When it comes to batteries. Cheap is usually not the path you want to take.

The only battery i'd recommend thats cheaper than OEM is the Anker 1900mah. I've been using it and while it has some flaws like a lot slower charging compared to OEM. It holds charge quite well. I'd rate it at maybe 15% better than the 1650mah stock from my usage. It's not a huge difference but for $20 for 2 and a charger which is universal. It's worth it if you even just wanna try it out.

Otherwise, the only other battery i'd recommend is the samsung 2000mah one which is the best of both worlds in terms of capacity and size

i agree with pewpewbangbang, I have the anker 1900 and its certainly a lot better than the stock 1650 one, and at that price you cant go wrong. I get 2.5 days on moderate use, my wife who also has the 1900 gets a full day but she plays games on it for hours on end!

You don't need a extra cover for the anker 1900?

It's a tighter fit but it doesn't need a new cover.

Cheap battery replacements can not ever be better the OEM ones. Unless it's made in a control factory with strict guidelines which samsung employs, you better of searching for the original, I would go CarphoneWareHouse (UK) to get one.
