Has anyone ever ordered batteries for the Charge from Hong Kong off of eBay?

They are selling 2 batteries, and a battery charger for $13.00 bucks.

I want to order this....but not sure how good the batteries are...

Has anyone ordered any of these batteries from overseas?

MODS>>>if I am not allowed to post link...please delete it THANKS

I snagged a similar thing for my Fascinate last year. 3 spares + charger for $12 shipped.

They were easily just as good as the stock battery.

YMMV depending on seller/manufacturer, but the ones I got were just fine.

I bought the same battery off Amazon never lasted longer than 4hrs with only heavy txting really but my stock battery doesn't last long either so I've read the reviews for it so I'm thinking it's my phone

Yup. Just check that they're OEM Samsung batteries and they'll be the same as you'd get from VZW for a lot more. I got a few for my OG Droid and they outlasted my use of the phone. Got two this time just because they were so cheap, but haven't had a reason to use them yet, though I have one hot-charged. Usually takes 10 days or so to get to you by China Post, but there's no scam. They're just dirt cheap there and they still make a little sending them along.

The wall charger is fine, just don't ever bother trying to use the USB on it. I know it used to drive the screen bananas and phantom click all over the damned place. It's cool for the battery alone tho.

So how would this compare to say, the Hyperion batteries?
