    At first, I put it in my phone and was extremely annoyed when it didn't work!

    Low and behold there's a little gold sticker over the contact plates, and after taking it off and putting the phone back in the LED light immediately came on *whew*

    Anyways, It came with around a 60% charge already on the battery, I'm charging it up now, I'll probably leave it off the charger and see what the difference is once it gets to 100%

    Updates to follow.

    $9.00 for a 2000ma battery will be a great deal if it works.

    So far it works. Problem is that I don't have a "normal" day with my cell phone so i can't take a day to kill my regular 1500mah and then another day to kill the 2000. Sometimes I text with the same person all day, sometimes it's not so much, so I don't know. We'll see how long it takes to die though. I was on it for 3 hours earlier and it dropped from 80% to around 40 so I guess that's ok...

    Any chance you can play music from both batteries and just time which one lasts longer?

    Would it still be around the same if i played music until both batteries hit about 25%?

    Nope.

    Because of the different size batteries, your phone may not actually register the percentage accurately. Additionally, some batteries hold the last bit for an hour and others die quickly.

    Ok, Well I'll have my phone charge up while I'm talking to my girl tonight (I'll use my bluetooth) and I'll start it up when she goes to bed. Should I use pandora or the music player? Pandora will drain more because it's a connection right? So they'll die quicker.

    We're at 65% after 2 hours of Pandora with the 2000...

    More updates soon.

    You know, it's kind of a catch 22... it won't be as accurate but it should be close enough!

    Thank you for doing this BTW :)

    It's been slightly over 4 hours and it's at 8% and it's giving me warnings and stuff, I'm going to actually let it die just to see how long the little soldier holds on, but i'm pretty happy with it so far, I'm just wondering what the difference is between the 2, I'm pretty sure my other battery is at around 70% so it shouldn't take long to charge and start the test on that one.

    It's not long and tedius, I just put pandora on and turned it down while playing video games and stuff, I work at night so I'm up all night and half the day anyways.

    Since it's a comparison test I'm going to run pandora at the same volume so that everything is accurate.

    Alright. It died at 8:56, started at 4:30, so almost exactly 4 and a half hours of pandora, I'm charging the 1500 up now and we'll start running that

    Any problems with excessive heat while charging?

    I'm always skeptical of these $10 extended life batteries from Hong Kong given that the stock ones go for $40 - $60 from Sprint and HTC.

    Anybody know what the quality of these things really is?

    No problem with heat, or while doing things on the phone. I was wrong about the 1500 being charged up, it's charging now(i had to go out and run some errands) and it's at 54% so it might be later tonight when i can actually run the other test because i'll probably be in bed in the next couple hours.

    Something's not right here, I think when I plugged the 2000 in and charged it it just said it was at 100% because it was used to the other battery, I'm going to wipe the stats and redo this test, because my 1500 is just now about to die at 6 hours of pandora, and normally it doesn't even last that long while texting/calling.

    I don't know, honestly... I ran the test again and the Stock battery still out preformed the 2000 one, I have the 2000 in my phone now and it seems to be working out fine, but I was never away from a charger long enough to have to worry about battery life with my 1500 so I'm not exactly sure which one is better. I want to say the 2000 is better but that's probly because I spent the money on it. I might run the test again tomorrow since I'm off, If it turns out the same way and the 1500 is better I'm going to e-mail obostore and ask WTF the problem is.

    They say with these new batteries that you dont have to cycle them to get top performance but I don't buy it. You may see better performance once you cycle it a few times.

    How long did shipping take?

    I just got my 1800mAh battery+charger from fleabay (a month after ordering it)...Twas $16 for the battery and a box charger. I might grab one of these also just to rotate them.
