    Just to add, I found with mine that when I first got my desire I was not getting a full 24 hours out of the battery, but after use of a couple of weeks I am comfortably getting in excess of 24 hours. I did full charge and discharge my phone a few times at first. Li-ion batteries should not have any memory effect in this way but the battery does seem to get better after a few full cycles.

    Yeah, mine got better. But I found that with medium-heavy use I just about got 8 hours. I need a bit more really.

    Hello, I thought Id share what I bought to help me with my HTC Desire. I found a 2600mah battery that is thicker and comes with a new rear battery cover at oddsandpods. I prevously bought the same style battery from them for mt HTC Hero and it worked a treat.

    The battery can be found at: Odds And Pods-HTC Desire Extended 2600mAh Battery and Replacement Back Cover

    I ordered it Thursday last week and it arrived in the post this morning. Im charging it tonight then I'll be using it. I hope its as good as the last one I bought from them.

    Any more on this ? As I would like an extended battery, I use my Desire so much that I wonder if it will last to my upgrade.
