    I am looking for an extended battery, but one that would still fit the OEM backdoor cover, because I still want the water resistant ability
    I know I saw one that was a 3200mah or something above 3000mah but I dont remember where I saw it

    Anyone have ideas of extended batteries like this?

    Since 3200 VS 3000 really won't make a difference (and as the latest Moto360 debacle showed, 3000 is actually the minimum capacity for a battery labeled as 3200), I guess it's just like buying a spare battery.

    Any extended batteries will invariably need to be bigger, and since you have a fixed length to fit the battery port, the only way to grow them is to make them fatter, thus requiring a new back cover.

    Beware of scams though, as you'll find (usually Chinese) knockoffs that claim to have a slim extended battery. These never work and are usually just (poorly) repackaged spare batteries and can cause further damage to your phone.

    Yeah I read about that as well, thanks for the insight

    I guess it wont make a difference, but I figured 2800mah and 3200mah would be somewhat of a noticeable difference

    3000mAh is no different with 2800mAh in fact.4000mAh or above is a true extended battery. If you want a 4000mAh with the original size, it is impossible in accordance with the current technology. The battery's capacity depends on the size of the battery to a certain extent.
