    I know the EVO 1500 mAh battery will work in the Droid Incredible--my question is whether it's ok to use? Are there any voltage issues or warranty problems I should be aware of before I pull the trigger? Or are they all just interchangeable

    Thanks!

    are those batteries slim fitting or would I need a new back? I have tried to keep up with all the battery threads but they are just to much to read :) Basically, I do NOT want to buy a larger back cover but I want the most battery (obviously) I can get. Ideas?

    The incredible only comes with a 1300, so that's what he's talking about, and I also believe to actual htc 1500 has been known to be better than cheap replacement 1500;s from ebay or what not.

    What kind of battery life are you getting? Where did you purchase your 1800 and how much did it cost you?

    It's the same capacity as the other 1500mAh batteries but from what I noticed(two "regular" 1500mAh vs. the EVO 1500mAh); the battery temp didn't work in the other batteries, but worked fine with the EVO battery.

    Got the 1800 on ebay. On the stock battery I would have about 30% when I got out of work and now I have usually about 60-75% after work occasionaly 80ish. I have found that the battery charger I got with the battery charges better than the stock charger that came with the phone. So I take my 1800 out at night and charger in the one that came with it and put my stock battery in at night, then swap them again in the morning.

    Was this battery sold by ChiChi on ebay? I just purchased an 1800 evo battery and charger from htc express and the seller was ChiChi something. I read a bunch of good reviews and I figured for a new battery and charger $20 shipped wasn't unreasonable. The battery is red too which I liked to keep with the theme. I'm glad to hear from another person that this battery works well. Did you cycle it when you first got it or would you charge it regularly?

    I ordered one if those 1800 batteries from htc express's website. I should be getting it soon. I'll let you know how much better it is than the 1500 batteries.

    I can't speak of the 1500 battery but I've had the 1800 in my Inc since yesterday and currently I'm at 24 hours since my last unplug and I'm still at 40% battery with WiFi and always sync constantly on. I'm extremely impressed with this battery and recommend it to anyone who is looking for better battery life.
