Basically, I have a way to measure the exact mAh capacity of the battery. So far I have tested one so called "Gold" from eBay which claimed 4200 mAh and I found to be 2000 mAh. Someone else in XDA done the same test with 2 more ebay batteries claiming anywhere from 3100 mAh to 3800 mAh - and found those to be close to 2000 mAh as well. Sounds like a lot of ebay cheap stuff uses the same battery cells rated at 2000 mAh and they just put different labels on it...

Well I went ahead and ordered the 9300 Extended battery. Supposed to get it Saturday. One thing that really annoys me is the amazon listing shows it had full support for NFC, which it does not. My Hyperion NFC works 1% of the time so that was a major reason I wanted the ZeroLemon
