I posted this over in the Optimus T forums and here was my thought process ...
The P500 is listed. I can only imagine the P500 and P509 and LS670 use the same battery. Even if mugen doesn't update their supported phone i am going to buy one of these when they are available and check it out.
EDIT - Also just wanted to let you know Mugen has a very good reputation so I won't bat an eye about buying one of their products.

yeah, I had a hong kong made spare battery charger for my Touch Pro back in the day, and was considering another one if I bought an Evo. Spare batteries can often be found in a Sprint store, asking the reps behind the counter nicely (sometimes they have spare parts from open box units, refurbished phones, etc). Helps if you have TEP since they feel more obligated to help you out.
I've gotten at least 3 spare batteries over the last couple of years with Sprint like that. Just walk in and ask. If the phone is too new, they might not have anything behind the counter yet.
Meanwhile, I'm not in a rush to get one now. The battery life on this thing is actually very respectable, especially for a smartphone.
Seriously- the first day I got it, it went off the charger at 3:30am (unplugged in the middle of the night for testing), and battery didn't complain until 6pm that evening. If you don't think that seems so amazing, remember that the battery has not yet been trained (first few charges generally don't last as long) and I used data HEAVILY (trying everything, installing tons of apps, etc) that first day.
I think this will easily go a whole day and then some on a charge...

I had done a lot on it yesterday, calls, gps, just installed an aux jack in my car so I could run pandora, etc... battery held up today until I plugged it in at my desk around 10 am. And that is since 8am the previous day. Not bad at all!

Yeah, ditto for me too. I bought one of those generic batteries from China, on eBay. I tried slicing off the clips and the battery fits in, but I can't close the cover.
I think the clips are actually necessary now, to depress the connector. Doesn't seem like the round (OEM) / square (generic) design made much of a difference.

No word from Muegen or Seidio on a replacement. It blows my mind that a cell phone lines sells 2 million units in 2 months, i cant even imagine how many have been sold now but likely well over 3 million, and we still have such a limited selection of accessories. I would think that if we were going to see a boom of accessories we would have seen it before Christmas but hopefully we'll be pleasantly surprised someday.
Heres to hoping. Happy Holidays!

well that sucks, i was looking forward to a good review on an extended battery.
i really hope things pick up for this device. it's a great device but, as you said, everything is still pretty limited on it. hopefully soon, more accessories will head our way.

Hey there was wondering if anyone knew of an aftermarket battery for the optimus S. I am on my phone constantly throughout the day and regularly kill the battery in about 5 hours. Unfortunately i have to have wifi, gps and a bright screen at all times so it eats away at the stock battery pretty quickly. Also would like to say hello and offer a thanks for creating an awesome ROM for an already awesome phone.
