    Anyone using the 1740mah battery with their Incredible 2?

    How has it been?

    I've been using it and it has been fine. Haven't noticed a huge difference in battery life, but it may not be fully broken in yet. It has to be better than the original though...

    I have mime from origional Inc, filed off tabs on corners, works great. Get about 20% better battery life. You notice it towars end of day.

    I had the 1750mAh Seidio battery in my Inc 2 for a few days, but started getting some random reboots. While it was in, I noticed a little improvement in battery life, but I hadn't used the phone a lot since I switched to it. I have no idea if the random reboots are actually from the battery though, but I took it out and put the original battery in just to see. It seems like no one can quite figure out why they're getting random reboots.

    I've noticed that as well, namely, that the battery life % seems to go down quickly during the beginning of the day, and then seems to hold out much longer at the end of the day.

    Any clue why that is? I wish there was a way to calibrate it so you get an accurate read on battery % remaining throughout the day...

    I ordered one to try. Hopefully it nets about 10 - 20 % battery which should be fine for my needs. I didn't want to end up with monster phone which is why I decided to get the seidio.

    Running it down to 0 then fully charging, repeat a couple times will usually help.

    I know there is a calibration tool in the market but i don't know if it's only for rooted phones.

    I love using battery left widget from market. It is the best battery app I've used.
    And while I haven't had a seidio battery I love their cases. I think they make good products
