I got the extended battery and I'm getting about 7-8 hr of use.. but I'm using very heavy use. Like wifi tether. Texting all day. YouTube. Internet. Extended battery is awesome

Thanks for the info! I can confirm, just placed an order for mine, $25 plus tax. Doesn't appear to be a discount on all batteries for all phones, but ours is good.

I got this about a week ago and I absolutely love it, but has anyone noticed it takes like 6-7 hours to recharge from dead. It seems extraordinarily long.


Also it charges really slow, before you could see it charge 20% in like 45-60 minutes, now it does like 7% in an hour.

Still totally worth it as long as you have a plug in each night, you'll never go dead.

I also have the extended battery. Despite popular opinion I like the shape of it better! It actually fits in my hand now lol.

Anyway so far my battery lifetime hasn't seen a significant improvement, (went to sleep last night with it at 62% and this morning it was dead and didn't wake me up)!

It's only been a few days though maybe it will improve with time...

Edit: Mine also takes FOREVER to charge up... Once it got stuck at 75% and would charge no further, but unplugging and re-plugging it made it charge the rest of the way.

I turn off data and wifi and that seems to take care of it.

Mine takes a while to charge too, if I charge it from about 5-10%, 5 hours still won't charge it to 100%

I agree, airplane mode and make sure the screen is off(I have mine on at all times when plugged in, mainly for work), and it'll charge much faster, plus your alarm will still work.
