Just remember, you REALLY get what you pay for with batteries, especially ones that are cheaper than OEM yet claim to be higher capacity.

I did use some of those on my Galaxy S4 & also have a friend who use them. They work just fine, if we find the battery usage to be odd, we always know where to start.
I know there's a risk, but there's always a risk.

Yep. The cheap ones never have the capacity indicated, and if they even have a protection circuit, it's poor quality. This is why you see them blow up in people's pockets.

So far the 3300mAh don't impress at all.
w/70% left:

Full 4G Reception, 60 manual brightness, no wifi or BT.
34min celluar
1hour, 4min SOT.


With original battery (after a day):
w/70% left:

Full 4G Reception, AUTO, no wifi but BT ON all day.
1hour, 51min celluar
1hour, 2min SOT.

EDIT ---

I took the battery apart, because I was curious if it's actually was a smaller size than told (like ppl who took the mark of & then discovered it actually just was a sticker around the battery)

The result of it was, wow cheap quailty, also there is room inbetween the the caps. Anyway took some pictures for those who are interrested.

http://www.tmart.com/3500mAh-3.8V-Re...0_p268128.html now shows shipping from int'l warehouse (we will see...)

http://www.tmart.com/Universal-Comme...k_p172708.html is just a generic charger, nothing special.
Let us know how it is when you get it please.

I bought a battery from Tmart for my Galaxy S3 and let me say it was horrible. It was under $10 and it did state 3500mah but it lasted the same amount of time as the stock battery did.
