    Has anyone got the 1900 mAh Anker battery for the Sensation & is there an improvement?

    Sure have.

    I found battery issues after upgrading to 2.3.4.

    I therefore bought one and I have to say it is giving me at least 20% extra on the day with fairly heavy usage.

    I have had it a week so far and now the phone sits with all syncro and options on, and from a full charge before bed, in the morning, it wakes up with over 95% still on the clock, whilst on the old battery it was around 73%.

    I am well pleased.

    It has no size issues in the case and charging is no problem also.

    Yep, just got mine through in the post. I'll report back in a few days on performance. Over at xda quite a few are reporting around 20 - 25 % extra battery life, so fingers crossed that i see similar results.

    First impressions, well packaged and seems decent quality.

    Ok, after 4 full charge and discharge cycles I can confirm i'm getting roughly 20% extra battery life compared to the htc battery. The phone also feels cooler in circumstances where the htc battery was getting quite hot.

    Cheers

    Im on my 3rd full charge since getting the Anker battery and have noticed a big improvement (1st and 2nd charges were pants) :mad: Can I ask you if you use the battery booster temperature application, and if so, can you confirm that the temp gauge is stuck @ 25 degrees? as mine is:eek:

    I use the HTC battery widget which reports the temperature and I can confirm that with 3rd party batteries it doesnt report the correct temperature. My Anker battery always reports 25c.

    Going by how hot the back of the phone feels compared to the stock HTC battery, I would estimate the Anker battery doesnt get any hotter than 37/38c (it feels roughly as hot as the stock battery did at this temp at most) for me, compared to the stock HTC battery hitting a max of 46c on my sensation.

    So yes the phone runs cooler with the Anker battery, but no there's no way to read the exact correct temp as far as I know.

    Cheers

    Purchased Anker 1900mah for a bargain price of $14.99 on Ebay via a USA seller. My general daily usage of Sensation has remained the same (medium to heavy use). Installed the battery over a week ago and have charged it daily. Significant improvement (2-3 hours) longer run time in comparison to stock HTC battery. Also Anker battery runs a lot cooler whilst charging and in hand. HTC stock battery is not worthy! Very pleased with Anker battery for Sensation.

    It's a complete no brainer, getting this battery is a must. I usually use my phone very little during the day. Some browsing, a couple of texts, a look on Google Maps, and maybe a call and its still at 100%, maybe 99% when I get home from work @5pm. Then I use the phone alot during the evening, and by bedtime its down to 65-70%.
    With the stock battery it would be down to 85-90% by lunchtim:)e. What else can I say! ;)

    guys i bought my new sensation few days ago , the battery is discharging after 6 hours only , i only check the time every 5-10 minutes , and immediately close the screen afterwards , this is unbearable.

    You should get more than that out of your stock battery. The Anker battery will give you better performance, but not that much better. What have you got working or syncing in the background?

    Got one very soon after getting the phone as the initial life was very poor. It's a huge improvement and normally means there is still power at the end of the day despite frequent use (mainly browsing). I've had it 6 or 7 weeks now.

    can anybody confirm this will fit straight in without the need for a bigger back or different case or anything?

    I bought the twin pack with charger and my phone is now usable right through the day and evening, very pleased.

    Haven't even unwrapped the second one or used the charger as had no need, highly recommended.

    I can't recommend this battery enough. Got one last week and it's been fantastic so far. I've been able to go almost 2 full days without charging (whereas I had to charge every night with the stock battery).

    I've just waded in and ordered one. Mind you I'm on hour 21 since my last charge and running at 14%.

    I love the sensation - running Android Revolution HD.
