    I assume you're from the US?

    As both those are only compatible with the Sprint Hero - also, the linked one is the same capacity as the standard battery... Only the GSM versions that have the lower capacity battery...

    Not sure on the quality of both of those either, cant say I'm a battery maker connoisseur![FONT=&quot][/FONT]

    Yes for the Sprint Hero in the USA and oops your right the Hero has a 1500. I dont know where I got that 1350 from.

    You know im sure there is a lot of debate about the generic vs. OEM batteries. Ive used a generic battery on every phone I have and they have performed identically to the OEM. My generic battery last twice as long as my OEM in my HTC mougal. Li-Ion batteries should only be expected to last ~2 years anyways....and for about a year of that your probably getting 70-80% of the battery capacity.

    Conclusion: Buy cheap battery and replace more often

    think the 1350mAh is the GSM version mate... So we could definately do with a little bit more power over this side of the pond!

    Do let us know if that works for you. I bought a generic eBay LiIon battery for my Touch Pro (Sprint) and it powered the phone but never registered on the battery meter. The icon for battery on the Touch Pro would show blank so I never knew how much juice was left.

    It is the same battery.... If you read the other posts above you will see that if you have a US Sprint Hero then its literally the same battery. Ive never had that problem with any phone battery that you speak of.

    At first I thought of getting the 1750 extended battery, but decided not to, since I really have my phone plugged in all day at work so its always juiced up.
