I noticed that my two 1800mAh batteries have the same serial number, so if anyone else purchased from mobilecityonline.com and cares to check, mine are both TH1B907FS/5-B

Sorry to anyone who bought these on my recommendation for leading you astray with this. I emailed mobilecityonline.com, and will let you know what I hear back if anything. And have updated OP.

I heard back from mobilecityonline.com and they said to call Samsung about the sn, but they only sold genuine OEM batteries. I still haven't had a chance to dig deeper, but I agree, the better life is worth the $20 all day long even if it is a fake.

I wonder how do the anker 1800 epic touch batteries compare to these. They are a little cheaper than from what I've heard.

I read somewhere people aren't getting as long out of them, but are happy enough since they're so cheap.

Unfortunately I still haven't contacted Samsung about these "OEM" batteries...

I having opposite results. The Anker last a hell of alot longer than this fake OEM with the same s/n. The OEM/fake is no better than my standard 1500.

Are you using Norton Utilities to determine battery capacity? It doesn't matter how big or small your battery is, Norton will always say 1500.

This really works! My phone is usually dead by 8pm. Now it at 34% after 14 hours unplugged.

Bought it on Amazon. Battery is visibly thicker and heavier but fits perfect. Advertised as OEM but I suspect otherwise. Picked up the tartan case as well and it feels like I have a new heavier phone. Thank you all!
