Battery Drain(Seidio "Extended Battery"

Does anyone else have the Seidio "Extended Battery"? The one that claim 10% more battery life? It was working fine at first, but now I'm finding that my phone battery drains VERY quickly and takes FOREVER to charge. I added a GPS device recently, but I rarely use it. Does adding Bluetooth devices, even if they are not in use, drain battery? Or does anyone know if the seidio battery is just crap?

Did you disable bluetooth when it's not in use? It still drains quite a bit just being on.

No problem here with the Seidio battery - not a huge difference, but noticeable and consistent.

Perhaps you got a bad one. Do you have same problem with std. battery?

I have no issues either with mine... it is clearly better than the stock battery if you ask me. But no issues either way.

i did this with one of my old batteries, keep the batt in a cold area for like 10 min, after that get the slowest charger hat you have and charge the batt. i did that with my 6700 and it worked fine after that, also i always use a slow charger (even slower than usb) when i sleep, my btt lasts lik 4hrs being on the net, and if i were to constatly stream music about 2.5 hrs to 3 hrs

Well, it seems to have gone away. Maybe it just needed to be broken in?

maybe it will take a few charge cycles to break in. I used to have a 3200mah seido battery in my treo and after about 4 full charges the thing would last almost 12 hours on a charge.
