I also have a VX-150 and the stock battery lasts a very long time for me.  Possibly you have a defective cell, or your battery isn't charging properly for some reason.

"Batteries America" sells a higher-capacity drop-in replacement, model FNB-V57x, which is 1650 mAH, for $39.95.

You might try:

She can rebuild your battery pack with Nickel Metal Hydride cells.  Greatly expands capacity.

Good luck and 73's

I've used W&W Manufacturing for most of my two-way batteries.  They have NiCd and NiMH packs in various mAH ratings for most brands and models of amateur and commercial portable radios.  I just got a hi-cap NiMH pack for my Kenwood TH-G71A and it comes with a very nice belt clip.  I also like their Master Charger 1a fast charger units.  The website is: www.wwassociates.com
