does anyone here uses an extended battery for the dell streak and has it been detected and reported properly,
yup I've been using the extended battery or a few months now. But I do not use the Android app that comes with the battery to mange the power profiles.
Normally after reaching the Orange bar or red bar my phone suddenly goes to a battery sign with a red (x) in the middle and then if you give a reboot it boots back on with 80% of the battery juice again as if you released a reserve.
But frankly you can not trust the battery gauge at all with the extended battery as I have had amazing uptime with the extended battery even having clumsy battery juice levels. I would say my Streak will run at full use (4 hours calling, running skype all day, facebook messaging and some youtube) for abt 15 - 20 hours on extended battery but it is always a practice of mine to wipe the battery memory time to time from boot menu.
Happy New year 2012 GUYz!!!
Hope to see the ICS rolling out on My Streak 5...
