Beware When Buying This Product If You Are Expecting To Receive The HTC Evo 4G Standard Battery,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HTC Standard Battery for HTC EVO 4G (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Do not order this product from the "SellPhoneStop" if you are expecting to receive the HTC Evo 4G Standard Battery (P/N: 35H00123-22M). They will instead send you the HTC Droid Incredible Standard Battery (P/N: 35H00134-02M). While the seller may try to convince you otherwise as both of these batteries will work in either phone, these are definitely NOT the same battery so do not be fooled. I actually have the Droid Incredible (not the HTC EVO 4G) and its standard battery (P/N: 35H00134-02M) is only a 1300mAh battery while the HTC EVO 4Gs standard battery (P/N: 35H00123-22M) is a 1500mAh battery. Just as an FYI to DI owners, if you do a little research on the internet you will find out very quickly that the battery which HTC markets as the "extended battery" for the DI has exactly the same P/N (35H00123-22M) as the standard battery for the HTC Evo 4G (i.e. they are one and the same). Despite the fact that the batteries are identical, you will find that if the battery is being labeled as the HTC EVO 4G standard battery the price will be around $15 while if it is being labeled as the DI "extended battery" the price will be closer to $30. Just in case you are still skeptical, on a personal note, I have had the DI for nearly a year now and have been using the HTC EVO 4G standard battery(P/N: 35H00123-22M), which I ordered from another online retailer at that time, in it since the second week I had it. It has worked flawlessly and provided a substantial improvement in battery life compared to the Droid Incredible's standard battery (P/N: 35H00134-02M). This battery however, I was actually ordering for my brother who just got a DI.
Going back to my product/seller review, I ordered this product from the "SellPhoneStop". After receiving the item, I checked the P/N and realized I had actually received the Droid Incredible Standard Battery (P/N: 35H00134-02M) instead of the the HTC Evo 4G Standard Battery (P/N: 35H00123-22M). When I contacted the seller regarding the mix-up they initially tried to tell me it was the same battery (which I'm sure many people would have just believed as the battery would actually work in their phone too) however, as I explained above they are definitely NOT the same battery. After realizing that I knew what I was talking about, the customer service representative finally said "that is all we have and all we ship for that ASIN". So basically they openly admitted that they don't even carry this battery! Following this, I left the seller negative feedback (which was obviously justified) given the fact that I felt it was pretty shady that they are selling this product as the HTC Evo 4G Standard Battery (P/N: 35H00123-22M) when they openly admitted to me that they don't even carry it! Upon learning that I had left the negative feedback, the seller contacted my via phone and email and was extremely rude and condescending to me in asking me to remove the feedback. That being said, the seller did agree to give me a full refund for the product as well as for my return shipping charges and I have subsequently removed my negative feedback as I am a man of my word and told the person who contacted me I would as long as I did indeed receive a full refund for the product as well as for my return shipping charges. So buy this product at your own risk and if you do make sure when you receive it that you check the P/N to ensure that you have in fact receive the HTC Evo 4G Standard Battery (P/N: 35H00123-22M) and NOT the HTC Droid Incredible Standard Battery (P/N: 35H00134-02M)!
My apologies to those of you who do not own a DI and were simply looking for a product review on this battery, however I felt obliged to share this information which I have learned with other DI owner's who might be interested in purchasing this battery.

I've tried ordering this product three different times, and they have never sent the correct battery!

As JRC has written, it is totally true - these are NOT the same batteries and WILL NOT work in the HTC EVO 4G Standard Battery. Save your money and be careful when ordering.

I'm grateful you took the time to post this. I was just about to purchase a battery from these guys, and I don't want to be disappointed with the wrong stuff. I'll save my money and buy it from someone else. Does anybody know a better place to get it from?

What about the 35H00123-25M? This is the battery I received. I searched the battery on google, and all of the postings came up that it is 1500 mAH battery for the Evo 4G. Even a New Egg result popped up (which I feel is a reputable source). I'm wondering if this is a later edition of the standard Evo 4G battery?
Thanks for all your good info!
