    Default Extended battery life

    How is the extended battery holding up vs the regular one. It's only 300 mah more. Waiting for my gnex in the mail and I only get 2.5-3 hours out if my tbolt with stock battery in 4g. I have a work email that is synced and praying the gnex is a little better. Would you recommend the spare battery charging kit instead ? Also where do u guys buy your accessories?

    I purchased the 2100 mah battery and never even booted the phone with the stock battery. Being a new device i was using it alot the first day. From full charge to around 20 percent battery it took about 10 hours.

    Today I got up and used pandora before work, I also used tapatalk a little and sent a couple txt's before i went in. The phone was in my pocket for 8 hours with occasional use. I check the battery life about 4 hours into my shift and i was only down to 90% battery, most of that being "phone idle" and the screen.

    I will report more with screen shots if you want but my initial will be rating will be very good. Keep in mind im comming from a Thunderbolt which had the worst battery life in the history of smartphones.

    Is there a toggle of some sort available in ICS for this? 3G/4G selection?

    If you go to settings -> More (under wireless & networks) -> Mobile networks ->Network Mode
    From there you can switch to CDMA only.

    Does anyone have the car cradle and does the phone fit in it with the extended battery?

    I got 8 hours down to 29% with what I will think will be my normal usage, a dozen phone calls and texts, an hour of YouTube, turning off the WiFi and bluetooth when not using, used navigator to route me out of town into a 3G area, downloaded a few 20mb apps and sending & receiving maybe 40 emails with doc attachments, logging onto my company's GApps. I have the extended 2150Mah battery and there just barely is a 1mm difference in thickness on the case so I am sure no one will have any problem with car mounts or cases made for the standard backing.

    tl;dr - battery life is more than I expected on extended battery - happy with purchase.
