    i read a lot that htc batteries are not the best. does anyone know if htc has an battery that can last longer? i usually have my phone charging while at work thru the pc. but a night w/o charging will drop my battery to less than 50%. i need a battery that can last much longer that the one included with the device. is there any by htc or aftermarket?

    I have a 1900mah one from Anker that I like. I got it from eBay for like $11.

    ChiChi tech sent me 2-1900 mAmp batteries and a wall charger for the batteries, for $38. I have been using them for a month now and find about a 30% increase of user time. Check Amazon for the items.

    I also got these batteries (1900mAh), and the nice thing that I liked about the wall charger is that it can charge one battery in the charger and also the one in the phone at the same time.

    An example is a recent weekend ski trip I just got back from, and we had 3 of the same Sensation 4g... anyway. This is the way that our use turned out.
    Myself - (2) ChiChi tech (1900)------------lasted 9am-1pm
    friend 1 - extended battery (1900)----------lasted 9am-12pm
    friend 3 - standard battery (1400)-----------lasted 9am-11am

    The nice thing is while they were waiting to get back to the lodge to recharge I just swapped batteries and kept using the phone, for pictures and videos listening to music as well. It was very handy it is to have a fully charged second battery at hand for a quick swap.

    I ordered them awhile back then i first got the sensation and paid $29, I usually do not recommend accessories but this one is an added benefit to the phone.

    I did test the chichi tech batteries I got via Amazon (see my previous post) and they are 1900 mA and fit perfectly. But you can not get a batt temp reading.

    I'm using the same battery with no issues. The firmware update to 2.3.4 got my better battery times than the increased battery though.
  10. No idea if its a true 2300 or not but it last longer than the OEM
