Are you a fan of interchangable batteries or rather have it built in?

It definately saves time once your batter is busted.

Are you a fan of the interchangable batteries or not?

Im not sure since i have a hard enough time charging the battery im using let along the backup battery. I couldnt live without a car charger. I definately need a usb charger option since im always around a computer or usb port.

@Droid Motorola,
I can't imagine preferring a non replaceable battery. I've had iPods in the best and when the battery died, you were screwed. Much easier if you can just open the back and replace the battery. What advantage is there in a non replaceable battery?

@mikecitron,
I had the experience of dropping my LG Dare in the toilet. I immediately took the back off and removed the battery, to keep the electronics from getting fried. I blew the thing out with compressed air (with the back OFF). I then dried it over a couple of nights with a dessicant in a big zip-lock bag. Again, the back was off, the battery out. Everything dried out perfectly, and the phone is as good as new.

Unless it was built to be waterproof, a phone (such as an iPhone) with a permanently sealed-in battery is NOT waterproof, and WILL fry its electronics - buh-bye iPhone!

@rdearth53,
I'd hate to have to give into battery replacement extortion prices or have to void my warranty and whip out the soldering iron.

After trying the spare battery swap startegy with my RAZR, I've given up on cradle chargers. For the Dare I only charge in the phone. I now only trust the phone electronics to not dramatically shorten battery life.

Charging my Dare battery in the phone only, I still, after a year, get more than a week use from a couple hour charge.
