Anyone used one for their V1 phone?

I'm not sure when it will be out for the 3G. It's a bit pricey, but has a number of advantages I think. It's a BIG battery - 1800 mAh. It looks pretty sleek and well designed, and it seems to integrate well with the phone. It looks like it about doubles the thickness (which would make the whole thing about the same size as a typical crackberry lol), but that's better than the ones that make it much longer - this would still fit in your pocket. Also, it seems this would be much more physically robust for use than the 'extension' type batteries.

Hmmmm, I'm talking myself into it ;-)

Oh, it looks like late September :-(

$99.95? That's pretty damned steep.

On the plus side, the form factor is very nice.

On the negative side, it appears to use mini-USB to charge - so yet another cable.

On the whole, I think I'll pass... For emergency charging, I'll stick with my iGo 4-AA charger, warts and all, for 1/3 the price.
