Battery cover request
I am researching this phone and I am almost 100% sure this is the one I want. But I keep reading about how hard it is to remove the battery cover and the largest complaint is the battery life. Does someone know of a video that shows the removal of the cover or can someone clever here make one and post on Youtube?

When using the device, just try to remember it's more of a computer than a phone. With all the things you can do with it, you're going to drain the battery. That being said, if and when someone makes a good higher capacity battery, I'm getting one. Until then, I have a charger at home and at work and a car charger.

There's no two ways about it, the Inspire battery life isn't good. It's just a short as my old HD2s, so there's no surprise that the large screen eats up batteries. Since extended batteries aren't an option, an extra OEM battery is recommended. If you ask nicely, a kind AT&T rep can use the Warranty Accessory Matcher screen in their sales system to send you another one free of charge.

I wouldn't say an extended battery is not an option. Battery technology is evolving just like everything else. Someone will figure out a way to get more juice out of the same size package. Unfortunately it will probably cost more than my Inspire did.

Battery life stinks because HTC included a 1200mah battery. You can get a Seido 1300mah battery, or a 1600mah one from Amazon. They are made for the Inspire and fit nicely in the battery slot, adding hours to the life of your phone between charges. The 1600mah battery is only $29 on Amazon.

When you've started using the phone for a while tap settings>about phone>battery>battery information. It shows you which apps are running and the percentage that task is using in a clean "bar graph" format. From that you can "analyze" what is using the most and try cutting down on it. It will really improve your battery life.

i actually bought an accessory kit on ebay, came with 3 screen protectors, 3 cases, car charger, home charger, extra usb cable, 2 stylus, window mount, 2 1600ma batteries and a battery charger (so the battery itself can sit in the charger) for 32 bucks...i must say 1600ma are really nice, once you calibrate it. my first full charge on the 1600ma battery went down so quickly like i still had the 1320ma battery in, but it stayed at 1% forever..(like 2 hours)
