    Well, just got home and popped in the 2750. mAh battery and the widget does show 2750. Makes me wonder if I just paid for a charger and a couple of stock batteries?

    Unfortunately, from the reviews I've seen of the batteries online, even Seido's, they rarely seem to be real, unless they are physically bigger. Not saying yours are fake or not, but it doesn't look good considering this app. Hopefully they weren't too expensive and you still ended up with additional batteries.

    Let us know what they say. I've already left them good feedback on ebay. Thinking about shooting them an email.

    They have responded quickly and claim they've gotten no feed back on this issue and offered me a refund. I told them I want at least close to advertised 1700mah battery not a refund.

    Lol at a widget accurately calculating capacity. There's a reason you can manually put in the battery capacity.

    I'm not sure about the accuracy of this widget, and may try hard boots to see what comes up. Although there may be false advertising about the 1700 capacity, they work at least as long as the stock, appear to be genuine HTC batteries for the MyTouch 4G and merge, and cheaper than ThunderBolt stock batteries. So far for me, the pluses outweigh the negatives. I'm going to check out the amazon listing and reviews. Thanks for posting it!

    I too have purchased these from Amazon and even though they are advertising them as 1700 when they arrived they clearly said 1500 mAh. In addition the black one says its for the Merge. I have submitted a complaint for false advertisement and I want my money back. I get no better battery life out of these than I do with my stock battery. I just refuse to get that huge extended battery as I really like the sleek look of the phone and do not want to change that.

    I purchased the 1600mah Seidio battery that's made for the MyTouch4g. I've noticed improvements in battery life so far. I'm on my 6th full charge since I purchased it. It lasted me 27 hours over the weekend with light use and still had 25% left. Today at work, however, I'm at roughly 50% and have been off the charger for 6 hours. Much more usage and syncing of company email.

    Anyone know a better way to test the battery I'm not convinced the battery monitor widget is accurate. Maybe denial that I got a stock battery but I would like solid proof that this company is selling stocks as 1700 mah

    Yeah, the "Battery Monitor" app widget reads my Galaxy Tab as having a 1200mah battery. . . It reads my 1600mah battery in my Tbolt as a 1350mah as well.

    I completely agree that it is incorrect in reading a battery's capacity.

    Not to burst your bubble, but there was a guy who tested Seido batteries as well as several other brands that claimed to sell extended batteries and nearly all were less than they claimed and the ones same size as stock were not larger capacity. These weren't Thunderbolt batteries, so who knows, but evidence seems to point that these likely don't offer more capacity.
