Seidio 1750 Users
Am I doing something wrong? I have been through 5 cycles with the Seidio 1750 battery and am seeing little improvement. I actually just charged it until green, turned it off, and waited another hour and a half. After unplugging it, I played a game of Shoot U. Over the course of 17 minutes, it went from 100% to 88%. Is it possible it wasn't fully charged at 100%? Or should I be more patient with it? (Yes, I charged the first time for 8 hours and also have run the battery to under 10% before recharging.)
Also, the instructions say to charge the battery for 2-3 hours after the green light goes on. Due to the fact that the Incredible seems to switch to battery power after hitting 100% and still plugged in, does that mean that the additional 2-3 hours need to be with the phone off?

I don't know exactly what you did but this is what I did.
Arrived in the mail, with the phone off I charged for 8 hours overnight. (SO it actually got about 10-12)
Next day used it, on my first charge I only got about 8 hours out of it. Continued this same charging pattern for a week. Each day I was gain 1 to 1.5 hours of life. I never let it get below 14% which is the point my phone says to plug it in. After a 5-6 day deal of doing that on a weekend when I had the time I bump charged it once. I charged fully from 14% - 100% waited for the light to turn green. Bump charged it by unplugging it and pluggin it back in three time.
Since then I've just charged it with the phone on sitting on my desk plugged into the computer and normally get 14-16 hours without thinking about it. I can go from 100% - ~80% in an hour if I use nav or play game for the full hour, along with all the background syncing etc.
Sounds like you are doing it the right way, you won't start seeing actual gains until about your 6th-7th full charge on it. So keep at it.The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich. Still needed JellyBeans. ;-)NEXUS!!!!!!

I had the 1750mAh battery. It was kind of freaky.
Some times, it'd go half hour or better before dropping significantly. Other times, it'd be in the 80s before an hour was up.
I'm not what I'd call a heavy user. A couple of calls, a bunch of email, I stream music for about an hour while I walk the dog...the gps is on with the tracker program.
I'd plug the phone in at night anywhere from 35% to 50%.

For a supposed 35% more battery I'm getting 150-200% more life. I get more life (not much more) than what my 1500 I tested did. So bottom line is rather this is a 1550, 1668,1700,1300 or whatever it works.

If the battery is going to drain from my usage of the phone, then that's one thing. But if it is draining when it just sits there, that's another. I'm starting to realize that my battery s most affected by 3G or WiFi. I'm on the OEM today and staying connected to my company's WiFi to see how that works out. I'd prefer not getting one of the bigger batteries but we shall see. I'm near a charger enough that it shouldn't be an issue. Plus, I can carry a spare battery.

Back on topic: I received my 1750 last Thursday, followed the charging instructions and am not on about the 8th charging cycle. Always charging at night with the phone on, and have been bump charging once in the morning for the last 2 days. I have no problem killing this battery with moderate (not heavy) use. I still have to make an effort to not use it as much just so it will last thru the day for me (off charger at 8AM) - most times I can kill it by 6PM. So I'm looking into the 3500 from Seidio.
