I bought a Lumia 520 for my brother yesterday and he is not happy with the battery performance. The 1430mah battery seems to be draining soon for him as he uses 3G and still the battery is not that good.Value for money though.Anyway , It uses a BL-5J battery and I am planning to buy a spare battery but I have seen the below given products. Please tell me your opinion whether I should go for this or not and what should I do.Thanks.

As much as possible, don't buy something that's not a first-party Nokia battery. You should go ahead, if you trust that source.
It's your risk, though, if you want to try it out. The largest official Nokia batteries ever were actually made during the WP era, and even they aren't that large.
Also, the Lumia 520 should last ~5 hours while browsing, according to GSM Arena.

If you must have a battery backup, I think its better to go for an external charger. Nokia has a charger called dc16, U can check it out at a Nokia store.

Most ebay china made "long lasting" batteries are a scam.
