I've been letting it run down to 14% before charging it, but only to gauge how much uptime I can actually get out of the battery with my average usage. Otherwise, I will eventually charge it every night... unless I can legitimately get 2 full days from 1 charge.
It doesn't matter either way as long as you don't completely drain the battery. That's when you strain the batteries most and potentially shorten their life.
I'm sure you can do the same to the case for the 3500 battery, but I don't have that battery. So, tough to say. If anyone with the battery wants me to try to mod a case for them, let me know. I'll need you to send me the battery door, though.
The mod for the 2150 does NOT fit on the 3500... The angles are a bit different on the top and bottom... If you did mod a case for a 2150, you can continue modding it for a 3500 and still keep the clean lines...
Exactly, I did the same thing as the red case guy. It doesn't protect anything on the phone at all. Battery gets smashed. NO holster to clip it onto you . This is verizons worse dilemma and they don't want to fix it. Its annoying. I can't see why they can't make a damn case to fit the extended battery. Period. Dremeling a case does nothing for the phone, okay it protects the edges but if you drop it forget it.
