    I bought the Zerolemon extended battery and I love it! I can go 2.5 days without charging it, as opposed to the original 12 hours.

    Yes it is. I got mine off of Amazon for $40.00 delivered.

    Regarding batteries I think it's definitely better at least sticking to a known third party brand, gambling with fakes just isn't worth it. Would recommend something like Anker, bought one myself a year ago and very pleased with it:
