Hope this site is still active for the S3!

I recently signed up for a Pay As You Go Plan as a backup phone number using my old Verizon S3 which had been sitting around for 3 years without use. I noticed that the battery (original 2100mAh that came with the phone) has bloated a bit and it holds charge for less than a week even without any usage. I purchased an OEM battery from eBay but that lasted even less between charges! I would like a battery that would hold its charge for over a week before requiring a recharge. I would like to avoid having to have two batteries and swap them during the week.

I looked up the suggestions on this site but many of them (Hyperion, Anker, ZeroLemon) are no longer available. I found only the following batteries on eBay.

4800mAh High Capacity Battery + Blue Door For Samsung Galaxy S3 SIII i9300
X Power 4800mAh High Capacity Battery + Blue Door - Samsung Galaxy S3 SIII i9300
EXTENDED 4300mAh Battery + Cover for Samsung Galaxy S3 SIII i9300 T999 L710 i535
4300mAh Extended Battery for Samsung Galaxy S3 Blue Cover Dock Charger

Can anyone recommend any of the above or any other battery? I would like it to last at least a week between recharges. Also, I would prefer not to have to pay more than $20 for it if possible. I am in the U.S.

No, I have not used either one, but they both have decent reviews.

Thanks StoneyJSG! I had given up since not receiving any reply for two months and was pleasantly surprised seeing your response.

The battery at Gorilla Gadgets looks interesting. I will check it out.

Purchased the Gorilla Gadgets battery from WalMart (here).

Received a black back cover instead of blue one. Otherwise, the battery appears to hold significantly more charge than my original battery. After over 4 days after charging, I still have 75% charge left. This is with no use except for turning it on once or twice a day to look for missed calls/texts. It will easily surpass the 7-days I needed so I can charge it once every week or so!

Thanks again OP!

P.S.: Gorilla Gadgets sent a blue battery cover for free!

Battery held charge for 14+ days before reaching 5% level. Very satisfied so far. Will update post if I see anything different over the next few recharges.

Thanks again StoneyJSG and Gorilla Gadgets!
