    Does anyone make a charger for the battery alone like the Instinct use to have? I loved being able to have two batterys and being able to charge one while using the other and it was small enough to take with you and used USB for it's charging source.

    Seidio makes one, along with a same-size higher capacity battery. It charges via USB or wall plug. Works great.

    I just decided to try the deal for 2 batteries plus a charger for $11.49

    Even if they don't run for as long as expected, it's not a big deal at that price.

    Yes! As stated above, I have this combo (for about 3 months now), and have been very happy with both the battery and the charger. I can't tell the difference between the stock battery and this one in regards to duration between charges...or anythng other than cosmetics, for that matter. $10... how can you go wrong?

    Just got mine today and fully charged the battery that came with it. Put it in the phone an hour ago and all seems well so far. Will update results in a few days.

    So the batteries and charger arrived. They came in individual antistatic bags. The wall charger came in it's own little box. The batteries say that they are replacements for the HTC Touch Pro 2, but the Hero shares it's battery with the Touch Pro 2. I put one of the batteries in just to test it. The battery was 75% charged. It reported it's charge perfectly fine. It charged perfectly fine while in the phone and the other battery charged quite well in the wall charger. The wall charger also has a usb port so you can charge your phone and a battery at the same time. For $11.49, (including shipping), You can't beat this package. I highly recommend it. I have yet to try charging the original HTC battery in the charger, but I'll update this post as soon as I do.

    Unfortunately, I haven't seen this package, at this price, anywhere but ebay. My order went through just fine and arrived on time. I can't speak for other retailers, but sak.gaming did well by my last order.

    I've had my Hong Kong charger/battery for a few weeks now and it's worked flawlessly so far. Can't tell the difference between the HTC battery and the one that came with the charger. Best $10 I spent in a long time.
