Default Zerolemon 7500mah battery (review somewhat)

Ok today i got my zerolemon samsung galaxy s5 7500mah battery, all i got to say is that thing is big and bad, the one thing i really don't like is the way the tpu case fits a bit loose around my phone, for those wondering about the heart rate monitor it is easy to use since your finger lands on the sensor, the phone don't weigh too much as i thought it will, but i will post more after the first charge cycle

My brother had one of these on his s4, and it reminded me of this image. I just don't get it. If you manage your device and ensure that you disable unused applications and services then you can easily get a day of use. Tripling the size of the phone vs. tweaking what it actually does. To each their own, either way thank you for the review, I'm sure that the case fit issue is valuable information for those who are looking at these as a purchase option.

Depends on usage. I use mine all the time for work and I can barely get through a day without needing some extra juice. So if you are one that NEEDS an extra battery like this its perfect.

I loved mine for the s3. The case felt a little loose on it but i still got used to it. I am concerned by the last of waterproofing but if the battery performs will probably get one. Please let us know asap how it performs.

That's a little overkill, don't you think? Even heavy smartphone users get a day's (10-12 hours) of use out of their phone. I mean that big of a battery would seriously get annoying to me. Turn your brightness down man.

I get about 8hrs regular battery, even with 25% brightness. Power users we are and that juice is what it keep us away from being attached to a charger... Attached to a wire.

I got my pre-order on the 16th, And I'm returning it, I'm hoping I got a defective case & battery.

Case doesn't seem to hold battery in that well, I can knock the back of the case and the phone will reboot or shut off completely.

The case seems very loose along the sides as well, I think due to them packing the box and & battery inside of the case while shipping which seemed to stretch the case out a bit making it loose on the sides.

I'm going to ask for a replacement, if it's the same issues on the next one I'm asking for a refund.
