While this isn't the prettiest extended pack out there its more then adaquate. What does the iphone have for this option?, other then sending in your phone for a $100 stock battery replacement. Honestly though if you need an extended pack you should of bought at TP2 ot TILT2 and gotten a 4500mah pack. HD2 is an iphone killer so it has to be as thin as the iphone, which it is. Also don't forget the HD2 makes the iphones look like RAZR's. They even added capasative touch so the touch screen is the same as the iphone now. Having owned both you should really take this baby for a test drive. But just buy 2 or 3 packs if you need em, hell there only like $4.

This is the most unprofessional looking phone option, and one really ugly looking personal phone attachement. Kick stands are for bikes, not cel phones. HTC really needs to rethink this one.

Yes, that is an ugly setup, reminiscent of cellphones from 10 years ago with the extended battery. It's amazing how Apple even fits a battery into their devices, being so thin and all...!

This comments is for HTC R&D and Marketing department. First of all I fail to understand the logic of providing less capacity battery on such a huge screen where power requirment is more then normal. Either they want to make extra money by wrongs means or their R&D department not able to properly guage the battery requirment with such a big admirable screen. The message I want to communicate to all users across world that most technology companies are basicaly want to make money by inforcing customer and HTC is on of them. I was sincerly planning to buy HD2 but now i don't want to engage myself with such type of company adopting this attitude to make money from its customers using wrong means. Let me clarify to all users there is no technological constraint to give high capacity battery, its only their financial stratergy to make extra mony by inforcement.

Who would have imagined that they could make a battery that lasts twice as long but is four times the size...?

on a personal experience i can tell you that this will be very handy!

on my HD2 i watch movies when i go and return from work. while on the internet i listen to music and while at work i play a game (MMOPG) tribal wars which i need to be online all the time so i spend my battery in 9h.

iif this battery lasts for at least 16h with the kind of use that i give to the phone i will be very happy!!! :D

They need to offer the kickstand as an accesory on a normal battery back, so users have the option of keeping a thin battery and also having a kickstand!!

Why not just buy a second normal size battery and swap them when needed?
