Question generic 4000mAh batteries?

Has anyone tried out any of those generic 4000mAh batteries for the Bionic? I realize it's not going to be the same quality as an 'official' battery(or the Mugen one for that matter), but considering how inexpensive they are I am wondering if it's at least worth trying.

Trexcell 4000mAh Battery ($18.99):

Hyperion 4000mAh Battery ($14.99):

Generic 4000mAh Battery $9.99):

i figure since all 3 are cheap crap i may as well try out the cheapest one as it's $9.99 + free shipping. just that it's coming from china so it'll be here in a few months

regardless, at that price if it does crap out then it's only $9.99 that was lost.

both Mugen and Seidio batteries are exceptional. you cant go wrong with either. its just they cost more(but you get what you pay for).

I bought moto extended battery 2wks ago at a verizon stote for $24.99+ tax so I actually paid around $27

So I just keep my stock charged and use as backup

1750+2750= 4500 for $27

More reliable than most generic junk and much cheaper than mugen 4000 $80+

Highly recommend moto extended battery I can last the whole day and still have 25%+ left before I need charge

Unplug @ 6am plug in @ 12 am

Heavy usage
2hrs + talk time
3hrs + navi
30 min - 2hrs gaming
2-6 hrs web on 4g

i guess if i want to watch 2 - 3 movies or a season of tv shows i'm better off with the 4000.

for me it's about 'how long will it last during usage?'
