FireworksFirst of all we just wanted to say thanks to all that entered our competition to win a 3200mAh Mugen Power battery for the HTC Hero. The number of entries certainly exceeded our expectations, it just goes to show how many are looking for an increase in runtime of their phone.

To decide the winner, we used a random number generator from and picked up a number. The lucky number came in at 327, which means UKAS is the winner! The goods will be on their way shortly. Many congrats to him and thanks again for entering. Don’t be too disappointed if you didn’t win, we hope to have some more compo’s in the near future!

Update: To alleviate the disappointment of not winning, Mugen-Power has been kind enough to offer a 12.5% discount coupon that will expire on 30 June 2010. Just enter the code ‘HTCHEROBLOG’ at checkout and you’ll automatically get a 12.5% discount on all batteries including HTC Hero and Sprint Hero ones! Please note that you will have to register in the webshop to use this code.

Did you register an account in the WebShop before hand? Strange why it wouldn’t work.

Let me know if you’re still having difficulties and I’ll get in touch with the company.

Sorry, my fault.
I was trying to register during the checkout, not before.

I got the email below supposedly from these guys telling me that I’d won. Looks pretty real and convincing except I didn’t actually enter the competition!
