    There are lots of battery threads but I am trying to get to the point with this one.

    Would someone who has had a cheap battery for a few weeks comment with suggestions?

    I know it won't be as good as an expensive one but I am just looking for a backup battery for traveling/flying. It doesn't have to be amazing but I am looking for someone who has had a good experience with one of the many cheap batteries out there. And it seems like after the first week, the honeymoon is off.

    some ebay prices shipped:
    2x 1300 mAh plus charger $10 - Item # 170522089513
    2600 mAh plus cover $11.50 - Item # 250669240800
    2x 2600 mAh plus cover and charger $22 - Item # 220629106669

    Bad experiences welcome also!
    Thanks for your help!

    I got the 2x 1500mAh batteries, which were actually 1100mAh, + the desktop charger. e-mailed the seller questioning the mAh difference, and he refunded my money and let me keep everything. They get about the same life as the stock 1300mAh battery and since it was free, I am really, really happy, lol. :D

    Get the [​IMG]bidallies 1500mah for $15 on ebay it's an OEM battery and fast shipping ;) and gives a solid boost over the 1300mah stock.

    The 1500 ones fit well right? No cracks in the cover?

    Any other thoughts on value? What about the bigger ones?

    The bidallies 1500 fits perfect in mine. I've seen a few mixed results.

    ordered it.
    Thanks for all the feedback.

    might also get the 2 batteries and a charger for $10 just for the charger (and a backup battery to throw in my backpack and glove compartment)

    +1 for the HTC 1500. A little thicker than stock but case closed fully.
