Hi xytkhi, welcome to AF!

I've moved your post to the Desire HD section (you'd posted in the Original Desire section, easy mistake to make though )

In my humble opinion, I would steer clear. I've found that "higher capacity" 3rd Party batteries will seem to look/work better than stock initially, but after a short period of time, charge will drop off rapidly and the capacity will be worse than standard.

There was a thread here a while back that mentioned Andida batteries specifically. It was probably a 60-40 split in favour of those who didn't find they offered anything more than HTC's offering.

There's no harm in giving them a go, but I wouldn't expect much, sorry.

To be honest ral, I've only ever used the stock battery and (other than once or twice, due to the ROM I flashed) have had pretty good experieces. I did think about getting an aftermarket "long life" battery but, from what I read about the majority of them, it just doesn't seem worth it... they all sound to give better impressions to start with but, as El Presidente says, quickly drop on their performance.

Might as well stuck with stock, the Mugen cost almost twice as much as stock.

How long have you had it? What sort of performance are you getting?

No. I am on my second stock battery. Was thinking of having this shipped a few months ago, but I just got another battery at the HTC Service Center.

This is the first one to come up on Google after a search for a new battery for my HTC HD Desire so i thought i would update this thread.
I had my phone for about 2 years and would be lucky to make it from 9am to 4 pm. It has never made it over 24hr from new that i can remember.
Was going to go for a stock battery for about 30 from HTC, but then read about the
Andida Battery, 15 from the bay to my door.
I have only used it for about 3 weeks but i can get 2 days use out of it now or 9pm to midnight with about 30% left with heavy use and i mean using the net on wifi for about half that time.
(When its quite at work and the boss is not around.lol)

I am not going to go into all the testing and all that, i am just going to say i am happy, but i guess my stock was well passed it so any battery would be better.
I just did not like the look of the cheap non brand one's on the bay for a fiver
I am not say its 1800ma or anything, just that i am happy over my 2 year old stock battery. Half the price of a new stock battery it was worth a try for me.
If it will last 2 years like a stock one, who knows, but i will probably have a new phone before then.
All my phones before would only last about a year before i had to upgrade with something wrong with it, so never had to worry about getting a new battery before.
I must say how good my HTC is, a nice solid phone that has gone over 2 years and still running fine. The only problem i had was fluff in the charger socket that i thought was a damaged charger socket. Fluff from my pocket has been the only problem.

Well i have well rambled on, to finish up, Yes i am happy with my Andida Battery for 15 and very happy with my HTC HD Desire.

One other thing, are Samsung build as good as HTC?

Fair comment Securityman, if it's working out better than stock for you, that's great .

Re. Samsung Vs. HTC, I'd say HTC's have better build quality, but it's a matter of opinion. I know plenty people who prefer Samsung over HTC.
