We all know just how powerful the stunning new handset from Samsung is. It’s got a 1.5GHz processor, quad-core CPU and a Super AMOLED 4.65” capacitive screen that runs on a 2,200mAh battery. Whether you’re a heavy user of all of the different aspects and features of your phone or a light one that needs it to last more than a day, then you should read on.

As you know, there have been 10.1 million handsets of the Galaxy SIII sold in just 7 weeks. That’s an incredible number but already people are noticing the need to have to recharge a little more often than you’d expect. However, this is mainly due to the size of the screen and how much the new Galaxy can do. It’s not a flaw as such it’s mainly down to the fact that it’s a little too clever for its own good and any battery would struggle after running 3G, WiFi, surfing the net, texting and watching full HD videos.

So, there are two accessories that you can get to upgrade and enhance the battery power and life of your handset. There’s nothing worse than trying to show off your new stunning handset for it to power down straight away. So you can add the Power Bank accessory to your case and it boosts the battery life while you’re on the move. It’s essentially another battery that lets the main phone battery feed off the power supply. This can give you vital hours when you need your phone the most.

The next gadget that is a must-have for any Samsung Galaxy S3 owner is the Samsung Extra Battery Kit. It’s exactly what it sounds like except it comes with a docking station so you can have your sparkly new white Samsung Galaxy SIII on show while you’re at work. It comes with a spare battery and it charges your existing battery while it’s sitting there looking at you with its lovely Super AMOLED screen. Smart, it certainly is.

Making the most of having two spare batteries will save you the hassle of ever having a dead phone ever again. Simply charge the spares up and carry one around with you. That means you might not need to ever see another power source for 3-5 days, however, if you really want to drop your battery expenditure then turn off 3G and WiFi while it’s not in use. Shortening the screen brightness and shut down times will also help here too, so scroll through your settings and make the most of any power saving opportunities.

With so many Samsung Galaxy SIII deals out there right now it’s too irresistible to buy one and that’s why if you want to make the most of it, you should buy extra batteries and charging gizmos so you can have full control over the life of your phone. Just imagine if you were stranded with no battery and it was an emergency, but you’re left with a fancy looking paperweight?
