Well it does get +400 more than the stock battery. Does the seller on ebay give any specifications, the stock battery specs are:
Battery
Capacity:
1400 mAh
Talk time:
6.30 hours
the average is 7 h (447 min)
Stand-by time:
330 hours
the average is 446 h (19 days)

There is only 1 for sale? seems kinda suspicious. You would think they would be selling them at a "buy it now" and not as an auction.

I just took a look at the ebay page...stupid question, would the original charger for the tbolt work, if not that would be a PIA to charge every time.

I asked the seller about specs here is what he gave me:

* Battery Capacity: 1800 mAh * High quality Li-Ion battery. * Battery Type: Lithium Ion. * Voltage: 3.7V.

no mentioned about talktime or anything else but if you look on Ebay for "1800mAh slim battery for HTC thunderbolt" there are so many with different brands. Which one to pick?

I actually purchased one of the 1800mah batteries, and it does much better than the stock battery. I got off of ebay as well, and once I fully cycled the battery a couple of times, I can get a good 10 hours out of the damn thing now!! But hey it could just be the fact that used to only getting 4 hours from stock right?

i bought one of these, same seller. It did not fit in the thunderbolt. The 1700mah i found on ebay did fit, but hasn't gotten me that much better battery life yet. I don't understand why this battery doesn't fit, but it doesn't. I wouldn't waste the money.

i bought two 1700 batteries off of htc express today. I had a battery from them in my incredible, and got great battery life with it. They have a sale today going two batteries plus the wall charger was like 35$ or something. Not bad. I will report back when i recieve it, i currently am using a 1700 no name battery off ebay. Can't say i have anywhere near solid numbers for what i have been getting with it, i have been jumping back and forth from roms, flashing kernels, i will try to stick with cyanogen for a day or two as long as my data works to try to get some solid numbers to post.

Yes folks, DO NOT BELIEVE the hype on stated capacities. Best case scenario they are not testing themselves (the manufacturers) and using some highly idealized numbers. Worst case scenario they are purposefully lying and commiting fraud. Have a look at this nice reasonably scientific and reasonable sample size of test data:

BatteryBoss Calls Out False Capacity Claims!

It takes 2 minutes to decide for yourself.

Don't believe the lies.

Is there a table of battery compatibility between models? Some batteries say that MyTouch batteries are cross-compatible.

Is the same true for Incredible/Incredible 2 etc?

on the bright side, when I complained to the seller that the battery sucked they took it right back.

somehow I feel I should have swallowed the $20 and given them back feedback as a public service...
