Extended Battery For Samsung Galaxy Note 2

41 posts in this topic

I have a Hyperion extended battery (3800 mAH) for my VZ Galaxy Nexus, and it is a substantial improvement over the Samsung extended battery (2100 mAH). I can easily sneak by 2 days of heavy usage, or 3 days of moderate usage. It was cheap too, and yeah, it does make the phone fat. But, I'd rather have the extra battery life.

I wonder if, MAYBE, they made a mistake and put the wrong labels on the battery? The reviews at Amazon are nothing but good so I don't know what to think or say about that.

People already look stupid using a big phone

And some idiots make themselves look stupid with or without a phone. Seriously, do you think I ever put it to my ear, or do you think the more likely option is that I use a headset...

Weird, every time ive tried a 'discount' battery off amazon its been total crap. I actually bought a Mugen for my old GSII and it was amazing, though the price was definitely high. Seido makes good batteries, but lacked NFC support which hte Mugen's had(in the case of the GSII where the antenna was in the battery). Wouldnt be surprised if that discount battery after a week has issues, like most do, and even the reviews show after a few charge cycles it performs extremely poorly.

I don't know, I'm very impressed with the Hyperion battery for my Galaxy Nexus. I had a Seidio battery for my Droid Incredible, and that was very spotty - you could definitely tell it didn't have the capacity Seidio claims it had. The Hyperion is much cheaper, and has vastly improved my battery life, so I'm happy.

I had my Hyperion battery working for 4 days straight without a single recharge and it finally died this morning after abusing it with the web browser, texting and calling. I don't know about Mugen, but this Hyperion battery is pretty damn good.

So my issue is not the looks of the phone my issues is getting protective cases that fit with such an odd shape. I use the Jkase and love it how would it fit with such an extended battery.

Also if anyone knows of a extended battery that gives a little more life that doesn't make the back stick up and will allow all cases to work please send it my way.

found these on ebay. Just not sure about them.

What is the life of just the normal battery?

Although I am pretty much waiting for the S4 announcement on the 14th, the Note 2 is still a slight possibility for me, so just curious what the life was on the regular battery?

Regular battery, with texting, web surfing, email and calls, will last you about one day and a half.

I just got a Note 2 this week and I'm fairly happy with battery life the way it is. It will last all day on a single charge and as long as it will do that I'm good to go.

Thanks. Since I am an iPhone owner currently, I am used to charging pretty much every day, so I can live with that, although an extended battery life such as the one you describe is a hell of a lot better.

As I said, I am waiting to see what comes of the S4 announcement. I have been up for a new phone for a couple of weeks now, so can wait a month or two if needed.

Check out that video I posted on the ZeroLemon battery for the Note 2. It's amazing.

agreed, i can do some pretty heavy stuff on my Note2, such as HD video, navigation (GPS), surf and it will still last a day, the difference between that and my old iphone is incredible.

People already look stupid using a big phone It doesn't make much different if it is a lot fatter.

For longer battery life does a person care if the phone has a big rear end or are they more concerned about what people will think of it. And really to me people look more stupid with smaller phones. Bigger phones make more sense and you can actually see things more easily and work the keyboards better without messing up so much, especially bigger guys with big fingers like myself.

I personally could care less if my phone looks bigger. As long as the battery lasts me all day and a couple of more days after that, I am happy.
