    ok i know people say dont trust no other battery but the stock battery. well the stock battery is just to damm small plain and simple. and add in the battery life well we need a bigger battery.

    well i found a deal for 24.99 plus shipping it comes out to 27.49
    my friend ordered the gorilla extended battery and cover for his htc evo 4g and im telling you its a high quality battery and the cover fits better than the stock cover.

    its a deal the price is great and its almost twice as big.

    HTC Thunderbolt Extended Life Battery

    It's only a good deal if it works!

    I posted this on a different site but thought I would share my experience here as well...

    I haven't bought many aftermarket batteries so I don't know if this is normal but the casing on the battery was flimsy and the sticker was misaligned. Of course, if the battery operates as advertised, those are just cosmetic issues that you won't see once the battery door is in place. The real problem became apparent when I actually installed the battery and restarted my phone. For some reason, probably an issue with the quality or alignment of the contacts on the inside of the new battery door, I lost my 4G LTE connection. I swapped the extended battery with the stock HTC battery 3 times and each time the extended battery was installed, I lost my 4G connection and the phone displayed the 1X icon. (See pics below.) Obviously, the battery is going back to Gorilla Gadgets.

    For an accessory that should be "plug and play", I think swapping the extended battery and the stock battery 3 times (restarting the phone each time) would be sufficient to show that there was something wrong with the battery I received. But, since it's apparently not, you should know that I also restarted my phone 2 additional times with the extended battery installed with the same result (no 4G). I did not play with the settings (in the case of replacing a battery, I don't think that should be necessary) and when I contacted Gorilla Gadgets about the issue, they did not offer a fix. I will also say that Gorilla Gadgets was easy to work with and the return process was easy, although I did have to pay for return shipping.

    If the battery cover is misaligned, that is most likely your problem. The battery cover doubles as the antenna for LTE.

    well sad to say ive ran into the same problem. after recieving my replacement refub thunderbolt i switched over the gorilla battery and door and i also noticed i had no 3g/4g but i only had 1x that would cut out. so i remember the problem from above and i tried to reseat the gorrilla battery door to no help i then tried top press it in on those areas with the contacts and no help but when i replace the batt. and door with the stock ones 3g/4g fire up and hit strong with no problems. ive looked at all three doors together (stock,gorilla,htc extended) and they all seem to add up as to the placement of the copper connections on the inside of the door. i dont why but the gorilla door doesnt seem to make as good as connection as the stock door and htc extended battery door. AND IN NO WAY IS IT THE BATTERY! i know this because i recently got the verizon/htc extended battery and door and i use the gorrila battery with it and it works great. so all in all ni have two 2750 extended batteries for my thunderbolt so i carry and extra in my lunch box just in case.
