    I heard about users going with a different HTC battery but I don't know what one. I'd like to keep the phone stock looking just go up to a 1500 it 1750 mag battery if possible.
    Can someone link me a amazon link to a battery that is a direct drop in so I can order it tonight when I get home?

    Is greatly appreciate it, this stock battery isn't cutting it anymore lol, something bigger would be great, I'm just trying to make it thru the day and I'm struggling here...

    Man... it's been so long ago, I can't remember just what battery I purchased. I looked at the battery and it doesn't say diddly on it. It was a replacement battery for another android phone. Hmmmmmmm... I searched my ebay history and it was this: OEM ORIGINAL HTC BATTERY FOR SPRINT TOUCH PRO 2
    I seem to remember it was a 1500... and was darn cheap. You might try searching Ebay for one.
    It's black and not red but has served me well.

    Man, it's been so long since the issue of batteries has come up, I've almost forgot all the old babble. :D

    If you're going to go stock again, I'm pretty sure the TouchPro2 will fit and it's slightly more juice. Otherwise, I think most people went with the Seidio 1750. I seem to remember the price being way better than this, but at least it'll give you an idea about what I'm talking about:
    Amazon.com: Seidio Innocell 1750 mAh Battery for HTC Droid Eris/Droid Incredible: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Having said that, I never upped the battery. Most of the larger ones require a special battery compartment door which changes the shape of the phone so I passed.

    I went with the Seidio 1750mah recently. It's definitely an improvement, but not a huge one.
    Changing roms combined with changing battery, made a bigger difference.

    It sounds like you're pretty frustrated with your present battery. I'm just saying don't expect a big difference in battery life for any battery that doesn't make your phone thicker.

    Even with the 1750mah Seidio, I still charge mine at least once a day, and if I always leave it plugged in when using Pandora or something like that. I don't like to let it run down real low, because it's my only phone, and I don't even have a house phone. But I think it would probably last a full day of normal use if I tried it.

    The battery life on this phone makes me sick to my stomach.

    Same here. It helps but I still keep a charger handy just in case.

    I'm not worried about the incredible battery anymore, I sent it back to VZW today and ordered a totally different phone.

    It was nice while it lasted incredible owners, time to enter a different forum.

    I got the Seidio 1750 and got a bit of an increase. Then I got a PAIR of 1800's on HTCExpress.com (and a wall charger) for less than the price of the Seidio, and the 1800 gives me significantly longer juice than the Seidio. Go fig.
