    Got this today: [​IMG]2X Battery+Desktop Charger For HTC Droid Incredible New - eBay (item 320529431475 end time Jun-08-10 00:30:02 PDT)

    EDIT: THESE BATTERIES ARE FAKE!!! Thanks to GrandMasterB to pointing me to this post (which I wish I'd seen earlier):

    http://androidforums.com/accessories-incredible/99219-1500mah-fake-real.html

    Bottom line I got a wall charger that works great and two batteries of unknown capacity (1100 mAh?) that are perfect for use as emergency spares. My OEM battery will continue to be my primary, and with two (at least partially) charged extras with me at all times, I'm golden. Can't beat it for $12 shipped! -kj-

    Thank you for the heads-up! After your post I ordered the same item - even if they are fakes, how can you go wrong with $12 for 2 plus a charger, including shipping?

    What's the deal with this? It appears the item has been removed.

    Batteries are fake. Charger works great though. See my original post, which I have edited. Sorry for the misinformation, guys. If it's too good to be true (and it's coming from China!) it probably is! :)

    lol, of course they're fake. Even on the item descriptions they say Non-OEM, which in china basically means after-market knock-offs.. :D

    I ordered the same.. mine also came with 2 screen protectors.. (not that I am looking forward to them particularly).. but I am going back to Stock size batteries.. love the feel of the phone in my hand without the huge bump.. so I bought these from ebay.. hopefully that'll keep me satisfied :)

    Just my two cents. I got mine yesterday. So far today, I have ~the same usage and battery left as I did with the stock battery! I'm actually really happy, considering these are 1100 mAh batteries, I thought they would fare a lot worse.

    I still e-mailed the seller saying they weren't what I bought, since it's a big difference, to see if they'll do anything for me.

    I'm getting about 16 hours with light use on the 1100 mAh batteries. Not bad at all for $12 :D
