Default Third party 3600mAh battery for the Captivate Glide

Are these batteries reliable, could they cause any voltage issues later on?

Agreed! I bought 3 batteries with a stand alone charger for 15$ and the batteries are 1500ma not 1650ma but for 15$ good enough. Gotta love ebay and Hong Kong items.

PS: The 15$ includes the free shipping.

How much more performance did you get out of it. Percentage and hours wise?

Well I'm a heavy user on some days and my job requires my cellphone, but I can go a full day without worry.

... this phone sucks power up. Which is kinda lame, but oh well I guess.

Just out of curiosity, why changing devices ?
The Captivate Glide has only been out since Nov 2011.
Was the additional 7mm an issue for pocket-ability or weight ?
