Delivery was prompt and the item was as described so full marks to the seller.
The extended battery life actually allows the HTC Desire to be used all day and removes the frustration of having to continuously conserve power.
The battery alone will fit into a standard HTC Desire charging stand and charge simultaneously with the phone so again a major plus.
The downsides are:
- it makes the phone quite heavy.
- swapping causes continuous wear on the case clips.
- it will not fit into a standard case with the battery and back on.
- it will not fit into a standard HTC Desire charging stand whilst the battery is still fitted to the phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all 22 July 2011
By Dave
Yes it is a little bulky for use as the main battery but I bought this as a battery I can use for camping. Life is at least double the standard HTC so can't really fault it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb replacement battery 9 May 2012
By M. Bond
Verified Purchase
The battery in this product is excellent - I bought it to replace my original (dying) offical HTC battery. Originally, I could make about 36 hours with the HTC battery (recently reduced to about 1 hour), and that is under "light use". With this battery, I can easily make it through 2 and a bit days without running out of battery, and that under "normal use" - update sync every 3 hours, some gaming, some videos, music, plent yof web browsing and IM, and a few pictures here and there. So the battery is a 5* product (I don't care that it's big, I knew that it would be, it's a trade off)

The replacement back cover is of lower quality - the fit isn't quite visually perfect and it looks "not the right size" in places. Seems to be well sealed against dust despite this, except for the camera hole which, oddly, doesn't have any kind of plastic covering - so the real camera is exposed to the world. Despite this, the material is pleasant to touch and sturdy, and there's an unmentioned benefit of the bulkiness - the phone can now stand (solidly) on its side for watching videos/displaying an alarm clock/etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not without compromise 24 April 2011
Verified Purchase
Battery life is greatly extended, from ~1day if lucky (with the original battery), to 3 days! So in that respect, it's really awesome. Trouble is the extended cover really does compromise the feel and look of the phone. I'm glad i bought it, cause having two batteries in itself is handy and for a tenner, this extended battery will be useful for travelling, and other situations where I might want to browse/play games etc and will be without a charger for a while. For me, its not an everyday battery as I hoped it would be, cause I just can't sacrifice the look and feel of my phone to this degree.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 25 Nov. 2011
bought it for my htc desire. the original battery use to drain out with in 9 hours of normal usage or 4 to 6 hours of heavy usage ended up carrying a charger which was annoying as it takes couple of hours to charge. so bought this product which makes the mobile a bit thicker but i get good 12 hours during heavy usage and upto 16 to 18 hours on normal usage so enough for the whole day. its been 8 months so far no issues getting the same performance. came on time and in good packaging.

I bought this so that I could extend the operating time of my HTC Desire when using certain apps. I use an app called Endomondo when I go cycling or play golf and it tracks where I have been using GPS and gives lots of other useful data such as distance travelled, speed etc. With the standard battery after a round of golf my battery indicator would be on yellow getting ready to conk out so the extended battery life really helps. OK, it does make the phone more bulky but it's very easy to swap batteries and covers if you want to go back to the standard slimline Desire, I actually find the phone easier to hold with the bigger battery. For the price this is a good backup to the standard battery when out and about with no access to a charger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Battery Big Phone 12 Sept. 2011
By Tony W
I got this Battery because the Desire is a power hungry beast. It takes a couple of charge cycles for it to start working as described but does significantly extend the life and usefulness of this great phone. The downside is that it nearly doubles the width of the phone so all the cases and desktop chargers no longer fit. I would not be without this!!!

To begin with the negatives, the phone becomes almost twice as thick and it is a a bit heavier. It does not look very sleek and the phone does not fit any more into the protective case I used before.

But what you get for this is at least double the standard battery life with similar usage and the feeling that you can use all the features of your phone freely without a constant worry about the battery. In the beginning I was using it only for some long bike rides, but after some time it has become my primary battery and I don't care about the negatives. I can browse as much as I want, use the hotspot, play games, have gps always on and other things and still get a whole day out of it.

For those interested in treking cycling etc, I recently recorded a track with endomondo for about 10 hours in airplane mode and I have used it for ofline navigation with software like locus and screen almost always on for about 5 hours without the battery dying. I am not sure how much more I could get.
