I'm tired of constantly swapping out batteries through out the day. I was looking at the 3800mah batteries on Ebay, but I'll be darn if I'll make my phone a hunchback. I just noticed this battery popped out, so what do you guys think? Worth it?

that guy tested andida batteries and on average they got 55-60% of their rated capacities. I'd say your better off going with the cheap generic ones that are 3 for 13 bucks with a charger.

Damn. That would be an ideal size for our phones stock. Anyone want to still try it and get back to us?

Do you think this 3500 mAh Extended Battery + Cover from Amazon is worth giving a try? Its generic... but its also only $8.05 free shipping. I would think even if it only lasts a few months it'd be worth it. Anyone find any good cases that will work with the fat batteries?

So these were hit and miss on the HTC Hero. Any other reviews? Wish it was $10 like that one was. May just try it to know for sure.

i think its safe to say there is a lot of variability in what these sellers are putting out. i personally was happy with the 3 for 13 deal posted here, but others had a bad experience. I know people in the EVO forums (my old home) had good experiences with "chinitech" batteries(available on amazon). The only surefire way to know if they are any good is to test em and decide for yourself. I know its isnt much help but its all i got...

If you buy from a retailer with a good return policy (amazon) its less risky than buying from an ebay all sales final type of seller.
