    I have 5 of the Ankers from Amazon. They seem to be about the same as the Motorola batteries. I'm not sure, but the Anker may not deteriorate quite as fast.

    I am running latest G60, and usually use 2 batteries per day.

    Just call virgin and tell them that your battery won't hold a charge and have them replace it.

    I got the Hyperion one when my charger port took a crap on me and they work great. Battery life lasts through the day from 6 am to 6 pm with steady usage. It works for me cuz it comes with 2 batteries so one can charge while the other is being used.

    I ordered one of those and have had it for about a week or so, so far. In general, I would say it is maybe a tiny bit more battery life than the original, but that is comparing it to my original that was 1 year old. I haven't noticed a huge improvement in battery life, although I would say that it has lasted as long as the original and for the $5 or $6 I paid on eBay, it was worth it.

    Remarkably the only place that I have found a Motorola oem battery is through Virgin, all others are 3rd party so ymmv.

    I just got my battery but I do not own the phone anymore. If anyone is interested in a extended battery let me know.
