I received my generic 1800 mAh batteries on monday and charged one overnight. Used it all day yesterday. It's not as good as I had hoped for, but it's better than I expected. They seem to hold a charge about as long as my OEM 1500 mAh battery. I was hoping for longer life but at least I have 3 batteries now instead of just 1. Overall, I think it was $10 well spent, assuming the batteries will still work after a year of use.

Agree with this. I got the OEM 1800 mAh, and love it. After almost two years on the original battery, it had seen better days.

The Anker 1800mAh batteries are straight though. I don't know how they compare to the OEM's, but two 1800mAh batteries WITH the AC USB adapter for $20... That's a good deal. I do, however, wanna try out the OEM's eventually, though.

I picked up the anker 1800mah. I'm very impressed. I stopped using my generic 2800mah fat battery. Easily lasts me through the day.

I've had poor luck with the generics. They run great at first but seem to really degrade quickly. Doesnt much make financial sense to buy two or three short lived generic batterys when you can spend the same on one OEM or quality brand name replacement.

After almost two months with my Anker batteries (And going on tours and such), Ankers have my seal of approval. On TW ROMs and at my rate of usage (I'm not much of a power user), I can easily get up to 20+ hours off a single charge (I think the most I've gotten was 1d 6h-8h, can't remember). Times have gotten rough for my recently so I can't afford to buy an OEM battery, but my two Ankers are more than well sufficient.

I got anker batteries recently.
It's worth spending 22 bucks for 2 batteries + charger

Anyone know if these will work with the Epic 4G?

If not what's the highest mAh battery I can use with the stock back over?
