    Does the new Evo Shift use the same battery as the original Evo?

    Battery Info for Evo Shift
    Model: RHOD160
    Part no: 35H00146-00M
    Rating 3.7VDC 1500mAh 5.55Whr

    The battery looks very similar to the Evo but the corners are a little different by the battery terminals.

    Model number seems to be the same but the part number is different.

    Hope this helps.

    I stand corrected. They do have the same battery. I could have sworn I saw a video on youtube saying they were different.

    that is incorrect the TP2, Evo, And Evo Shift all use the same battery, TP2 and Evo go in the same way for the shift just flip the battery and it fits and works, i have all 3 phones in front of me just tried it and no problems. all 3 are the same 1500mAh

    I believe you can throw another couple of phones into the "same battery" list. I am pretty sure the Incredible (and another phone are two) share this battery, at least according to the Sedio aftermarket battery box (and that company is pretty highly regarded AFAIK).

    I have both phones, the EVO batteries can be flipped and used in the shift, but the Shift battery does not have the little cut out corners and can not be used in the EVO.

    Does the battery in the evo shift work in the evo design? I have used the aftermarket batteries from anker very successfully in my shift, now my wife has the design.
