    The battery of my S4 run out really fast.

    I need an extended battery.

    I read the price range is big difference from different brand!!

    Hard to choose the right one, but atleast it should not like a bomb on my pocket

    Welcome to the forum

    A spare battery may be a better idea than an extended battery. At the moment the extended batteries are all larger than the original and require a different back cover for the phone because of the increased size.

    How fast are you going through a charge? There may be a reason/solution that could help.

    How fast does it go? Extended batteries are awesome if you don't mind bulk- if you do mind bulk you can pick up the extra batteries /dock chargers.

    I think you have a problem that needs to be fixed rather than looking for additional power. My loss is 4% over night, never more. That's with WiFi and GPS on, just sleeping.

    Yes it is. When looking at battery use overnight what are the top 3 items?

    I'm using the stock ROM and a lot of the settings are on however much of what I do on the phone is on--demand rather than automatic. As an example, I only get mail when I open my mail app so I may be considered an extreme battery saver but your use is off the charts.

    But that doesn't account for the sleeping nighttime use.

    That is definitely a phone issue, however Seidio makes a extended battery and case. You pay a bit more but they're excellent quality

    Sounds like you have a rogue app or maybe even a hardware issue. You may want to look more into those before investing in an extended battery. I mean if it's eating up to 40% during the time you sleep then you'll just end up saying the extended battery isn't lasting as long as it should be, and it won't as long as this odd issue remains.

    Try downloading a battery monitor app such as GSam. It'll give you a breakdown of what apps are eating up your battery the most and so on. If it's not a rogue app then it could very well be a hardware issue that should be brought up to your service provider or Samsung.

    You may need to consider wireless charging as a backup solution.I use my CHOE Qi wireless Charging package from amazon with my Galaxy S4 and i really like it.
