I recently ordered an extended battery for my Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The battery is so awesome I thought I share it with you people who own a Note 2.

Thing thing got to me at 9:00am this morning and it had 58% charge. I wanted to drain the battery completely so I can star to "train" it to get the most out of it so I opened Netflix, turned "on" the GPS and the WIFI and began to play movies. I swear to my mother that after playing 5 movies, GPS and WIFI "on" and surfing the web, at 6:30pm this thing still had 28% battery left. It is now 12:19 midnight and with the battery on 8%, I was able to play 1 more Netflix movie and it finally died now. This thing is a monster.

Here's the battery and where I got it:

Here's a case for it as well:

It makes the phone look fat. I was considering one of that but decided against it. Why not mugen? I think that one is 6500mah.

If battery backup is awesome as explained above, I do not think many like me would go for the looks. :)
Thanks for sharing this info, @Scorbing

Would you be interested to test our battery?

I have seen your battery, but you charge $105.00 for it. The Hyperion 6400 mHa battery I got was $14.99 and does the same, exact thing yours does. It has nothing less than stellar reviews at Amazon, so why spend the extra $$$ on something that does the same thing as the one I got?

Hyperion has been making batteries for RC Cars and other remote control toys for years, so they got a good reputation.

If your battery is better than the Hyperion and does more things, then please, enlighten us and tell us what the difference is.

Pretty sure you don't need to train a li-ion battery, in fact running it all the way down could keep it from charging to full capacity.

FWIW, my understanding of battery technology today is that, much like defragmenting a solid-state drive, 'training' is an obsolete practice and could potentially cause harm. It's being dangerously encouraged by the Android hacking crowd that's been using custom recovery modes which offer a "reset battery stats" function, where users are instructed to run the battery to zero then full to 're-teach' it its limits.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Seems like a great battery for the price. I'll have to remember this one.

The battery doesn't really make the phone that much fatter.

They only look stupid to people who care more about fashion looks, those people tend to be a bit childish to begin with.
