Thumbs up GTMax 3500mAh High Capacity Battery + New Back Cover $12.99!

So I found this battery on Amazon about a week ago for $12.99.. Ordered it and I am extremely impressed. Running Stock Rom + Root, constant use daily.I was really getting pissed off with the battery that came with the phone, it just doesn't do it justice.

Pro's - Been using the phone (50% Brightness, Downloading videos, youtubing, texting, phone calls, tinkering with GO Launcher stuff, almost played through a whole game of Words with Friends) Came off the charger at 3 P.M. today, legit screen on using the phone action about 4-5 hours tonight and it's now 11:25 P.M., battery is just hitting 65%! Extremely impressed with the performance of this battery and would recommend it to anyone that needs some extra juice.

Cons - It makes the phone about twice as thick towards the bottom half (I actually like this, it makes it much easier to hold on to and just grip in general). Also adds a significant amount of weight to the phone but nothing annoying, just saying.

UNSURE - Not sure about the NFC Capabilities of the battery, no one around me here has a phone with NFC so I can't test it... Honestly for the performance I could give a S*** less about NFC whether I keep it or lose it.

<Amazon Product ID> (Too few posts to hyperlink yet): B005Q75A84

Link for purchase: http://www.amazon.com/GTMax-Capacity.../dp/B005Q75A84

I'll also upload a couple photos for ya'll to see what it looks like.

Awesome price! Great buy for trip battery.

Sadly with that thickness, I would rather club baby seals

Nice find, going to have to think about this buy some more.

so are you able to charge normally? or is it like the other batteries where it throws you into a boot loop?
The best advice ever

DONATE TO ME
Just got an extended battery myself. Yeah it's thicker but using a phone all day without worrying about charging it, worth it for me.

Yeah, I just ordered this one too.

I had one on my captivate and I really liked it.

What does it matter if your phone is thin but you keep getting warnings that you need to charge it?


On my captivate if I got down to half of the battery with the larger battery I didn't have to worry, I had good 8 hours of use left.

Just confirmed it does NOT have this boot-loop issue common with the aftermarket batteries. Operates the exact same as the stock battery, still unsure of the NFC capabilities.
