Sprint's 2600mah Extended Battery Review (Video)
Quality is a bit rubbish, but I did a review on the battery, and to show the bulkness it added. Enjoy guys!
Put the quality in 480p for best results.
Price is $59.99 without Premier discount, and $54.99 after 25% discount when you buy two accessories.

Not to mention you can call up Sprint or use the web chat and complain that you dont see why you should have to spend another 54.99 on a battery to get a full days use out of your phone, and maybe be lucky to get it free ( I only got a $20.00 credit to my account but thats better then nothing)
Its working for quite a few people over on XDA
And btw, I love this battery! Sure it adds some extra bulk but more power PLUS having the camera lens protected without a case is good for me

Under normal use I should get 1.5+ days from the standard battery. I have occasionally eaten through the battery in less than a day but that's usually due to leaving 4G on in a bad 4G area. I don't leave GPS or wifi on and only turn 4G on when I know I'll be in a decent 4G area and I want to tether or do app downloads etc. 4G in a bad 4G area and GPS are the big eaters for my Evo battery...
Now if only they'd designed the phone to hold a 2500mAHr battery without the bulge. With a phone the size (l x w) of the Evo I can't see how that wasn't possible. Of course, having the kick-stand eats up valuable space that could be used for a larger battery.

I agree. The bulk on the 2600mAh and 3500mAh is not horribly bulky. I highly recommend it for folks who are power users that don't mind a bit the rump on their Evo.Price is $59.99 without Premier discount, and $54.99 after 25% discount when you buy two accessories.

This 2d 4hr use, was a constant use of just about everything I had that I use on a daily basis. Lot's of internet stuff, Facebook, Twitter, SMS, Calls, GPS that I use constantly for my job. Not much idle time during this test period, except for about 4-5hrs of sleep during those two days. Which even then I still had everything on and syncing every hour.
So that's all I will add.. I'm not going to argue with any users over this matter. I made a review about this battery because I could not seem to find one on the Sprint Extended Battery. I thought users would benefit from this, if they were in the market for another battery with more juice.
Gekko I have seen what your battery tips are, and that meant turning just about everything off. My tests concluded with same use, the stock battery maybe lasted 10-12hrs doing the same things.

Apologies splmonster. I misread that part of the conversation.
BTW, If you see my other threads and part of my post in your thread, I am now using the Seidio3500 mAh battery. With this battery after a couple of full charges, moderate to heavy use, I can now easily get about a day and 1/2.
After all this much juice, I ain't going back to the stock battery. I've tweaked the syncs and all other doo-dahs and never had it last as now.
