    Default Cheapo Extended Battery

    Just came across this on eBay. Anyone have any experience with one? Surely 3800mah is an overestimate, but I fared pretty well with a generic battery for my Evo. Definitely kept the phone going a lot longer than stock. For $10, free shipping, and a backing, I think I'll be the guinea pig on this one...

    True, didn't think about that until now. I just picked up a Mugen 3300mah and cover for $10 on eBay, so gonna try that for now. Right now NFC isn't anything I'm worried about. I'd like to root the phone and tweak power settings and hopefully go back to the stock battery. I really like the sizing with the stock battery/door, so i'm probably just going to stick with that once i realize how big the battery/door are on the Mugen, but who knows.

    The battery is twice as thick as the stock battery, so it comes with a new,larger back cover. The new, larger back cover does not have the NFC thingamabob on it which makes contact with the NFC doohickey terminals.

    Hope that makes sense.

    I bought one of these (after seeing it in this thread).

    Wowsa...there's some battery life for ya!

    I'm a fairly heavy user. My stock battery would call it quits by 1-2pm (coming off the charger at 7:30am).

    With this sucker, I can get 24-26 hours out of the phone between charges.

    ...and I successfully transplanted the NFC chip into the extended battery cover.

    got my cake, and I'm eating it too!

    I bought my wife a cheapo extended battery, she loves it, but she is not a heavy user like myself. I invested today in brand name $65. I'm betting it will improve my battery time with my heavy usage.
