I just got the 2000 mAh International version today, and after giving up on trying to trim the back just right I just put the original backing on it (didn't have to force it)... looks fine and my case fits over it as well.

Plus I run Task's AOKP ROM, so charging is not an issue either.

Great thread guys, thanks for the info.

i think that is actually what has them held up is that the process to make them is much too expensive.

I think there is more effort in making other components on the phone more efficient such as the screen, modem, processor, and the OS in general, then there is for the battery.

Not to mention paint-able solar panels are something we will likely see on some specialty phones in the semi-near future to allow your phone to charge while in the sun or direct light. Wireless charging pads may be included as a stock feature. Most likely that will be the next big thing.

Improved battery tech would be an easier fix but if you look up the history of battery tech, there really hasn't been any significant improvements for the last 20 years. Pretty sad, isn't it?

There is only so much you can do to a galvanic cell only so many elements you can use that will yield a consumer friendly battery.... The battery of the future are capacitors with crazy dielectrics I can guarantee you 100%
But it will be years before something like this hits phones. I know they are currently building a cruise ship powered entirely by capacitors.
Also check out how rail guns work pretty cool stuff. Physics rocks! :thumbup:

Nope
I just got the international battery. It didnt fit. I tried shaving some the bottom nubs and various other places. Just doesnt fit. Would not recommend anyone even bother. Seems a crap shoot as to whether you can get one to work.

I ordered this anker 1900mah set from Amazon.

Two batteries and a charger for $20 that will fit with original cover.

Do you have the i777 or the i727, or are you saying the cover won't fit (not the battery)?

I was under the impression that off brand batteries were a NO NO, and only to use Samsung batteries. Isn't the Samsung battery a "smart battery"? Do these work the same as stock, any danger is exploding? If they are good, gonna have to get them too!

Anker is a good brand from what the reviews say. The battery does not have NFC so it will not charge with a Samsung based ROM.

If you have a case on yours, just do what I do: put the 2000 mah battery in and put the original cover back on it. It makes it bulge just a little, but it is not noticeable with a case.
