The nice things about the 1800 versus the larger batteries are a lower price and it fits inside the stock cover.

which 1800 did you purchase? the Mugen or a generic?

IMO don't buy that bulky battery just install the new rubix xcel rom for the phone make a battery calibration than lower the brightness and voila your battery last much longer.

I have the mugen power 3600 mah battery in my phone. Probably the best investment i've ever made since the 2400 mah battery on my old G1. It lasts me through the ENTIRE day on 3G (I never saw the 4G icon btw. probably because of where i live)

I leave for work at around 8AM, drive to college at 4PM, and drive back home at 8PM. on all trips (30-45 mins), I listen to online MP3 streams on 3G. At work and college, I check twitter, gtalk, G+ messenger, email, and some light browsing.

i hit 15% battery at around 1 AM or so. I never felt so careless about charging my phone :P

EDIT: also, the fat battery cover makes the phone feel far more ergonomic than with the stock battery cover. the size feels just natural for my hands.

anyone who has the 1800 mah battery, which one did you buy? i bought replacement batteries off ebay, they were super cheap- 2 1800 mah batteries plus external charger for 11 bucks. if i charge em up in the external charger and put em in the device they work fine, but anytime i try to plug the phone in, either to a wall charger or usb, the phone goes dead... completely dead, and i have to unplug, pull the battery and reboot. has anyone experienced this? i guess i got what i paid for

edit: i'm guessing people got the Mugen 1800, i see it now on ebay for around $44.

Don't get em, haha. The battery life on them seemed even less than the stock 1500 mah! Plus the flaw I mentioned about the phone shutting down when plugged in with those batteries. I've had some good luck at times with cheap replacement batteries, but that particular set was a real flop. For reference, I think it was $8.99 for 3 batteries + ext. charger.... avoid!

Seems like a good investment if you tend to use your device like a computer. But for me, it'd be pointless.
