Vanir has always been so bad with battery life for me. Stock battery and extended. Dies in 1 hour for stock battery. And dies in about 2-3 hours with extended. Very little sot. About 20 min

Wow I don't think it's very legit. It could be just above 2000mAh in real life and then couldn't hold as much charge after a while that's why the battery drained so fast. Not to mention the risks of using dodgy batteries [emoji46]

I think I bought mine from a Korean eBay seller for at least $30 or more. The battery is also NFC-enabled and comes with a back that added a bit of thickness so most gel cases could fit.

One other thing to note is that even with genuine batteries they will start to lose charge or can't hold charge like it used to after 2-3 years. That's why I think phones with removable batteries are better especially if you plan to use them for up to 5 years. You can just get a new battery after 2-3 years

I'm not really worried about this that much. Because I will be having an upgrade in august. So I guess I'll keep this battery I have. But I am getting decent battery right now with pacman ROM with stock kernel. With some init.d battery tweaks built into the ROM. And using app opps
