I just got the extended battery for my 7520 (from SmartPhoneDepot - EXCELLENT price and amazingly quick service, thanks rcg!!). Charged it up and started using it and haven't looked back. So far this week, it is far superior to the standard batt - hard to exactly quantify, since usage varies, but:
I turned the 7520 on on Wednesday at about 6:30AM, specifically haven't turned it off yet, and here on Friday at 11:30AM I have two "bars" of battery left (Status shows battery at 20% right now). I made about 20 calls over this period, of short duration (under 5 mins. per), received 58 emails, and sent about 20 replies. Logged into Ramble a few time for AIM checks (not continuous). So, average to light use, for me.
Before I got the extended batt, my battery would be dead by the end of every day - I had to use the car cord on the way home. With the extended, it just keeps going, and going, and...
Oh, P.S. - My 7520 goes into the clip with the magent for screen sleep whenever it's on my hip, but on my desk, I have been leaving it in the desk stand, screen on, without the USB cable attached.
P. P. S. - My 7520 with the extended batt actually DOES fit into the desktop stand, even though it's not supposed to. I put the bottom edge of the unit on the desk stand lip, and gently roll the 7520 back straight onto the stand until it "clicks" into position on the studs. Works great - no force required!
