    Default Seidio Accessories for ThunderBolt

    Seidio has their accessories page up for the ThunderBolt seidioonline.com so for me the extd battery from HTC seems to be the right option.

    Seidio is only showing a slim 1600 mAh battery for $49.95, seems to not be worth the price for very little extra capacity.

    However, it does beg the question, why stock only a 1400mAh battery on such a phone if a 1600 mAh that is the same slim size was available? You'd think HTC would want to ship it with the most powerful battery that can fit in the phone smoothly to minimize the risk of complaints the battery cannot last a full day.

    An extra 200mAh is worth it I think. I don't want to get a new battery cover and ruin the slim(esque) form factor.

    There's a lot of argument over whether these Seido batteries actually add any usage time to your phone over stock batteries for the price.

    Valid point. So is it all hype and no substance?

    I think unless you pay for the extended battery and get the bigger battery door then its not really a big difference.

    Well assuming (this is the key word, since different companies rate their batteries much more generally) the quality of the seidio is the same as the OEM HTC battery-
    14.3% longer operation.

    So if a OTM battery lasts you 12 hours, the 1600 extended will last 13.7 hours.

    Seidio looks to be planning to ship all Thunderbolt cases/screen accessories starting this Friday. Which means you should have stuff at launch date ready to use!

    I personally have found that the measly 200mAh are worth the extra 50$ I have increased my usage and still by the end of the day I have a larger batter percentage.

    I do realise that I never fully gave the OEM batt long enough charging cycles (7days) to fully know the full capabilities, but after 8 days now with the 1600, I know that I have made the right choice and that is on top of taxing the battery harder now.

    plus a note: I am coming from a Droid Eris so I pretty much know all the settings to maximize the battery life. I used the same settings with both batteries.

    In my testing, I found the HTC and Seidio batteries to be virtually identical (the HTC battery came out slightly ahead, actually). If you are still within the return window for the Seidio, it might be worth $50 to give the HTC battery a second look.
