    nice story!! the super extended battery is ridiculously big. Im gonna wait until the batteries get smaller.

    Thank you! That was a really great set of photos.

    The sad thing is they could have added another 50% to the life of each of the extended batteries by extending the battery down to the bottom of the phone just above the antennas. Yes, they would have to have a custom lithium polymer battery made but it is a shame to waste so much space with dead air.

    yeah my main concern is the fact that y pre would no longer fit in the belt holster that I have. Dont wanna have to buy an extended batt and then have to shell out even more dough for a larger holster.

    You wouldn't want to cover up the antennas with batteries though.

    Sorry, the the prices are a joke right?

    $50, $90, and $130 ... the entire Pre is less than the largest extended battery!

    I kinda like the back of the 2800 Amzer better than the 2600 Seidio. I for one don't mind the shiny back, and the Amzer back curves more like the original back does. Too bad they want so much more money for it compared to the Seidio, then again, you get a nicer back and 200 mAh more, at least on paper. Also, it seems like they did a better job on the cut out for the flash. We ought to email the boys at Pre Thinking and make sure they also test how well the flash works with the two bigger covers, since we all know that the Seidio cover has issues with it. If the flash on the 2800 cover works as well as it does on the stock cover, then I am tempted to spend a few bucks more to the get Amzer. Between a working flash, a nicer back, and 200 more mAh, it's almost worth it!

    A great number of us only paid $99 for ours.

    Man with that 3800 I might need a handtruck for my Pre! I'm torn between the Seidio 1350 and Amzer 1400. An extra 1-2 hours of use will do for now plus I'll have the stock charged and waiting if needed.

    But what are you going to do when all those cool apps come out? All of a sudden you don't just do basic texting, talking and surfing anymore! You are using all sorts of apps, play games....that battery isn't going to make it through the day with the additional usage. That's my reasoning for getting a 2600 or 2800 battery. I can make it through the day just fine with normal usage, but once the Pre will be more than just my phone, all bets are off!

    While I can see why someone would want an extended battery I do not see the point of one that extends the back as it makes the touchstone pretty much useless...

    Good points but I figure by then there will be more batteries to choose from and they might come down a notch or two in price. Also remember, I will still have the extra battery if needed.

    I'll say this: depending on how you use your device, you may want as much "juice" as possible. Even the mighty iPod Touch, with 36 hrs of music playback capability, is humbled to just about an hour when playing any worthwhile game. So, if we're complaining about poor battery life on the Pre already, I can't imagine what games are going to do when they're introduced. The 3800 is just too much for my taste, but I believe I'll be looking at the 2800 down the road.

    Not as of now. The 2600 is made by Seidio and they have said on this forum (actually the Pre accessories forum) that they are currently working an a back for the 2600 that is touchstone compatible.

    Amzer just said that the current back is not touchstone compatible. I haven't heard anything about them mentioning that they are working on a touchstone compatible back.
