Default AT&T Spare Battery Charging System

I have a friend that works at AT&T and he just sent me a pic of this product they just got in. It is a spare battery charging system with the spare battery included and it is listed at $49. It is on the AT&T website just Google "spare battery charging system galaxy note at&t" and it is about the 6th one down.
(Sorry I'm a noob and can't post links.)

Does anyone have this? Is it worth the buy?

personally I'd buy something similar from amazon or ebay before I blow $50 on a charging solution...

OEM original is a huge ripoff!
I bought this, 2 battery with battery charger for only 14.99$ !
I used this battery for 3 days now (I charge it nightly when I go sleep),
and I can't tell the different between this cheap battery and OEM original!
this cheap battery lasts just as long as original OEM!
the battery also weight the same as original, it's possible the battery made by the same company, just a different label.
battery charger works on AC and on car with microusb charging!
I highly recommend it!

The product has been in stores at launch date of the g-note, don't know why your friend's store just now receiving it. As for the item, it does what its design to do. Just make sure to connect it to a charger with more than 500mA or else it will be an all day process. I wouldn't and didn't pay $50 for this product.

If you want the OEM one order it from amazon instead. I bought mine for $30. Better off saving the $20 + tax vs buying it in store, you can pretty much buy 2 for the price of one.

I appreciate the responses everyone. I think I will stay away from it now and look into some other power solutions.

Update us later to see how the batteries hold a charge after some use. Seems like a really good deal

Not that I'm questioning u and ur after market battery, just heard a lot of bad things about non OEM batteries. They may be cheaper but they don't last as long as the OEM ones even if they are larger mah batteries

not all non-aftermarket are junk.
I used to have aftermarket battery for Sony x1,
that battery rated the same mAh as OEM
but battery is much lighter and doesn't hold that much charge.
this aftermarket battery for note is heavy, weights the same as OEM.
I have been using this aftermarket battery for 4 days now, it lasts the whole day
I have no need to swap to the other battery. (I charge phone nightly when I go sleep)
