Here is the best extended battery I have found for the Motorola Photon: Hyperion Motorola Photon 4G 3500mAh Extended Battery & Back Cover and here is a case that actually fits pretty well when the extended battery is installed! Solid Black Silicone Skin Gel Cover Case For Motorola Photon 4G I have found my battery life to be 2-3 days with fairly heavy use, whereas before the extended battery I was lucky to get a day’s use. 🙂 The price
2012.07.20 UPDATE: So far the battery life with the extended battery is simply phenomenal! I recently purchased a Hyperion extended battery for my Motorola Photon (about $18 on Amazon). Mugen is another popular brand of extended batteries, however, they seem to be $60+. So for now I am pleased to try out this lower cost battery and see how it performs After switching to an extended battery it seems that the Photon will report that the battery is running down fairly quickly
Yesterday I needed the latest Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket Android Phone USB driver, however, the Samsung site was down 🙁 In case you are in a similar situation, here is a download mirror of the latest Samsung driver: s2 link This download was tested with AVG anti-virus and installed on Windows 7. Below is the official Samsung driver site if it is currently working.

Today I received a notification from Motorola about the availability of an OTA (over the air) update for my Photon. Down below you can find the full details. But first, three important notes: If you have your Photon rooted, reports are that this update removes root. 🙁 There is no mention of a fix for the no-audio problem on Lapdock 500 etc. when using the phone as a WebTop 🙁 This does not update the Photon to ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) 🙁 Details
One of the beautiful things about Android devices is that they are so configurable. Case in point, adjusting the color balance on my phone. My Motorola Photon has a nice resolution screen (256 PPI) but I never found it comfortable to my eyes 🙁 Today I had my Photon setting next to my iPod touch and found that on the Photon screen whites were too white. It really looked less appealing and caused more eyestrain than the otherwise antiquated iPod touch screen.
2013 UPDATE with additional option: Here is a line of some wireless sensor products that are garnering rave reviews! They utilize a manager (ethernet tag manager) device which can communicate with low cost sensors then report the data to your device or the cloud, together it all forms a nice alternative to traditional Bluetooth sensors.
