A Geek, 10 Feb 2014From your first comment,it's clear that you didn't know anything about it before tcool writes ... moreYes, I did mention the cradle before you commented that numbnut statement about you only knowing charging happens on a smartphone. Separate chargers have been around for YEARS. Now who doesn't know anything?
Those pictures are of my actual battery cradle chargers. Here's my Note 1's black battery cradle:
I've used battery cradles for over 2 years. Rarely used? I use it almost everyday and it just stays home most of the time. Of course it's specific for the battery. For me, the Note 3 I'd the only thing I need and the only device I carry, henceforth I only need to carry a thin spare battery. Not everyone follows my habit, and not everyone follows your general device use and carrying the bigger and heavier power bank just because you have a uni-bodied smartphone with a non-removable battery. If you bothered looking at the images, you'll see my power bank on the right of the 2nd image. So, it'd be better for me to carry a power bank and wait to charge my device for about 2 hours daily?
You did come here arguing that a power bank is better, and only paid trolls are appreciating the feature of removable batteries. Well, I've stepped up because I have a different view,and I hope Samsung keeps on this feature for the practicality for longer usage time without having to wait hours to charge with a power bank or plugging in a convenience outlet.
It would seem your only logic here is:
Removable battery user = geek = paid Samsung troll
Power bank > Spare battery (even for a smartphone having removable battery)
I'd rather see Sony thickening their Xperia line up with a 4000mAh at least and improve their battery consumption efficiency than carry the power bank to charge up daily.

An extra battery is big?because it has much more space.there are versions with 2-3000 capacity.thats much smaller.
Buying an extra accerory just for charging extra battery,which is rarely used.that's not reasonable.and I think it doesn't work with other devices.
fixed battery gives a better look to your phone and it doesn't loosen or sth(as you said it happens with micro USB port).and removable battery has advantage of changing the battery,wether it's finished or needs to repair.Can you tell 10 advantages out of these 2 categories???
I liked to have more argument with you,but I have to go to work,so I do not have time to answer you every time.So I leave here to do my work,and you stick to your work ,(commenting for Samsung),I don't know wether they pay you or not.

Really? does 4k shooting needs govt. permission or a license or special signals?
I just got my note3 n9005 last week and I must say that it's worth the price. Hoping for the Kitkat Update in the Phillipines.
Tcool, 10 Feb 2014I think it's a good idea having the extra battery and power bank at the same time during long ... moreI'm actually considering a mega power bank of 32,000mAh capacity. It cost US$60 only. It's heavy, thick and the size of an A5 notebook. That'd give me powered up for a week or two.
A power bank and battery cradle would be the best, and I use to do that with my Note 1 since it had short battery usage time. I'd charge the spent battery in my bag.
I am waiting for the rose gold black color with the 4k shooting support.

A battery cradle with the extra battery pack to be charge by a power bank is better than connecting the mobile phone to the power bank.
For the Sony Xperia user who thinks that an extra battery is only charged within a device, here's the concept of charging spent batteries with a battery charger cradle at home.
Here are the Galaxy Note 2 and 3's battery cradles that come with extra batteries each.
I can also charge my extra battery with the battery charging cradle plugged in with a power bank, inside my bag for those long travels.
You get full charge after only a few seconds of swapping to a fresh battery. No need to plug in to charge the smartphone with a wire sticking out like you have an umbilical cord out of you. This is the beauty of a changeable battery system than a non-removable one.
Using power banks require a bag or a big bump in your pocket. A single extra battery is all you need for a guaranteed more than a day's heavy usage without the extra heavy weight and waiting time on the go.
