Default GS4 Extended Battery Recommendations Please

Hi all,

Looking at maybe getting an extended battery for my S4, but I want to keep it as slim as possible, while also being worthwhile having though, no point something with a useless battery gain

I really like the design of this one where the phone sort of 'slots' in for two reasons:

1. I think you can use the original battery as well as the extended?
2. I like the way it doesn't look like it will add too much thickness

Only thing is that has useless reviews

Does anyone have one they would recommend?

Thanks!

I had one similar to that. I don't think it's worth it. It gets hot when it charges and it doesn't feel like I'm getting full extended battery cause charging and using your phone cuts the battery imo. I'd just get a regular extended battery. I have this case it's expensive but I like the size and it does add extra battery. It's uNu Unity Samsung Galaxy S4 Battery Case [Black/Silver] - External ... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GBHRHHK/..._GvRjtb1C8GNQN

Other than that I was using the hyperion 7200 mah battery for awhile. But the unu is my favorite at the moment because of the size

Thanks for that

Hmm that unu does look quite good, if I'm correct it only adds ~1cm to the phone?

Looks very very nice actually! I think I'm going to leave it though, had a think and I'm always near a computer to charge my phone, or in the car, seems like 40 that can be spent/saved elsewhere

Thanks though
