    The Evo 3D battery is 1730mAh and works in the Sensation. You just have use the battery flipped over. It is only $29.99 at htcpedia shop.

    has anybody tested to see if it's much better? if it's a stock HTC battery, I would think so given the almost 200mah improvement, and the already solid battery life on the Sensation... at least so I've heard.

    Yes, you are getting about 2 more hours of talk time. With applications and games, it varies greatly because some just use a lot of energy.

    so it's the exact same size then? i.e., it's not like a millimeter different and therefore causes a little extra pressure on the back or front? (like the Droid X/X2's extended battery with the stock cover)

    There is typically a 1:1 relationship between the increase in mAh, and the increase in "similar usage". Given that the continuous talk time for the Sensation is listed at 400 minutes WCDMA (495 minutes GSM), and the Evo's battery is ~13% larger than stock, then one would typically see a 13% gain in "talk time" (or again, "your normal usage"), of about 55 minutes. Or, if your battery dies after 24hrs, then with the new battery, it would die after ~27hrs.

    As always, YMMV.

    The website I suggested sells a genuine HTC Evo 3D battery.
