    Metro sells an extended battery for $50 I think. But **** that noise look for one online. You should be able to find one for $20-30, just make sure to read the reviews and all that to make sure it's legit.

    I heard the Oem extended is really good but I bought a cheap one off eBay, my dad has the esteem now and the extended battery is still working pretty good. I would try eBay or Amazon

    Those ebay extended batteries are trash. I tested and tried all the major ones on the bay and all of them started loosing capacity and dying faster over the span of a few months. You get what you pay for. Granted you will get a few months of extra battery size but it wills tart going downhill and you will notice that your stock Samsung battery lasts longer than your extended one. My suggestion? pay the money for a legit Samsung extended battery. 30-40 bucks on Amazon or the Bay. That and turn that damn Vampire blood sucking LTE off whenever possible. ;)
