    Default Are People With Rebooting Problems Using Extended Batteries?

    A little poll. How many of you who are having the random reboot problem are using extended life batteries?

    I saw someone else raise this question before but I think it got lost in the shuffle of discussion about the firmware and possible network issues. More people than average are using extended life batteries with the Thunderbolt and I was wondering of there was a possible correlation.

    Are you experiencing random reboots and if so what battery are you using?

    * Yes, stock battery (or additional battery) -- this can be if you have two more more stock batteries and swap them.
    * Yes, the 2750 mAh extended battery from VZW/HTC
    * Yes, Sedio
    * Yes, a cheap battery off eBay or elsewhere
    * Yes, a different extended life battery
    * No, I am not experiencing random reboots.

    EDIT: For anyone using more than one please vote for the one it happens most on.

    Nice idea! I personally am not having reboots at all. I use 2 OEM standard batteries and swap them as needed.

    Riding stock everything here. Randoms occur about 2-4 times a day. Sometimes while I'm using it, sometimes when it's sittling there just charging. Girlfriend has TB without update, no reboots ever.

    I don't see what the battery would have to do with reboots.

    I have the OM and a Sedio 1600 spare - no random reboots............... NOT rooted.

    Stock battery and I said this before in a different thread, but my reboots always occur when my battery hits 50%. When draining and charging.

    Reboots a couple of times a day minimum, often shutting off the phone while idle. Using the stock and extended battery as needed.

    Stock. 2750 extended battery.

    Rebooted once when clicking on an address in a text message and it was opening the map accessing data via 4g. Just turned off bit strangley went straight to the thunder sound effect not the HTC green logo.

    It would if somehow there were a short in the battery or of the batter door (extended life battery from HTC replaces the door) if one of the underside connections wasn't right.

    That's where I was only it was more like 4-8x a day. I have today and tomorrow off so I switched back to the stock battery to see if it made any difference. It still reboots but not quite as often and I am going on almost 8 hrs of uptime the best I have had in a while and the sound of my boot animation is back after the phone shut itself off earlier today for no reason. *shrug*

    EDIT: and it just rebooted after getting an email at about 7:53 uptime.
