anyone knows one that is at least nearly as good as the original?

ebay is filled with fakes trying to look good and just plain fakes.

i bought one which i knew it wasn't genuine but i thought "what the heck, it's probably good for a few hours" and it isn't. i have to underclock the cpu so the phone wouldn't reboot and in lasts 6 hours if i'm lucky.

Bought two on DealExtreme... obviously fake and been using one without any issues.. honestly can't tell if it's fake or original judging only by the endurance.

I would like to share my experience of battery purchase. I bought a battery from ebay, this one:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/190669709918...ht_1357wt_1141

I recieved the package in just over a week, but it was a battery for some ZTE device!!! I contacted the seller and they immediately sent me another one. Under one week later I had my new battery(seems like an original battery).

On first charge it seems to hold a lot better then my 15 months old battery I had. Charging now takes 1.5 hours like it used to, the old battery was 0-100% charged in 30-40 minutes, with the original charger.

So for 4.99$ or in my case under 4 including shipment I can go more then a day of normal use, surfing, mail, calling, reading xda..
Or easily 2 days of light use.

I think it was well spent money, I recommend!

Edit: I guess I should mention that battery tested with ezet CM7.

Also bought one from DealExtreme, it works ( no problem there ) but mine doesn't last as long as the original one ( tested on the official 2.3 ), but great for spare if you don't have a charger around .

I bought two of those dx-ones and both had the same s/n
Works maybe a half a day per battery.

In Bangalore, Huawei has a service center near KR Puram. They actually couriered me one since Im too lazy to move around too much :P
Any huawei service center should be able to give you one if you turn up. Give them a call first.
