No experience with those particular batteries, but I do have some experience with ebay batteries in general - again, not bashing this seller or this particular product, but typically what I've found is you'll get a 100% charge for the first week or two, and after that those batteries will degrade quickly. If you don't mind switching out batteries it may not be that big a deal to you, but getting my case off and back open and rebooting the phone isn't my idea of convenience. Personally, I'd rather spring for an external charger if I'm really in need of extra battery time...

Good luck with those

I also found this battery on ebay with a 3000Mah rating:

Unfortunately it does not come with the extended back plate for our phone but this is the correct battery model. Wonder how long this battery would last.

My cousin bought the 2x1800mAh and gave me one a couple days ago. My battery is still good but thought I'd try it out. On average I get about maybe 9-ish hours per charge. Over the past 2 days with the new battery, I got 7 hours. I use my phone a lot and I work in a building that's network-resistant so it gives my phone extra work trying to get a signal. Like Lookin4Trouble said, if you don't mind switching out batteries then it's not a big deal. But if my OEM battery ever dies, I'd rather waste my money by taking a take a swing at the monster 3600mAh Mugen battery.

But right now I am using the ORIGINAL Samsung 1800mAh battery of Epic-Touch-4G... It is slightly bulkier than the one came with glide... But fits TIGHTLY with the glide's original cover without any issue... Initially you may find it tough to close the back, but don't worry, it will fix like glove and phone will work perfectly... I am using this now in my glide...

The original glide 1650mAh battery + cover will have half or one mm play (gap) initially.. After placing the 1800mAh battery of Epic-Touch, that gap was gone and phone battery life is also improved a little bit...

Thumbs down
Ebay batteries are a gamble.
I purchased 8 AA rechargeables last year, they were advertised at being 2500mah. When I held them, I noticed they were too light to be 2500mah so I used a battery analyzer on all eight, the results were as expected

508
567
606
639
650
669
768
834

Ebay batteries are not recommended.

And has anyone tried Onite 1900mAh? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VN09Q4/..._am_us?ie=UTF8

I'm using it for half day now and it seems to be worse than the stock one - could that be true?

Ok after I erased battery stats and charged it it's much better. Will see how long it lasts.
