    Extended battery owners..has your battery life gone down?

    I've been on my moto extended battery for a few weeks now and i feel like I'm back to my X lasting barely a whole day again with just light usage throughout the day. It's similar to when I was on the stock battery..anyone else experience this too?

    I have good and bad days. Not sure what causes it but I am not disappointed with it yet.

    I use my DX heavily for my 10 hr work shifts. MP3 player on for the duration, and heavy texting and browsing. I found that after a week or so of usage, the battery actually lasted a little longer than it did at first.

    I have it off of the charger for 12 to 14 hrs and I get home with 30% left.

    Had the extended battery when it first came out. Really only got as much life out of it as the regular battery with not a ton of usage throughout the day. And no, I didn't have a ton of blur and notifications running to kill the battery. So I returned it and got the car dock instead. I figured since I have a charger in my house, car, and desk at work, a $50 extended battery that doesn't extend isn't worth it.

    If I hadn't gotten it discounted I would return it. I'm really not seeing that much better life out of it than the stock. On light days with my stock battery I was putting it on the charger after 15 hours with about 40%-50% left. Heavy days it was on the charger after 15 hours with about 20% left. Extended has shown the same behavior so far. It's tough to say though because day to day that can change. And apps I'm using today might be bigger battery hogs than apps I was using yesterday. It's a toss up.
