Original battery
- Slightly more out of pocket around 30 Usd ,
-Expect to get full 5000mah with 2 batteries ,
- Peace of mind
-does not make phone bulky + No issues with cases
- Technically never have to connect the phone to charger if u have a battery
charger( around 17 usd)
Cons - U have to carry the extra battery with you.
- have to switch around

Extended battery
-is for people who dont care around the extra bulk and weight it adds to phone
-Dont want to switch batteries.

In the past I used to buy extended batteries but realised that i dont make use of the extra power much.

Hence i got a 5000mah portable battery for use in emergency and dont have to worry about getting battery everytime i change a phone

Got this instead of the mugen. Mugen is just too damn expensive. Hopefully I don't have any horrible experiences with this battery.

Probably. It's 1/5 the price. My note will be HUGE with this battery

I used this battery the last two weeks and I absolutely love it.

Lasts a REALLY long time.

My only grip is that there's NO case that fits with this. I even tried making a rubber bumper using a cut up silicon case and it just doesn't stay on very well.

This seems to be the only real downside. No manufactured case will fit with this. Youll have to make your own.

Got this battery yesterday fully charged it overnight before using and today i have pleasantly surprised as it does seem to double the battery life.

I use the wireless hotspot feature a lot and with the regular battery my hourly drain is 7-15% per hour.
With this battery it is 3-7% per hour, so exactly double the capacity.
I was worried by the cheap price but it seems to work just fine (at least for now).

I normally like extended batteries (had one on my HD2) but THAT is simply too much! Destroys the look of the Note completely...
LG G2 "The Different One"
LG KK 4.4.2 (KOT49I.D80220b)

Asus TransformerPad TF300T "The Red One"
Asus JB 4.2.1 (10.6.1.27.5)

Samsung Galaxy Note ("The Attention W'hore")
Biftor SlimKat V6.0

HTC HD2 ("The Veteran")
HyperDroid CM7

I agree, but as for the quality of the battery (which is what a lot of people asked about) i was not disappointed.
