    I bought one of these 2000 mAh batteries off ebay for the ultra cheap ($5) and after doing some not so scientific test found that it didnt last as long as the stock battery or as long as seidio 1750. so I pulled it out and decided to remove the pretty sticker to find a metal battery underneath with 900mAh clearly printed on it in lazer etch. It will serve as an emergency only battery from now on but it did pull a little close to and over 3hrs of use but not much though.

    I would contact the seller for a refund. If they don't agree then get ebay involved. That's the kind of BS that gives ebay a bad rep....

    3.Weclome to visit my ebay store,The name is :2009st2009

    This is the link and the battery looks just as pictured, but once you peel away the sticker it says 900mAh on it in lazer etch (sorry no pictures of it)

    Also on a side note the battery is actually a little slimmer than the stock or the seidio 1750 battery ( width wise) which explains the why its really a 900mAh

    I was not going to go through the whole process with ebay or paypal for a $5 dollar shipped item, I think my time and effort would cost more.

  7. that's what they are hoping too.. you do nothing.. you need to file a claim to show them and put them on notice

    I understand wht you are saying, but it is not worth the time or my effort for $5 BUCKS. I am just happy to warn my fellow EVO owners to be aware of this but if they want to test it, it will cost them $5 bucks. I would also have to prove that that was the battery that they sent me and that I didnt just slap their sticker on a lesser battery. Can I prove this over E-mail, NO, am I willing to mail it to ebay or paypal for them to verify what I am saying is true, NO. Plus I altered the battery from its original design rather than having an expert do it. Which supports any claim of why should anyone of authority believe me over them?

    Now $5 bucks for a 900mAh battey that fits your evo is not a bad deal as a back-up in case of emergency, but to claim its a 2000mAh is just wrong.
  9. I purchased from same guy and just emailed him today asking about this. See what he has to say
  10. Some of those sellers will do anything for a 5 star rating or, more so, to avoid any negative feedback and lower rating. I would email them and tell them you are not ready to rate then because you are dissatisfied with the item. Tell them you need a resolution but are not willing to ship the item back. I bet you get a full refund and get to keep the battery. I have had legitimate complaints before and usually just get a refund while keeping the product.

    Note: this had only worked with "cheap" items such as this.
