How thick is the phone with that damn thing.

Update - Still haven't charged this battery since the first initial charge. I took it off the charger roughly around 3am Saturday 4/13/13. As of right now, I am at what it says to be 23% ( this could be off due to the phone not knowing the true limits of the battery ) but I am very impressed.
From the pictures, you can see just how long it has lasted so far. 2D 11H 41M without a charge, and over 8 hours of the screen being on at max brightness.
The first day, I really tried to kill this battery. I probably logged about 5 hours of screen time. I was using youtube, netflix, hulu, games, and browsing the internet as much as I could. By the end of the day, at least for what I can do, I was unable to kill this beast. So I figured I would just ride it out.
Sunday I had a family event. I recorded a view videos and took some pictures. was able to get just under 3 hours of screen on time on Sunday.
Now we are on Today, Monday. I am now actively trying to kill the battery while at work. Not really streaming anything, but just constantly keeping the screen on and browsing the internet.
I'm wondering how long this will take to recharge tonight... if I can get it to that point.
So far though, I would strongly recommend this to any power user. I'll post even more updates as I actually start to get this thing "conditioned".

Seriously, that's crazy. This is my face when I read "7,000 mAh": It probably turns your phone into a brick (with the added thickness and weight). My HTC 8S has a measly 1,700 mAh battery that can run out in as little as 8 hours. Usually though, it lasts me a day and a half with moderate usage. I'd gladly use a brick if I don't have to charge it every 36 hours. I'd be happy with 60 hours or more.

If you have your device rooted, you should boot into recovery and clear your battery status information >.<
Should help you obtain better information faster >.<

Exactly my thoughts. All my friends are like, " just get a spare regular battery so that you don't have a big phone." But I'd rather have a slightly bigger phone, and have the possibility that with regular use, I'll get 5 days per charge. If I could get almost 3 with the stock battery, 5 isn't too far fetched.
One of my friends was actually really surprised that the phone isn't that big. He's getting the GS4 when it's released, and is now hoping that a battery this size is released for it.
My main fear is that after a month or so, this battery somehow loses it's holding capacity and starts to just lose charge at some insane rate. Everyone's review I've read for this hasn't hinted that it will, but it is still a fear.
But the biggest plus with having a battery this big, is that there is no more worry about running out of a charge. Normally when doing anything on my phone, there is that little voice in my head saying, " If you are doing this, you will lose blahblahblah in power". But now, I can already feel that voice fading away

even if it's a really bad lithium battery it should have a minimum of 300 cycles, though probably 600.
honestly though, my ventoline disqus i keep in my other pocket is already thick enough.

Normal lithium rules apply, don't store fully charged, and absolutely don't store empty. hope the makers are smart enough to put good enough charging electronics and safeties in the battery. and if looks like it's bulging even a little or has white residue along the seams, throw it away safely in a proper flammable waste container.
remember 7000Mah is a HELL of a lo of energy in a lithium battery, if it blows it better not be in yoru hands or near your head.
