3 batteries, wall charger for 12 bucks on ebay. They are from Hong Kong, take a couple weeks in shipping and last a bit more then half as long as stock but well worth it for backup batts.

Meh. I'd rather buy one of those external batteries with a USB charger than put one of those Chinese pieces of crap in my MoPho. ...haven't had the best of luck with Fleabay Li-ion batteries.

It would be nice, however, if the OEM's wouldn't bend us over to get a good battery.

Yikes is right. That's 1/2 the price of the phone since BB has it for $99 now!

You can get the OEM HF5X off Ebay for $16. I got one and it's just like my OG Battery.

It's not the OEM battery. It's only 1500 mAh.

The 3 aftermarket 1500 maH with wall charger do fit and work in the Photon, a much better deal for 13 bucks. I have used the same ones in my Epic the past year and they were fine.
