    I bought one yesterday but not from that guy. I think I paid $20 for one out of California. We'll see how it goes.

    will this battery fit with the OEM case, so does it need a bigger back.

    how much do these batteries really improve battery life? do you guys plan to use them as a replacement or as a secondary battery?

    This is my first time purchasing another battery so it'll either become the replacement if I can see gains and if I can't well its nice to have a spare.

    I got one of these deals about a month ago. Came with two batteries and the same charger that is listed in all the other auctions. One of the batteries was DOA and it wasn't really worth the effort to fight it.

    The one that does work is okay...I do worry about using it though. Afraid it may blow up or something cause it's so cheap. Decent backup to carry just in case, but I don't use it all the time.

    I would buy an extended battery but those damn cases are hideous. The phone loses some of its appeal to me.

    Thank you for the link. I purchased one. What's the worse that could happen? (I know it could cause the phone to melt, but I like to take risks).

    I got mine yesterday and charged it overnight. I'll pop it in and post my results sometime over the weekend.

    Got mine yesterday too. I've been playing in FroYo land so I haven't done much other than charge them up.

    Here is the specific kit I have. This link shouldn't expire

    HTC EVO 4G SPRINT HERO 2x1800 mAh Battery Dock USB items - Get great deals on items on eBay.com!

    The build quality of the charger is really poor. Not falling apart or anything, just cheap materials. The charger does work and the charge indicator light is kinda nice. I've topped off the stock HTC battery and the Seidio "3500 mAh" with it. The Evo shows them at 100% when I put them back in, so I'm guessing this is a good sign.

    The batteries have rounded sides instead of the squared shape of the stock EVO battery. This makes them a little off-putting when removing them. You can get it our with your fingers, but I just pop the phone into my palm to take them out.

    I don't have a scale, but the batteries feel a bit heaver than the stock one. This would be expected if these things are really 1800 mAh.

    As for life, they work and I'm seeing longer life, but like I said earlier I've been dorking around with FroYo. I'm not sure which is helping.

    The increased life isn't anything groundbreaking, but I'm almost comfortable enough to say they perform as well as the stock batteries.

    If this holds true, this is a good deal. Two batteries and a charger for $30 shipped is really decent.

    That said, I didn't think the battery purchase through too well. I carry my phone in my front pocket and these little cells store a bunch of energy. If the manufacturer cut corners, as many no-brand Chinese companies do, I'm not terribly sure I'd want a potential explosion that close to my man-junk.

    I'll be watching the batteries very closely :)
