extra weight of an extended battery, then why not? Make sure it's an OEM battery, otherwise it may not live up to its expectations. The other approach would be to buy another standard battery and carry it with you. Pros and cons of both approaches.

Seidio 3500mAh is good life battery but that's heavyweight. I don't use it, because I found same info how to save battery life.
1. If u don't use WiFi turnoff it. again if u don't have 4G in your area turnoff and GPS
2. Download juiceDefend from market It's free. It's always unable on your notification.
Good luck

I can only imagine

What would happen if I took your advice and used my honking big battery.

===> One big upside to the larger battery is that it corrects a small design flaw in the Evo 4G. When you set the phone down, the camera lens edge touches the surface. With the big battery, it's now recessed.

There are lots of ways to set-up your phone so it survives longer with the standard battery.

We had a Droid X run for almost 2 days, with constant use off of one charge.

Either way, the batteries and covers they are releasing are only getting better.

But as Bob said the larger battery does help the EVO's sit much better.
