Thanks for the responses guys. I think I got it lined out, I stopped using it and let it charge fully and now it seems much better. This battery is pretty sweet and I barely have a bulge at all at the edge of the door.

I've only managed to kill the battery twice in a week; that is when I was installing a new ROM (twice). This battery is great.

Past Phone Breakdown:

Samsung BlackJack 2 (ever reliable)
Samsung Mythic (Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy)
Samsung Captivate (problematic)
Samsung Infuse (Great day to day use phone, first since BlackJack 2 with no major issues)
Samsung SGS2 LTE Skyrocket (Pretty cool, drained a lot of battery.)
Samsung SGS3 (Got a free upgrade. No issues with it all. In my opinion, the first polished smartphone)

Current:
Samsung SGS4 Active

As you can tell, I am a Samsung phone guy.

Oh that's just ridiculous. This video is a demonstration of what happens when you puncture an over charged Lithium POLYMER (LiPo) battery. Our batteries are Lithium Ion (Li-ION) batteries. I can't post links yet but if you want to see a video of what happens when you puncture a fully charged Li-ION battery cell search for "lico 18650 cell puncture test" on youtube. I can save you some time and tell you that nothing happens and the battery is thoroughly compromised.

Now it is true that puncturing a Li-ION cell will make it non-operational AND if pressure is allowed to build up can increase temperature and cause it to "vent". But shaving off part of the hard plastic casing is not going to damage the Li-Ion cell. You would need to drive a nail through the body of the case to do that.

Anyone know how long this sale is going on for? I figure I could just call but it's much easier just to ask you gurus

Just walked in the door from the local verizon store its still on sale just picked up one the sales rep looked at me like i was crazy but scanned it and it came up 24.99. So now charging it and seeing how long it can go. Fits in my otterbox so not really worried about the little bulge at the side. As stated above does feel a little heavier than stock.

[QUOTE=still on sale just picked up one the sales rep looked at me like i was crazy but scanned it and it came up 24.99.[/QUOTE]

Same here. I bought this today from my local store in Atlanta for "half price". The folks in the store were very reluctant even after I mentioned the sale. They said they "thought that sale was over" and "we'll just have to see". I'm quite certain that if I hadn't mentioned it they would have charge me full price.

So Buyer Beware.

Sale is still going on but they wouldn't tell me or were not sure how much longer it was going for. I just popped into a Verizon store in San Diego and bought one. Charging as I type this.
