My point wasn't using so much input that I run a battery down. It has nothing to do with capacity, but consumption instead. Since there is a range provided by the moderator, its seems obvious, people will have in their possession, at times, a device they started out their day with, at the lower end of that range. Consequently, they might not elect to stand around waiting for the thing to charge, so they pick up the phone and leave with 10% charge left and go about their daily activities (As I mentioned, there are people that have outdoor activities..

Wallah....dead battery in no time and S.O.L if ya can't just throw a fresh one in and be fully charged in an instant.

Oh BTW, spare batteries are not too heavy or cumbersome to carry around in answer to your supposition. Not much larger or heavier than a few dollar bills folded in half.

And if I'm indoors, while I'm using my freshly installed fully charged device, I'm charging at the same time, two spare ones. The way I see it, the HTC DNA or Iphone user had better stay by that A/C outlet while the phone charges. After an hour or two, he can unplug and walk away with his device.

The contention that a non-removable battery is more convenient or attractive for the user is like saying a device like a BlackBury Storm rocks! Totally ludicrous!
