Fommy Product Review:
The Storm, being a full touch screen device, has one big problem shared with most other similar devices: battery life. It clocks in at 6 hours of talk time and 15 days standby at the base; but with the power consumption required by most other applications and features you may find yourself going through a batter in half that time, which is very inconvenient for those of us who do not always keep our charger handy. But if you dont mind adding a bit of depth to your phone, an extended battery can be a great solution.
This extended battery clocks in at 2300 mAh or roughly 1.6 times the battery life of the standard model, this theoretically extends talk time to 9.6 hours and standby to 24 days (regardless of what the manufactuers say, battery life is ultimately dependent upon how much the user uses all the features). This is a fairly significant increase, but frequent users may still find themselves charging frequently, but it should reduce the amount of times they need to charge over the long run significantly. For standard users who dont use their device all day, they may now be able to go a couple of days inbetween charges.
The convenience does come at a price though, the battery is larger than its predecessor and requires a replacment door, which is provided with the battery. Aside from making your phone about a quarter of an inch thicker and a tad heavier, the door doesnt look as nice as its predecessor and is missing both logos. But if you dont mind sacrificing some aesthetics and the standard size cases, this is a great choice for significantly extending your Storms battery life.
