Sure no problem. It should be here Thursday and I actually have a event for my gf's jewelry biz this weekend that I will likely need it for and I can use as an excellent test.

Ok sorry thought I posted my review yesterday but for whatever reason it didnt post

So my initial impressions are really good. The reality is that I don't think there is going to be too much that is terribly different with most of these. I'm sure all of them (at least the ones with good reviews) are pretty good and ultimately it comes down to personal preference. The main things I like better than my old one are the power button, charger port and obviously the extended battery capacity. The power button on this one is a little less prone to accidental presses and powering on in my bag/pocket, this wasn't a huge problem on my old one but it seems like it will now be a non-issue. The biggest advantage is that it uses a micro usb port to charge the extended battery so i can use the same cable for my phone and charging the device while on the road. It seemed to charge SLIGHTLY faster but nothing too significant. The little flash light is cool but a complete non factor for me. I'd also say the build quality of both the battery and cables is better than my original battery. I highly recommend one of these batteries, just find the one that is best for you!

Yeah it was partially charged. It had all lights lit up initially but I lost a bar or so quickly. But yeah it had a good amount of juice

Re: Battery solution?

Has anyone looked at the monoprice units? Specifically, the
For only $11.48 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Micro USB Backup Battery Pack for Smart Phones, Cell Phones and Cameras (2800mAh) - Black (REV. 2.0) | Back Up External Battery and Charger

Seems like this (version 2.0) unit is getting great reviews. Smaller and more portable than the bigger units (but less charge). Seems like something you could pocket if you're planning on being away from a charger for awhile. One feature I like is you don't need any extra cables. It charges from the same microusb that you'd use to charge your phone, and it looks like you could just charge through (charge your phone connected to the battery connected to the wall charger).

Not a user, just an interested customer.

The long term question is more about what happens when the internal battery starts to lose capacity. An "easy" swap, or major brain surgery...

Interesting. The one down side I see is that this thing plugs directly into the phone itself, so you'd have this thing protruding from the side of your phone (at least on the LTEvo). I'm using my charger I posted above now as I travel for the holiday weekend and its been great being able to throw it in my cargo pocket with the cord running to my phone while at the airport and flying. And now relaxing on the beach charging my phone and my girlfriends simultaneously. But everyone has different needs and this is a bit cheaper
