As for the extra charger its neat to take it on the go but I use my cradle charger for home recharging.

I think the 1800mAh Samsung battery is overrated just like the expensive Seido Extended Battery. The 1500mAh and this one both are made in china except this one might be third party because it does have www.chichitec.com printed in the back cover but in the end its just a battery with 200mAh more than Samsung. I might just have to buy this OEM Samsung 1800mAh battery that everyone praises just to see the difference.

Anyway this is just for those who want to have a little bit extra without the bulge of a extended battery cover. I am happy with it and just wanted to share and try it out has suggested in my other thread by a fellow member.

Test and see what kind of screen on time these are capable of.

If you've only used that battery for a few cycles, I'd love to see what it actually weighs in at over in my Phone Battery Review Thread

Question What programs to test with?

I will do it but don't no what apps should I use like screen shot apps or battery measuring apps. Can you suggest any free or paid apps on goggle play I should focus on so that I can post some screen for you m8's? Thanks for your input.

The whole idea of the 1800mAh OEM battery is that it fits with the original back cover not making it to bulky, the battery is actually capable of lasting all day with medium-usage. At least compared to my year old 1500mAh one

Battery Monitor Widget is a good one. You need the widget on your home screen for it to monitor.

The built in battery stats should give more than enough info. Post screen on time, overall stats, and the graph.

Updated screenshots as requested. How do I show off screenshots blown up inside the post instead of small like attachments?

Anyway can go a good 9hr+ even better than previous stated. One note when charging on USB I get 100%, after unplug I only see 94% (1880 mAh) don't know if this is because I charge in phone or I should use their wall charger to get the full 100% from point of turning on phone.

Now I hear theres a 2300mAh but reviews sound skeptic. Will have to do some more research, but I think I have bridged the gap with extended and slim using this battery.

You've asked at least three times. Maybe the guy just doesn't want to.
