About Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Battery
A new Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini battery can be used either as a replacement or as a spare. If an error has occurred with your battery, purchasing a replacement can allow you to return your phone to its full functionality. Having a spare can allow you to replace the battery should it run out of power halfway through a day. Having a backup battery is useful during travel or any time spent away from a charging outlet.
The Samsung S3 Mini is originally sold with a Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery. This will provide the user with a stand-by time of up to 450 hours on 2G, and up to 430 hours on 3G. In terms of talk time, this means an advertised return of up to 14 hours and 10 minutes on 2G and up to 7 hours and 10 minutes on 3G. Battery life will typically depend on the manner in which the phone is used. Spending longer on the device will incur a smaller return on battery life, though the phone features a power saving mode which shuts down non-essential features. The biggest drain on battery life is usually the screen, with detailed power break downs in the settings menu illustrating which aspects of the phone are using the most power.
It is possible to purchase a larger battery for the S3 Mini, with 1800mAh and 2000mAh versions available. These will likely cost more and their use might affect the manufacturer?s warranty. If a battery has broken, it is advised that the user does not attempt to repair themselves and disposes of the battery in the correct manner.
