Default Replacement Battery + Qi insert in original cover

So there are a ton of threads on replacement batteries, but I couldn't find a specific answer to my question.

I want a replacement battery that fits with a Qi receiver under the original back cover plate. I've noticed replacement batteries are often thicker than OEM.

Currently: I have the original samsung battery + Nillkin Wireless Charging Receiver. I can fit both of these under the original back plate and in my TPU case. HOWEVER, when I put in my Anker 2600mAh will no longer fit. The Anker battery is actually thicker than the OEM battery...just enough to cause problems.

Anyone combine a replacement battery + Qi receiver and still fit it in the back plate?

I've had no luck with replacement batterys for my gs3. They never last close to OEM. Even the big ones don't last any longer. Have you looked into just getting the OEM Samsung wireless back cover instead of the insert. Sounds like that would solve your issues.
