I have always wondered why more people do not do this. I think you are the first person I saw that mentioned spare phone batteries.

I switched from vintage flip phone to smart phone a year ago, I bought a couple spare batteries for it at that time planning to do what you do. But with a dynohub and with the limited cell coverage where I go, I have not needed to use one of the spare batteries yet. I also leave it in airplane mode most of the time. And I only use the data plan for weather forecasts, thus very little screen time.

I probably would have been using the spare phone batteries if I did not have a dynohub.
