Charging issues on Samsung Galaxy Relay 4G


Oct 20, 2012
Hello All,
Back again! Hey, just got new Galaxy Relay 4G. Here's the deal, I also purchased extra batteries for it ( 2600 mAh, 3.7V ) off E-Bay. Now, the Samsung battery that came with the phone charges ok, phone will say 100%, as will the battery % level indicator. I put one of the extra batteries into the phone to charge overnight. In this case, the phone said 100% charged, indicator said 85%. Are these batteries bad, not compatible (although, the description on e-bay says, Will replace OEM battery for Samsung Galaxy Relay T699)?? I've heard read that smartphones can really drain batteries, my reasoning for getting extras. But, should I look into getting new ones of a more reputable brand? These are Sporting Persistence brand(?????). any feedback would be a big help! 321177770030_19.jpg

Any 3rd party battery can potentially be poor quality. I'd stick with well-known brands like Seidio, Anker, and Zerolemon.
