Extended Battery sold out!?!?!?!
I went to my local VZW Corporate store to pick up an extended battery. To my surprise, they were sold out. I inquired about the inductive charging back, the salesman thought it was in but no dice. He tried selling me a quick charge pack but I turned him down.
I was just surprised to hear that the battery was sold out and maybe that's a bad thing. It tells you just how demanding this phone is of it's battery. I'm currently running BAMF Remix with IMO's lean kernel and it does well. I average around 5 hours awake time and 14 -15 hours off the charger.
I also work in an office where my signal is -65 to -75db. Today I was out of the office bringing up a remote site on a point-to-point connection and my battery went to hell in a hand-basket filled with lead. I was only 11 hours off the charger and 3 hours awake when the battery hit 5%.
Anyway, I ended up going home and ordering it online. This perplexes me because the VZW sales agent tried to order one for me but said there were none in stock. Maybe corporate stores have a different pool to order from? I dunno but I find it silly that I can order an item with overnight shipping online yet they can't do the same thing in store.
My battery has shipped, hopefully I'll see it tomorrow!
