For my HTC Incredible, I purchased and received late yesterday, the Seidio 3500mAh Extended Battery from Amazon.com. ($49.99)
Charged it as recommended, 8 hours. (overnight)
Put it into action 6:30am this morning. I've been using it all day today; heavy use. It is barely down to about 90%.
The next several days and a few re-charges will paint the real world picture.
So far, as expected, it exceeds the standard 1300mAh battery and I have no desire to go back to that.
Yes, there's a little more bulk and sight increase in weight with the Extended Battery but the performance should mute those issues. The Extended Battery comes with replacement rear cover (Black) which I find to be very nice. Easy to grip.

Does anyone else use the Sei...

The phone is light as a feather anyway.. so extra weight might be a GOOD thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let us know how it works out for daily usage..

Menno, I fully agree. It is a GOOD thing. The extra weight is a very nice positive.

I am at 48 hours (2 full days) as of 6:30am this morning and the remaining battery level indicates 70%!

Very pleased! Maybe I will get four days out of this charge.

One issue remains: I had the Body Glove Case with the Incredible which worked perfectly with the OEM Battery. Now, of course it will not fit because of the increased Extended Battery size. Has anyone cut out an area on the rear of the Body Glove case to accommodate the Extended Battery? Any success doing so? I did not find a Body Glove case which accommodates the Extended Battery. The Body Glove case does afford protection and I miss that.

Today, 7-17-2010. the report is:
At 72 hours (3 full days). The extended battery indicates 50% remaining.

Yesterday, the cell phone use was not too heavy.

As to cutting the old Body Glove case to accommodate the Extended Battery; not a good idea.
I find on the Seidio Web Site that they are developing a case for the Incredible that will accommodate the Extended Battery. That should work.

Today, 7-18-2010, 6:30am Day #4 (96 hours.) The battery indicated 30% charged and the Battery Level Bar is colored "Yellow".

Battery Level Bar has "marks" at 10% increments.

Bar is colored "Green" above 30%.

At 7-18-2010, 6:00pm Day #4.5 (107 hours.)
The Battery indicated 20% charged and the Battery Level Bar is colored "Red".
A Warning Message also appeared saying Battery is @ 14% and needs to go on the charger.

Testing is now completed.
