Default 3250 mAh battery review (stock battery size)

It's getting late......after a long day waiting for this 3250 mAh battery to go flat, here is my review for what it is worth.

I have been searching for a month to find a battery that had the capability to last me all day. Not a bulky one! One that would fit within the original case. Not make my phone look pregnant.

I wanted a battery that i could Take off charge at 8am being able to last me all day, with LIGHT to MEDIUM usage (not heavy use!), right up until I went to bed at 10 and put it back on charge.

Is this the one??? (battery photos below)

I sourced this one. It just about fits the phone. I had to peel the battery label off at all 4 corners to get it in. It's fits in fine with standard Samsung back on. No bulge. I put in straight into my phone and charged it up to 100% then took it off charge and restarted the phone.

I'm not expecting amazing results on this first drain as I am more than aware it will take 3 to 4 cycles to gain it's full effectiveness. I am however expecting it to beat my standard battery display time on this first drain as it holda 34% more charge and then improve again after 3 more days use!

My stock Samsung battery lasts normally 4 hours display time with light to medium use. I have google location turned off, brighteness to auto and i am running gingerbread LA6. Full Samsung stock fresh out of the box. No root. No mods at all. And I have all the Samsung crap turned on and registered. I have google email with 2 accounts running. I play the odd game, and text and email like crazy. I used Ebay app heavily and also surf the Web lots. There are widgets on all 7 screens running and I always have a heavy usage live wallpaper running.

Phone finally starting to go flat... I will take screen shots of battery use and upload them. With my finally thoughts and finally 1st battery use screen shots as soon as it goes flat.

And obviously I'll look forward to your valued thoughts and views and make use of your experience as I'm new to this.......hopefully won't be too long!

Bye 4 now

1st day results in.

2nd day results in..

Photos of battery weights...

Is this the battery by any chance?

Have you come across any side effects or issues like overheating or anything? It seems to good to be true - 3250 mAh battery in the same size as the stock 2500 mAh battery?! I might buy one to try out for myself as only less than a tenner.

Ok..finally ran out of juice.

Remember this is not scientific just based on my daily normal use. But I did use my phone near enough full time today to make it go flat to see what it could do.

Again this is the first charge out of the bag. And I am interested to see how it gets on over the next few charges.

First Days below... More on day 2 tomorrow.

During the day there have been no issues at all. It's been cool all day, no strange out of the ordinary things happened at all.

This has been going on for years on Ebay. Fake batteries & fake memory cards from China. Don't know how they get away with it, but I suppose money talks.
