    After reading reviews,they both are supposedly "Genuine" ,so the link you gave me is cheaper so i think ill be taking two. But that company (AcessoryOne) has 90% overall feedback,but the negatives was for something else.Now ill just need a WALL charged to charge these and ill be set.

    And for the two listings,that is weird...but i think because one describes it as a DROID phone battery and the other as just the battery alone...since it also works with the Moto Cliq...just a guess.

    I bought my spare Droid battery on Amazon for UNDER $7 from the seller "THE OEM SHOP" and even left them 5 star feedback!

    I received it a few days earlier than their estimated delivery time (which was about 5 days from my purchase.

    So far I can't find a single thing wrong with the battery. I have used it for about 2 weeks now, switching it with my original battery maybe every couple of days.

    The only thing I can find different about the battery is a single serial number on the battery, but I believe each battery has a unique serial number anyways!

    Seidio sells one that gives you the ability to charge a battery while the phone is away or to charge the separate battery and the one in the phone at the same time. You can see it at Seidio - Your Single Source for Premium Smartphone Accessories

    What's the difference between a "china knock off" and the genuine article that sells for under $10 and says "Cell Origin China Finished in China"?

    The second link says the battery is a 1300 mAh, but my battery is a 1390 mAh. Hardly noticeable, but why go down?

    For one,it has HALF the charge as the battery you probably have on your phone right now.After like 2 weeks the battery will die faster and faster,you might even get one that starts smoking/burning.Don't buy charger/batteries from china unless you know they are 100% real. I just bought a Dell charger on ebay,came from china,2nd day I had it started making noise,then a burning smell came out of it.It looked completly real but obviously wasn't.

    Those are 100% fake...they come from Hong Kong and cost 4$ impossible that they are real,and if you look at the picture on the Amazon and eBay links,they are all fake :( open your battery cover and read the last word "Bateria" on all these links the picture says "de" as the last word...those are fake and not genuine.

    Batteries from Hong Kong, why're they so bad?

    one question about these fake batteries from Hong Kong; even though they aren't OEM, do they still hold a charge and do what they're purpose is? What exactly is so bad about these batteries?

    I understand that since they're OEM they're performance may not live up to the stock battery, but do they still hold a charge?

    Very good point,I will be buying probably that one or one similiar that is around 4$ and compare/test and post results.If anyone has any ideas on how I can test other than counting hours it lasts (use would make the test not fair) can post up how to do it.I'm sure it will be half than OEM battery or even hold up to an OEM battery at first,but die slowly as weeks pass.Who knows,my phone might even explode.I will be buying it later today.

    I made the mistake of buying "Droid" replacement batteries from ebay. I saw that they had good feedback and figured it was 2 batteries for under $15 how could I go wrong? Well, you absolutely get what you pay for. They last less than half the time of the original. Almost completely worthless.

    Since your posting under my post you should be aware that these are battery chargers I ordered, not batteries. And FWIW there is nothing wrong with the 8.00 batteries you get at Amazon.

    Deals can be found. Good deals. Some get lucky, some don't.

    I didn't buy it yet,but when you receive it can you post back on how good it is? :) Like if it gets really hot/charging time.

    Hmmm I Told you guys...i guess i wont buy the eBay ones...I might go ahead and buy the Amazon ones and test them out for a while.

    :eek::eek: Did you get to keep the old one? Knowing my store...they will "Troubleshoot the problem" like suggesting things like "Deleting apps" "Turning down backlight" and stuff...and at the end,make me BUY a new one.Are you in your 30 Days?
