Hey, i found this two third party branded 3800 mah extended batteries on both amazon and ebay for $20 each one made by Hyperion and another by Trexcell. I am thinking about getting one of them because i dont feel like paying the $60 for the seidio one. Just wondering if anyone has gotten one of them and your experience with it.
I just got the Trexcell. I will report back in a few days to see how its working out. When i put it in my phone it was at 49% and i got 3hrs and 45 mins out of it. and i was getting 4hrs with my other 1 at 100% but we will see in a few days.
I feel alot better about the $30 I thought I wasted on the pair of 3800mAh batteries from Ebay. They also only got about 5-7hrs of time with heavy use. For me it was not worth it since the standby time was not much longer than the stock batteries. I use the NFC functions also.
I'm not impressed with Trexcell 3800 mAh battery. 8 hours of use with 3 hours of screen on time is the best I've gotten. This is with 4G, WiFi,Bluetooth, GPS, Data Sync and Auto Brightness ON. I'm not impressed because I was getting similar usage on my 2100 mAh extended battery.
well, i did spend the $60 for the seido and i don't regret it. i got 1 day and 9 hours out of it with about 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 hours of screen on time. mind you that this is from charging the battery upto 100 percent after i unboxed it. it was around 48 or 49 percent when i first popped it in.
Thanks for the replys. I ended up getting the Hyperion extended battery. So far pretty pleased with the battery. First day was a bit iffy but I let it fully drain and it has been great since. Took it off the charger at 6am today.
Feels awesome not having to charge my phone all day and worry about it. Hope it sticks lol
