    Hell for under ten bucks I'll just keep them in the car with the flashlight for emergency use.

    The only thing I'd be worried about knockoff batteries would be the battery exploding while its in your phone. I'm not sure how common that is though.

    I've used this eBay charger and batteries for about 8 months. (From my Hero days.) They work just fine. It's hard for me to tell the difference between the HTC and these knock-offs.

    I now have three sets of batteries and chargers. I like the chargers because they take about three hours to fully charge batteries. Nice and slow. You don't want a rapid charger. Rapid chargers produce heat and heat is the death of any battery, no matter the size.

    I got mine last week from ebay as well. The charger is good. Not sure how fast it is since I charge my batteries over night. The batteries work good. Paid $11.99 with free shipping. Two batteries and a charger, cheaper than one oem red battery. Can't beat that.

    I ordered probably around the same time as well, still have not received mine, probably still hung up at customs.

    I agree for the price you can't go wrong. I was only looking for a battery charger for the spare battery I already had, (Seidio). But now I'll have some spares to keep as a backup.

    I got my pack a couple days ago and so far it works pretty well. One of the batteries I got was definitely better than the other (the good one lasts just about as long as the stock battery, the other one remarkably less) but that's what you get for getting chinese knockoffs. The charger is GREAT...except when you try to charge your phone directly from it. However I charged the stock battery on the charger and FINALLY GOT OVER A DAY'S WORTH OF CHARGE. And this is with normal use, wifi on, etc. So it seems on a normal charge the phone does not charge it fully.

    Thanks for the heads up on this ebay seller. I just bought the 11 piece accessory bundle (ebay item# 290445636149) for 19.99 shipped. I didn't need all of the items but the extra travel charger, the ear buds w/mic and the car mount were worth the Jackson to me.

    After using these batteries + charger for the past 5 days I have to say that I am extremely impressed. I notice no difference between these batteries and the stock one. It has really turned the whole issue of this phone eating up battery life into a non-issue.

    I would estimate these batteries to having 10-25% shorter life than oem. When I use the internet and video playback on the oem battery, I get 4 hours. The china batteries last 3 hours to 3 1/2 hours.
    Keep in mind my usage is continuous (such as streaming the espn World Cup non-stop). Under my normal usage I guess I would get about 10 hours.

    I am in for a set, I will post feedback when we get them and have a chance to test them out.

    I wonder how the seller even manages to ship these for $12 from overseas?

    I just ordered mine!
  24. Because they probably cost less than a dollar to make.
