As far as an app to help, juice defender ultimate (off of 4shared, no need to pay) helped my battery life tremendously

Default I have a Anker 1900mah

I have a Anker 1900mah atm, last longer than stock, but not enough for the whole day.
I'm not a power user, but the phone hase some services running in the background, which i need.

Now I import a Seidio 4000mAh with Convert Extended Case from the US... 205$ with taxes and tariff
Can't get both in the EU, neither from amazon.co.uk where I ordered many thinks who aren't available in Germany in the past.

$205 for an extended battery? That's insane. Tell me you haven't bought/paid that yet?

Where the heck do you live?

Wouldn't it be more sensible for you financially speaking to buy a 2nd battery rather than an ultra expensive extended version?

You won't be disappointed with the Seidio 4000. It's an awesome battery. I'm constantly on my phone as you can see on the second screen shot. Over ten hours of screen on time.

Most of you guys are satisfied with the Anker 1900mAh, which may be the most recommended battery in several forums. But is there a risk that the Evo might be harmed by using a non-original battery like the Anker?

I bought an extended 3500mah battery, back cover, and charger off of Ebay for $11.99 not expecting much (was really interested in the charger, and for the price said what the heck).

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_2752wt_952

I have been using it for a few days now, and surprisingly, have had extremely good battery life. I usually use my phone moderately without charge from 6am-11pm leaving it at 10-30% on a daily basis by charge time. So far I have been able to go two days on this one while still having 20-30% of a charge left. I will have to take some screenshots to support usage going forward, but I am impressed so far, especially for the price! Has anyone else tried these and care to share their experience? At the very least it lasts substantially longer than stock, and won't break the bank like the brand name large capacity batteries.

lol. I'm on Seidio 4000, InfectedROM Eternity, and I listened to several hours of music so far (that huge awake period is when I fell asleep for 12 hours with my phone playing music the whole time). This battery is a beast.

EDIT: apparently I can't embed pictures so I have to use attachments

Re-Edit: Forgot to mention, I only had the screen on for 3.5 hrs, which helps explain how my phone easily lasted past 2 full days
