My battery was fully charged on USB and after reboot discharged to 70%. On Hellfire 2.8 stable 4.4.2 KitKat with KT kernel with beta tweaks default fast charge. Chinese 2100Mah replacement. What gives? Anybody?

What are the suggestions for extended capacity for the GS3? And, that's what I figured after finding out about Chinese batteries.

If you are looking for an Extended capacity Battery. I would suggest a ZERO Lemon 7000mAh Battery. It may seem a bit large, but it is well worth the added bulk. I also saw that Anker is now making a 7200mAh Battery. I would also recommend staying away from the cheaper ( read cheaper quality ) Batteries .

Just to add, zerolemon also has slim battery's as big as stock but a little more capacity. No NFC, but two for 25$

Just opted for the Big Daddy and gonna give it a whirl. Saw some YouTube vids with 2 days longevity. Better than my two giving out in less than 1 day. Don't want to be changing batteries that often, especially when I cannot get even one full day on them. Thanks for the pointers!
