How long should my Samsung Galaxy S4 Extended Battery last?
Our extended batteries are twice the capacity of your original battery. But in terms of actual hours, the average user sees about a 75% increase in battery life compared to your regular battery. Some more battery conscious users have even received 40+ total hours of battery life. It depends on charging habits and your smartphone usage habits.
How to maximize my Galaxy S4 extended battery potential?
To get the full extent of your new battery, please follow the conditioning cycles and follow the instructions found in your packaging.
How long should I charge my extended life battery for Galaxy S4?
We recommend you charge your battery for at least 8-10 hours. Even when the phone says 100%, keep charging the full 8 hours. If you don't, the battery will show that it is draining quickly.
Your phone will take a little while to adjust to the new battery capacity. The phone will think that it is fully charged but it is not. The battery will slowly charge the rest of the way all night.
Is this Samsung Galaxy S4 extended battery bigger than a regular battery?
This battery is twice the capacity of a regular battery. To fit in all that power, the battery is slightly thicker than a regular battery. Your old back plate and existing cases will not fit the new battery size. After a few days or even hours you will adjust to the added weight.
Why is my Galaxy S4 extended battery not holding a charge?
The most common reason a battery doesn't seem to be holding a charge is due to the battery not being charged the proper amount of time. If you don't fully charge the battery it will show that it is draining quickly. The other reason could be a bad charger, a low-quality cable, or keeping your phone in a really high or really low-temperature environment.
My Galaxy S4 battery has a bulge in the middle. What does this mean?
