    Re: Small or BIG extended battery?

    I have the slim extended. Works great. Went out of town for the weekend last week and forgot the charger. I know stupid of me. But it lasted all weekend. It didn't help that I kept Jivetalk on the whole time and I was out of data coverage area. Totally started draining my battery before I knew it. I would have hated to know what would of happened if I had the OEM battery.

    The slim lasts at least 2 days for me. I still charge it everynight just incase I can't make it home to charge. Oh the single life...hehe

    That happened to me 2 months ago and I HAD the OEM battery in the Pearl. It was a good thing I took another phone with me LOL I ordered the extended slim battery 2 months ago. I ordered the bigger one 2 days after I got my Pearl.

    nah..**** that big battery..it thickens up the pearl,and the whole point of the pearl is to be nice and tiny.i jsut went on ebay and bought another normal battery with a new battery door,which was 9.00 shipped,so i always have another batt on hand the day that the battery that the pearl came with dies.

    Re: Small or BIG extended battery?

    I would personally not want the thicker battery. The slim extended increases the size of the pearl by 1mm. I would assume that will still allow it to fit in most cases designed for the pearl with the OEM battery. If that is the case that is the one that I would go with. Currently my useage I can get two days out of the OEM battery. I make about 400 minutes of calls a month. I do probably 10 e-mails a day from the pearl and a good bit of web browsing.

    If I travled out of my home town quite a bit I would have to have a couple of the slim extended batteries. It is amazing on how you come to rely on this thing being up all the time and ready to go. A dead battery would drive me nuts.

    So after all that rambling, I think the real question is how much the added size of the thick extended battery would annoy you. I love the small size of the pearl and would not want that extra bulk. I love being able to slip the thing in my pocket if I do not wnat the nerdy case hanging on my belt.
