High Capacity Battery for Charge
With the biggest complaint about the Charge (and other Smartphones) being battery life, I ordered and received the new Samsung extended life battery. Of course the guy entering the order at Verizon entered the wrong extended battery back, so I have to wait another couple of days before using it, but at least it's charged and waiting.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has gotten this battery and what their experience has been. Other than battery life, I love the phone and prefer it to the 3 IPhones I've had previously.

I'm sure the new cases will follow just as the high capacity battery followed the stock battery. If you're not comfortable with carrying the phone 'naked' for awhile, then the high capacity battery may not be for you at this point.
To me it's fine since I never carry anything in the pocket I use for my phones. My phones stay pristine that way.

- Stocked out! Whoo!!!
And you're going into medicine because? I don't want to leave the hospital with your phone in me. I kid.
On topic - I'm curious what it looks like. I probably won't need it but I at least want to see it. More interested in the bigger batteries that fit the original case.

Hey all i also just bought the extended 2600 mah battery with back sold separately, and it came in the mail today, I'm not sure how much i will use it considering i prefer to have a case on my phone, and i already bought the dock with extra battery,but it helps to have a 22 % corporate discount so it wasn't too bad, especially for those times when you need maximum battery life, ill post some pics of what it looks like tonight, ill report back later with results when i can fully test it.
Still haven't got to testing the battery, but here are some pictures, One thing i cant wrap my head around is how 2 standard batteries adds up to 3200 Mah but are Slimmer then one 2600 ? i thought this with the size of the incredible 2150 Mah vs standard 1300 Mah, or even a 1500 Mah, that as MAh is increased i feel the batteries Inflate the size to Mah ratio, but i don't know anything about it, just my opinion, judge the pictures for yourself, and i apologize for the quality, they where taken from my old incredible.
To ken MY 2600 Mah is Samsung OEM

I felt the weight with the extended battery sans the cover and it wasn't too bad. But since I don't have the back yet, I was curious to see dabomb420's pix (thanks dabomb!) and it does look kinda weird. I'm a little disappointed it looks so damn fat. Oh well, the back is coming over the next day or two and I'll give it a shot.
In the meantime I got the desk charger with the extra spare battery and I can use that too. When I'm on a trip, the fatso battery might work nicely.

I really wish it were feasible to use the device however we intend to and still get an entire day, minimum.... that is, from 6am to 11pm, with room to spare. I can get that much when on 3g, but I suspect that my use is less than a lot of people.
We really should be desiring more in this regard, as a person shouldn't have to tether themselves to a wall outlet 2-3 times daily... IMO

I guess I am lucky in one regard, the great devs over there came up with a way to circumvent the non-OEM battery crap that sammy put in and I managed to get 2 batteries and a charger for $9 on ebay
I have a question for you LTE people. Do you think that the LTE will chew up and extra battery life a dual core would give or is LTE along the same lines of 3G?
