not as good as the htc extended battery
on August 11, 2011
i had gotten the original htc extended battery, and that one blew me away at how great it was and how long it lasts. i got this as having a backup, just to be on the safe side.
sadly, this one runs down as fast as the stock battery with no power saving apps being used. sure it lasts longer, but it'll drop down from 100% to 95% with no use other than running a 5 minute countdown timer, and by lunchtime at work, it'll be in the mid to low 80s.
the original htc extended battery stayed at 100% until just before lunch (with the same exact usage) and is now at 90% 2 hours later. not to mention, the original one was $17 cheaper. that may not be a lot, but to me, it is.
also, the battery cover door works in covering the battery and housing the antennas, but it kept clicking like it was loose for me, therefore, i'm using the cover that came with the htc battery.
