Battery Full 2450mAh "Gold" slim battery

Well guys n gals, I have received today THIS battery.
(edit: it seems the seller has raised the price slightly, when I bought it couple weeks ago I've paid $6 USD with free shipping)
(edit again: price actually goes up or down a dime or two because of the exchange rate: this listing is originally in GBP - British Pound Sterling, so it depends on how high or low currency exchange is at this moment




MORE PICTURES HERE


It is for HTC Sensation, however:

the good:
- it doesn't require any special back door (it is standard size)
- it does have much larger capacity (don't know is it really/exactly 2450 mAh, but certainly it IS of larger than original, see my first notes below)
- it didn't get hot (and it was just warm when chgarging)
- it is Made in Japan (which generally indicate best quality)
- it is recognized by MT4GS (no "unrecognized" battery problems)

the bad:
- it is slightly larger, by about 0.5-1mm (perhaps because of this thick gold aluminium sticker it is wrapped around?). I had to insert it at the angle and kinda "squeeze" it in at the top
- takes long time to charge (it took about 6hrs to charge using phone's original charger)




(seller's stock photos that were here have been removed - after 6mths all links are dead)



My MT4GS is currently running on this battery for 4+hrs (with data - 4G or wifi - turned ON all time) and finally the "full" battery icon has changed to the "almost full" (1 notch less) on the screen.
With same use I would be in the middle or slightly more than half on original battery (that's how I already know it must have larger capacity).

Will let you know more once I use it and test it further.

Screenshots for the first 3 charge/ discharge cycles, conclusion and my other reports:

As I said, it just arrived today, will tell you more about this battery in few days.
I don't have any Anker batteries to compare it with.

BTW, stupid question: how do you take screenshots with stock ROM?
(I have tried power button + home but it doesn't work, or the picture went somewhere where I can't find it lol)

That kinda looks like an Anker with a different wrapper. The notches and cuts are almost identical.

Easier said than done. There aren't many screenshot apps for unrooted phones, and not a single one free (for unrooted)

Well, they all should be almost identical or the battery wouldn't fit our phones...



New status pics after few hrs of "sleep" at night, and about 1/2hr of "work"
(had to find screenshot app that works, and I tested install/uninst about 10 of them)



edit
Can someone explain to me what is that blue line at the top underneath the runtime?
Apparently it shows usage or (non-usage?) as a linear graph, but how do I "read it", the gaps at begining (or on the left) and then it turns into constant line on the right side?
