    Just a quick, unscientific comparison of three batteries.
    All three were cycled 3 times and then spend a week or two in the phone (EVO 4G 2.2).
    Discharger used was a Triton EQ. 500ma discharge to 3v under load. High discharge because it simulates a phone @ max useage and because I didn't want to wait. :)
    First mah number is battery charged in phone via HTC EVO AC charger. Second mah is battery charged by Cheap Chinese External Charger that came with the Galilio battery.

    HTC OEM Red 1500 / U$18 - 1312mah / 1458mah
    Seidio 1700 / U$44 - 1318mah / 1448mah
    Galilio 1800 / U$8 - 1337mah / 1586mah
    add on...
    China 3500 / U$10 - 2284mah / 2469mah
    China 3000 / U$10 - 2224mah / 2478mah

    Mah are low because of the high 500ma discharge rate and they do not represent the way manufacturers rate their batteries.
    Note that the external charger put more mah into the battery so the EVO still has the charging bug.
    I'm annoyed at Seidio :mad: for overcharging for their "1700mah" battery. I could have bought 5 Galilio batteries for one Seidio.


    Just FYI. No warranties. Don't sue.

    I have both- Seidio battery 1750mAh ($30 something) and the Galilio battery 1800mAh ($9 ebay). Without benchmarks or a scientific study- just used them both off and on for a month- the Galilio seems to hold a better charge. The first week, the Seidio battery was strong- but started dropping faster after that. Just my two cents.
