I was at GenCon last week, and during my travel and stay there, I was only getting about 10 hours of battery life. (Prior to that, I was getting about 16, so I think the lack of wireless and strong signal cut into that.)
On return, my Hyperion extended battery was waiting for me. Per directions, I charged for 12 hours. Now I'm (again, per directions) running it down to complete depletion for a recharge.
Or, rather, I'm trying to ... it's been 44 hours since it came off the charger, and I'm still at 65 percent. Wow.
It's crazy, right? I got 93.5 hours on my first discharge-to-depletion, and 104 hours on my second. This isn't as good as a Touchstone charger, in terms of power-charging goodness and happiness with a product, but it's pretty damn close.
I just purchased this battery and then charged it for 12 hours with the phone off untill fully charged. When I turned on the phone the battery only read 98% charge. Anyone expierience this issue? Thanks for your help!!
Nope but mine drops to 98% quickly. It also seems like the percentage drops quicker the first 50% vs the second half. It doesn't bother me as this battery is exactly what I was looking for. It'll give me 15+ hours of hard use and not skip a beat.
I have thought about getting an extended such as the one in this thread. However, i have a issue hanging onto my phone. I currently have an otterbox for my gs3. Does anyone make a case for the added thickness the extended battery gives the phone??

I've had the Hyperion extended since October, love it. Just received the Seidio back cover and Seidio Active case to go with it. Prior to getting the hyperion I used the Otterbox Defender, this Seidio case really doesn't feel any bigger than the Defender. It does feel a little slick. The best part is how the area of the cover and case fit snugly around the lens, speaker and light. The hyperion cover has the same width throughout so that the lens is set in a deep indentation that affects the quality of pictures taken with the flash.
