    ZTE Score



    I've actually had my phone last me two days lately, but all I did on it was read a book. About 4-5hrs each day. 3G just being on will eat your battery pretty fast let alone using it. There's lots of articles on saving battery power and every little adjustment counts.

    I'm enjoying the extended battery purchased for my ZTE score. i get around 3X the normal life out of it. have had it for 3 weeks. charging time is a little longer.

    I've been using extended batteries for a while now. they work much much better then the regular batteries, just have to be careful sometimes, as if they're moved just barely out of place your phone will reboot, doesn't happen very often, and the extra battery life is very much worth it. i went from having 3g off and my phone dying within a day to having 3g on all day and it lasting 2 days. lol. plus it gives you an extra battery to carry around so if your phone does die you'll have a spare. so those 2 days turn into 3-5 days.

    I am using the huawei mercury/glory btw though, but i've had other phones with the external batteries on them.

    O.K....I received my extended battery yesterday (it took 2 weeks to get from China),...installed it to my phone and charged it (took about 40 minutes to fully charge),...used my phone all day (surfing,youtube,etc), and didn't need to charge it all day,..it still has about 3/4 charge on it,...so far so good,...Makes the phone fatter (as shown in pic)100_1049%5B1%5D.jpg ,..I'm afraid to drop it,...doesn't have a phone case,...

    i use the 2600mAh battery from ontrion. with right settings my phone runs a week easy without charging. however thats not using it at all. if i make phone calls or surf the web it will last 2-3 days, if i play a game it might last 5 hours. it just depends on what you do i guess. i will say the fatter back with the extended battery sucks as i have yet to find a case that will fit it so i worry about dropping it. it's not a bad investment though. especially if you don't want to charge your phone multiple times a day.
