    Just a heads up, I purchased one of those 1500mah from eBay and it worked fine for awhile... then all of the sudden my battery life went down to two hours or so and my proximity sensor stopped working and my locations were also totally hosed. I brought it into VZW and they were clueless and just performed a wipe to cure the problems... NOT. Because the battery life was so bad, I brought my old 1300 along one day to keep me going. After I put the 1300 in, all the issues disappeared. It is weird, because the 1500 is from HTC and it never really gave any extra life, but sure made a mess of my Eris. Three days now of running the stock battery and no issues.

    I have had great luck with the cheapo Ebay batteries, but there is always a risk when you don't buy directly from the manufacturer. Even then, you can get a bad battery.

    This is totally true. For giggles, I put the battery on a multimeter and it is putting out more voltage than the 1300... by a lot. Hope I didn't fry my Eris!

    You THINK the 1500 is from HTC, is there a S/N on the battery that you can contact HTC and verify???

    Anybody can copy a sticker.

    I bought the 3500 Seidio battery from Amazon ($75 with shipping), and I have had zero problems with it. Unless having wifi, bluetooth, GPS all turned ON and going 24+ hours without a charge constitutes a "problem".... ;)
