    I was browsing ebay earlier and saw a 3500 mah battery for the g3. Is it legit? Any reviews? Thanks.

    But would it need a new back plate?

    Looks legit and the leads line up according to the pictures.

    It would be interesting to see the quality of this battery and how long it lasts after 6 months...

    I hope somebody posts a review about this battery. Because a 3500 mah battery would really help us g3 users.

    OK, I'm going to try them. Here is how I'm justifying it. It's only $18.00. There are two batteries so if they don't last that long, I still have my original, and you only live once. Hello Chinese batteries.

    True but Amazon gives you better customer support, returns, etc, etc, etc....you know what I mean! Also, those same sellers will most likely sell you fugazi (fake in Italian) items on their ebay accounts. Amazon boots sellers who do that. Ebay to me is the Chinese black market of fake products. You have been warned!

    Think of buying super incredible long-lasting Chinese cell phone batteries off of ebay that won't ship out for 20 days as an adventure.

    They're coming from China. By the time they arrive, you may have a new phone. I have A.D.D. There is no way I could wait that long. That being said, my LG OEM batteries just came in today.....from Hong Kong. I had them express shipped though. I am a fairly heavy user between business and personal use. So, I always buy extra batteries so I can swap them out throughout the day.
    I hate being tethered to a cord all day. Plus, these phones get crazy hot when you use them while they're plugged in. I'm always afraid I'm going to overheat the processor by using it while it's plugged in.

    I believe these chips have a temperature shut down built in if they get to a certain temperature to prevent damage. Like the Intel processors in computers. I have not been able to verify this, personally, and most likely you will not get nearly that hot. (80ºC)

    True, but I also know it's not good for the batteries to charge them all of the time. It shortens the life of the battery. This phone will usually last me until 4 or 5pm before I have to change the battery, which is longer than the GN3 lasted me.

    How are you charging theses batteries?

    The hotter it is, the more inefficient the charging is.

    LG has a battery charger available. It only does one at a time, but that is fine with me. I have a total of 3 batteries now.

    Did you read the article this week of the 13 year old girl that slept with her Samsung phone under her pillow that started burning and even burned the pillow due to cheapo battery? What if the phone burned while she wasnt sleeping, just woke but phone left on bed while in another room? Burn down the whole house.

    I'm waiting for a more well known company to put one out for the G3 or live with the one that came with the phone before I buy a cheapo off of ebay.

    I bought this very same battery from Amazon. It does NOT last any longer then the stock battery. At least I didn't notice it lasting longer. Says you have to drain completely and then charge to 100% 3 times to calibrate. Who knows
