I havent heard of that but just placed an order for this one http://shop.brando.com/Power-Jacket-...26c1599d3.html

Its 4500mah and appears thinner. Heard good things about Brando who have been around for a while.

Just an FYI.* I finally got the battery, touch slow for postage. Took about 3 weeks.

Anyway build quality on first impressions seems good, nice finish.*

Doesnít have a strong click but nevertheless does connect the phone nice and secure.

I got the cover without a front flip section.

I used to have a galaxy so this phone is heavier by comparison but Iím used to the extra weight now however have to admit, this does make it a fair bit heavier.

Button on the case for charging is easy to use.

My drawback is the website clearly says data support is available but when I checked with the seller, they confirmed this isnít the case and will be amending the website shortly.

If you can get passed the weight issue and increased bulkiness its overall pretty good just without data sync

@Haldi4803

I have tested the battery, over all I concur that it is built well for the price (I got it for ~$20). However there are a few issues:
- The real battery capacity is approximately 75-80% of the Z2's battery. It charges the Z2 to about 80% total from full to empty so the capacity is more like 2600 mAh.
- The input and output currents are lower than what the Z2 can charge. It can charge at 0.8A and discharge at 1A which is not terrible but does take significantly more time (50% longer) compared to charging the Z2 normally.

I'm happy with the purchase due to the convenience of being able to charge the phone untethered whenever I want to prolong the built-in battery life. Usually I snap the battery in when I need to charge and take it off to charge it separately afterwards.

thx for the answers.

that seems logical you cant charge a 3000mAh battery with another 3000mAh to 100%, you will lose something inbetween.

Lucky i don't really use my phone much, so i get 3-4 days with low usage and the normal battery ^^

I'm extremely happy with my purchase price. I complained because their site clearly says data sync supported but it's not. They offered 30%. I advised still nothappy because site misleading so they gave me full refund and let me keep the product so for free it's fantastic lol.
