This battery has been performing very well so far. The additional 200mAh over the stock battery does make a difference. I get a good few hours extra out of it, making the difference between having to charge during the day or not.
Remember the battery needs conditioning on first use so the phone should be completely charged whilst switched off and then allowed to drain completely before the 2nd charge. If your Hero is rooted don't forget to wipe the battery stats from the recovery menu before the first charge cycle.

Battery was delivered quickly and professionally packaged.
I got slightly worried when the HTC Hero battery cover wouldn't clip back on properly, it turned out that the old battery had deformed so much it had damaged the plastic clips on the cover !!
Removed the damaged clips, now it fits and holds charge perfectly.
It has instilled a new lease of life into an ageing Hero!
