That argument doesn't hold water at all.
Show us that it takes 15 seconds...From start to finish. That includes the time you start to take it out of your wallet, to the time you are able to use the phone again.
I know you say "15 seconds to swap out the battery
", and that part of the swap is probably close, but to me, that is not the whole picture. I still don't think you can even just change the battery in 15 seconds though, so I still ask you to show me that you can. I tried....numerous times, but the closest I could get was about 30 seconds. The longest part was getting all of the tabs snapped back down for the battery cover, and still found I would always miss one. That alone usually took about 15 seconds to get done right.
But realistically, some of us look at the time involved with just getting prepared to change the battery out, and then the time to boot back into a usable mode, and then putting the old battery away, so that you don't get it mixed up with your other good spare battery, then the time involved when you get home and have to remember to put those dead batteries on the charger again.
What happens the night when I forget to put my spare batteries on the charger??? What if I leave the house without my spare batteries??? I guess I am just out of luck the next day when my main battery gets weak.
I always remember to plug my phone in at night beside of the bed, because that is what I have done with all of my phones for 15+ years. It has become something automatic to me every night now. With the extended battery, I only have to remember to plug one thing in, and don't have to worry about extra batteries at all.
I think my argument holds a lot of water, until you can prove otherwise in a real world situation, from start to finish.
