    Seidio Innocell II 1750mAh is the way to go if you dont want to add bulk. I would also recommend the external charger. That way you always have a fresh battery at the ready. I dont even bother plugging my phone in anymore just swap when battery gets too low.

    I got bothe the battery and charger from Amazon

    Default 1800mAh

    Got this battery from HTCexpress for $20. Arrived with 60% juice left. I charged it until green LED, then bumped charged it for 30 minutes until green LED then rebooted phone. This was at around 10:50 this morning(01/19). Right now at 20:13 hours the phone is at 45%. I used Pandora, Sirius/XM, Slacker for a solid two hours as well as surfing the web, light downloading. Not bad for the first day. Yes, I'm rooted and I use CPU Tuner and JuiceDefender. Stock ROM and kernel. I'm impressed. I wanted the stock form factor rather then the larger 2100 battery and cover(although I won't rule out getting one). But I like what I'm seeing so far.

    If you go to the Incredible Accessories forum, there are reviews of pretty much every battery for the DInc... I have the Seidio 3500 and OEM 2150...

    It depend on what you're looking to get out of the battery. For instance - the 1750 is about 25% more battery power - which work great for me once I did three to four full charges.( Those other batteries make the phone look too bulky)IMO.

    I second the suggestion of the HTCExpress battery (1800 mah). I got 2 of them plus an external charger for $35 shipped from them on eBay (seller ChiChiTek). I can ususally get about 30-35 hours on these batteries with moderate use.

    Is the 1800 mah battery stock size, or does it stick out the back of the phone? Also, who manufactures it?

    Thanks again everyone! I decided to go with the 1750 for now from Amazon! The external also sounds like a good idea but I will test the 1750 first to see if it can get me through the day

    I had gotten the seidio 1750 battery and wasn't impressed at all. It really didn't do much better than stock. I did however purchase 2 1800 batteries with the charger from amazon for $40. I was skeptical at first but they are awesome. They performed much better than the seidio. Excellent price as well.

    now since you have this battery a couple of datys how is it doing?

    i it the 1500 mAh from bidallies on ebay and that works good for me i think i paid 15.00 but if this is true what i have been reading in this thread ill pick this one up then i can use launcher pro.

    the 1500 works for me but launcher pro kills it cause it runs on top of htc sense so with this maybe i can get away with it

    How did you go from 1750 to 1800 and get better results with the larger one? You only went up 50 mah.... Or is it simply the fact that you have two of them now?

    I got the 1750 and it hold me pretty much the whole day on moderate use.

    I was reading reviews on the 3500's and some people are saying they can go like 2-3 days with out recharging it. (I assume they are using there phone in moderation.) But that's insane for a smart phone.

    Well 2-3 days I would say you'd have to go with NO usage and NO processes running which is definitely impossible (if you have a Inc cuz why would you go that long without using it?) If I text most of the day, Internets usage moderate and app dl/use average I will have about 30% by the time i go to bed. I have process manager to make sure unwanted programs dont run, may not use battery but do use processor which in turn uses battery. And the batt temp stays within the 90-95 degree range.

    I also have the chichitec (EBay seller name) 1800mah batteries. I actually won mine for $16.00 and it's two batteries and a wall charger. I previously used a 1500mah and the new ones blow it away. No hard numbers, I simply have no time for that, but there's a definite improvement.

    For all you siedio fans, I get a full day of moderate use with the stock battery. If you are getting the same, you got ripped off. It's been well documented that Siedio batteries are rated higher than what they actually hold. Just google it. Many 1700 siedio actually hold 1400 or less.

    Your best bet is to get a second battery with an external charger like the poster above said. When one dies, swap it out. You never have to plug in the phone again.

    Another vote for the Seidio 1750 mAh. I've had it for about 5-6 months, and while it's not perfect (The phone just hogs battery no matter what), rooted using Senseless rEVOlution and I'm getting a full day out of my battery NO problem, with only the occasional bump charge (Really no need to bump charge it on a daily basis, if ever). Pretty slow day today granted, but after 13 hours I'm at 75%.

    Can people with the 3500 mAh battery take some pictures of it with the case on? Interested to see how much bulk it adds.

    Your just looking at numbers. To answer your question the 1750 says its 1750 but isnt a true 1750. The 1800 rated 1750. Numbers don't mean anything unless you can get the true rating. You just became a victim of advertisement just by reading numbers.

    There are plenty of pics of the 3500mAh on a device. Do a quick search and you will find a bunch
