    I want to buy some extra batteries with charger for my S4 and found these on Amazon:

    - Anker® 2 x 2600mAh Li-ion Batteries for Samsung Galaxy S4, with Anker free travel charger, with NFC/Google Wallet [18-Month Warranty]

    - Hyperion Samsung Galaxy S4 2 x Battery + Charger (Compatible Samsung Galaxy S4 S IV SIV, I9500) 18 Month Warranty

    - Onite 2x 2600mAh Battery for Samsung Galaxy S IV / S4 I9500, with Charger

    Anyone have experience with these brands? The Anker one has NFC but the other 2 brands dont.

    Anker is pretty good. I purchased one of those external battery packs from them. The first one I got from them was faulty (wouldn't recharge) and when I contacted them, they immediately sent me a replacement.

    I used to have a Hyperion extended battery for my Thunderbolt. It was a 3500 mAh battery, but it didn't last any longer than the stock HTC extended battery at 2750 mAh.

    Cool, I've got the same responses at another forum regarding Anker. So far it looks to be the front runner. thanks!

    FWIW, I believe Anker is a Taiwanese company and their US offices are located in Fremont, CA. If they send you a bum battery, you could just drive over to their offices to get a replacement. :)

    I have a acesoft that purchased from eBay for my s3. Been a great battery so far (2 months old). Its a slim extended and the same size as stock but it lasts probably 10-15% longer. I will be buying one for my s4 when it arrives. Good battery.

    I don't know if they have them yet but "Laza zcell" batteries have always worked really well for me.

    Using one now in my s3
