I'm really beginning to feel that there must be some individuals posting inside these Zerolemon threads that are from the competition side. I say this because I finally got my 3000mah Zerolemon today and I don't have any bulging issues.
I was getting anxious reading all the negative impressions and reviews, feeling fully ready to return the Zerolemon and just buy the OEM battery and charging kit with my 50% coupon.
And to make it worse, my delivery was behind schedule and I only got the battery today (I was supposed to get it on the 5th).
To my pleasant surprise, the battery went in just fine with the sticker intact and the cover snapped on with no bulge. Just to make sure my tactile ability and vision was working correctly, I even had my wifey and mom examine the phone without telling them I had a non-OEM battery inside. Neither of them detected or felt any bulges.
It was, however, more difficult to seat the battery in compared to oem, especially the lower-left corner. I expected super-snugness but it wasnt as tight and bad as I expected. In fact, I had a harder time fitting in the 7500mah battery when I tried to install it for the first time.
I dont know why I'm not experiencing the bulging problems as others. My phone was one of the first batches that went out during the preorder period. Even my 3000mah Zerolemon battery must be one of the first batches because I placed my order for it the day the battery became available and it was shipped out the very next day (although I received my battery so late compared to others).
I do have one theory, though, as to why I may not be affected. Maybe it's because when Zerolemon assembled my particular battery unit, they tightly and flushly wrapped the sticker around the battery, enabling smooth installation.
I'm not saying that all the people who are complaining about the bulging problem are liars and paid-off people. But I have a hunch that we do have some of that type of people mixed in here. And I dont think it's a far fetched idea. After all, the aftermarket battery market is a big and lucrative one and I'm sure there are some desperate and deceitful business people out there trying hard to muck up the competition by spreading FUD to promote themselves.
Anyhow, enough about that and now it's time to see if this battery offers some improvement over the OEM.
I think I had a little over 2.5 hours of screen time here. I love this battery. It easily gets me through the day without having to worry about car chargers, etc. I would definitely recommend this to anyone not looking to add the bulge of the big daddy they sell .
First full day was a nice surprise. I got 19 hours (2 hours screen-on time) to 20% remaining, whereas I usually get to 14 hours with the same usage. Everyone's usage patterns are different so I wouldn't focus on the absolute # of hours but rather just the lift from the stock battery. Definitely worth the $12 from Amazon.
