Default My new battery door (after market)

I got it from ebay for about $8.00, and YES it does add some thickness. Feels nice and cold but it looks like aluminum cover sitting on top of regular one. Feels good to change litlle bit and it $8 it's not too much to spend

How easy is it to put on and remove? Will it get warped with repeated use?

Sure, http://www.ebay.com/itm/141158850925...84.m1497.l2649

Do not expect anything perfect, it's cheap but good to change for the price.

Little bit harder than oem (to put it on, needs extra press for click) and for removing you will need to use something like pry tool (forget about using nails), this thing is holding firm

Don't know I just got it yesterday. It does look like aluminum frame is just attached to top regular door. It increases thickness but I don't use any cases right now (expecting one in next 2 days)

Does it affect your signal any? A lot of people have said the aluminum frames, bumper or all around cases, seem to affect their mobile reception. Was just wondering if it did that or not.

I didn't see any difference while using this (except size and weight )

One more question, you put this over your regular battery door and not a wireless charging battery door? The reason I ask, I have the wireless charging battery door which makes the overall back a bit thicker and wondered if this would fit over this. Probably not but I thought I'd ask. Sorry for all the questions.
