Htc Mogul Extended Battery

Anyone have any experience with the extended batteries? I was wondering how much weight and thickness were added by the extended batteries.

I was looking on ebay and saw some OEM "2100 mAh Li-Ion" batteries and replacement back-covers. Looks like there are some non-OEM 2400 mAh batteries, and even one option for a 3600 mAh battery (and corresponding replacent back-cover).

My understanding is that the original battery is 1500 mAh, so 2100 mAh give a bit longer life. The 3600 mAh would be nice if doesn't double the thickness of your phone.

It does add to the thickness of the phone, it doesn't fit in the original case anymore. But, it doesn't take long to get used to it, especially after talking for 2 hours, using slingbox, streaming a podcast, using calender, contacts and still having 60% battery life left after being off the charger from 5a to 9p At least, I got over the thickness quick-

the 2100mah battery and door fits fine in the oem case for the ppc-6700 with some room to spare so the 3600mah may fit in 6700 case.

I received the OEM 2100ma battery yesterday and it was fully charged by 6pm. With some messaging, several phone calls and my wife playing Bejeweled for a couple of hours with the sound on "testing" it for me, it's sitting at 60% 29 hours later. The original battery would have been dead a long time ago.

Looks like it will be worth testing out at least the 2100mAh battery, especially for the ebay prices (i.e., $20-$25 on the cheap end).

The 3600 mAh was over $50, so I may hold off on that one. The seller indicated that it would add 1/4 inch to the thickness of the 6800.

I'm selling my brand new HTC 2100mAh extended battery. It's to thick for my testing and just want to let someone else get some extended enjoyment from it. Please e-mail at Josedogg54@cox.net for more information on Prices and payments.

I can't speak specifically for the Mogul as I don't have mine anymore, but I went from the Treo 755p 1600mAh battery to the seidio 3600mAh battery and the battery life increase is huge.

However, the 755p and Mogul form factor are completely different. The size increase is very easy to get used to on the 755p and it makes practically no difference (also 755p is designed for one handed use). The Mogul is not, so I'm not sure if it's as easy to get used to.
