Anyone know where I can buy some extended batteries? I cant find any for the Vivid beside the large 3500mAh ones.

And that's all your going to find unless you want a extended battery that chargers through micro usb which is just a little bit ridiculous. On average I get two to two and half days on 3500 extended battery. Your not going to find a battery the same size as stock and expect it to be extended with the current tech its just not possible.

How big does that 3500 mAh battery make your phone? Lol

Anyone have a pic of that?
It probably adds a little less than half of the thickness of the phone. It does feel good in the hand and not having to worry about battery life is pretty nice as well.

Yea... I might try one just to see what it's like. I don't have battery life issues, but I think I'd be unable to unplaster myself from my phone with a battery that big. I think in the back of my mine, the thought that power isn't infinite actually enforces a healthy amount of moderation :p

I bought a 1900mah "brick" that I can plug into the phone which then acts as a charger or I can use to talk off of. I charge it separately and just carry it in my briefcase or wherever. I got it mainly so that if I'm not near something to charge (I don't really think the car charger is something that I can use), I can plug this in, throw in in my briefcase, and attend my meetings or whatever. When I need it, it's probably all charged up.

I wish getting into the back was easier, otherwise I'd just have a separate battery. I bought into the Otter case and rubber bumper, so getting that on and off is no easy chore...not something I want to do once a day.

Thanks for the responses guys I didn't want the 3500 mAh battery because it seems to make the phone a lot bigger but I guess we can't always get what we want perfectly. For the 3500 mAh battery, does it make the phone much more difficult to put in your pocket? Also is there any specific case that would be good with it? I doubt they make cases with extended batteries in mind but its worth a try I suppose.
