    Just payed for a 4300mah battery for my s3, not sure how the battery life will be but for anyone who is willing to know I will post once I have used it for a few days to see how its life is like.

    Has anyone else got an extended battery? Hows the battery life?

    There are a few that have.

    I'm considering a case that has a battery built in and a solar panel on the back so I'm not strictly tied to the mains.

    I've got one. Lasts me, with modest use (few phone calls, some browsing, calendaring, texting, some photos) 2-3 days. My regular battery with this use gets plugged in each night with 50-60% still remaining.

    Makes the phone thicker. In some ways, easier to hold, but not as sleek and pretty.

    I just got my Hyperion yesterday. 4200 mAh. I charged it for just over 12 hours last night. So far my battery is draining just as fast as ever. Down 2% in the first hour. Sent/Received 6 texts and I'm down to 93% since I unplugged it at 6:30am (2 1/2 hours ago). Hopefully it will last longer once I've drained it a few times.

    Yeah apparently your meant to drain it and recharge full a few times, when I got it was on 48% so im charging it full and then draining it.

    when i got mine it was at 78% i used it for half a day then charged it over night. the first initial charge lasted a good day and half. but after that the charges arnt lasting as long. im on my 7-8th charge and about 17 hours is all i get. which is better than the 6-8hr from stock.

    well oem batt is 2100 mah.

    my hyperion is 4200 (i think) mah.

    so that is double the juice. in theory. i was getting less than a day with my oem batt. so in theory, 2 days with the hyperion.

    and yes, Li batts needs about 3 cycles of discharge and recharge before it can reach its max operating performance.

    was a recent trip (to CES in vegas) where i knew i would be without power for a good 8 hours while taking pixs, talking, browsing web, etc would eat up juice so i brought my oem batt with its back plate.

    i installed it to charge it. geez...

    the S3 is so thin... sleek... sexy even.

    but with the double thickness hyperion batt, it made it fat and bloated... lol...

    I purchased the Anker 4400mah from Amazon and this battery is absolutely amazing. I've gone literally 2-3 days without charging to see just how long this would last and it just keeps going and going. For those who don't mind a litttttttttle extra thickness, you won't be disappointed.

    Can someone post a pic of how the phone looks once the new battery is in... I'm very interested in getting an extended battery but don't want too much of a "bloated" look.

    You need to clear the battery stats first, otherwise the results are not goin to be correct as those stats reflect the amount used and amount remaining on your battery capacity. market has apps to clear battery stats.

    This is what I have too and just got it yesterday. So far I've noticed the same thing with the charge time.

    Battery definitely worth it, I tried to drain it in one day by playing games and using the Internet. It lasted 12 hours of using it as well as being on standby for an extra 6 hours and it was left on 25%. If anyone wants one then definitely get one

    Dont you mean BOUGHT the battery ???????
    If you do mean brought, where did you bring it from

    Just so we all know Brought - to bring from or bring to a location
    Bought - to buy or purchase an item
