    i won't list ebay auctions here, as ebay auctions tend to end or get removed, thus resulting in broken links. i'll keep this updated as much as possible.

    even if so, if they're the same batteries, an OEM battery that's the same, just different color, should cost roughly the same price.

    i've read that batteries for those phones should fit into the Evo, according to the Sprint accessories site. but again, if it's the same battery, it should cost the same regardless. i personally will stick to OEM.

    Yeah, I'll stick to OEM myself.

    I'm not buying it right away. I'm going to give Sprint stores some time to stock items and then I'll make my decision based on price vs quality or whatever.

    Yeah but has anyone "officially" confirmed this? Any small change, like moving a contact over slightly would mean it won't work. Has anyone actually tried the Hero battery in the Evo?

    Give it time. There will eventually be lots of information on that particular tidbit.

    I'm just the kind of person who researches and does lists lol. This is just being added into my 'pending' category. Now if only I could find a good and not so expensive 32GB MicroSDHC card lol.

    Hero and TP2 batteries do work, they are the same size and shape. However if you want the same RED color battery for your EVO then here it is (they just had few hundred in stock few weeks ago and today i look back, out of stock.

    HTC EVO 4G, HTC Droid Incredible Extra Capacity Battery

    No one is officially selling an Evo extended battery yet (i.e. back covering).

    1500 mAh

    Battery usage is discussed in a number of other threads. I've detailed some of my battery usage in my own Evo review thread, so hop over there.

    HTC Hero A6277 OEM Back Door Cover & Battery 1500 maH - eBay (item 330437470144 end time May-29-10 16:56:27 PDT)

    Those are the cheapest OEM batteries I've been able to find. It comes with a Hero cover, which I didn't need, so I managed to talk the seller into giving me two batteries for $10 shipped instead of 1 battery and the cover.

    Personally, even if they don't work 100%, I'd still rather have two 1500 mAh batteries for $10 bucks than buy 1 pristine battery at $50 bucks. But some people don't mind spending extra money, I guess.

    Don't know why but virtually every EVO battery listed in any of these threads on EBAY have been pulled or removed. Every eBay link above is removed.

    The item have not been removed, it's the way the posters copy the links. Check my post, I copy the url from the address bar. Seems like everybody else is copying the link from the web page. That's why their links read the title description, not simply the url. if you go to ebay and put in the item numbers of all the items that appear to be deleted you will see.

    Amazon strangely has the EVO battery listed twice with the same "DVO" mispelling.

    One of them is $24.99, while the other is listed at $29.99 and has a picture. I ordered the Seidio multi function battery charger and the $24.99 battery. Hope my order goes through :)

    I got the Seidio charger the other day. It's the same thing as the ones on eBay that sell for $12.99 INCLUDING 2 extra batteries.

    Did you order this? (Took a screenshot in case the auction ended)

    [​IMG]

    This one isn't the same as the Seidio battery charger. The Seidio battery charger has removable charger plates. You can order a new plate if you get a different device.

    I wouldn't mess around with random Chinese batteries from Ebay. Even the ones that say HTC on them might be fake. Batteryboss tests batteries from reputable manufacturer's such as Seidio and Mugen and found they overstated about their mAH ratings. I can only imagine what "surprises" a no name battery will bring.

    My advice is to buy an OEM battery from a reputable merchant like Amazon.
