    I've noticed my OEM-battery outlasts my Hong Kong non-oem batteries by far.

    Would there be any interest for me to conduct a simple test to find out an approximate percentage that the non-oem battery provides in comparison to the OEM battery?

    This test would involve me using Wardrive, an application that uses both wifi and gps to scan and trace wifi access points, so that I could time how long it takes for the battery to die. This is the fastest way that I can possibly drain my battery. My phone would be placed in the same location during both tests .

    Note: this test won't be without variables and cannot be considered 'scientific'
    It can however be used as a rough guideline.

    Here's a link to the Non-OEM battery I will be using (yes I have two of these batteries)

    I don't have the results yet.

    I'm not affiliated with the sellers at all, sorry to give that impression.

    I just wanted to show exactly what batteries I would be using for the test.

    Hiphop, I bought 2 for around $12. I always have them with me. I've used them quite a few times (basketball games after school that don't allow me to be home until midnight, and times when I forget to charge overnight).

    Not the greatest battery life, but they work in a pinch.

    I'm starting the test with the OEM battery at 6:00pm central time (approximately 6 minutes from now)

    Started test at 5:55 central time. (got impatient)

    Turned on Wifi (connected to access point about 20 feet away), turned on bluetooth (connected to nothing), turned on GPS (used with Wardrive), turned on autosync, turned on 100% brightness with the screen never timing out. Turned on wardrive, left it up an running while setting on my nightstand.

    I'm expecting the battery to last 1-2 hours with this much stress on it.

    30 minutes in, started streaming music via last.fm at full volume.

    I know this is adding more variables, but it's still going to give me a rough timeframe.

    The current test will take too long.

    Exploding batteries is exactly what I'm scared of. Especially since my droid gets real hot when charging. Still, I ordered a charger and battery combo for 10 bucks. I figure the charger is worth that much.

    Careful, I've had problems with my ipod touch with non-oem chargers affecting the screen sensitivity. The voltage is not as regulated and occasionally the device will try to ground itself through your hand. It doesn't hurt but it will hurt the touch screen.

    My device has never gotten hotter than just a little bit warm except when I tried overclocking to 1.2ghz and running the TV.com app to stream television shows. Even then, it was just a little bit toasty. My laptop gets hot enough to leave burns if left on someone's lap.

    Even charging the non-oem battery, it's fine.

    NOTE: my device is not rooted now, so that shouldn't affect the test results.

    Keep in mind the Droid's chip can withstand temperatures up to 97 degrees Celsius (I think I read this somewhere on this forum... ? can somebody confirm/deny this?)

    If you look in the user manual the max recommended temperature is 45C. Keep in mind as you approach 100C water spontaneously converts to vapor, which isn't very healthy for your droid's inner parts.

    Causes everyone knows the Droid is made of liquid water. Sorry couldn't resist. Why would anyone want to get to 97C, that would be so uncomfortable to hold.

    While I don't doubt that high temps are bad for any device, your logic is flawed.

    You say that water will spontaneously convert into water vapor when approaching temperatures of 100 degrees Celsius. Water doesn't even begin to turn into vapor until 100 degrees Celcius. And for water to "spontaneously" convert to vapor, you'd be talking SUPER HOT.
