Took it off it's first full charge at 8am this morning (standard battery), have had a bit of a play with Media Player and Bluetooth A2DP (only a bit mind), and battery is at 55%.

That is NOT good ;)

T'was ever the way with most (every) other Samsung I've had. There's a reason they give you 2 batteries and it isn't out of the kindness of their heart...

I'm growing to love the extended battery even if it doesn't look too great at least it lasts a reasonable amount of time.

Another user suggests a standard samsung car charger will work :-)

I'm nearly always near a USB port, so I can charge that way, but that's not the point...

And the extended battery is UGGGGGGGLEEEEEEEE! ;)

Oh dear. Sounds like the Samsung i300's achilles heel is going to be a terminal flaw. No Smartphone device will survive in todays market with battery life that bad ;)

In need of a major rom upgrade with miraculous power saving techniques or yet another bigger battery, with perhaps a better design to avoid too much more bulk?
Either way the 1700mah ext battery doesnt do many wonders, a day of listening and im out for the count ;)
