    Can anyone reccomend a replacement battery for my S3. Mine has been draining rediculously fast, so I'm wondering if my battery is shot.

    I'd perfer one that would still fit in my Otterbox case, but I'd consider an extended battery and ditching the case (as nervous as that makes me).

    If you do not use NFC then I recommend ZeroLemon on Amazon. I bought one in August and it easily lasts for a day (medium usage, in and out of WiFi, never turning off WiFi or Bluetooth). If you use NFC, then get the official Samsung battery from your wireless carrier. If you have a corporate discount or know someone that does you can get 25% off at Verizon. I've tried the cheaper Samsung batteries from Ebay and none worked to charge fully or last all day.

    Would the ZeroLemon battery fit in the Otterbox case?

    You'd need to modify the otter box (cutting the inner shell), otherwise just popping the case on with the ZL battery won't work.
