Ive had an idea of placing the original HTC Desire battery into the Desire HD. I dont own the HD yet, but im considering a purchase soon, but not too confident about the battery life with the smaller battery capacity. I know that the 92nm processor technology and the new froyo update require less energy to run the device, but i just want to know, what you guys think about the idea. Can anything go wrong from the technical standpoint? Can it possibly damage the device?

Can anything go wrong by installing the wrong battery in a phone? Absolutely! In theory if the designers of the phone happened to use a similar sized battery with the positive and negative terminals reversed you could very possibly french fry the phone.
