    I'm the same absolutely no need for it, but if you game then perhaps (but I don't much).

    Now it's almost Thanksgiving, had my Note 4 for over a month, and still no ZeroLemon battery for it. WTF? Last time I believe anything that ZeroLemon says about release dates. Love their batteries, but starting to wonder about that company.

    According to this it will be before Christmas. That sure seems like a long ways away but it is really not.

    Well I just got my Note 4 yesterday and have already put it on the charger 3 X LOL
    I got on it this morning after being on the charger all night, started at 8am, just played with the phone, did the usual things you have to do with a brand new phone downloading apps setting it up and just web surfing and about 3 minutes of watching a video just to see what the screen looks like.
    Went from 100% down to 65% in 2 1/2 hours, for me that's woefully inadequate. That gives it maybe a 5 hour straight usage time.
    While it is nice to be able to charge it back to full from that 65% in about 30 minutes there are times that you just do not want to hassle charging your phone.
    I assume with the 10,000Ah battery I would have been around 85% in that same 2 1/2 hours of usage which is more in line with what it should be from the factory for a so called $800 phone ($300 with contract). and that doesn't even count what the battery will be like in about a year as it loses power.
    My only concern would be will the phone fit into the VR Gear and if not then how long will the standard battery last with no doubt what should be a battery hog accessory?
    On a normal day where you basically just talk on it a few minutes, check email and the weather a couple times and maybe google a couple things spending a total of about 30 minutes max then of course the standard battery should be more than adequate all day long.
    But a Phablet is going to be used much more than that on average.

    I wish they made like a 5000 mah battery for this phone as well. 10,000 is a little over kill for this phone. Kind of unnecessary as the battery is already great. Just need a little bit more juice to last all day.

    I just want them to hurry up. There are no batteries yet for this phone. Well other than Samsung batteries and we all know those are overpriced Lol.

    I wonder if it will also be able to use the adaptive charging for quick charge times.

    If your phone is hitting 65% after only 2 hours, it's either still in the initial setup phase, or you have a couple of apps set up that are constantly running in the background.

    If I used my phone for the same amount of time that you're describing, I'd be somewhere 80-90%.

    Mine has been off charger for +/- 3 hours, streaming audio for 90 minutes, browsing the Web and this forum for about an hour. I'm still at 91%.

    I did have an App called "Accupedo" basically a pedometer that for some stupid reason will keep running in the background for absolutely no reason at all and it is a battery hog.
    My battery has gotten better now that I "force stop" that app after each use.
    Right now I am at 69% after 10 hours 35 minutes and that was using the Accupedo for about 2 hours, checking email many times and posting on G+ quite a bit.
    So not good and not bad.
    I'm not sure what I want to do, not sure if I want a GIANT phone with the 10,000Ah battery and case that will probably be hard to get into my pocket or just stick with the standard battery and put a simple screen protector over it call it a good deal.

    Size wise this will be like taping THREE Note 4s on top of each other, more than 3/4" thick.
    I hope the holder works well because I cant imagine this fitting in anyones pants pocket.

    I just pre-ordered my new Zero Lemon monster battery. At 1mm smaller than the Note 3, it will fit in my pocket just fine. After all you need something to keep you grounded on a windy day!

    So I am on day 2 at 70% battery with the ZeroLemon.

    OK, this will work just fine, it is like having a brick in your hand though.

    How's the case itself? I like that there are covers for every port, including the S-pen, but how are the actual covers? do they feel cheap? How's the sound, since the speaker is covered?

    What about the battery itself? how much of the case does it take up? if it doesn't take up the whole case, what fills the extra 'empty' space? I'm thinking about it but I'm just not sure.

    CASE:
    1. The case is bulky like the Otterbox Defender. It's pretty sturdy.

    2. The ports are somewhat flimsy and muffle the sound slightly. It's a little annoying but if you are particular about the sound quality, you can gently cut off the port covers and restore the sound quality.

    3. The back is recessed so much that it is tricky to get S health to work properly.

    BATTERY:

    1. The battery life is amazing. I can get 17-19 hours of SOT with auto brightness, location services, Internet, some games. You just have to be patient with conditioning the battery and the first few charge-recharge cycles.

    OTHER QUESTIONS:

    1. The battery takes up about 3/4 of the case and the rest is a plastic frame to keep the battery in place.

    It's heading towards 20 hours of onscreen time and has been at 1% for over an hour.... and no power-saving mode is on. If you were a light user, it could easily last a week... it's completely ridiculous.

    How heavy is that thing?
    Can you use it with one hand (referring to both weight and reachability of the screen).


    Am still struggling to understand why this is needed..

    it's a very bulky case but I use it with one hand. And I am, statistically speaking, one of the smallest adults here (under 4' 11).

    I just like the fact that I don't have to charge it often or remove the back cover to swap batteries.

    Some people have high-risk, time-sensitive jobs where they just don't have the time to fiddle with chargers and extra batteries... they just need the phone to last long hours.
