Samsung Galaxy S3 – battery booster

I am quite happy with my S3 mobile; expect the daily charging routines that are needed every night with an average usage time per day. When I start utilizing my GPS I can even watch my battery being sucked; only lasting for two or three hours. The standard accumulator cell that is shipped with the Galaxy S3 is a Li-Ion one with only 2.100 mAh.
I just stumbled upon a Zerolemon battery at Amazon with a capacity of 7500mAh what is ~257% plus compared to the original one. Couldn´t prevent buying one for testing purposes. When I got the package delivered, I changed the battery, lying down the mobile for a ~12h charge cycle.
You can find my first impressions of the new battery here.
The battery package includes a non-slipping plastic case which is covering the mobiles backside, adding even some protection to the sides and top, as the S3 is encapsulated by the case. The case touches valuable, even better than the original one. But this is, of course individual opinion. The “new thickness” of the Galaxy S3 is 1,7cm, compared to former 0,86cm, adding 98% of thickness on the thickest part. And this is of course a very important factor. In my opinion the S3 is still able to be carried in the pants pocket. My old Nokia 6630 was even 2,4cm thick!
Another point is about the enormous weight, the battery comes with 233g or a plus of 75% in overall weight of the mobile, including the cover! The original weight of the Galaxy S3 is 133g!
Summarizing, after using the new battery, now for more than two weeks I would recommend the overall package. It increased my battery live time by a factor of three, offering > three days of average working and surfing. I went through only four charging cycles in that time, recognizing, that after the third cycle the full capacity limit seems to be reached.
I would also recommend drawing down the battery to about 1-3%, before charging it again during the first few cycle.
