I just ordered the OEM 1800Mah from Newegg. Something about OEM just makes me happy.

My stock battery has been jumping all over the place saying it is charged when it is not and loosing the bulk of its charge during reboots.

It should be here this week. Good thread.

Doesn't sound like OEM is making you happy lol!

before you shave your battery slot, give this a try - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=181

you just need a folded piece of paper

Thanks it works great!

My only concern now is the back cover of the vibrant. The volume side of the phones cover doesn't really snap all the way down, and because of this, i have to push down on the volume down key harder. Did this sort of thing happen to you?

So I bought the same one from a local dealer (it was just more expensive).
It fits well, and the phone seems to be a little heavier. I'm charging it for the first time... if it will last more than 14hours, it'll definitely be better than the stock one.

1d10h... way better than the stock one.

Yes same here. I use a case so i can't really see it but i was able to get it to snap on the volume side and not the power side which may solve your problem also

First cycle with the 2300 andida only lasted 8 hours : (
Hopefully second cycle fairs better...

your piece of paper is likely too long, i had the same problem but once i trimmed down the paper so it was minimally long and a bit of work i was able to get my phone to seal like normal, as far as battery life the first cycle tends to be low in battery life, mine was 10 hrs 1st cycle, 15 hrs 2nd cycle im on 3rd cycle

5.5 hours in at 70%
1.25 hrs screen on
.75 hrs of music playing using poweramp

so it gets better, patience
