    Default Stock Battery Question (What does it look like)

    I purchased an "OEM" battery off ebay. Looks legit. Battery life doesn't say so sometimes though and I'm not sure if it is. (But It think that's just in my head cause they're not too much off; and, I'm not even sure half the time which battery is in). (although it's not bad and was only 12 bux).

    What does your battery look like?

    Are that arrows big or tiny? Is the LZ in tiny letters or large letters?

    I'm trying to distinguish which one is my original as I've forgotten. Thanks.

    Hmm. I'll take a picture before I swap and after I swap batteries at the end of the night.

    Thanks for the picture of the stairway.

    Looks like the one I posted is the one I bought from ebay. Can you get a picture of the reverse side?

    Yup, ok thanks. Looks like I was right. Seemed to have better battery today. And it's the OEM battery I have in now. The one I have a picture of is from Ebay. HMMMMMM. I wonder if it really is a Samsung though.

    This is my amazon battery. They're $9.99 now. I may order 2 more. And, yeah, the Nexus takes some decent pics.

    Yea the one from eBay is marked at 1500. I see maybe an hour or less tops difference. Could just be use. Even though screen time is about the same. Maybe what I'm doing that day.

    Yeah, I don't really notice a difference between the two, but I don't worry about my battery life too much. I'm on the damn thing so much that it's pointless for me to be concerned with it. THat's why I just get extras

    Yea me too. And when I'm not using it like I normally do the battery last all day. I might buy the one from Samsung. Its 45. But comes with a charger stand. I would have bought it at first if I knew it came with a battery. Haha.

    My charger is terrible it takes 6 hours to charge one. What charger do you use and how much did it cost?

    The only thing I have noticed is that sometimes the screen will become unresponsive if I just have it plugged into an outlet. I keep it plugged into an outlet and a usb. Can't tell you how long it takes though because I just put it on at night

    Hmmmm. What's the output rating and where is it made? Mine says 800ma output. But its from hk. No way its that. 3 hours on a 700ma Samsung with the phone on and it ls done.

    It says 1000ma. Made in China of course. I had a different one for the EVO. It was a rebranded Boxwave I think. The micro usb got a bit loose over time and I lost the ability to sync. They make one also, but this one looked better so I figured I would give it a shot.

    Hhmm. For the price I might spend 20 more for the Samsung one. With battery. Just to see how it works. And it has a battery cover. Mine is always falling out in my backpack.

    I was going to get the one you're talking about until I realized it wasn't a dock, only a spare battery charger. I wanted a dock too, so this was significantly cheaper for me than buying both Samsung products
