ITS $4!!!!!!!

FOUR DOLLARS, from HTC (not some x-brand).

It's worth charging, and tossing in your glove compartment. It's legit. Get it!

Hopefully most everyone knows this, but this is almost certainly a knock-off.
1) OEM extended batteries don't cost $4 (now $3)
2) The part # is not the same. Notice the carefully placed dash. Even if it was exactly the same, that doesn't mean it's truly HTC.

That being said, I've had mixed results w/ "brand x" batteries and some are decent.

I bought the one from Amazon for $2.98 just because it was that cheap. Just got it yesterday, but didnt pick up the extended cover yet.

Good god this Rezound camera takes some good macro shots. Picked up tons of detail. Disregard the water on top, I was holding a drink.

Please lemme know what you think of the $3 battery. I might pick a couple up if they're decent.

Agreed on the camera...It takes great pictures. I don't even feel like I need to qualify that with "for a phone". It just takes great pictures. Never thought I'd say that.

You are one brave soul if you are going to put that in your phone.

I bought 2 of them...they are the same exact thing as the Rezound's extended battery, just black color and marketed for the thunderbolt. Both get 3 days on a single charge and haven't had one problem with them yet

I would love to get that much out of any battery I use. Heck I would just be happy to make it a day without killing a battery. Do you use push mail or anything? I just don't see how you can get that much life out of the battery. I sync with two email addresses, and have beautiful widgets set to update every three hours. Other than that, I don't really have anything set to sync every so often.

I have 4 emails and use fancy widgets synching every hour on ineffabilis with custom battery tweaks. Screen on time for 3 days is usually around 6 hours

That's an interesting outlook. I have been using one of these for nearly two months now with no issues. It has worked perfectly. I have another actual HTC extended battery which I alternate with this one and there is no perceivable difference between the two.
