anyone use secondary batteries because of games?

Hi, I currently have Lumia 820 as my basic phone and i use a lot of data on it ( including games)and, of course, fast drainage become behoove. Battery always gets eaten up every midday, so i am thinking about getting some extra batteries, but not sure if it might bad for my phone? Any advice will be welcomed!

No i dont think it will damage, satisfied with my mpj, just every time put in another battery, i would wait like 1 min after unplug battery.

I'm a strong believer in buying a new battery whenever I feel the original isn't quite where it should be at that point I look for a good replacement and if possible a mugen extended battery and make the original my spare.

Don't have one at the minute though as my current phones only about a week old, can't see it damaging your phone though unless your buying poor quality replacements, if possible buy original or so far I've had good luck with the Mugen brand.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

I might get a juice pack which is a 2-in-1 iPhone case + battery. I'll then have 200% power supply

Yes, try googling Anker battery on Amazon.

They work great for my ipad and iphone.

Using one same as OP and the bulk is unnoticeable because I'm accustomed to it now.

Just bought two more batteries and a charger for my note 3. With 3 batteries, it should last a whole day even with hardcore gaming. Android is much better than ios in that regard. And 5.7 inch screens, and sd cards. And working hdmi, not lightning junk.

Glad I don't have to worry about ever charging my Note 3 with 3 batteries, never run out of juice and never have to be tethered.

Apple should consider a removeable battery option.
