If you've had it for a year, the battery is probably toast. Mine only lasted about 10 months before I had to replace it. This is the one I bought:
CellularFactory: Huawei Ascend OEM HB4F1 Cell Phone Battery (1500 mAh), FREE Shipping
There are cheaper ones you could find, but this one looked legit, and I can confirm that it was delivered in a timely manner, and afterward my phone lasted all day, no problem. (On CM7, ymmv)
It didn't say Huawei on it, though, despite the picture, and it being described as OEM.
Whatever you get, make sure it is 1500mah. For some reason, a lot of the cheap ones are only 1100mah, which is ridiculous.
