Default Arcsoft 3060mAh Batteries

Hey everybody,
Just wanted to give a quick review of these batteries.
I found that I was having trouble making it to the end of the day on my Note. On a slow day I was fine but if I played a few games or surfed the net on my lunch break I would plug in after dinner.
I didn't want to go for the bulging back 5000 mAh setup so I tried these to get a little extra.

I'm happy so far. Abused my phone for a good chunk of the day and I'm going to make it to bed time on a charge. It was the edge I needed. I picked them up off ebay with the wall charger and now I have spares.

I wasn't sure if it would be worth it, but I think it was good investment.

*oops, Acesoft batteries... I was close.

Hey Jet,

I was looking to find something like this as well, any further updates after having it for a week here or so.

I barely used my phone and barely can make it through the day. So something like this would help out alot.

First step is going through the note and note LTE threads and figuring out how to help your battery life. Sometimes there is an easy fix like changing a setting, but as for the batteries they are solid.

I am really pleased with them. They just give the extra edge needed to finish the day. So hit eBay and find the biggest mAh battery you can that fits in the factory battery cover and go for it. It's not a game changer, if you only get 6 hours out of your phone there is something wrong, but for me I would be plugging in at around 12 hours, now I can make it to bed time with a little juice to spare enjoying my favorite widgets and live wallpapers.

Buying a Note 10.1 helps as well so I don't use my phone as much when I get home!

well...maybe i can make it 10hrs, but i'm just so used to my S3 going alot longer.

i've tried alot of tweaks to get better battery life, of course i'm running tmobile's note radio on att phone, that may have something to do with it as well, but i've not see anyone in the threads on the forums that has complained to have worst battery life when doing so.

i will try to find the biggest battery on ebay and give it a go that still fits on standard back cover.

thanks again,

-D

I bought this battery package and have been pleasantly surprised. I had read previously to be leery of any battery that claims to be higher capacity than stock but still fits under the stock battery cover. With this advice, and cautious optimism, I decided to try out the AceSoft batteries, anyway. They're not expensive, and I figured that even if they weren't any better than stock, then at least the extra batteries, wall charger and car charger would still be of use.

I have had the batteries for 1.5 weeks. My phone easily gets me through a typical day of use, now, with power to spare. Today, for example, I'm at 15 hours since unplugging and still have 30% battery left. This is on an LTE netork and my use today included web browsing, dropbox use, phone calls (some through handset alone, both earpiece and speakerphone, and some over bluetooth), streaming video (YouTube), text-messaging, background mail checks, reading and replying to email, etc. The life of the battery (I've only used one of the two so far, but both are charged) has improved with several charge cycles.

Battery life was one of my two biggest gripes as far as my Note was concerned (the other is speed). The battery life issue is now a non-issue. Your mileage may vary, but given my experience so far I would have no reservation recommending these batteries to Note I users.
