    So I have enjoyed my note 2 especially it's long battery life, especially compared to other Android devices.

    While it didn't happen to often I did myself running out of battery, in extreme high use cases and usually those where times when I really needed my phone.

    Anyhow the stress of having to carry a charger and and outlet got to me so I ended up buying a spare battery and charger, at the whopping price of around $15.

    What a world of difference this has made I know keep the spare battery in my car, fully charged when I do need to switch the process takes 2 min. Tops and I'm back in business.

    I wish I did this much sooner, so for folks that are on the fence let me tell you get a spare battery you won't regret it.

    Thanks I plan to get one of those. I carry my phone in my pocket and the extra bulk will get in the way, however there are times when I'm on travel and away from any means to recharge, those times is when that case/extended battery will be invaluable.

    I have 5 spares. Last fall during a hurricane I had no power for 3 days. Still had 2 battery's fully charged when power came back on. When I go camping I never have to worry.

    Note 2, it's true, ,size is everything!

    I played it safe and bought 1 battery for half price using a coupon from Samsung and then later bought 2 battery+charger units for half price using a coupon from Samsung. I keep1 battery in the phone, 1 in a case with me and 1 in the charger at home. So's I'm always ready to put in a fresh one in when I lose juice. Nothing like the convenience.

    Ridin' a Note 2 blast

    I always have a spare battery in my bag. I bought the original samsung one, but it takes almost 10 hrs to get it charged fully. The same can be charged in 4 hrs if I use my external samsung charger.
