Verizon slashes the price of the HTC ThunderBolt battery to $19.99
Considered to be the bane for a lot of HTC ThunderBolt owners, battery life has never been one of the strong points for this particular 4G LTE equipped handset, but at least there are some alternatives to get you by throughout the day.

Of course, you can constantly juice the handset whenever you have some free time, however, you can instead pick up a replacement battery for cheap. Verizon is currently selling the official OEM battery replacement for the HTC ThunderBolt at the decent cost of $19.99, which is half the cost from its original $39.99 pricing. Although it shows that it’s priced at $39.99, you simply need it add it to your cart in order to get it down to $19.99.

Indeed nice, it’s unfortunately sold out as we speak, but we’re hoping to see it become available once again. And if you want to test out your luck, you can try and see if your local Verizon store would be willing to price match the offering on their web site – it never hurts to try, you know?

they are slashing all the prices on htc thunderbolt accessories this morning when i went there. looks like it may be the inevitable discontinuation for this phone. it is a nice phone, no doubt, but the other 4G LTE phones are not doing any better on battery life. **I called in yesterday and talked to verizon about my battery being so LOUSY on my LG revolution, and simply asked if there was something i could do, and they said we will send you the extended battery for free." i didnt even ask for that. they just offered it up. (I declined, and decided on a different avenue all together)
