I purchased this battery as a spare after losing my own somewhere in the house (don't ask :). I was somewhat skeptical buying it because of the fairly cheap price, but I hoped to find my other battery soon and thought to give it a go. Glad I did !! This battery seems to outlast my origional battery (now found), so I now have this battery as my main one and keep the genuine as a spare.

For the few quid it cost, this little gem is well worth the money. Both seller and Item are highly recommended.

After reading good reviews I decided to try this battery instead of an original Samsung. Bad mistake.
Nothing from it. Couldn't get anything at all from it. Even leaving it charging for a while, still nothing. I'll now purchase an original direct from Samsung.
Regarding Star e-shop - no complaints at all. I emailed and they replied the very next day offering a refund or replacement and refunded that same day.

Bought this battery as backup to the original Samsung.
One little problem I found with the battery was that it seemed to
be slightly smaller than the orignal. A sliver of paper under the
bottom end sorted it out. Found the capacity of the battery to be
more superior than the Samsung.

i used this for a week and hoped the charge would improve with time.. after a dozen full charge cycles though I gave up.. I get one day with the original battery while I never got more than half day with this one.. It was not worth the 3 pounds I paid for it..

This product is described as High Capacity and Extra Long Life - I have yet to experience either of these qualities and I've only had the product a short time. I cannot foresee the battery getting better over time.

Don't get me wrong, it's not that it's terrible, it's just that it's no better than the 4-year-old standard capacity battery I got with the phone.

To give you an idea of the typical battery life on a typical work day:

Phone is charged overnight to 100% capacity. When I awake at 7am I am informed the battery is fully charged and to unplug.

I eat breakfast and leave for work at 8am - within this hour I send maybe 3-4 texts, following which my phone is immediately locked to avoid unnecessary battery drain due to the backlight being on.

I bike to work with the phone in my bag, no music playing, just locked and unused. The Wi-Fi is turned off when I leave the house

I get to work and leave my phone on my desk and is left virtually untouched all morning - I have no need to text anyone in my job - occasionally I check it to see if I've missed a call or message, but this consists of merely pressing the home button, followed by locking the screen again.

Come lunchtime (approx midday) my phone battery reads approximately 60% on a good day, sometimes around 40%. This means that my 3-4 texts and probably unlocking the screen a further 2-3 times results in a battery drain of up to 60%

Also note that I never have any apps running and I regulalry clear the RAM to ensure minimal background apps running. Bluetooth is always off, phone on silent and Wi-Fi turned off.

THIS IS NOT NORMAL FOR A PHONE BATTERY - Let alone one that claims to be High Capacity and Extra Long Life

My existing battery for my SGS2 wasnt performing very well.... possibly due to using a cheap car charger without surge protection, so I purchased this battery.

What a difference.... my phone lasts much much longer now!!!

Highly recommended!

I ignored the comments saying that it barely lasted a day and that it's worse than the original Samsung battery.
DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE.
Awful battery life. I charged it for 10 hours prior to use as suggested but even after having it charging until midday, by 6pm the battery was down to 30%.
Complete waste of money, don't bother.

This battery is supposed to be better than the original one because it has bigger capacity. But it doesn't last longer than the original one. Which is big disappointment for the people want a longer lasting battery.

Even worse than the original battery which I've had for the last year. Used it for a day after charging fully and it had run out by the time I left work. I work in retail so rarely use my phone during the day.
