    I have a 10k slim battery for travel

    Fair enough. I just don't like having to worry about cords when I'm traveling. Just personal preference, but I totally get why people like external battery packs.

    Any concerns that using the battery mods will ultimately decrease your internal battery's life? Continuous charge/discharge cycles is what kills batteries. By having the mod on there, you are literally always charging and discharging. Even if your phone is at 100%, its trickle charging.
    That's what the service plan is for

    Out of curiosity what are the reasons why you guys got the battery mod? I am almost already near a plug but figured most people don't have USB c so there would be no one to virtue a cable from. That was my justification fit the mod.
    I got it for the added power I came from a v10 that was a battery sucker in standby the zforce is very lean on ba6ery in standby

    Would you be willing to snap photos and post them of the chargers? Or a model number of the chargers?
    It think it just needs to be a fast charger that will make the phone say turbo charging. I've gotten it to charge the mod fine with any charger I have that does that.

    I did get it to pop up saying it was turbo charging.
    I had to use the Verizon branded usb c fast charger. It uses the usb c to usb c cable. And it worked charging my battery mod too. Battery mod-1471112671760.jpg

    Adding wireless charging is huge.

    For me it was sometimes at work I don't have access to power/outlet. I can be there sometimes up to 24 hours. I have a few battery packs but they are heavy and space and weight are a premium. I will carry this phone on my belt in an Otterbox case/belt clip. I broke down and ordered the Otterbox Defender today. I'll carry the battery in my go bag. The only pain will be having to take the case off to attach the mod.

    Plus I'm kind of a tech nerd and I think the battery mod concept is an awesome thing. I can't wait to see what else they come out with.

    I was going to get a cheapo tablet to play games/watch videos on to "preserve" battery life but now I'm thinking I might just get a battery mod. I'm not big on having multiple devices since, well, you need to carry the device around with you to use it.

    I actually have both the Tumi and Incipio batteries. Both are the wireless charging. I plan to wrap or modify one in a different color. I like the way the Tumi looks stock but the Incipio does feel a little better. The Tumi has that gun metal type stainless look. Not sure which one I'm going to wrap yet. I use either one of my battery mods a good bit. Although a little heavy, it's not too bad. Really overall the Force is still relatively thin or in line with other larger screen phones. What I like most is that either battery when attached looks like the phone came that way. I see so much potential for these mods. I'm hoping a company will revamp the current battery mod and make a slimmer version even if it doesn't have quite the same output as the current batteries have. The Force already has one of the longest battery life you can get so a slimmer version of the battery would still give you all the extra juice you will ever need in a days time, maybe even two days. I believe it would be rare for any of us to go more than two days without hooking up the phone and battery to the turbo charge anyway. Plus all the times in between when you plug in when you're in your vehicle. A thinner battery definitely should be something that should be offered you would think. I may be totally wrong. I just hope the mods take off and keep coming so we all have options.

    So far the Verizon bumper case is the only one that will work with the mod on. If you just use the mod occasionally it's probably ok, but for everyday wear and tear use I wouldn't recommend it.

    Bit the bullet and ordered the Incipio from Moto ($20 cheaper than everywhere else). Shipping from China -- yeesh. Gonna take a while.

    Under heavy use I get about 36 to 48hrs out of my force and the tumi battery mod.

    I just bought the Z and have held off on the battery mod for now. Time will tell how I get on with the 2600 mAh...

    I'm actually hoping for a smaller (say 1000 mAh) battery mod which more resembles the style mods and keeps the phone slim. 3600 mAh is enough for a really busy day.

    I believe that would be a very popular mod.

    I would buy one. I bought the Incipio, used it twice so far.

    I have the Incipio as well. I love the battery life, but it makes the phone too heavy for my liking.

    Yeah, I don't really want the Incipio. I thinks it's ugly and too large as it doubles the size of the Z.

    Like I said, I hope a thinner battery mod is released even if it is 1000 mAh.

    Totally agree. I'd pay more for thinner battery with wireless charging.

    I think the incipio battery mod looks fine, and i love the soft texture of it.

    I think the thickness is fine, the weight though is too heavy. Despite this it's still handy to be able to stick it on the back if you need a few extra hours of battery life till you can reach a charger (without being tethered to a battery pack)

    I agree on the idea of a smaller 1000mah battery mod. I'm getting used of how light the Moto Z is, but it almost feels too light, like I could easily drop it because there is no weight holding it in my hand. That could be just a placebo affect, I haven't dropped it yet!

    Having a 1000mah battery pack might be that perfect balance of weight, not too heavy, not too light, whilst giving you a little extra juice. I'm actually finding without a battery mod I consistently get 4 hours SOT, which is decent battery life for me without a mod. So I wouldn't be phased at all if the mod only adds say 1 extra hour SOT. If the weight was good, I may keep it permanently on my phone. Even better make a 1000mah battery pack, which wraps around the sides of your phone as well, like a case.
