Does this replacement battery seem okay?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The Question:

Would you recommend this 2430mAH battery as being a suitable battery which would work well with my SGS2?

If not could someone suggest a large capacity battery that would work with my SGS2 without changing the size and design of the phone?

The Reason:

I have a new Samsung Galaxy SII and I'm loving everything about it, I can't even moan about the battery life, because as I mentioned in my 'Recommend me a phone' thread (again thank you to everyone who helped me decide on this phone); 48 hours on after charging and medium use and it's still got 30% charge.

Much better life and a much better phone than my iphone it replaced :d

Anyway I'm going to New York soon for 5 days (Might not be big news for all my american ocn friends, but it's a massive thing for us in the UK to visit the US) and I want a spare battery that would last me as long as possible with minimum ammounts of recharges while away.

I've seen a massive 3500mAh battery that came with it's own customer back cover because its that big, but it's just too big and ruins the design for me.

So yeah if anyone could help me out with the question above I would be really grateful, Thanks.

I've checked out all the feedbacks and out of 60+ feedbacks, only 1 is negative moaning about delivery and 1 neutral saying it doesn't seem to last any longer than the standard battery. However with ebay feedbacks they are not very informal of the product and people leave them usually as soon as they get the item and don't give them a good testing first.

Most feedback says it works, however the only useful feedback is a couple of people saying it does last longer than normal and one that says :

"this battery is awesome it last for years!!!!!!!!"

I don't think I can quite trust this bit of information to be accurate but I thought it was worth quoting

Again any suggestions would be great if it's not worth getting.
