    The sticker under the battery (stuck to the compartment for the battery) states 1300mah...

    Very sloppy Samsung!

    So, like a fool I took my battery out, expecting to say "mine doesn't" and have Sejgiul say, "made you look", but guess what, so does mine. 1300mah. sloppy sloppy!

    Someone probably transposed the 1 and the 3 because it's actually 3100mah.

    Next time, it might be a "made you look" just for you lol. Your comment made me chuckle

    A bit unrelated to the topic, but those blue stickers on the SD card and sim card slot, are we supposed to remove them?

    better check to make sure you don't have a ebay knockoff!

    Thats probably what input the phone needs to operate not the size of the battery.

    No, I believe they are put there while in the manufacturing phase. Probably to protect the mechanisms from loose particulates and such.

    Agree. Mine says: 3100 mAh

    The battery also has: VZW : SAMI605BATS

    Could be that some battery batches are messed up on the labeling.

    I just checked my note 2 and gs3 that number dictates how much power is needed to run the phone. How much amperage the phone uses. It doesnt mean anything about the battery.

    Power and capacity are two different things entirely.
    A device doesn't really give a hoot about mAh as that is merely a measurement of electric charge, hence we can chuck a battery of any capacity in. What the device does care about is voltage and current. As long as the battery can supply the correct voltage and current, which is kind of defined by the device itself - as in, it'll draw what it needs, then there really is no need for a minimum or maximum mAh. All that determines is how long your battery is going to last.

    I suppose it could be a recommended minimum but more likely an error in manufacturing.

    No any electrical device has a rating of power to run on, stay running, to keep its capacitors charged. Its 3.4v at a minimum of something amperage. The device needs a 3.4 volt battery. The amperage of a battery can be more but the voltage needs to be the required voltage. Amperage is the amount of electricity going through a wire or device. Voltage is the amount of power going through a wire or device, current.

    Amperage of a battery mah (milli amps per hour) is the discharge rate of a battery, hence the flow of electricity. The higher the mah number does mean a larger battery but it does not mean it has more output. If the voltage is higher it means the battery has more output.

    Erm yeah that is pretty much what I said. It's voltage and current which the device really cares about.

    mAh can be summed up simply by saying it's a measurement of how much energy the battery can hold and how long the device will run for before recharge. Basically, it's a measurement for batteries.

    I suppose I didn't make my self perfectly clear, but what I was getting at is that it's unusual to see mAh in a device rating. Usually you see voltage and current ratings which the device requires to operate, not discharge rates or capacity values.

    No u made urself clear. U stated that the what was on the back of the phones did not dictate the size and capacity of the battery. I didnt not state that either. I said thats the running voltage and amperage. I should have made it more clear and state that does not dictate the size of a battery, only the minimum size of a battery.

    Voltage is the amount of power going through a wire or device, current.
    Voltage is an electrical energy difference, or tension. Current is voltage divided by resistance. Power is voltage times current. or Power is electrical charge times voltage divided by time, measured as Amps per hour or milli Amps per hour - mAh..

    (see Wikipedia voltage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltage; Wikipedia Ohm's law: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohm%27s_law; Wikipedia Electric power: Electric power - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    I just had to look, and mine doesn't either. FCC number, EIN, and all that, but nothing related to the battery.

    Isn't technical the only thing that really counts? It was claimed that: "Voltage is the amount of power going through a wire or device, current." That is false. Voltage is not the "amount of power" through a wire. Nor is it the current. As I stated: "Voltage is an electrical energy difference, or tension. Current is voltage divided by resistance. Power is voltage times current. or Power is electrical charge times voltage divided by time, measured as Amps per hour or milli Amps per hour - mAh." (Again: see Wikipedia voltage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltage; Wikipedia Ohm's law: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohm%27s_law; Wikipedia Electric power: Electric power - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
