Found these batteries on Amazon. Don't own a Z, but they seem to be compatble in the Desire S aswell.

1500mAh - http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0051N...dir_mdp_mobile

1600mAh - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B005...dir_mdp_mobile

Seem cheap and based on the reviews, they seem to work really well!

See the Sensation 1900mAh - http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/cr/B0053...cr_electronics

^Check out the reviews there! They seem to be very good for the sensation!

These batteries are dirt cheap, and seem to work well for other devices!

Anyone own one of these?

Can you give your reviews?

Cheers

I purchased the Anker 1600mAh battery from Amazon for my G2 for $9 shipped and it works great. I would say it gives me about 2 or 3 extra hours than the HTC battery that ships with the phone. This is just anecdotal of course, not scientific. I usually take my phone off the charger around 5:40am and plug it back in to charge around 10pm. The stock battery would usually be at or below 15% at this time. With the Anker I'm usually at about 30%. Not a huge difference, but my HTC battery started going bad so I needed to replace it and for the price, you can't beat it.

I did do a review on Amazon after breaking in the battery and using it for a week. I have no idea why it was taken down though.

The OEM battery for the Vision is actually pretty good, which is more than what can be said for the OEM battery for the Doubleshot. Search around Amazon. You can actually find bundle packs of those batteries for cheaper and they come with a battery wall charger.

I'm happy with my purchase and since I intended to get the new Nexus, I didn't want to end up with a stack of batteries I wouldn't use. Plus, based on reviews on other forums, everyone spoke very highly of the Anker batteries. It has been reliable for past few months (I bought it on July or August).

Many thanks for the quick overview

I appreciate it!!

Small problem though, I can only get the 1600mah in USA...

If I want it in the UK, I have to pay for a set if 2 1600mah batteries and a wall charger for a higher proce..

I just need one battery
