It's buried somewhere in the s3 master thread
Many people recommend anker, ive had good experiences with a brand called onite.
Both can be had on Amazon for about 20 bucks for a2 battery plus charger kit

Why not get a new Samsung battery? It sells for around $10 on Amazon.

The Anker ones, if I recall correctly, are larger capacity while still fitting within the original cavity (won't bulk out the phone and require a new cover like traditional extended batteries).

But I go with the cheap knock offs on ebay. In fact, my last 3 or 4 phones, I would buy a kit with 2 spare batteries + standalone charger (so one battery is always on tap and ready to go) for less than a single Anker off Amazon. Capacity was usually as good if not better than OEM.

Really?
I stay away from alleged oem batteries because you never know, you might get stuck with a real poc. Third party batteries at least you know what you're getting
