    Opinions, comments, will it explode in fiery death? 3000 mAh battery for Optimus S
    got my battery today, here's a picture of it in my palm. Does add some heft to it, not sure I like it. Might give it to my mom who doesn't want to put bumblebee on hers. She doesn't like the constant charging it needs.

    Charging now, will take a few days to see how I like charging less frequently and if its worth it.

    Yes I know my desk is a mess, don't give me a hard time

    Well my first discharge from 100% down to 3% took 3 days 9 hours. Now I will flash Bumblebee and see how it does with a full charge.

    Just got back fromthe local sprint store, the s batteries fit right in the V, so there should be no issues

    If u take a look at the inside of the stock back cover u will notice its for a sprint model. There are no major differences in hardware between the V and S.

    Well this time its taking awhile so thought I would drop an update. The first draw was without any battery calibrating at all. This time after I thought I had it fully charged. (phone off plugged in and the battery image stopped charging cycle) I did a battery history wipe in recovery then shut off and to my surprise the phone charged for another 2 1/2 hours. Needless to say I didn't expect to have my phone off for that long that day. I wiped the battery data again and this time it only charged for about 30 seconds before showing full.

    Now with Bumblebee I do expect the life span to be longer than first time with ath3nos's CM7 but its getting crazy imo. I am at 4 days 2-3 hours and it reads 46%. I admit for the avg this is lite use but WIFI and 3G are on fully time no sleep I run and use GrooveIP for many outgoing calls per day and give the phone to my son at least once a day for 5 mins or so while we are in the car and he gets whiny.(hes 5yrs) He plays angry birds like a champ. He has opened more levels than I. Its also my main alarm clock with like 4 set.

    Ended up racking up 6 days 12 mins and yes I quit using it for the most part for the last 4 hours so it would break 6 days but hey atleast I admit it. I would guess from the use I had that the avg user could easily see 3 days consistently on this battery with above avg usage. It also charges up from about 5% to full in about 4 1/2 hours turned on.

    On a side note I expected this battery to get alittle hotter than the stock one but that wasn't the case at all and may not be the same for all but mine stays under 90F all the time and rarely is over 70F unless from body heat. Even during a 4 hours stress test with screen on it was only 72F at 69F room temp left on a fake wood desk. 66.2F seems to be ambient temp

    Thanks for the updates! I just placed an order for an extended battery. (I'm going to miss my purple rubberized case...)

    I've been using my first charge of it and an currently at 30% just under two days. Tonight I'm going to clear battery stats and check again. Using harmonia.

    I am hoping someone who uses a silicone softcase might try and stretch it around after they install the new battery. There could be afew out there that will fit this fat thing now but hard to tell from pics. So if anyone trys it plz tell us what happens and where we might find some. plz.

    I was seeing how long mine could last and I fell asleep (was on 2 days) . I think i may have killed it permanently, or drained it too much. I left it to charge, after it died sometime while i slept, and it hasn't moved over 1%. If bad comes to worse, I'll just buy a new one. They're not that expensive.

    Yea a couple of times actually. I thought it could have just got out of sync. Also put my original battery back in to test and it charges fine. Tried a different charger too.

    Edit - Wait a minute. I just checked. I bought a new charger earlier that puts out at 1A charge instead of my 700mA that came with the phone. After sitting at 1% for 2 and a half hours, it just moved. I guess it just took a while. Well, thanks for the reply anyways. Maybe it's ok now.

    How does this affect the speaker sound quality? I seems like it has to go through a lot more plastic now.

    IMHO it sounds better. Kinda how the bose radios use the internal ports to extend sound waves but no where near as good. The general range of sound is nicer and if it gets covered u can still hear it. With the camera it reduces glare.

    I can agree with the camera glare. The cone on the back really makes better pictures.

    Also here's a picture of my day with heavy use (Star Legends, texting, some wifi, 3g enabled, pandora through work, and web browsing) though the day. I dont think I could go back to that tiny battery.

    Wow, in the pictures it's HUUUUUUGE but I'll take 3 days of battery life, and the extra heft and thickness could be nice, making it easier to grip. So glad to hear that this is working out well for you guys, I just ordered one!
