which one will live longer as in year or more ?


I heard that the Mugen and others lose the ability to hold charge faster than the stock ones ?

I bought a third party one off ebay and it stopped holding charge in about 4 month.

Although the mAh has high numbers on these batteries, they don't make a difference in usage time with the original htc batteries imo.

If you are into DIY, I would recommend using the Sensation battery mod. If you want a second battery, not as replacement, it is always better to use stock battery for longer lasting.

Read through the Mugen threads on this forum (and other devices' accessories forums).

I think the feedback is generally positive.

After 1 year, my OEM battery was OK, but far from its original capacity (subjective, but still). So any "good" phone battery will degrade over time, it's a very punishing environment.

I don't know how the Mugen will be after 1 year - I hope it's OK, since I bought one 2 months ago. The 1500mAh seems real, and it's started well for me.

I think the Mugen is actually cheaper than a replacement HTC battery (don't even think about the ebay rip-offs), so since they are well constructed I think it makes sense to buy one of theirs.

Also consider a battery pack, you can get a good (NewTrent) 5000mAh pack for 25 or so off Amazon. They are even made with a 11000mAh capacity...

Stock battery is the best option. Mugen has not that much more capacity, and is 4 times more expensive.

I replaced my old one by 1 year, and keep the old one for back-up.

How much is a stock battery for you???

I bought the Mugen one for 32, I think it was, free shipping.

In HTC's online store their battery is on sale at 40. Could be cheaper elsewhere, but I really doubt you'll find one for 8.

They are for sale for around 10 on Ebay. Bought mine here in The Netherlands for 13...

That is much cheaper then the Mugen, I'm not paying triple for maybe a few Mah more.

And all original items in the HTC shop are way overpriced;p

Beware of most of those cheap original batteries. Although original, they are refurbished items. So they are used items, usually from returned phones, or dead phones, or whatever. So they're not new.

Sometimes, mostly not. Most of them are brand new, and if not the seller attents you on this.

Unfortunately I made both experience on ebay. It seems like luck which one you get.

My stock battery was really down after one and a half year usage. It didn't reach a whole day anymore... But I bought a new stock version.
