    Ok im taking a punt here and buying a Mugen 1600mah extended battery for my desire.

    The battery i've gone for is the Mugen 1600mah for the nexus one. As far as i can tell the nexus and the desire share the same BB99100 1400mah battery so it should fit fine.

    Mugen are a quality brand and my old extended Hero battery made all the difference.

    As soon as i get it i will update you all with the progress and battery life extention times.:)

    No the 1600mah doesnt need a cover. Same size as the standard battery (similar to my old Mugen Hero extended battery)

    There are larger batterys for the nexus one that need a new cover.....the battery would fit in the Desire however the cover would not fit (as its a differnt phone)....
    - So in effect there is no larger battery with cover (yet) for the Desire
    - Although would you want to make the phone upto 6mm thicker? I wouldnt.

    Looking forward to your update. How much does it cost? It's a pretty small increase but if it doesn't require a new case, I'd definitely consider it.

    Oh for wireless charging...

    I think It was about $40 but a bit more for the postage to the UK.

    When you get it could you post how long the old and new batteries last, what you have turned on (wi-fi, 3G, GPS, etc) and how heavy your use is please?

    I've pre-ordered this too. Remember not to judge the battery until you've had about a week of full charges and discharges. The Desire standard battery really improved for me over that time.

    1600 is 14.2% more than 1400. So in theory it should last 14.2% longer.

    See the sticky at the top of this page.

    From an email Mugen engineers sent to BatteryBoss:


    80-85% usable capacity of a 1600mAh battery puts it in the region of 1300-1350mAh


    The 1400 mAh battery that came with your phone has a usable capacity of about 95%, or roughly 1350mAh


    You will not get longer battery life out of a mugen 1600mAh battery. End of story.

    Same with Seidio 1600mAh batteries.

    Do not waste your money on them!

    You may want to consider buying a standard desire replacement battery such as HTC BA S410 Desire Battery

    I did so, and the replacement lasts me 18-20 hours compared to 10-12 hours with the one that came with the phone.

    The original one has had a few weeks to "settle in" and there was no improvement in its performance. The new one however lasted longer from the very first time I used it.

    See this thread http://androidforums.com/htc-desire/81842-battery-performance-variation.html

    There is clearly a huge variation in the performance of the batteries shipped with the desire, as shown by the large number of people on this forum getting less than 10 hours, and an equal number getting double that.

    Just thought Id share with you that I took delivery today of my HTC Desire 2600mah battery and larger rear cover today. I ordered it Thursday from oddsandpods here in the UK after ordering it Thursday evening. Heres the link: Odds And Pods-HTC Desire Extended 2600mAh Battery and Replacement Back Cover

    I had their HTC Hero version last year and it served me well so I thought Id try them again. Its on charge tonight then I'll be using it tomorrow.

    Looking forward to reading your review.

    Edit: It looks like you may well be the seller of these items, or at the very least involved with the promotion. I shan't expect an unbiased review. :rolleyes:

    Ive been running arround with the battery for a few days and i really does help me get through the day :) I wouldnt go so far as to say Im getting double the battery life, but it is lasting my working day so in my eyes it was a good investment.

    The theory on Desire batteries shipped with the Device being inferior to general HTC batteries is interestng and one I've heard a few times now. Is there really any truth in this?

    I have a Desire HD, so are we saying that:

    1. If we buy another standard original battery for the device, that will be better than the one supplied with the phone?

    2. There is no point in spending money on buying these extended life batteries as they won't double or better the last time?

    This is an interesting debate, and I would be keen to learn any levels of truth in what we are saying with backup?
