    Default extended batteries

    Has anyone seen any quality extended / larger capacity batteries yet? Battery life is not what I was hoping it would be coming from my Note3.

    Quality I don't know,but eBay has some Chinese supposed 3500mah batteries and its only 20$ for 2plus a charger so even if they are only just as good you still can't lose at that price

    I just bought a couple LG OEM batteries, and I keep them charged up and ready to go. I am a fairly heavy user. So, there isn't a phone out there that will male it all day. I tried the HTC One M8. Great phone, but I found myself tethered to a cord for half of the day.

    Yeah I saw those. I was looking for something bigger. I had an Anker with my S4 and it was awesome.

    3500mah would do nicely and then have the 3000mah as a spare or just buy two 3500mah but would like them to come from a recognised name rather than China knock offs.

    I've had it since launch day with AT&T, so 8 days. I averaged 5 hours talk and 3 hours screen time, plus other normal activity and usually had at least 50% left after a full day on my Note3. My G3 is having to be charged throughout the day. For example, yesterday I topped off the battery at 11am and had less than 2 hours talk and less then 2 hours screen time and I hit 18% at midnight.

    This screen is the killer IMO. I'm not wanting to give up the phone, but I am willing to deal with a thicker phone to give me power without worry.

    I will totally deal with a thicker phone (this thing is super thin imo) for some extra battery life. Not that I am complaining about the current life so far...

    A nice 3800mah extended would be great.

    I don't usually trust the quality of those cheap batteries... Sometimes the performance is weak, even if the capacity is greater. Would like to hear back!

    I have the LG battery charger to go with them. I charge them up, and then I just take them with me in my laptop bag.

    I may regret it, but I bought the "3500 Chinese Super Long LIfe Batteries That Are A Miracle From The Heavens". When they show up in a month, I'll let you know how happy I am.

    Just ordered a 3800mah misc chinese battery from ebay for $12. Supplier is "Alex NLD".

    Once I receive it, I will post results. My hope is that it will be at least as good as the stock 3000mah battery. From what i've seen from other posts regarding these chinese batteries, some will exceed expectations and outperform OEM batteries, but many will not.
