Extended Battery Options
I've read all the reports on the questionable 3rd party batteries. Question is, Where do we find the best, longest lasting battery for the Evo? Does HTC or any other legitimate company produce a higher capacity, longer lasting battery than that which comes with the phone?
Am I gonna have to plug it in every chance I get at home, at work and in the car?
If I knew for sure, I'd order it today....

I used a Seido 2600mAh extended battery for my Palm pre and it was the best investment for the phone I made. My GF also used on on her Palm Pre as well. Gave me over a day and then some of heavy usage.
With my personal experience with Seido batteries, I'd try one if they offered one for the EVO.

I know what you are saying, but the numbers don't lie..
I don't think there's a way for us consumers to test the actual mAh rating, since we don't have a test bench, but sometimes your mind can make you believe things, because you are trying to justify spending $50 on a battery.
From looking at the chart, ALL the Seidio batteries didn't meet the rated mAh...
I hope it's not true.. Just hope the EVO cells are better.. Since those tests are not for "EVO" batteries.

But the numbers are still there and if that site has any credibility (why would they make this stuff up?), the results are somewhat alarming. With all the talk about counterfeit stuff made in China and elsewhere, how are consumers supposed to tell the real thing from a fake?

last time i tried an aftermarket battery was in my old treo days(600,650,700p). i tried the higher capacity seidio then and i really didnt notice much of an increase at all in length of use.
im really not surprised by the site showing the low test results.
i'm sticking with OEM batteries(super cheap on ebay too, even if most are used).
