i am planing to buy a 1850 mah battery for my htc hd2 and i have two questions:

this battery:


1. is it safe ( will the phone overheat and the processor die or something ?? )

2. if it is safe, is there some special setup to install the battery that it would work correctly or just turn off my hd2 and switch the original 1300 mah
with a 1850 mah battery and turn it on again ?

It is a cheap cell with false mAh claim.
At best it will be around same as original 1230mAh
At worst it will explode !
Be careful with these after-market cells.
Andida, Feipusi & Tekcomm have some proven record but none had the claimed capacity of 1600mAh+
I have Andida cells almost 2years old & they work quite good & at about $6.50USD are cheap replacements.
Feipusi & Tekcomm also been ok for me as cheap replacements/spares.
Standard size 1600mAh+ batteries simply are not available ...

review on standard size better capacity batteries are available in forums. but personally i would say difference is negligible. try the high capacity bulky batteries. they atleast provide your device with some juice to work on.

If they are the same size as the original 1230 mAH, they are not 1850. I use original HTC 2300 mAH battery

Big fat liar.

How can you say it's safe when there's not even a ONE safety mark print?
Also those batteries are a lottery:
-it might work, may not.
-it may explode and HURT/KILL YOU

Try more reliable sources(Andida, Mugen though they sell fake capacity batteries too) which are known better and at least contain CE marking. Or best, buy OEM battery for real capacity and safety.

With cheap batteries you never know what could happen.
Also, there is NO bigger capacity than 1230mAh for standard flat battery. IT DOES NOT EXIST.

This person should not be here at all for giving false info to people. What a cr**ker !

These cheap chinese batteries will do nothing but damage your HD2 in no time. Buy something as suggested by Mr.B, he knows what he's talking about.

I have used the Mugen extended batteries that gave no problems up till I ran over the phone with my bike. Gave the phone new life as I didn't have to charge it daily anymore.
