I was wondering the same thing. Seems too cheap to be that good though.

You have blatantly not used search button before creating this topic. Gold batteries and other after market batteries have already been discussed on many occasions. There just isnt any need for another topic just to repeat same things.

They're fake capacities and bags of sh1t!

^ exactly, stay away from these. Capacity number is made up, and in a number of tests I ran in the past, I wasn't even able to get 2400 mAh out of these.

If you're still looking for a good battery, search Ebay for "deep stretch" it will be a red battery. Best battery I have ever used, and I get one for any phone I use.

Apparently it's BS. I'd just go for Anker who is VERY reputable or zerolemon.
