I was thinking about buying a 1500 mah battery from ebay then I read a thread stating that the Inspire 4g stock battery lasted longer. The "Mah" rating is not industry regulated so basicly a manufacture can put 1600 mah on a battery thats 1100 mah without getting reprimanded or fined. So be carefull where you buy these batterys from and make sure the Co. is reputable first.

...for any given LiION battery of a given size, pretty much x capacity is the result +- a very negligible amount...really...that's the state of the tech...ebay is full of peeps wanting to sell "magic" to other peeps wanting a something as elusive as "battery life" of a smart phone...really...snake oil...

The technology itself is the cap. For this size this is the most juice you are going to get, unless they figure out a way to pack more energy cells into the same amount of space. Which they haven't. Don't be fooled. The battery that came with phone is the best available for this phone.

I got some extended batteries and found I had to fully charge them then wipe the battery stats run it down to 0 then charge it to 100 before I saw an improvement, but now I can get like 13 or 14 hours of use on average. I also like being able to carry around a spare battery

All that did is calibrate the battery. It's not going to hold any more juice than the space allows. It's physics. Until a new technology comes out...
I get better battery life than that and I have never changed my battery.
