Default Better battery?

Can anyone point me in the direction of a better battery for this phone? Mine is 1500 mAh but its also a couple years old and loses charge fairly quickly (even clocked down) so I was wondering if anyone has bought or knows who stocks batteries. I've seen an 1800 mAh battery but I was wondering if there's higher-capacity ones.

There are batteries that are rated over 3200mAh that require a larger back for the phone. Just look on EBay or Amazon and type in Prevail battery in the search box. There are all kinds out there. I personally have two 1800mAh batteries that work rather well. Just beware of the sellers out there selling 1500 batteries with 1800 stickers on them. I had that happen to me with my Marquee. I told the seller I would report him if he didn't give me what I ordered. He made it right and I reported his ass anyways. Lol

Well I just bought an 1800 mAh battery so I'll report on its life and test the current battery in the meantime

How can you tell the battery is not as marked?

There are apps on the market that rate the mAh of a battery. Do a little research on Google and you'll find your answers.
