@28% with extended battery after 19 hours.
It seems that battery drains at about 1.5% or less in regular Standby Mode.
Well the issue of my phone not shutting OFF is a hardware issue... I installed Miri ROM v11 and Energy ROM and got the same issue (The HTC Quick screen to Turn off, select Vibrate, etc keeps poping up.. If I select Turn off.. It starts to turn off the device, but comes right back off.. If I hit the end button to go in suspend mode, I have to hit the button twice... Then when I go back into the phone, the HTC Quick screen comes up..)... So looks like I'm going to have to send it back for repairs (that really sucks...)... Only had phone for 5 months.. Never dropped the phone or anything?????
On a side note.. I like the Energy ROM (WM6.5.5)... It seems to be working well so far... I like the look of the WM6.5.5 OS... The ROM is fast and smooth... Just really started to test it out... So far so good... Battery life seems to be okay so far... Gives you the standard battery life for the HD2... I like the dual clock look... The only downside to this ROM is that the cookie app will not work with it... If you install the cookie app, you lose the Energy ROM features... Some apps may not work with is ROM.. So far the apps I've installed works (PI9, Pocketbible, s2u2, touch weather, spb shell, etc..).. So you have to try and install the app's to see what works...
Also ordered a custom case from ebay ($59 US).. Email said it shipped yesterday... Should recieve next week... Will post results of case??? Here's the link for the case:
I downloaded and prompted the Arabic language support for the LEO over at the hTC website but I get a pop up that says not compatible..!? Please help me..
12pm @ 75%
2pm @ 64%
difference = 11%
11% - 5% (30min music) = 6% for 1.5h in Wifi Standby
Average around 4% to 5% drain per hour in Wifi (awake) Standby Mode.
30 minutes of play time with Slacker Radio with screen off over Wifi at 50% volume takes 5% out of the extended battery.
Hehe... Shy Shy by EDX is playing in Slacker Radio Trance.
Still at 69%.

Yes, pretty impressive numbers with the extended battery for now.
I will keep you guys updated today when battery reach the red zone.
Stock battery is good for 9 hours (safe: with moderate usage), and you will start sweating for being in the red zone.
Plus, I did not have enough confidence putting the stock battery in the Wifi standby mode for testing.
So, so far the preliminary result of the 2400mAh battery is putting out some good result.

That is need to know in your report.
Ok, preliminary result of the ebay 2400mAh battery.
7am to 12pm. 75% battery left with light usage as follow:
3:30h of Wifi in standby mode
1:30h in regular standby mode
Total 5 hours.
20 minutes playing loud Trance music at 100% volume with Wifi connection.
Within the 20 minutes of playing the music, 10 minutes surfing the internet.
5 minutes playing video music. Just for testing.
5 minutes browsing pictures.
Made 1 call for 1 minute.
For the rest of the day, I plan on leaving Wifi on in standby mode. I may leave it a rest in regular standby time for 1 hour to justify this test as a moderate use.
Woohoo. This fone is awesome with Slacker Radio playing Trance music while surfing the web & typing this message.
No lag. Stable, and still plenty of juice w/ all the tweaks. N connection unleashed.
Forget about WP7.
Ok, I have just found out why the plastic cover of the extended battery isn't fitting well in the US HD2.
At first, I was having some problem pressing the volume keys. I have found that the opening in the plastic cover is a tad smaller than the stock one (by about 0.5mm).
Lucky it was a plastic cover. I have just trimmed it a little bit, and now it fit better. Volume buttons work now.
The fit of the extended cover now looks better with some modification, but it is still average with really thin gaps on the sides. Hence, it is not a perfect fit.
Man! (or woman)
I cannot imagine how many mistakes I have made, and sorry about it (e.g. faith instead of fate, bottom vs button, can vs get, and etc...).
Sorry again, and do the adjustments as judged necessary. I am using my other PC because my other (partner/wife) is taking control of my main PC. My old wireless s*cks big time.

High Tech, 08 Apr 2010What type of casing will you need for it, due to extended battery?????Well. In my old WinMo phone (i.e. Omnia i900), I had an extended battery, but it did not have any case for it. There is still no case for it, and the phone is smaller than the HD2.
The HD2 will share the same faith if I plan to keep using the extended battery.
I have tried the US stock gel case with the extended battery, and of course I knew the answer to that before I had even tried it.
I just wanted to see if I can custom made a case for it. The answer is as clear as before!!!
Nah...Nope...uh...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!. Definitely no case with an extended battery.

For the most part, I got the HD2 for the US T-mobile 3G, the 1GHz, the screen size, and HTC of course.
Wifi is a necessity to cut cost on data plan provided by your phone service provider.
So imagine my reaction when a T-mobile service rep told me that an unlimited data plan was needed with a contract for this phone.
My eyeballs were in the 2 and 10 o'clock (switching back and forth constantly: like a CPU on the verge of freezing with overheat).
My response and solution was clear. $500 cash, and see you later.
All I have to say is T-mobile 3G is awesome (compared with Edge) in Chicago for the most part. If 3G connection fails, Edge catches up.
