How much SoT/battery life could I expect on a battery like these?
I got a RAV Power battery for my S4 off of Amazon for 12 EUR and I've been using it for a week, on stock vanilla firmware (but this is another story).
I get out in the morning at 8.30am and I use my S4 in the car for navigation (Waze) and music (TuneIn Radio or Google Play Music) for 1h a day (30 mins in the morning and 30 mins in the evening), then some calls, emails, whatsapp, etc. (no games or exotic stuff) and I usually get back home with a 40% battery around 7pm.
A colleague at work bought a Duracell after market battery for 24.50 EUR and he's not satisfied as the new battery gets very hot during simple use and he have to charge it at least one time during the day.
It has been just a week, but I'm pretty satisfied with this RAV Power battery!
