Battery Advice? Go large or go multiple?
 
Hey guys, wanted some quick feedback/advice before pulling the iddy bitty trigger and buying these.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S III (so sexy....I know) and I wanted to get an extra battery to extend the life time. Would you recommend getting a larger battery or getting multiple of the same batter if the costs are the same?

I'm looking on ebay and don't know whether I should buy a 4800mAh (with extended battery case) or 3 regular 2100 mAh batteries. Both are about $10. Almost debating on just buying them both, or at least the large one and one more regular one

Here are the links to both if you're curious:

4800 mAh
4800mAh Extended Battery for Samsung Galaxy s III S3 i9300 White Cover New | eBay

3x2100mAh
3 x 2100mAh Battery US Wall USB Charger for Samsung Galaxy s 3 III I535 L710 | eBay

I have the Galaxy S 3 too. I like to use a GPS program called alpinereplay. It tracks my speed and where I have boarded. Anyways... instead of getting a backup battery, I got an external backup battery. The brand I got is Anker. It is a very nice product and they ship really quick. Ordered Tue and had item by Thurs. The first one I purchased was the 3200. It will take the battery from completely dead to 98%. I liked the product so much I purchased a bigger one the 8400. This one can charge the phone completly 3 times. It may be longer after I brake in the battery. Oh anther thing I like about this external battery is that it has a USB port to charge anything.

I have not used an external battery but I dont think it would be that bad since the Galaxy S 3 is so thin. I put a bumper on my S3 just to make it a little thicker.

I saw that too but I was hoping to go cost effective and I thought it would be inconvenient to have to charge it. Or does it not work like that? Seems more convenient to just pop in the next battery, unless that's how yours works?
