    Did not see an answer for this looking around, so my apologies if I missed it somewhere.

    Is there a quality high capacity battery replacement for the S4? I don't want a $10 China generic. I want to pay a bit more for a quality battery.

    Thanks for Any feedback!

    I've read somewhere on this site some used the brand Anker as backup battery. You can research some more.

    As for me, I bought the Samsung Extra Battery Kit. Comes with extra original Samsung Battery. Not bad.

    That isn't an extended battery kit. That is a spare with a stand alone charger.

    I too am looking for a extended capacity battery...

    I am curious about the same thing. I just recently switch to the S4 from the iPhone 5 and now I am looking for a better battery since it seems to only make it about half a day.

    I ordered a Hyperion 5200mAh and it goes multiple days...even when I'm browsing, YouTube, email, texting, listening to Pandora...it's far more than I need.

    I have this product and it is quite good. The back cover fits very nicely. I also have a hyperion case to cover the extended battery because it is too big for my normal case. I used it for a few days and then went back to the original battery and case. There is nothing wrong with the Anker, it fact it is quite good, but I tweeked my S4 and I am getting through the day with it. If I see a need for a day of extra heavy use, or going on a trip, I would switch batteries.

    I just purchased the zerolemon 7500 for 40 bucks off amazon. Ill be sure to let you guys know how the battery functions after a couple days. As for the anker battery after another week of heavy usage still an amazing battery for people looking to extra heavy usage.

    The zerolemon one im put to the test because when i tour i dont always have an outlet !
    let you guys know soon !

    For the battery, i have been using a 3800mAh external backup battery , considering my GS4 using frequency, quite enough for me ,hhh...no need for higher capacity,i think..

    I have just ordered the ZeroLemon 7500mah battery and also the 3000mah battery! The 3000 is the same size as the stock battery but does not have NFC which is no biggie for me as I have never used it!

    Looking forward to getting them and I will let you guys know how they perform!

    I ordered from amazon.com to the UK. Cost about 48 in total

    Thanks for the feedback! 1.5-3.5 days moderate to heavy use is awesome. Can't wait to receive mine. I just ordered from Amazon with additional $14+ shipping fee to Asia.

    Doesn't that massive battery add to the bulk of the phone?

    I have had the Seidio 4500 battery for a month and I must say I am disappointed considering the cost. I never have more than 2 hours screen time. Off charge at 7:30 and done about midnight. Most days finish around 50 or so. I do have some apps that update a lot, the Good app for my work email and calendar. I also stream music via Bluetooth a lot while in my car. I am an account rep so I am in the car a lot.

    I just Bought the Anker 5200 for $25 to give it a try. Today is day one, but my initial impression is positive.

    Found online an extended battery called Mugen Power Battery. Not sure whether that's good or not.

    The anker battery is the same size as the Seidio. Seidio just came out with an Active case for the extended battery.

    Mugen batteries are good quality. Used them in past smartphones with no problems.
