    The battery worked great for about 3 mos (with the exception of fooling the battery monitor which never would calibrate). Recently it started causing a reboot loop whenever I try to charge it. It won't charge and the unit is unusable with it. The OEM battery still works fine, so it isn't a problem with the droid.

    Any solutions?

    Contact Seido. Should be a warranty, right?

    Mine lasted fine but it did fool the battery meter which gave battery low readings when there was lots left.

    Could be a meter issue. Try turning phone off and see if you get a good reading.

    I don't know if you were using the Seidio Cradle whne charging your extended battery, but I was experiencing something similiar. I was using the Seidio Cradle and sometimes my battery would not charge. I purchased a seperate wall charger from Ebay and when I am not using the battery it is charging in the wall and that has helped. I just use my extended battery for long trips and whne i travel. Other than that i switched back to my stock battery becasue of the better feel and quality battery metere readings.

    yes i do use the Seidio Cradle and when put my phone in to charge it shows its charging. but when i get up the next day it shows low battery somtimes.
    i have a hard time getting it in the cradle somtimes. i will try your way a few days and see if it helps. maybe its the cradle and not the battery!
