I was super excited about this, because I'm a big fan of extended batteries (have a 4,000mAh battery on my EVO3D) and like having a battery that lasts a really long time. We got 1 Day and 6 hours on the first charge, and 1 Day 8 hours on the 2nd! And that was with reading a book from the Google Play Store (HIGH Screen time usage) and also playing Jelly Defense for a while as well! This battery will EASILY get you through more than a day's use! Don't use it heavily, and it SHOULD last almost two days! I'll keep updating this as time goes on! :)

As you'll see in the video (I had no intentions of hiding it), I couldn't get it to fix perfectly. ONCE YOU put the TPU case on it, then it makes up for that. I don't know. For 20 bucks, it's worth the extra battery life, especially if you plan on tethering your device to laptops, game consoles, and etc... For an extended amount of time. I encourage you to watch the video and see for yourself! :)

This is my third day with the battery. It came with 50% power, so I charged it to 100% and then ran it completely to zero, then charged it up to 100% again.

DAY ONE

On its first charge, it ran for 19 1/2 hours, which was longer than the original battery but not quite as long as I had hoped for with a 3800 mAH "super extended battery." I then hit the internet to get feedback and suggestions from other purchasers of this battery. Some were unhappy with it, suggesting that you get what you pay for; these people returned theirs and then purchased the more expensive Seidio Innocell. Others couldn't have been happier. Still others suggested that you have to go through several cycles, draining to zero and then charging to full (or even past full). This advice ran contrary to everything I've read about lithium ion batteries, which supposedly need no "conditioning" and which are supposedly worse off it you either drain them or charge them completely.

Reading about how others had disregarded the conventional wisdom, with happy results, I thought I'd give it a try. I ran the battery till the phone died, then charged it up to 100%. I can't believe how much better my phone is holding its charge, even with several phone calls, at least one text and a few extensive internet searches. Keep in mind that I also got a little smarter about energy management. 4G LTE is a battery drainer, so I learned to toggle it to 3G during standby, as doing so has no effect on phone calls or text messages. I also turned off Data Enabled (Settings/Data Usage - More/Mobile Networks) which confined the updates to those times when I felt like turning internet back on for an internet search. These are simple and easy changes that only take about 15 seconds to do or undo.

The replacement back (supplied) is good quality - the plastic seems much like the original - and it fits nicely. With the battery installed, and the back on, the phone feels good in the hand; as expected, it's a bit heavier, but not annoyingly so.

I have had it only for a couple of days, so I can't provide detailed comments about its capacity. Battery Monitor Pro (BMP) tells me that the capacity is 2800mAh (not the advertised 3800 mAh) but to be fair, BMP says that it's not very accurate at first, until it's had a decent time to monitor battery performance; and Hyperion's instructions say that you should take the battery through five full cycles of charge / drain, and I have done this only once so far. So I will complete the 5 cycles, which will not only be good for the battery, it'll also give BMP more time to do its stuff; then, I may come back & edit this review.

However, even right now I can tell that the capacity is far better than the stock battery. Put it this way: one reason that I have only been through 1 complete charge/drain cycle is that it's taking so long to drain!! I drained it Saturday, charged it overnight, took it off charge Sunday 8AM, and now it is Monday 9AM, and I still have about 50% left. Wasn't using it heavily Sunday, but still, my stock battery would be long gone by now.

Finally - and very importantly - unlike many replacement batteries, this one is advertised as having Near Field Communications (NFC). I can confirm that it has it, and that it works (just tried Android Beam with a friend's phone - worked perfectly).

All in all, I am very happy with the purchase, and you can't beat the price (I paid $14.99).

EDIT, 8 days later.

By Joshua on June 23, 2012
From a full overnight charge, 8 hours, I was able to get 6 hours of use before it was at 11% remaining and crying to be plugged in. The standard battery gave me almost 8 hours on very little use. I let the battery run down completely and charge again, same results. So I am not satisfied at all with it's performance. The battery cover works but feels like it could pull away at any second, doesn't give me a secure click with the clips. I tested Google Wallet and that seemed to work. I have stock ICS 4.0.4 and was not using any weird app and I am in good LTE coverage.

So this battery performs worse than the standard battery and therefore is not worth the money.
