I have an HTC EVO 3D 4G, and my original battery has turned to shit. I've seen Laza Zcell 3460's on Amazon, but they are backorder. Plus, I don't know if I want a hump in the backplate. I'm open to suggestions.

Does that phone have an NFC chip in the battery, and if so do you need it?

For official HTC batteries, I would check Amazon and various cell carriers (not necessarily yours, I bought a battery for my VZW Galazy Nexus from Sprint because they were half off). If you don't care about the batteries being official, Seidio makes decent ones.

If you have time to wait, or even if not, set a slickdeals alert so that it emails you if the batteries go on sale. It pays to pick up a spare if it's on sale.

No to the NFC, don't care about "Official" and found Seidio a bit pricey in comparison.

I did check eBay, and saw many brands that I couldn't possibly have heard of. I guess I'm looking for reputable brands from "mostly" reputable sources. Or, I'll just wait a week until the Zcells are back.

Regardless, I appreciate the helps.

I appreciate it, but @oandapartycock turned me onto Anker a few weeks ago, so I got a 2-pack w/charger for $30 at amazon. Everything's peachy.

If you are good with a soldering iron you can always break open the battery pack a replace the cells yourself.
