    .
    Ours comes with a 1500ma battery. Would that make much a difference?

    Probably not. The only reason I would buy this one is if I was looking to buy a second battery anyway. I wouldn't buy it as a replacement for my stock battery though, not really worth it.

    Agreed. Not to thread crap but you'd get better battery life from an undervolted kernel than a 1600mah battery with stock voltage. $50 for the extra 100mah is not good expense IMO

    Which is a completely fine choice. My only advice is people looking to improve battery will see a benefit to having an undervolted. So sure the 1600mah battery and an undervolted kernel is the best of world worlds

    Saps,

    I can see this as a viable option for those that have no desire to root, yet want as much time between charges as they can get. Your correct that an under volt routed fascinatewill likely equal or maybe best the extra one hundred milli amps, but if the added juice can nearly equal the under volt, I see out as a fine option for the non root crowd that wants to retain the stock battery cover as well as Verizon warranty.

    Note That the added power is 7%. What is the under volt? what is the original voltage compared to the under voltage? Is it more than 7%?

    Anyone who got this care to share some comments? I know it is not a big improvement but a little bit can help I guess. My phone must be odd as most UV kernels seem to run my battery down faster.

    Give them time to callibrate. Run the battery down to almost 0 with the kernel and charge it again. Do this a few times and you'll see an improvement. Worked for me :p
