better than it really is, or the batteries might not be made as well for a daily use and charge application like phones.

    Im sure another phones battery will work with the incredible such as the imagio battery working in the eris. Not sure though guess we will find out once it is released.

    stated from the manual, the talk time and standby time is way less than nexus one and the droid. definitly consider getting a bigger battery.

    Will the Seidio 1750 battery that I have for my Droid Eris fit in the Incredible if I were to get the Incredible?

    I'm really hoping it will, as I have 2 1500 batteries for my Eris, it would be fantastic if they were compatable

    Launch kit says they are coming out with a 2150mAh battery shortly after launch with a replacement back cover. I wouldn't bet on batteries from other devices being compatible

    How do you go about charging the spare battery while the other is in the Eris?

    I purchused a combo of 2 1500mah batteries and a charger the charger has a spot to put one battery and then a USB port to plug the phone into. I haven't used the USB portion as I just use my normal charger (actually my curve charger) to charge my phone but works really well. 90% of the time my battery still has 20-40% left on my charge by the end of the day but it's nice to have 2 fully charged spares just in case. Have come in hand twice.. Plus I hate having my phone plugged in while I'm driving (weird I know) I usually run music so I don't like two wires pluged into my phone makes it difficult to handle. So now I am a little wreckless with my usage knowing I don't have to worry about charging as I have spares. I now never turn 3g or gps off

    ohh and the 2 batteries with chager were $15 shipped on ebay

    Guess now they're $14

    Many people, including me, probably wont want to put a larger back cover on. I'm really hoping they release a better spec battery that still fits with the stock back cover quickly. Like Seido has the 1600 ones that still fit with the stock N1 cover. Hopefully they release the same or even better for the Incredible, and quickly.

    Is there a way to send suggestions like that to Seido, or do you gotta just wait?

    Might want to check the article at batteryboss.org i know i won't be buying any more seidio batteries from this point forward. They are overpriced and under perform even the stock batteries included with the phone.

    This is what im waiting for, and why i'm not ordering a case yet! It will be nice to have the same style back, hopefully it doesn't add a bunch of thickness.

    I disagree. The people who test those batteries aren't using broken in batteries. I had a seido extended battery in my blackberry and it was a noticeable difference.

    Do you have something to substantiate that? You have said it in at least two different threads now.

    I also noticed that you posted that your Inc was just shipped... and you are expecting it mid-week.

    Not trying to be negative, but there is far too much unsubstantiated info being passed on these boards...

    :D if true.

    About my 1750mah Seido ext battery experience....it is much longer lasting (~30%) than my oem eris battery...it was well worth $50.
