Or root your phone and get a battery saving rom like Baked Snack.
Though people don't complain about battery life much on these forums.
The Palm Pre's battery was like 2x worse, literally... lasted me 6-9 hours with decent service.

Gotta agree with Juice.. I bought the Chinese batteries and I have been happy ever since.. I'm one of those who posts %'s and hours and minutes etc. but the bottom line is this, you gotta do whatever you gotta do to keep the phone with juice whether it is the 3500 or 3 1500's I am now never worried about power like I used to be, I had Pandora playing on my phone today through my car for 2 1/2 hours. I didn't care at all about losing power. I knew I had another battery in my pocket ready to go..

IDK... I am getting a replacement phone cause they said something was wrong with mine the battery was worse than they have ever seen. But if the replacement is the same way or worse i have more options thanks for your posts guys i am going to look into batteries.. But i might also switch phones and go back to my beloved Blackberry.

I have the Seidio 3500...the pictures make it a lot uglier than it actually looks. But the Op is right... I no longer even worry about my battery. Recently I took a 6 hour road trip and used sprint navigation and pandora the whole time, and after six hours I still had about 75% left. The larger capacity battery just unleashes the EVO.

Don't mean to offend but the Evo looks like herpes with that extended battery cover. I saw one in person yesterday and I almost threw up. As soon as I saw it I looked up to the sky hoping to see the Batman sky light. I'll stick with my 2 chinese batteries and wall charger... May be rooting too soon

Not too sure what the fuss is about battery life....before froyo I was getting at the max 16 hours of moderate use now I'm getting close to a fulls day worth of moderate use. Light use could prolly get around 30 - 40. I use too monitor my battery life and use task killers....and now I dont. The more paranoid you are the less you actually get to enjoy your phone. All I did was follow the tips and my phone has been fine

The 3500 is a great alternative. I also bought the Chinese batteries on ebay. I keep one in my car,and I leave one at home. Between all the above mentioned batteries, the stock battery and my car charger, I think I'm in good shape as far as powering the EVO. Most of the time I use the 3500 extended battery, so I don't even have to worry about usage. The phone is big already, and I don't feel the added thickness is a big deal. When I see most other phones, they look almost toy like in there size compared to the EVO. Remember, size matters!!!!!!

well i use my device as everything!
I use my EVO for EVERYTHING! So I use battery power everyone who says one battery is fine might as well go get a Motorola Brick cause u obviously just txted and chat once or twice a day and the cover is NOT ugly! Must be a bunch of 8 year olds saying that in the comments !
