Not necessarily true. With the Seidio battery, I can get 30 hours out of it - yes, 30. The thing is you have to manage your up and awake times. If they're about the same, that is causing the problem and why your battery life is horrible.

1. Unsync and DELETE your HTC Flickr account if you have it active, and reboot the phone.
2. Download TaskPanel, and set the Calendar to the auto-kill list. This will make it so any time you put the phone on sleep, it will shut down the Calendar. This is a big deal because the Calendar is one of the major things that keeps the phone awake for some reason.
3. If you're an office or somewhere with Wifi for most of the day, go to Settings > Wi-Fi settings > Menu\Advanced > Wi-Fi sleep policy and change that to Never. This will keep your Wi-Fi active and stop it from searching for a 3G signal after 15 minutes. Yes, I know some people say Wifi is bad, but it's NOT as bad as your phone constantly looking for a signal.
4. Limit your active GPS usage (Maps, Nav, etc). This eats battery like popcorn.
Most importantly: STOP OBSESSING WITH YOUR BATTERY! Just let it be, and if you do the above your Seidio battery should last a good while. The trick is to minimize your "Awake Time" usage. The less that is, the more life you'll get.
