Giveaway: Ontrion Galaxy S3 Extended Battery [Updated with winner!]

We live in an always-on mobile world, but that world requires a lot of battery life. Ontrion has many solutions available to keep your mobile devices running while on the go. For example, we rated the Ontrion LifeCharge Pack very high last year. We're also going to be doing a review of the Ontrion iPhone 5/5s battery case in the near future. Until then, we'd like to give one of our lucky readers an Ontrion extended battery for the Galaxy S3.

The battery includes NFC, contains 3,000 mAh of power to keep you running roughly 50% longer than the stock battery, and comes with a replacement door in white to account for the slightly thicker battery. It retails for $35, but we'll give it away to one lucky reader!

We're going to forgo the fancy social media requests this time; instead, we'll select a winner at random from the comments below. You can make one comment per day, and the contest will close at 11:59pm ET on Tuesday night. Good luck!

UPDATE: Congrats to warwagon on winning the contest! To everyone else, stay tuned as I'm sure we'll be giving away stuff again! :)

This would be a serious help for me. I need to live off my S3 and the battery life with the latest update is less than to be desired.

The official 4.3 ROM made my battery drain quicker so a larger battery would help me tons!

It's interesting you say that... It always seems to be the case that after every update, the first thing to suffer is the battery. There's just so much stuff running in the background, that I wonder if it's better to do a factory reset and then apply the update.

Would like to have this for my S3 , I recently unlocked it and activated on a month to month plan rather than being stuck in a contract with a new phone.

did you know that the energy used to produce a single battery is more than the energy the battery itself can produce?

Law of physics

If true, that's interesting

Maybe i'm been really stupid, but isn't NFC - Near Field Communication? And if so, what does the battery have to do with that? Surely it is the phone that has the capability and not the battery.

Yes, NFC is Near Field Communication. In the S3, NFC is supported in the battery, not on the phone. I can't say that I know WHY, but I'm sure there's a good technical reason. http://forums.androidcentral.c...-will-they-play-nicely.html

Well, you and me both have learned something new today

It seems (strangely) that they put the NFC antenna in the battery. I dont think its neccesary since it is very near field but good to know. You could problably (by the same theory) get a NFC phone case/cover.

Intresting though to know.
