    had my note 3 for a week or so and just wondering if anyone has tried\can recommend a larger capacity battery that doesn't increase phone size?? please

    about 5000mah should do the trick I think....

    The ANKER 6400 & HYPERION 6400 are equally capable of doubling the stock battery life.

    As for cases to fit I've come across only one, a Butt-Ugly/ill-fitting Honeycomb TPU case, available in assorted colors.

    All of the above can be found @ AMAZON & e-Bay.

    Perhaps, but, the OP is asking for something that isn't physically possible.

    You're not gonna fit 5000 mah worth of battery into the same space as the stock battery.

    It's one or the other, slim or a thicker profile w/added life.

    Just thought I'd post since I've actually used both.

    I'll check w/you 1st next time B.B., wouldn't want you to have your rolled-up eyes get stuck that way on my account.....

    There are already 4200mah stock size Note 3 batteries for sale on Amazon and eBay, so it's probably unwise to declare that a 5000mah version is impossible. Technology improves, no surprise there.

    Heh, ok!

    Are they truly 4200 mAh or are they somewhat exaggerated? I've seen batteries of various types to be a few hundred mAh than what they claim.

    That's an excellent question, Unicorn01. No-name batteries may not have the advertised capacity, and they may not have protection circuits that the OEMs do.

    so 4200mah is the best I can get at moment? which fits my criteria

    has anyone tried them in a note 3?

    Feel free to try one for yourself . Anything rated more than 100-200 mAh over stock w/o a size increase is B.S., but, it's your money...........

    Amazon.com: note 3 battery 4200 mah

    doesn't look like any reputable companies offer a 4200 mAh battery. If you dont want to get an extended battery, I would suggest 1-2 extra 3200 ones. I wouldnt risk my phone for a no name battery.

    Just to offer my input those batteries look really fishy and I probably would look at the reviews, if there are any before buying one yourself

    Thanks for the replies

    I guess I'll just wait a few months until there's more alternatives.

    but my note 3 battery does seem to last less then my note 2 :/

    Well the Note 3 does have more features which is probably impacting the battery some. I know for me I leave every feature that the phone has on. I have the Zerolemon extended so I don't have to worry about battery life anymore, but before that I carried around an extra battery and that was sufficient for awhile.

    As far as I can tell Samsung is using batteries that are close to their claimed capacity. There probably could be batteries made with higher capacity, but they will cost quite a bit more than even the OEM one. There is no way to get a battery with higher capacity for less money. Well, slave labor, skimping on packaging, overcharge protection circuits, craptastic build quality overall could do it. Look at even AA batteries from say Energizer and compare them to Powerex (MAHA). The Powerex will cost about 25-50% more but you will get pretty damn close to their rated capacity. The Energizers till will be at their rated capacity, but they are just lower. The off brands you can get for the same or even less claiming to be 2700 mAh are full of crap. None so far tested have actually been even close to that. Some are even under 2000.
    Battery technology just isn't there yet.

    I just looked at the batteries on the Powerex website. All I saw were NiMH batteries. I thought NiMH was now just a technology one generation behind Lithium-ion batteries, and you wouldn't want to bother with NiMH batteries anymore, if you could find Lithium-ion instead? No?

    Sorry, I was just using them as an example of what some battery makers do. There aren't as many li-ion batteries that aren't made into battery packs, so it's harder to test them. The only kinda sorta common li-ion battery would be the 3 volt 123. Mostly used for flashlights and cameras. You can get a charger for the more common AA, AAA, C, D, and 9 volt that will give you a very close reading of that's battery's storage capacity. Nothing like that for the li-ion batteries though.
    Basically I guess what I'm saying is that I don't trust the no-name companies out there, even less than I do in the NiMh AAs because there is no easy to find or use consumer tester available.

    Mpj makes a 4500 may battery that is the same size as the original so it fits in the original casing

    Sir,

    When I use Merchant portals and make payments, I can not enter the 3d secure password as the screen not stable to key in.
    Please advise

    Let's face it. Battery technology sucks. It ought to be way better than it is if it had kept pace with other tech developments. We are left with short-term batteries for today's devices and a need constantly to be on the lookout for a power supply to make sure we keep going.

    I have twice so far flattened two successive spare batteries whilst on the go and I'm sure it will happen again.

    And am I the only person who can easily be 48 hours away from any power source?

    MPJ battery looks pretty good. Reviews there and elsewhere suggest it lasts from 0% to 30% more than the stock battery.

    They all will make the phone larger. You can download something like Juice Defender which turns stuff off to help improve battery life. But if you select the aggressive mode to really extend battery life, you might find that the system operates sluggishly.

    All these extended batteries really are just batteries stacked on top of each other and fused together. Therefore, if you want twice the capacity, expect the new battery to be twice as large. I had the same problem when I owned the Galaxy S3. The extended batteries weighed down the phone and restricted which case i could buy. Just carry an extra charger or carry an extra battery around to swap out the discharged battery. Samsung carries one that fits into a nifty box.

    It really depends on the mAh if this battery will be twice as big as the one we have now. Bumping up to a 4500 isn't really a huge jump, 10000 is however.

    I would just be sad to lose my fake leather backing :p
