    Default Awesome Battery deal on Amazon

    I purchased this deal for only $40. It comes with 2 HTC 1800 mah batteries and charger. The batteries are about 1mm thicker and makes the door fit a bit tighter but they work very well and is a welcomed upgrade from stock. Plus you always have a battery on standby. After using these batteries for a week now and messing around. I can surely say I have noticed increased life and usability.

    Amazon.com: Sprint HTC EVO 4G 2x1800 mAh Battery Longer life than OEM+ Wall Travel Dock USB Charger also for Verizon Incredible Droid Touch Pro2 My Touch Slide: Cell Phones & Accessories

    These are not knock off batteries.

    I was able to get 1 Day and 1hr out of one battery with a few phone call and text messages

    Yes. The charger will work for any battery compatible with the DINC or X since they use the same type. As far as my awake time, I don't recall what it was. Sorry. I don't have a screen shot of that.

    I bought these in august and they last about 35% longer than the stock battery. Its nice to have 3 batteries now. When I know I'll be out for an extended period of time, I just throw 2 spares in my wifes purse just in case.

    Anyone have a picture of what these batteries look like once in the phone? I've read that they are a little bigger than the stock battery.

    It doesn't look any different than stock. You just have to press a tab bit harder to snap the tabs for the back cover of the phone. Thats all. Looks no different than stock.

    I purchased this as well and received a single stock 1300 mah battery instead. Checked my order confirmation and it stated 2 HTC 1800 mah batteries and charger. Has anyone else had an issue with their order?

    There had to be a mix up. Just call the vendor that distributed it and let them know. I'm sure they will be glad to send you out the correct order.

    Slight correction to the OP post that "these are not knock off batteries" so that folks don't get confused
    These are aftermarket batteries and not HTC unless the seller CHICHITEC changed where they are getting their batteries in the last 2 months (bought mine end of October from CHICHITEC) however they do work great!

    Nope, I did contact the vendor and they did not have the product. They offered to refund me if I returned the battery, or to refund a portion of the cost and I could keep the stock battery.

    Well... I risked it and went for it. We'll see if I have the bait and switch problem too.

    Ok, it arrived today, two 1800mAh batteries (at least that what it says on the label) and the charger. Plugged it in and charging as I type.

    At the very least I got what they claimed they were selling. Now I just have to find out the true battery life I get.

    Edit: I saw a website printed on the battery, htcexpress.com. And look at that. You can get the two batteries with no charger for $35 (without tax/shipping) or just one of them for $20! I didn't really have to buy the two batteries and charger. It's a good thing my brother is now going to get a Dinc, so he can use my spare 1800mAh battery.

    just got it in the mail. bumpcharged it, and now trying to drain it down. from the reports, it takes a few charges to set it in motion. will post an update after a few charge cycles, and a day or two of normal usage.

    Okay, so it was longer than a few days. Sue me.

    Anyways, the battery is great. Through a typical 18 hour day of what I feel is moderate usage, I am still at no less than 35 percent when I plug it in for the night. And that's with no bump charge. It took a couple charges for it to settle, but I am very happy overall.

    I just ordered this battery deal from amazon. 29.59 total for the two batteries. After reading as many reviews on amazon and here, I think these should give my girlfriends incredible more than 6 hours of life. Giving the 2nd one to my brother for his birthday since his incredible doesnt live long either.
