Well, after reading the threads here, I thought it was worth investing the six quid in one. Looking forward to receiving it. Like you lot, I just wish HTC had put a sensible battery in there in the first place. Still, stock batteries do at least charge quickly. But my old Blackberry used to charge fast, and then last three days with a lot of email, internet and twitter. Hoping that the new battery may increase my use of the phone to more than twelve hours only! Trouble is, as we all know, the phone itself is lovely.
