    Extended Battery

    I grabbed this from amazon to see about getting better life from my phone while at work. As it seems, after killing the battery for the first time, charging it to full while the phone was off, then resetting the battery stats in bootstrap (I got the steps right I hope)... my phone seems to be lossing power faster than before.

    This is the first full day I have had it at work and remembered that my original battery got better after a few charge cycles.

    Anyone have any experience with something like this?

    Did I do something wrong?

    Ducky

    Did you let it completely discharge (as in it powered the phone OFF) before charging it all the way up?

    Yes I did. I finally (yes you can say it) read the packaging. After the 5th-6th charge, the battery will increase in preformance. Today I have already gotten way better results from yesterday. I left work with it at 5%. An hour and a half before I leave and its only at 50%. I know the next few days wont yeild results that nice but a few more bumps and Ill be a happy panda!

    Get Juice Defender it really conserves battery power. the pro version is worth the extra $4

    I use memory optimizer with the ever so often app killer and manually adjusting screen brightness with auto sync to safe power. Everyting jucie defender does but for free.

    Actually the base app of Juice Defender is free. More options if you pay.

    I've had my extended battery for 3 months now and I can't seem to find a problem. My battery life is better than the stock one.
