    Which one will you pick? Cause as it stands I dont think Verizon will make cases for extended back covers.

    This thread basically applies to people who currently have cases and are seriously considering a bigger battery.

    And go naked? I just know once I take my case off I will probably drop the phone.

    Ill stick with my case and endure the pain. My case has already saved my phone multiple times already.
     
  5. I'd have to go with my case. It has definitely saved my phone from a few bumps and bruises, and I can get a full days worth of use out of it. I don't mind charging every night.

    I like my gradient case...

    The cost of paying more for a new battery and new case doesnt sit well with me.

    However, on the top right corner front side of my case, the black is peeling and is showing red from where i dropped it. And slowly starting to flake off..

    If it gets too bad I might have to upgrade because I dont want an all red plastic case..

    +1 for the 1750+whatever case you want.

    It's all the battery you should need unless you are planning on a safari.

    I already have the 1750 and yes it is a nicer bump up from the 1300 but it certainly doesn't fall into the "all the battery I need" category.

    First off regardless of what battery you have the first 10% is gone in 30 minutes.

    This. And I would recommend the seidio case, personally I think it's the best case out for the incredible.

    If you don't mind the phone being thicker...seidio says they will also make a 3500mah battery and will also make a case for that.

    Next time try turning the phone on. :p But really I dont buy that unless you are doing the trick where you shut the phone off and continue to charge or you have not used the phone at all.

    I unplugged it and actually did a crossword puzzle (shortyz).

    (I don't do any of the charger voodoo LOL)

    3:38 and 87% left. I have 15:15 out of 17:33 remaining (in case you want to do the math).

    Granted its Saturday night, so I haven't done much else (couple of texts, a little market surfing).

    I'm getting the 2150mAh with the new back as soon as it becomes available from Verzion. I may or may not get a screen protector. I baby this phone so much, that I'm not too worried. Unless I can find something that isn't sticky and doesn't look like crap, I will be a hard sell. The new back with the 2150 will look identical to the original, just large enough for the new battery. A little heft and a mm or two, would actually be better for me.

    I think by moding the old back and using the a case cover some thing can be worked out. So it fits and looks good.

    You obviously havent seen the picture of the new battery and back case in the accessories sub forum. A few mm or two is the biggest understatement of the year. That thing is gargantuan.

    That's not a bad idea actually, maybe cut or the center so the case still fits.

    For the 2150 or that 3000+ model?

    Nope, you're in the wrong here.

    One SECOND after unplugging my phone this morning I was at 98%, and after 30 minutes of non-use (in my pocket, screen off) I was at 92%. After an hour I'm at 90% and things get more reasonable from here, at least at rest.

    That first 10% of battery juice is just vapor. And btw I've wasted hours of my time trying the voodoo charge on / charge off / charge on BS too. Doesn't help except for that one charge.

    Oh wow I just went to the accesories board and saw pics of the new battery with the extended case..... :eek: That thing is ugly. Instead of making the entire back case bigger they just pushed the middle section out.

    Wow that looks terrible maybe I will pass...

    You should spend some time with Battery Left.

    It will show you much more accurate usage percentages than the stock sensor provides.
