    I'm ordering my other accessories on Ebay, and I can't decide whether to get a spare battery or not.

    I didn't use one on my 600, so I don't see myself needing one on the 650. We'll see though
    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon, when thunder and lightning fills the sky, When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler, And hopes are lost friends, When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard-charging linebackers, And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard-charging running backs ... You must remember that the Rattlers will... Strike, Strike, and Strike again.

    I'm purchasing one since the battery for the 600 was not reliable enough. Not sure how long the 650's will last being that it has a higher resolution screen, and it doesnt hurt having a back-up.

    I wear down my treo battery every day...by late afternoon, it needs a charge.

    The extra battery will be a godsend.

    He's probably paying $5-10 for that thing from China. He's probably buying thousands at a time. Those little "pocket rocket" scooter things that you are seeing everywhere. Those are purchased from China for between $100 and $200 each. They sell for $500 and up usually.

    Is this an OEM one? Hopefully not one of those exploding ones.

    Already ordered from Dan (along with a car charger), and it will be here before the Treo 650 (on "Back Order" at PalmOne). At least I can put it on my desk and lust for the rest of the phone.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    I am ordering today from Dan's, along with the car charger. When it comes I will put it with the 256MB SD card I ordered 3 months ago. I like to be prepared. Now if I could just decide on a case/clip/pouch, I'd be in great shape (I know, there are a bunch of threads out there on that subject - TMI)

    Isn't the 650 supposed to have better battery life than the 600?

    Just got my extra battery and the car charger from Dan's. Also included was a cell antenna and a safe guard. Is everyone just tossing these into the trash? I don't think I have heard one good comment about the antenna and safe guard.

    If you put them in the trash, someone might dig them out and use them or sell them on eBay... Your only option is to burn them... Make sure they will never be used!

    I found one two days ago outside of a dumpster and like a moth to the flame it is strapped to my 650 I now can get reception from somewhere in space. I spoke with a guy named something like Leroy Chiao but couldn't understand all of his words as he had bit of an accent. Anybody know who that is?????
