Since the Desire is still kicking major ass (thanks to the Evervolv KitKat roms) i've decided to buy a new battery and keep using the Desire.

So i'm wondering if anyone knows good battery deals.

I'm not interested in extended backcovers, so that only leaves me with the official stock battery and normal sized third-party batteries.

The best deal i've seen sofar is:
http://www.accu-shop.nl/htc-desire-g7.html (official battery for 14,95 euro).

For unofficial battery i've seen:
http://www.interwize.nl/index.php?ro...&product_id=52 (thirdparty i believe for 9.95 euro).

Has anybody seen different interesting battery deals?

Ignore all the 2.000mAh+ batteries, they are all fakes. (They are all 1400-1600mAh)
Anyway here you go, $5 free shipping (or +1$ for registered package) http://www.fasttech.com/products/0/1...google-nexus-o

It's reliable store I'm ordering a lot of e-cig stuff from here as well as batteries.

Wow. That's not a bad deal. It looks like the battery is not an official HTC stock battery...but nonetheless the price makes it interesting.
I might try this option...

I would be really careful with those China imports. As you all know, bad quality batteries can catch fire or explode.

Careful with replacement batteries, there seem to be a lot out there with broken chip. They will report wrong Voltage and a wrong, static temperature.
So there is the risk of overheating.
Do yourself a favor and give them back until you find a working one (here only original HTC battery was OK, all others I tried had this problem )

Better a Signature than a sick nature

Yes been looking for a replacement / backup myself... seems to be a minefield on Amazon / eBay.. lots of cheap fakes around and some used sold as new.

Direct from HTC is pricey but might be worth it.
