I'm thinking of getting one of those faster extended batteries for my S3 so I don't have to charge my phone as often.

There are a fee sellers on TM selling 4500mAh batteries for about $20. Had anyone had any experience with these or something similar?

Do you mean a larger battery that fits in the same place, a case with a battery in it, or an external battery? Suggest you look at Amazon reviews. If there's no Amazon review it's probably a cheap generic you should avoid if you appreciate quality.

04fuxake: It's a bigger battery with a cover.

I bought one of these off TM a month ago. Seems to last about twice as long compared to original that was 2.5 yrs old. Easier to hold too with thicker cover but is harder plastic and not as easy to get off. Was going to get an original but these are real cheap.
