    No, this is not a thread to bash the battery for the EVO. In fact if you do some research, you will notice that i have praised the EVO's battery in the past. Recently, however, my battery died on me on my trip to florida, and a sprint store in Daytona ordered me a new one. It is not the red EVO battery i have come to know, but a mere black one with the words 'HTC Inovations', and has the appearance of it looking used (some crud on it, which i still have not removed). So my question is do batteries have good and bad days? I have not changed any settings on my phone, and i use to get a day out of it before it reaching 20%. Now im lucky to get 6 hours. Did i get a refurbished battery? UGH!

    You know what, I have been asking myself the same question....there are days that my battery is just fine, and others that it drains in NO TIME....Im thinking its a software issue, I am trying to pinpoint what I launch and dont to see if that makes any difference...

    That's clearly a used battery. A new or replacement battery would have come in a plastic wrapper, and would be clean. Take it back and tell them you want a NEW battery, and a red one at that, as thats the one thats supposed to go with the phone.

    Its just strange that i have the same exact settings (everything off, including mobile) and i still get shitty battery life. Its just sad that i went from the moment where i got like 5 hours of life (i had 3 batteries for it!) and i went to this, where i got 24 hours and still some..and now im getting 5 hours. ROAR!

    Eh, i have to wait till the 30 days is up..and the thing is, the battery did come in plastic wrap. I am wondering if they are short on the red batteries.
