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


I agree. What's the point in having a super thin cool looking phone if the battery will only last you 8 hours? Sure, the iPhone is cool and thin and so are other Android phones out there but turn on that GPS, the WIFI, make calls, text and I can assure you , by 2pm (if not earlier), your phone will go on panic mode and ask you for more juice.

This is no lie, I have had my Note 2 turned on with GPS, WIFI, calls, texts, since wednesday. It is Saturday now and I still have 71% battery left.

Does the Hyperion battery make my phone a little thicker on the back? Yes, but who cares. I don't have to worry about charging that sucker for days.

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.


The Hyperion battery comes with a manual and on the back of the manual it says:

"For full battery performance, please discharge fully and re-charge at least 5 times."

I was thinking 'does anyone make extended batteries for my s3'?
After looking for one, and the price at the time, I simply decided to turn off the features I didn't need on all the time and just turn them on for a few minutes a few times a day to let it update.
Note, I don't have a problem with extended batteries and would probably get one if needed.

I can only dream of finding a Note 2 for sprint that doesn't cost me a fetus.

It's more individual preference these days, I just recycled my old laptop, that I bought 2nd hand, that had a lithium battery, and I can assure you, at least in my case, the battery at the time I got rid of it, didn't last much more than 20 or so minutes.
I tried the method people recommended, full discharge, etc.. nothing.
But the mobo failed, so I sold it to envirophone. But back to battery management, my N8 still had almost 6 days standby when I traded it in for my S3. A good rule of thumb from personal experience....
Let it go dead, charge it using your pc if possible, after 3 of these cycles, and the battery has gone dead agaij, charge the 4th time from the mains power. Or keep a spare battery if this is too impractical.
(I had to do this especially for my old n8 as it was a sealed unit.)

Hyperion makes an extended battery for the Galaxy S3 as well. Here you go:

Other brands that make extended batteries for the S3:

http://www.amazon.co...xtended battery


NOTE: My boss has an S3 and he bought the Hyperion extended battery and he loves it. He says the phone has been up and running for 3 days straight now, GPS, WIFI turned "on" plus his casual calling and texting and he still has 58% battery left. Those things just won't die. They are very good batteries.

Cool, the prices are more reasonable now, I'll look into getting one, thank you :)
And for the recommendation :)
Edit... doh!
Lol they were in US Dollars, I'll see if they're available as exports or if there is a UK stockist.

The secret?: Hyperion 6200 mHa battery.

Also remember, even though the GPS is turned "on", the phone will only start using it if an application such as Navigation requests it so even though it's turned "on", it's actually "sleeping" until requested by the app that wants to use it.

I don't know if I'd trust the manual-writing expertise of a company with evidence against it of fraud:

Well, if that's the case then its time for a law suit for false advertisement.

Also, if the 6200mHa battery is a fake then its a damn good one because I am telling you dude, this thing will not die. I have been using the hell out of it and it's still almost full. Not even half way yet.

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.
