    Default How are eBay Batteries Compared to Samsung?

    Was looking to purchase a extra battery for my new note 2, and a spare charger for it so I could just replace without having to charge the battery in the phone everytime etc, I came across the samsung ones for like 15$ on eBay shipped, but then I scrolled down and saw, 3 WHATEVER BRAND 3100mah or w/e it is batteries and wall charger for 14$ shipped, is this BS or is this worth it? Wondering if anyone had any experience with these off brand batteries in the note 2 yet? I don't want something thats going to last me a couple hours vs. the samsung one that lasts a full day easy.

    Thanks for the input in advance.

    They suck,
    I bought what looked like a Samsung battery for my Note I and it had to be fake cause it did not last as long as the genuine batteries.
    Probably 50% as long.
    My advice is to get the original from a reputable seller like ShopAndroid or Samsung directly.

    Ok, thanks for the advice, I actually found 2 batteries with a charger that has great reviews on Amazon for like 25-30$ so I might try my chances, just heard it takes 10 hours to charge 1 battery which sucks... But we'll see. Most I would have on me at one time would be 1 battery anyway extra, just for the weekends and stuff, will give it a shot. Thanks!

    I bought these on ebay. ..

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/261121795515...84.m1497.l2649

    They last about 80% of the stock battery. The charger does take about 10 hours to charge a battery but I never even come close to using an entire battery in 10 hours on my Note 2.

    I went ahead and ordered mine directly from Samsung, I have not had much luck in the past with the cheaper batteries.
    I'm loving the charger with built in stand, comes in handy for movie watching.

    I tried to Qcell batteries from Amazon. The battery seems okay, certainly cheap. But the charger give a very loose fit to the battery so much so that 1 of the batteries falls out and won't take a charge. Ugh!

    So I used the discount offered by Samsung to note 2 purchasers to buy 2 Samsung batteries. I like them much better. Unfortunately the charging dock is on backorder but I'll get that when it's available.

    However, I'm finding that I much prefer an external charger, such as those by Morphy, so that I don't have to power down my phone to get a boost.

    FWIW, I'd worry more about the likelihood of physical damage (excessive heat / over-charging) from using no-name batteries.

    Check out Anker batteries on Amazon. They are better quality. The ebay ones are around 25 % less on Mah than they typically advertise. They still work well as a second battery but won't last like the stock battery.

    The Anker batteries are great and perform slightly better than stock.
