    Hey guys,I need a new battery for the Mrs to start using my s2, it's a stock size that I'm after though, physically that is, cheaper the better but obviously has to decent quality. I had seen this one but given its 1900mhz I'm assuming it's the extended battery which wouldn't fit normal backing etc!?

    Otherwise do you think I'd be as well getting a Samsung one like for like?

    :) cheers

    Then again I just saw a video on this battery suggesting it is still the same size as Samsung stock?

    I used that battery for almost 2 years, was better than the "stock"battery and no performance issues. Certainly didn't melt my phone. I'd highly recommend it!

    I think she feels at the moment at least that the original is ok for her usage just now but outta interest, is the anker battery any bigger than the stock one? Physically!

    Nope, I chose it cuz it doesn't need bigger back panel, no heavier, and apart from label looks exactly the same as the original battery

    I got the pack with 2 batteries and a charger 6 months ago and it has been great.

    true story - I think one of the particle detectors (CMS) at the LHC in CERN killed my original battery!!

    I was visiting CERN with other Physics teachers from the UK in December and we were visiting a particle detectors called CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid). The LHC was running so we couldn't go down to the tunnel but we were as close as we could get when I thought I would try and measure the magnetic field strength using an app I have as we were essentially standing above a massive electromagnet. When I loaded it up it was reading 0 which is strange as the earth's magnetic field is normally between about 30 and 50 microT. I restarted my phone and when I did the battery level went down from about 60% to 5% and lost all power not long after. It was never the same again so I had to buy a new one the week after. It might have been a coincidence but I like to think that the LHC killed my battery.
