    Hmm. I have never seen that before and have only heard of the 2150mAh that's being made in the red interior color. The only gripe would be for that price, you'd be better off paying 10-20 more dollars for the 2150mAh one, or buying a TP2 battery for half the price

    Thinking.......maybe the Inc should have came with that battery instead....just maybe. Or they could make an extra $50 instead. Either way. :cool:

    I am currently running a 1500mah that I got from ebay. It is the Touch pro 2 aka TP2 that was listed at batteryboss.org with shipping it is 15$. Seems to be better than the stock as I am able to make it though the day on a single charge, medium use.

    I'm confused (more than usual) but everyone says the TP2 fits. Ok, yes, you are able to put it inside the phone and it works but I've seen a photo of where it was supposedly a TP2 battery and the battery cover does not completely close. There is like a 1mm or so of gap. Is this true and is this what you guys refer to as still fitting?

    No reason to buy this battery when a TP2 battery is only 20 bucks or cheaper.

    I just got my tp2 batter, it fits but the batteryncover doesn't close as well as it does with the stock battery. It's barely noticeable, but enough where I probably won't use the battery on a daily basis.

    I have the TP2 battery in my Incredible, and I think what everyone is referring to when they say that it "fits" is that the battery cover completely "clicks" in when you close it... There is definitely that small gap on the sides that you see in the pictures, but my red/black gradient hard case still fits perfectly so this is a non-issue... If you use any sort of case I would recommend purchasing the TP2 battery because its half the price, and the added bulk will not effect your phone fitting into its case.

    Thanks guys. That's still a bummer tho. I sometimes work in desert type areas and I'd like a good seal in mine. Now I wonder if the Eris battery fits perfectly.

    I ordered the Seidio 1750 battery. It only cost me $34, total. It got a lot of good reviews..so why not? Lol

    Letting everyone knows that orders the seidio 1750 battery, the back cover on the Inc will snap closed, but there is a very small gap on one edge of the Inc. I noticed it after I had the battery installed. It's at the top edge of the phone.

    Just to be sure, I took out the 1750 and installed the stock batter again. No gap after snapping the cover closed on any side if the phone.

    I'm using the 1750mah and my cover is completely closed with no gaps. Not sure what the problem with yours is.

    The gap is so small, you may or may not notice it. It's there, you just aren't seeing it.

    Who are you to say what another person is or isn't seeing? If it's that small, maybe you're imagining things.

    If it's that small, maybe it's just shitty build quality on your phone :D

    Can you by chance take pictures of your phone with another camera? Let's judge.

    Have you already posted pics of your phone so we can see it? If not, can you take pics and post them? I want to see.

    Cool. Thank you. I'm curious as to how big, if at all, this gap is. I hope the other guy can take pics of his phone as well. We could compare at that point.

    Its there and it has nothing to do with build quality.

    Actually, the gap is slightly smaller than the gap between your ears.

    Like I said, it's small enough so it probably won't bother most people. If you didn't look close enough you probably wouldn't notice it. The reason I noticed it was because I can just see the red inside of the phone along the edge.

    Seidio knows about it. I called them after I received the battery. In fact, I had the same problem when it was installed in my Eris. Anyone that has the 1750, you can see the battery isn't physically the same. The edges are rounded on the stock battery for one. Secondly, the 1750 is a hair thicker than the stock battery.

    Like I said, the cover snaps on, but the gap is there.
