Product Review: RAVPower® 3200mAh Li-ion Battery for Samsung Galaxy NOTE 3 III
I received a sample unit in exchange of this honest/unbiased review.
I am skeptical about replacement batteries. I decided to give this unit a try since thought would be nice to have a spare battery for my T-Mobile Note 3. I must say, I am totally satisfied with this unit, and it has replaced the stock battery, which it’s now the spare one.
– Performance: The RAVPower unit is able to charge form 0% to 100% in 2 hours and 10 minutes. It charges at a rate of 45.8% per hour using the original Samsung USB charger. More precisely, it charges 1% every 1 minute and 18 seconds.
Once I completed an initial discharge/charge cycle, the battery was able to last for an awesome 2 days, 3 hours and 31 minutes and still had 4% left when I took the screenshot. I gave the phone what I consider a “normal” use, meaning 30 mins talking time, lots of social network checking, moderate browsing mostly on WiFi.
The unit discharged at a rate of 2.4% per hour. 1% every 25 minutes.
The NFC work as the stock battery, being able to pair a Bluetooth audio transmitter and Beaming to my wife’s Galaxy S4.
Overall the unit is a great replacement to the stock battery. Initially I thought about just making the review and store this unit, but so far (1 week) it has outperformed the stock battery, making it my daily driver.
