HTC Thunderbolt battery upgrade, $49.99 well spent?

Now that the HTC Thunderbolt has been out for a good few days, we want to know your immediate thoughts on it. We recently asked you about the types of 4G LTE speeds you were getting on the handset, but now we want to know what your battery life is like.

As most of you will know, the handset came in for a considerable amount of criticism over fears that battery life was poor, and having had a chance to see this aspect up close at hand – would you agree that the battery life is unacceptable?

Luckily, there is an alternative option if you are getting poor battery life, but it comes at a price at $49.99 to upgrade the battery to a 2750mAh powered one. This will offer almost double the battery power that you’d usually get on the shipped 1400mAh one, and we’re interested to know who has already paid $50 for one.

We know a lot of you are pretty disappointed with the battery life, we’ve even heard in some instances that the handset only offers a dismal four hours of usage. With this in mind, it seems like this $50 extra battery is essential if you want to make the most out of the handset. Verizon obviously has said very little about the battery life issues, but it perhaps seems a little unfair to charge customers $50 for a decent battery that should have been on the handset in the first place.

What are your thoughts on this? Have you bought the $50 battery for the HTC Thunderbolt?
