Firstly, it will make the phone both heavier and thicker as it has a deeper battery and a new back cover to enclose the battery. However, for me that isn’t a huge issue and actually works well. Maybe a slight downside is that because of the back cover now making the back of the phone the same depth all the way up it isn’t as easy to know which way up the phone is without looking as it was in the past, but again not a big issue.
As for power, after a couple of charge cycles the batter is lasting very well indeed and could probably last 36 hours of normal use without needing a charge- although I charge it each night anyway.
So, if you intend to keep your S2 for any length of time this is a great product. But I would not recommend paying this much if you intend to upgrade soon.
All the extra charging kits I purchased are now confined to the drawer!
It's hard to get accessory and I waited for approx 45 days for the order to get fulfilled.
I also complained about that
After that I got my product.
Excellent service.very happy on the deal.very much satisfied even when it was late.
I love mobile fun.
The back is slightly larger than the original but not so bad that its a problem and the benefits far outweigh the extra width.
My second concern was that my Samsung flip case would not fit after the extended Back had been fitted, but it fits perfectly. I would highly recommend this product.
With Auto brightness, Mobile data On, Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS & Sync Off, i will run out of Battery at around 19.00hrs.
Even though the increase in capacity is only 350 mAh, the real life scenario is very different. Now with Auto brightness, Frequent use of Wifi & Sync On, the phone keeps going till 23.30hrs with more than 25% still available.
So this should be good for a full day for an heavy user too.
Note: I listen to music and browse Web simultaneously for around 2.5 hrs a day with call duration of around 45 mins.
I haven't used this company before but I had no problems at all, I received my order within a few days and what I ordered is exactly what I got
Would definitely recommend it for all s2 users. :)
I needed a new battery, so I thought I may as well get the extended one, I'm glad I did!
There is a marked improvement over the standard battery. I've been pushing it since I've had the new battery.
During my 40 minute commute I've been using SatNav and Spotify connected to my car via bluetooth, to and from work. As well as some moderate to heavy use throughout the day and the battery will still be at around 40% at the end of the working day.
The phone is very slightly thicker, basically the phone is now flush with the bottom speaker section.
Thanks Mobile Fun!!!
I can use the phone as much as I like now. And I dont have to worry about charging it until the evening.
finally found it on mobilefun
placed order on 22//11/2012 indian website in.mobilefun.com and got it on 4/12/2012
its brand new and original smasung product
i will suggest everyone with galaxy s2 to buy this extended battery kit to improve battery life
also i would like to know which case fits the phone with extended battery kit since old case does not fit since ext4ended battery is bit thicker
I needed a bigger battery so I bought a non Samsung branded battery which came with the a different back. After about 4 months the back kept falling of & it got annoying.
I decided to go for this battery which was smaller than the other one I bought.
The back case fits perfectly as you would expect &I get a full days use with no problem
This means that the majority of standard cases will no longer fit, however if your case is a soft material it will probably be able to stretch a tiny bit to accomodate the increased thickness.
The battery itself came with a 62% charge and took about 6hours of heavy use to run down the first time I used it. After a couple of days of allowing it to go completely flat and fully recharging it I did notice a significant increase in battery life, even with heavy use as a Sat nav over a 5 hour car journey, which normally would have completely drained the battery I found it still had around 40% charge remaining. With data network mode de-activated and no wi-fi connection, the battery lasted me 2 full days & nights with minimum use and the occasional phone call/text, so there is definitely a very noticeable increase in battery life.
I just don't see why Samsung didn't include this in the original package to be honest.
Appalling battery life with the supplied 1650 mah.phone would die in less than a day.I'm a heavy user and although the iPhone wasn't the best battery I was tempted to go back to it. Mobilefun popped up in a search for something better.And opted for the genuine 2000 mah,which comes with a replacementack.Absolutely brilliant a bit pricey it so you think but well worth it for the extra day I get.Should be supplied.as standard. Phone is more solid in your hand,but watch the cases, the majority won't fit! Small price to pay!!
Well worth it and it was delivered within 24 hours. Perfect
Downside: Contoured covers don't fit. Not even my beautifully designed SG2 cover. However, I've got round that and custom made a flexible carbon cover for the back. Now my covered fits perfects. This 'fix' won't be for everyone though.
I very rarely do reviews for anything, so to do one for this battery proves it works. Buy it, you'll love the transformation.
Now, it lasts double than that.
Quoting on another review: this is the battery the Galaxy should have come as standard.
- Still very light weight
- Can just last 3 days on light usage (text, email)
- Can comfortably last 2 days on medium usage (internet, GPS)
- Can easily last the full day on very very heavy usage (Gaming, music, video)
Definitely worth the money.
the galaxy s2 wot a purchase,
i make and recive loads of calls
each day standard battery on fon
empty by 5pm. i get two days now with bigger battery.
It does make your phone more bulky and heavy but still not over bulky. I can also still use my soft plastic cover which many poeple say dont fit so no problem there.
Battery life is a lot better than default but still wont last a whole day with moderate use i.e listening to music, using wifi/3g and gps.
Im still happy as I now have 2 batteries now so im confident ill always have power.
I would recommend this over the samsung battery pack thing which is over £50.
Not too expensive and you should notice a big difference.
It is expensive but I found it worth the cash. Although the flip case I have now doesn't fit right and there aren't any other than silicone available with the bigger battery that will fit :(...
As a Samsung original product both backplate and battery are high quality. It gives a genuine full day's use with the phone, which already had reasonable battery life with the original battery.
the buld quality also improves, it makes the phone feel less flimsy and very sturdy .
a must buy!!!!!!!!!!
I would whole heartedly recommend this battery to anybody. I agree with previous reviews by them saying the phone actually feels better in the hand with the new back on - it does. Also the phone should of come with this battery originally - it should.
I must say I was extremely impressed with MobileFun's service. They deserve a 5 Star rating for quality. Ordered, notified of despatch and arrived on my porch floor all within 24 hours - incredible! Will certainly do business with again. Thank you very much
no more worries at not lasting 24 hours.
1300ma standard is taken to 2000ma with this kit
works for me , hope it works for you.
In realistic terms, I use my S2 to play 100 emulated psx & n64 games as well as having a bright manga reader on most of the time. the phone can handle everything I throw at it (including calls) for 12 hours, 14 if I turn off the wifi :) Awesome.
This battery does what it says, but I think I run out my battery like using petrol in my car with the school runs.
At least it last for more than 20hrs straight without me needing to recharge it.
Is there a case (leather one) that will fit the extended battery and phone? If you know one, please let me know.
This is my 3rd day with this new battery and I'm on 1d 18h and the battery is on 31% that is just crazy.. I'm gonna leave it off charge all night and see how it does in the morning.
On Monday I tested the phone out by leaving on 3g and gps for the vast majority of the day.. I browsed the internet and updated my twitter quite a bit and by like 8pm it was on around 60% which again is amazing.
So performance wise so far I'm blown away.. this should sooo come as standard. Fit wise it fits perfectly.. the lil indent in the original back cover is basically filled out so the black just flows.. it feels nice in the hand.. adds a nice bit of weight that doesn't make it feel like it will fly out of your hands.. plus it fits my s-line gel case still.. although I kinda don't mind it out of the case now as it feels nice to hold.
A+++ product.. quick delivery.. well worth the money.
Quick postage, no delivery problems.
I have pretty much maximum power saving on. No wifi, no satnav, and data only enabled when I need it (seriously, what's the point in all these if it's just sat in your pocket simply waiting for calls and texts?).
To say this is the first charge is quite impressive. Perhaps it's more to do with my usage patterns, but it feels like the difference between the 1650 and 2000mah batteries is much larger.
Samsung should just ship the phone with this as standard. I really don't get why you would care about how thin the device is when it's other dimensions are so huge. Give me battery life over a few mm thickness any day.
The new cover fits flush with the raised bump on the bottom of the phone, which I think looks better, as well as providing a bit of protection from flat surfaces for the lens
On one hand, it's given me another 25-50% runtime on my Galaxy S2 - I use mine a lot and can now go nearly 36 hours on one charge where as I struggled some days to achieve 18 hours between charges.
The phone is actually much nicer to hold with the extra weight/bulk and is less likely to fly out of my hand when hurriedly removed from a packet.
The flip side is purely aesthetic - it has lost its wow-factor and super-slim feel. To be honest, if the Galaxy S2 came like this buy default you probably wouldn't even raise it as a concern.
As the new battery/case thickness doesn't exceed the original maximum dimensions of the Galaxy S2, the phone still fits my Brodit car mount perfectly.
Although initially disappointed by the results the battery does need a good week's worth of discharge / charge cycles before you start to experience longer run times. If you have a rooted phone, don't forget to reset the battery stats after around a week.
Writing this review I've actually talked myself out of being unsure about the battery and I would recommend the purchase if you too can get over loosing the ultra-thin feel of the S2!
Previously my phone could be fully charged at 5pm and with moderate use it wouldn't make it to bedtime. I've no such worries now and don't have to panic on a night out.
Only four stars as Samsung should have included it.
Therefore, my only remaining option was to consider Samsung's own higher-capacity battery.
I struggled to justify spending the best part of 30 quid on a battery which, frankly, should have been included as standard with the GS2 handset. Nonetheless, my frustration with the standard 1650mah GS2 battery's duration eventually swayed my hand and I shelled out the money for this 2000mah Samsung battery.
After a couple of weeks use, have I concluded that the expense of the 2000mah battery was actually worth it, in terms of the length of time I can use my phone between charging? Well, sadly, NO. The increase in usage time, seems, subjectively at least, to be marginal at best.
There's nothing wrong with the quality of the product, it's just that it offers such a small increase in usage duration that the net value of the considerable investment is questionable. I don't absolutely regret buying this battery but I wouldn't buy another one if faced with making the decision again.
The battery is amazing and is giving me 4 hours more life than the standard one, so it can keep up with a heavy days usage.
My 2 battery covers(Leather and Rubber) fit fine despite the now more sleeker backing of the phone.
Great buy, if you have a Sii, this is a MUST HAVE!
Contrary to other reports I am also able to use the official Samsung desktop dock with the battery.
I can, with normal use get a couple of days out of the phone now compared with going for the charger at anytime from 5pm! Even with heavy use on a recent training journey, watching a movie, listening to music and regular use of Whatsapp the phone made it to the end of the day.
All in all I am very pleased with the kit and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone that has this phone.
One downside is that you have to forgo the use of a case as I am not aware of any that fit with the extended battery fitted, that said its still a brilliant addition to my S2, and you'll love it too!
The battery life as now been extended over a day and 1/2, whereas before I could barely go through one day traveling
Regarding installation, the phone feels good with the bigger battery. A couple of my Galaxy S2 using friends didn't even notice the change when I handed them my phone. I sense that Samsung designed the phone like this then made it thinner to get the "thinnest smartphone" accolade.
My tight case still fits ok too.
All round, money well spent.
The replacement back slightly recesses the camera lens and LED flash, so they're protected when the phone is put on a flat surface.
Additional weight isn't perceptible (at least not to me) but extra battery life is and is always welcome!
The Galaxy S2 is a brilliant phone and this Samsung extended battery kit makes it even better!
