All I'm gonna say is be very careful who you buy from. I bought a 1800mAh battery and when I tested it it tested as a 1500mAh battery. These Chinese SOB's just stick a 1800mAh sticker on a 1500mAh battery and sell it. Most people would never know the difference and think that it's just a cheap battery is the reason it's getting the same life as a 1500.

There are battery testers on the market that read the battery and tell you what the mAh is. Be vary careful. Oh....... just because the seller has good feedback doesn't mean that they are selling what they advertise, it just means that the people buying them are 2 stupid to test what they buy. LOL

The next battery that I buy will not be bought off Ebay. I'll buy it from a reputable seller where I don't need to worry about them shitting me and selling a 1500 battery that they advertised as a 1800.

Oh..... I did get my money back plus got to keep 4 1500 batteries too. The fist ones that they sent clearly said 1500 on them so I contacted the seller and they sent me ones that said 1800mAh on them. LMAO!!!! I tested and they were still 1500. They just put an 1800 sticker on them. Bastards.

I have an extended battery that I bought from Amazon. Its advertised at 3500mah. I have been using it over a month now and can personally vouch that it lasts me two days with light usage and a full day with over 25% left after a full day of heavy use. the brand was hyperion I think. I highly recommend it. Best 15 bucks I ever spent on a phone.

Yeah but you have the larger back too. That means none of the protective cases will fit it and I've gotta have those. Lol I will look up the name though and see if they have a larger battery without having to get a new back cover.

I bought the same one and should be here tomorrow...can't wait since the stock doesn't last 6 hrs or so. I also just got my phone back from LG after sending it back for over heating to temps over 118 degrees. Hopefully new battery wont cause any problems

Sorry for digging up aging thread, but wonder whether anyone has any luck with extended battery. I got my Marquee used and the battery lasts ~30 hrs standby with minimal data/talk and no push.

This is why I say to check the mAh of the batteries. The sellers try to pull a slick one and slap a sticker with a higher mAh on the batteries. They tried it with me and I caught them.

If you have this happen, REPORT THEM to Ebay or Amazon. This is very bad business practice. Just think of all the people they have sold batteries to that were misrepresented by false advertisement.
