2750mAH Battery Availability Notice
Hey guys, just sort of a heads-up here. I got my Thunderbolt this morning, and called a few hours ago inquiring about the 2750mAH extended battery. It is up for sale in most VZW stores, however be advised:
They are completely sold out in four of the five local stores I called in the Seattle area, and I reserved one of the last three batteries at the fifth.
I'm not sure if they're being sold in other locations yet, or if everyone has already figured this out, so just letting everyone know. If you're looking to get one soon, in person, I'd go shortly.

Hah it definitely does. It by no means makes it unusable, but is simply awkward for a while. I'm keeping it as a trip/backup battery unless I can't make the stock 1400 meet my everyday needs. We hall see. But again, it seems to be a hard one to find right now.

The HTC 2750 battery from htcpedia is in stock and shipping. Their website says they have 61 left as of right now. I just happened to check there again this morning and it said shipping will start by tomorrow so I placed an order. Just received an email saying they shipped it.Smartphones:Palm Centro>Curve 8330>Storm 9530>Storm 9550>Bold 9650>HTC Thunderbolt>Galaxy Nexus>Galaxy Note II Rooted * HP TouchPad

Wow, so many battery threads spread all over the TB forums!
I have the 2750, be prepared because it is one massive battery. It adds a lot of bulk to the phone. I'm not sure if I'm keeping mine yet.
Another thing to keep in mind with this battery is that with the standard battery, or the Seidio 1600 the TB has a smooth, sleek back. With the 2750 it adds a large bulge to the center of the back of the phone but the top and bottom are the same size. The damn thing looks pregnant! It definitely kills the sleek look of the phone.

i bought the extended battery. I charged it on friday morning and didn't have to recharge until sunday morning with moderate use. i bought the phone around 12 on thursday and charged it and had to recharge friday morning. well worth it. there is a substantial bump with the larger battery but I now find the phone easier to hold. i give it two thumbs up.
