    I have been considering getting the big fatty extended battery for my Pre. I use this device almost non-stop (i can kill between 25-32% an hour, easy) and am always plugging in. I've even pulled out the charger when I was hanging out at a bar w some friends. I take it off the charger at about 8:30am, and at about 45% usually by about noon. That's when I'm at work. It's a little worse when I'm not busy working, obviously.

    So, my questions are two:

    First, how much better is the battery life? Based on your experiences, and what I have mentioned of my use, do you think I could go out, crash at a friends house, and have enough juice to call a cab and make it home?

    Second, how fat is it? I have of course obsessively studied the pictures, but I still am kind of unable to tell what I'd think of it. I totally love the Pre's from factor and pocket-ability -will I be disappointed? I understand it will be a little bigger, but I'd just like to know if it's increased size was a shocker to others who have owned it.

    I realize all of the YMMV, personal taste, yada yada yada stuff, but I just wanted to get a feel for what other people are thinking. And yes, I have read all of the reviews. More than once (it gets slow at work...)

    Thanks a ton in advance!!

    I love it! It allows me to truly use my phone without worrying about running out of juice. It is about the size of the Treo 755.

    I have been a big fan of my 2600 so far... I use it mostly on long road trips or when on several back-to-back connecting flights (for music on Airplane mode, of course...)

    As for battery life, I get almost three times as much life out of the Seidio... I can go 2 days with moderate use, and it's hard to run it out in a day (i.e. even with 2-3 hours of 3d games waiting in airports, heavy email, 4-5 phone convos, gps all in the same day).

    Form factor is a trade-off, really. It does remove a lot of the smooth, eye-catching nature of the phone. But I find that, if I plan even moderate use of the phone for the day, I'll trade for the bulk. I can still fit the phone in my pants pocket, and not having to baby my Pre (especially in poor coverage areas) is worth the weight.

    My two cents

    Cool, thanks guys! I have a feeling that the life I get out of it will outweigh the bulk, but I don't know. I really do so love the svelte look of this device. But then, I do so love to use it too!

    Thanks again. I think I'll probably end up ordering one next week. And if I hate it, you'll see me trying to sell it on here!
