    ive has my S3 since launch date... its been rooted, unlocked and running SynergyRom nightly... i swear the battery just keeps getting better and better... finally i dont have to stress about using my device too early in the day in fear of running out of juice towards the end of the night of course if i get a chance to charge it for a brief moment during the day i do, allowing me to have my device with me over 12+ hours easy

    Well, it looks like that cycling thing did the trick. 16 hours of use and the battery is still at 47 percent. That's the best I've seen yet!

    Glad it's working for you. You should do that 2-3 times in a row. That will fully condition the battery. You'll then be good for about 3 months. Then repeat to maintain.

    Still don't know why the manufacturers make these smartphones knowing full well that BATTERY life is very important. Baffling ???

    Price went up on the charger and the battery, usually it's the opposite.. In paid 21 for the oem battery and 3.85 for the charger.. I love having the spare around. I hardly charger at all now just at night, no more bump charging during the day. I'm sure it will save my charging port as well.

    I put my S3 threw some heavier usage today. Watching youtube videos, fair amount of web browsing, and a lot of video recording. Still got over 13 hours out of it. Forgot to take a screeen shot tho :/
