I just replaced my original battery with an Anker 1800mAh and the life of my phone is amazing again! Ordered it through Amazon.

I ordered a set of 2 plus the charger from Amazon and I am currently VERY pleased with the results. For 20 bucks, it's hard to beat. I have been doing the suggested full battery cycles with both of them at first. (Fully Charge (using charger that it came with) to discharge) Currently I am at 46% with 18 hrs on it. Granted I do turn my data off before I go to bed, seems useless to have on when I am sleeping. However, I was only getting aroun 6 hrs of use just with minimal use. I realize these results will probably lessen, but If i can get 10 hrs I will be happy.

Got any links to it? :P

On a related note, I heard that the battery on the epic 4G touch is exactly the same size, however it contains 1850mAh. Thinking about buying an OEM of that, anyone heard such thing?

EDIT: SUCH A DOUCHEEEEEEEEEEE

Landed on page 20th, and thought that was the start of the thread. LOL

Calibration is overrated. But fully discharging and fully charging will extend the life of battery (less charge cycles).

You sure that's the OEM?

I got 8.5 hours before hitting 90% on Doc Master's V8 even though WiFi won't turn off. You might have a bad flash or bad battery. Format everything and try again, then watch to see if CPU idles properly and WiFi turns off with the screen, and apps are behaving. A drain like that should make your phone very hot if it's really using 10% that fast.
