    Or are there any other people that have one? Like the battery on this think blows horribly. The seidio post about the slim extended battery has reached 30+ pages.. with no news whatsoever...
    Are there alternatives?

    if you go on the seido page.. it has the extended batteries pictured as coming soon..

    so if thats the responce your looking for


    the batteries have been bad on most blackberries of all time.. the problem is this thing has a crazy screen which makes it even worse..

    I would expect that there will be quite a few available but people are getting to impatient..

    the phone hasn't even been out a month

    its supposed to be 1600mAh up from 1400mAh on the original bbstorm battery.


    is that 15% increase really worth it? Like an extra 1.5hr on a avg 10 hour day away from home. Are these "High quality Japanese cells" better under stress on battery?

    just buy a second battery.......the extended battery will cost more than the standard battery, but if you have 2 batteries they will last much longer.

    I'm a bit disappointed that the Seidio extended battery only has 15% more capacity than the OEM. I was hoping for 30% like when I had my 8130.

    I'm just carrying an extra battery in my pouch. I won't spend $$ on an extended battery unless it's a significant increase.
    What I'm holding out for is a 2000 to 2200 mAh battery. That will obviously require a replacement back cover with a bump in it, but heck - the Storm is so slim who cares about a bump on the backside?
    I am a heavy multimedia user, so battery life is crucial.

    Turn backlight to 10% and screen turn off in 10 seconds. Also don't install Weatherbug. I have notice an incredible increase in battery life.
