I'd like to see them make a extended battery and cover that keeps the water resistance, also maybe a slim extended battery(3k mah) would be a nice option for people to have.

I get at least 16 hours out of my OEM battery. For once, I don't need an extended battery.

I've had zl extended batteries on my S3 and S4. Got one for my S5, had the loose case issue and received my replacement.

Unfortunately, my battery stopped holding a charge (despite being charged for 10+ hours each night) so I had to send it back.

I'm not worried though, **** happens. I'll have a replacement soon enough and I'm sure it will be fine. These are really great especially when traveling, flying, etc.

i loose about 1% an hour. the case feels at least as tight as the one for the s3. I am sure i'll be able to video the whole of my sons school play. i chage every 3/7. I will probably swap to the old battery if i go on holliday and im near a pool. waterproofing is the one thing lacking but this would be hard to garentee by zerolemon, just would be nice if they could try and offer some protection.

This is probably not the right place for this but...

Is there a proven way to increase the signal reception when using this ZL 7500mAh battery, whether it be for the S3, S4, or S5??

I love the life that I get out of the battery in my S4 but my signal strength blows. Any fix to increase signal strength beside getting a thinner, smaller mAh battery (which I don't want to do)?

My S4 us updated to stock A4.4.2 with the FNB4 modem.

Purchased a white chinese replacement battery saying 4300mAh and was really surprised when I took away the sticker label (see picture). Looked almost like samsung original but details reveal its a fake. The battery has approx 60% capacity of the original (like 2000mAh), which is not bad considering its costs is a fraction of the original. But I am affraid the cycle life will be short.

Hello All,

Some quick facts for all on inflated capacities. For batteries with the same battery chemistry, larger dimension must be available to facilitate additional materials for larger capacities.

Unless we have some major breakthrough in battery chemistry which we are quite far from any mass production capable breakthrough, we can only resort to larger dimension batteries for larger capacities.

Unfortunately, we cannot make the phone water resistant due to the complexity / major production cost in making the battery case water resistant.

unfortunately you can't do much about it.

It got so bad with my s4 that i just couldn't be bothered using the extended battery even though the extra life was great.

it seems to be fine if you are in a strong signal area but in areas where i used to get 2-3 bars, it would sometimes not find any signal. This is due to the battery obviously blocking the antenna and therefore it doesn't work as well

I went to the extreme of getting a signal booster which improved things somewhat.

one word of caution.. the phone would still occasionally flip out on me when using the extended batt even though in a strong signal area and show no signal registered. not sure why this is but sometimes i get people telling me they get voicemail when i am sitting in a full signal area...
