could have tried that i guess but if the gold contacts aren't touching then it isn't going to charge anyway i tried them in a charger that i know works from an earlier purchase and that indicated full charged but its not a big deal i have four batteries already so its not the end of the earth

I bought two anker batteries and I can say they are better than stock, perhaps not amazingly better but better.

Bought it and my battery life is very good now, I can actually power use my phone without worried about battery. I played fruit ninja and played music via 3g with the speakers for more than an hour and loss like 15% percent battery. Went to bed with the battery at 12% and when I woke up it was at 8%. I can't get you any technical specs but the battery is alot better than stock, and for the price you can't go wrong.

My 2 inspires are a year old now so I figure that they could use fresh batterys.
I did this deal last night. Seems to be at least as good as sotck, and a good price.

Awesome, thanks for the review, I've been meaning to get some spares for camping but haven't started checking out which ones are worth it yet.

+1 defiantly what's juicing my phone as we speak.

Interesting...
I had the same problem someone else had with the battery that I charged first using the wall charger showing 0% when I tried to use it.

The battery that I first put into my phone charged fully in the phone and is showing 1578mah with no issues and I got nearly 23 hours of charge off of that one with moderate use and still have 26% left over, but decided to change out for the fresh one before going to work.

However, once I booted up and it said 0% and shut down, I plugged in the charge cable to the phone and it is now showing full like the other. We'll see if it magically drains in 10 seconds, but I think it'll be just fine. As an aside, I still have Juice Defender running at the most basic setting.

I'm definitely digging the new batteries, as the original one for the phone was definitely old and I was struggling with harsh settings in Juice Defender to get more than 16 hours out of it.

Ok, so apparently the charger is charging the batteries, but the phone reports them at 0% until the charger is plugged in, as it's happened twice now. Should I contact the seller and find out if I have a defective wall charger?

The 1600mah batteries aren't available anymore from what I see. Their all listing as 1350mah and are $20 for 2 batteries and the charger. Think it's worth it? Or does anyone know where to find the 1600's?

I got a single 1600mAh Anker battery from Amazon, cost was $9, it does last
a little longer than stock, but not much, also Battery Monitor Widget Pro
measures the battery at 1295mAh.

I guess at $9 thats not to bad, but its no 1600mAh battery.

I think they stopped selling the 1600/1500 mAh versions because they weren't that. 1350 is probably a more realistic value. Batteries are most likely the same battery with just a different label.
