    My 1700 batteries(2) and charger arrived yesterday. I charged one of the batteries overnight and bumped it. I'll post the usage results later. So far I checked EMs, and downloaded, installed and tested Car locator, GPS status and Locus. (great free apps BTW). No calls. GPS has been on, and it's been an 1:45 off charge, time split between wifi(home) and 4G. The battery is at 90%.
    The batteries are labeled "HTC Merge". The charger seems a bit flimsy but it works and the LED flipped from red to blue upon full charge. I left the stock battery in to charge at home. I haven't tried the USB charge yet-maybe tonight. More later!

    No, it's the same size as the stock battery.
    BTW, I am at 70% now 4 hours total, 1st hour wifi, last 3 hours 4G, I turned off GPS. Mostly standby the last 2 hours.

    Note that this is my first charge for the 1700 battery, and I anticipate it getting better like the stock 1400 battery with a couple more charging cycles.

    Okay, it's 8 hrs now on my first charge and I'm down to 20%. I've been rebooting trying to get Swype back(and tried to reinstall)-I lost it somehow. I was fooling around with Google translator for a while too! :) Hopefully the next charge will get me longer time!

    Thanks for the status updates :)

    I'm probably going to buy the set and sell the charger and the other on eBay since I already have a charger.

    Tagging this thread for future updates. Likely going to buy a Thunderbolt this weekend. Please let us know if these alleged 1700mah batteries are actually an improvement.

    Okay charged and bumped again last night the same 1700 battery after it got down to 15%. Lighter use today, all 4G, a few short phonecalls(under 3 minutes each), some texting, browsing and FaceBook. No downloads or streaming. Now 7 hours at 50%.

    Got to about 9 3/4 hours before I hit the 20% warning. 100% 4G-no streaming. Let's see what tomorrow brings! I may try something different-like manually retrieving EMs and checking FaceBook.

    Sounds good... keep the updates coming. I'm still checking the thread and am interested.

    If you were only using one of the batteries and didn't want the second one, I would float you some money on Paypal for it.
