I have heard that best way to avoid "fake" is to neglect ebay or amazon and to scout for branded batteries - anker, mugen, seidio. I use mugen and advise you too, they may seem costy but they are actually twice cheaper. Not only the batteries last longer during the day, but also in general they last longer in terms of life cycle of the battery. Usually batteries have maximum 100 recharges and then start to day (like one year of use), while branded aftermarket batteries like mugen for instance can be recharged 400 times. Do not do ebay..

I bought extra battery from htc care. Visit your nearest htc service centre and give order new battery.

I bought a golden battery on ebay ( 2430mha and same size as stock ).

I cannot see any improvement since it lasts as long as the original one ( 1300mha ).

Simply buy an Andida which costs about $8 shipped WorldWide from Obbostore or available from some online store & local mobile shops.
Gold batteries are complete fake junk & Mugen over priced ...
We have over 20 HD2 devices issued to staff & in their 3rd year of use, we issued Andida as spares & have had no issues with them to date, had issues with Momax & local no name brands ...
In no way am I saying Andida is superb but performance seems close/same to standard & at Hong Kong direct price we would be mad to pay HTC genuine prices with no real benefit ...
[DEVICE1] : [HD2] [EU late model, socket lcd & samsung nand]
