    Hi xytkhi, welcome to AF! :)

    I've moved your post to the Desire HD section (you'd posted in the Original Desire section, easy mistake to make though :))

    In my humble opinion, I would steer clear. I've found that "higher capacity" 3rd Party batteries will seem to look/work better than stock initially, but after a short period of time, charge will drop off rapidly and the capacity will be worse than standard.

    There was a thread here a while back that mentioned Andida batteries specifically. It was probably a 60-40 split in favour of those who didn't find they offered anything more than HTC's offering.

    There's no harm in giving them a go, but I wouldn't expect much, sorry.

    Any thoughts on the 1500 mAh Mugen battery?

    To be honest ral, I've only ever used the stock battery and (other than once or twice, due to the ROM I flashed) have had pretty good experieces. I did think about getting an aftermarket "long life" battery but, from what I read about the majority of them, it just doesn't seem worth it... they all sound to give better impressions to start with but, as El Presidente says, quickly drop on their performance.

    Might as well stuck with stock, the Mugen cost almost twice as much as stock.

    How long have you had it? What sort of performance are you getting?

    No. I am on my second stock battery. Was thinking of having this shipped a few months ago, but I just got another battery at the HTC Service Center.

    The majority of people have reported the same sort of reults as EP said above with 3rd party batteries :)

    This is the first one to come up on Google after a search for a new battery for my HTC HD Desire so i thought i would update this thread.
    I had my phone for about 2 years and would be lucky to make it from 9am to 4 pm. It has never made it over 24hr from new that i can remember.
    Was going to go for a stock battery for about

    Fair comment Securityman, if it's working out better than stock for you, that's great :).

    Re. Samsung Vs. HTC, I'd say HTC's have better build quality, but it's a matter of opinion. I know plenty people who prefer Samsung over HTC.
