5200 mAh Battery For Samsung Galaxy Note

I just received my new 5200 mAh replacement battery and back for my SG Note. Wow!


*almost twice the battery life compared to OEM
*half the cost of one OEM battery
*reduced need for recharging or swapping batteries


*added weight
*added thickness

While the negatives will most certainly be a deal breaker for many owners, there are some who place the positives on the top of their wish list, such as those who travel and are on the road frequently.

I prefer to think of the Note as a powerful mini-computer that can make phone calls (most often using a Bluetooth earpiece). My laptop stays on my office desk. My iPad sits on my living room table. My Note is my truly portable all-in-one device. Having all of the extra juice is a bonus, and for me I'm willing to take the slight trade off in thickness and weight and enjoy the true benefits of maximized up time.

The problem with these batteries is the added thickness. Cases are made for the normal sizes.

Instead of buying a phone specific battery I merely buy a battery that can be used to charge any portable device via a usb cable.

I only use these in case of emergencies or on a plane, etc.
