    Wonder why they couldn't make a 1800 mAh battery like the other ones.

    Hmm? 2 batteries and a charger for that price? Has anyone delt with them in the past, and how are they're batteries holding up.

    I saw the same product on Amazon earlier in the week - but this source is offering it cheaper.

    Is it really 2 batteries? Someone told me that a 2x..... is one battery. I really couldn't figure it out.

    I ordered a couple of batteries from htcexpress.com for my Incredible. Didn't have any problems with them. I might order these batteries for my TB soon too.

    I bought an aftermarket battery and charger with USB for my Moto droid and it was all garbage. The battery didn't last and the charger only worked once...same with the second charger they sent to replace it. I don't remember where I got it but now will only go for names I know and someone I can go back to if it doesn't work. I'll keep watching to see what you all recommend.

    Saw these on amazon early this morning and picked them up. Hopefully as good as the 1800 were

    I ordered a set as well. And for the guy asking, it's 2 batteries and a wall charger.

    If you order direct from their site use OFF10 for a 10% discount. With free USPS shipping its $44.99.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that these are an improvement over the OEM battery. From researching this seller it seems that there is lots more positive feedback then negative. Seems many have had good results with their batteries.

    These guys are local to me so if I have problems I can just go knocking on their door.

    think this is what we've all been waiting for to be honest. wish it was 1800+ like the evo but a 1700 is still a 25% increase so it might be just enough for me to last through the day (probably not). I am very eagerly awaiting the reviews from everyone!

    What worries me is it's the same model number this seller is using for the 2x 1500mah batteries and charger. Go to hTC Express and search for myt4g. Both kits are saying BD42100, and if you use the magnifier on the 1700 mah battery you will see right on the battery BD42100. Just sayin.

    This site has bad reviews all over the place and their batteries test well below the stated capacity. Stay away.

    I've got the 1500 mah from this seller - they ship really fast and the batteries thus far are performing as good as OEM. I'm going to wait another month or so and see how the batteries hold up over time, but if they keep going strong then I'll give a positive review on Amazon.

    Following the links above - it looks like the only compliant was that a guy tried to cancel his order with them and they don't respond. Not that big of a deal, if you ask me.

    Can you please tell me were you found battery tests from this seller? I've looked all over and can not find any tests. Spent hours researching.

    Yeah it looks like they are using stock images. The battery in the image on Amazon even says myT4G.

    Right but the image for the 1700mah that's on the official hTC Express web site says right on the battery, Thunderbolt, MYT4G, merge and then says 1700mah BD42100 which is the same number on the 1500mah battery/charger combo I got a few days ago. It just seems fishy that all of sudden, 1700mah batteries appear out of no where. I'm sure the 1500mah batteries will be fine for the price considering they come with a charger that could at least be a good charger for a brand name battery if nothing else. I just don't know I would want to pay almost twice the money for the 1700mah kit when it looks like a rebrand. Somebody buy the 1700mah kit and be the guinny pig and test it. :D

    Does seem fishy. I should have my 1700s in a few days and will do my best to test them and post my results.
