    Just came across a Mugen 2300mAh extended replacement battery release.
    [HLI-I9300SL] Buy Mugen Power 2300mAh Extended Battery for Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 / AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III i747
    If there are any reviews please share them here, i am curious how this battery would behave with SGS3 , if the opinions are positive i would definitely upgrade the stock battery with mugen.

    Maybe I'm not seeing it but I don't see where it has the NFC built in. That's a lot of money for 200mah extra and no NFC!

    I had a Mugen in my Palm Pre and Galaxy S 2 and they were excellent. I haven't felt the need for one in this phone and I have no idea what that would do to nfc but my experience with them has been excellent. Of course for the cost you're only getting like an hour more of use

    Why would anybody spend money for a barely noticeable increase in battery capacity?

    ~9% more battery life for $45 and no NFC? No thanks.

    Even the 200 mAh increase is most likely just lower testing standards. As far as I know, none of the replacement battery manufacturers (or their customers) have ever demonstrated improved performance over stock batteries. On the other hand, several people have conducted tests that always show no real benefit.

    This is the description from one of a few vendors, mentioning the NFC

    "Additional information
    Extended battery adds 200mAh to your Galaxy S3
    The original Samsung Galaxy S3 battery is 2100mAh, this Mugen battery is 2300mAh. Adding 200mAh, more than enough to give you that extra time you need to chat text or surf.

    Built in NFC chip

    The Mugen extended battery features a built in NFC chip which gives your Samsung Galaxy S3 its NFC capabilities to use NFC technology on items such as Samsung TecTiles
    .


    Fits with original Samsung back cover
    Unlike other extended batteries, this one fits with your original Samsung back cover..."

    Personally, I still think it's too much $$, but not because of no NFC, in case anyone was worried.

    FWIW, I got this battery and it arrived today. My phone (Galaxy S3 on AT&T) allows me to enable the NFC functionality with the battery installed (NFC TagInfo app seems to be functional too, though I have no other devices nearby to test it out with).

    Look forwards to test results...

    This is crazy. For $21, you can get a 4200 mah QCell or Hyperion NFC extended battery with cases from Amazon.

    I believe the 4200, 4500, 4800 mah batteries are crap. If you test them you will see they are like really 2300 mah, tops. See user some reviews. For instance, this 4800 one is only 9.76 dolars, how is that even possible?

    I know there are some knockoffs, but some of them have really good reviews I'll be sure to report back the battery life I get when mine arrives next week. Thanks for bringing me back to earth though

    I've got the Hyperion 4200 mAh and must say that it gets the job done. With the OEM battery I could not make it through the day. Now I get home from work with almost 40% left.
