can someone post a proper voltage reading? preferably one after the ext has been used for a few charge cycles and has settled. I bought one of these and I'll need to compare after I charge full/drain a few times. hoping it's not like stock where it was 4353mV

I already posted this in another thread (but there are tons of extended battery threads).

Anyone who ALREADY HAS an extended battery (and the back that goes with it), here is an extended battery (WITHOUT the back) that is the EXACT same part number as Rezounds. It's worked in 3 rezounds for me without issue. It behaves exactly as the Rezound one (it's the same part number.)

ITS $4!!!!!!!

FOUR DOLLARS, from HTC (not some x-brand).

It's worth charging, and tossing in your glove compartment. It's legit. Get it!

are you the seller?

Just kidding. Good deal. I bought one like this for my dinc on ebay. Everyone swore it was junk, and it would last 3 months tops. I just retired the dinc, and after 18 months of using that battery alongside the stock battery (used a seidio charger for the batteries...I never plugged the phone in, just shut down and swapped batteries when it was dead) that battery was still working fine. It was starting to not last as long as when I first got it, but so was the stock battery. I'd say they had lost about 20% of their capacity based on the usage I was getting. For $8 (with shipping) it's worth the risk.

Now if I can only find the adapter piece for the Seidio chargers for the Rezound battery so I don't have to buy a whole new charger.......
HTC Incredible (AMOLED) rooted S-off
HTC Rezound unlocked & rooted
Unlocked MDK Rooted Galaxy S4

If it ain't broke....fiddle with it to try to make it better.

The VZW "sale" was still going this past Friday. Now I'm frantically looking for the clear insert for extended battery that came with my windshield mount. :-/

Question for those who have the extended battery already - if you lay the Rezound on its back, does it lay flat with the extended battery cover? At work I leave mine on my desk and type on it without picking it up - just wondering if the curvature of the extended battery cover is such that the phone no longer lays flat without moving around when typing...

ive tried one on at my store and can confirm it does NOT lay flat. it's like a rounded edge so it bobs front and back
