I've been noticing these batteries for the M8 wandering around on a couple of websites. Any ideas what's going on here?

First is most interesting as it appears to be HTC branded and quotes OEM. The M8 battery as I understood it was only 2600Mah so kind of curious if this is an HTC part for the M8 why it's a larger capacity at 3300Mah?

What gets me thinking more is whether this could explain why some get really good battery life and others can't get anywhere near that. Perhaps different variations have different sized batteries??

Edit: This is the original battery:



B0P6B100. The one from Wireless Ground is B0P3P100:

The aliexpress link says it's for HTC m8 one max so I doubt it's meant for our phone

Nothing is non-removable. It's just not end user removable (least not easily).

Yet the first link plus the YouTube video clearly says it's for the M8.

Ignore the second link for now. The first link still lists it as if it were for the M8 which is weird..

I've been looking at these batteries too.....I cant get any clear info about whather or not they fit in the m8. My suspicion is that the battery is actually meant for the MAX and it is mislabeled, but if anyone knows differently please correct me. I would throw one of these in my m8 in a heartbeat!
