    Can anyone please recommend a portable battery for the S3?

    I tried buying one and it didn't seem to work at all.

    I am not sure if this is because my battery on my phone may be dying or simply because the portable battery does not charge as well as an outlet?

    Thanks for any information anyone can provide me.

    I bought an Anker 10000 Mah charger for the wife's S3. Liked it so much I got one as well. She is having battery issues and I ordered a battery last night from Amazon. Sold by OEM Battery Supply. $6.98
    I made sure it said the same numbers as our Verizon one. Should be here in a few days.

    Thanks...I am not sure what is with this phone..when I charge at the office, it can charge all the way. Anywhere else, no. I don't know if it's the charger as I use a different one at work. I will also try to get a new battery at Best Buy today.

    Just as a followup the wife's S3 now is much better. She came home and after 12 hours still had 24% left. I let it go until this morning and it was down to 3%. That was 30 hours with 1.5 SOT. It was dying at 30% before new battery. Was worth the 7 bucks!
