1500 mAh battery DealExtreme $8.70
About a month ago I was browsing DealExtreme for some stuff and I ran into this for only $8.70: 3.7V 1500mAh Battery with Battery Charger + EU Plug Power Adapter Set for HTC desire Z
I ordered the 1500 mAh battery and nearly three weeks later it arrived in a yellow envelope. It works great and it comes with a wall charger for the extra battery (WITH some colourful LEDs
(pink for charging and blue just for fun)). As I was just about to write this notification I browsed DX again and also found this one:
Replacement 3.7V 1500mAh Cellphone Battery with Charger for HTC Desire Z/Vision/BB96100
. You might notice the lack of European power plug support, but it also is $0.70 less
You might also notice the USB port. I just tested it and it seems to be working (the red notification LED is on, but the battery icon doesn't change, might be due to the fact that the battery is already full).
I tested it and it works, so now it's up to you guys to order one if you are in need of an extra (cheap) battery!
Edit: On the wall charger is the following written on a label: For T7373 Touch Pro2 (HTC Touch Pro2/T7373/T7388/T8388)
So the battery of the HTC Vision might be the same as the Touch Pro 2?
Anyway, just thought I should share.

Battery life is good, I guess like 10% better or so.

No bulge, perfect fit, no mods.
