Default [Q] Extended Batteries that Fit the Original Backplate

I'm looking to buy the biggest extended battery I can find that is the same size as the original, as I don't want to add any thickness. What would be your suggestions? I would also need it to support NFC, and I'm not positive if the one I have linked supports it or not. I saw this one on eBay:

ebay.co m/itm/3200mAh-High-Capacity-Extended-Battery-for-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-SIII-i9300-MPJ-/181068307894?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item2a28831db 6

(Space between the co and m in com because I can't post links yet xD)

Thank you guys for all your help and I look forward to your suggestions!

all of the ones your find won't have better performance. in fact, they will probably be worse, because they're nothing more than cheap knockoffs.
do you really think some unknown Chinese company can pack more power into a battery than Samsung? the answer is no

Only batteries you'll find that fit the original back cover, mildly extended and are not cheap are hyperion 2200mAh batteries on amazon. Look em up and they have reviews on YouTube.

Just understand that asking for a higher capacity battery the same size as the original is like trying to put 2 oz. of water in a 1 oz. cup. Ain't gonna happen!

I've been using the Chichitec 2500mAh 3.7v for about 4 to 5 months now, and I gotta say they last longer than the stock battery. I usually get at least 4.20h of screen on at low brightness.
