Monday Poll: Do You Use an Extended Battery?

Earlier today, I poked fun at Mugen’s new 4000mAh double-wide trailer extended battery, but in all fairness, there are people that could benefit from something with this kind of juice. We live in a time where battery life can make or break your experience with a phone. Some of us have to use something that may not make our device look any more attractive, but that will get the job done and last us an entire day without having to charge. And then there are those that like to keep their devices slim or simply can’t stand the extra weight and thickness, and also have access to a charger throughout the day.

So tell us, are you an extended battery user? How long do you need a phone to last on a typical day?

    Where is the “No, my phone actually lasts throughout the day” Choice?

    So why can moto.make a 3300mah bat thats .7 mm thin andd…..no one else??

    • JohnPA2006

      Easy, because Motorola Engineers take the extra time to think things through on their hardware design.
      People are pissed at Moto for locked bootloaders, but not for deficient hardware design.

    For 100% of LTE phone owners, automatic YES.
    You need an extended battery.
    However 90% of the owners dont mind plugging in the charger every 6 to 8 hours.
    But if your away from a charging source, the extended is definite yes.

      That’s exactly it- if I were on the go all the time, the (lack of) battery on my GNex would be a huge issue, BUT… it never is.  I drive to work and work in an office… I can stay plugged in for 70% of the day.  

  • I *have* an extended battery.  But I only plug it in when I know that I’m not going to be near a plug for long stretches of time…like traveling.

    Droid Incredible 2, stock battery, 28 hours of usage on average, up to 36 hours.

      That phone has freakishly long battery life, my wife’s does about the same 36 hours.  She’s not a power user, but does use it throughout the day including Words With Friends which is a notorious battery hog.

    Though I have two standard batteries for my Droid2, and love how easy it is to swap them and be fully recharged upon boot.  The ability to have two batteries and swap them easily remains important to me so I hope this non-removable trend goes away fast
