Very good article to know the saving of battery life in Android phone. But still most of the Android phones are draining maximum battery backup when there are multiple apps installed in the device. What is maximum capacity battery available in the market for Android Phones?

There isn't a thing like the maximum capacity battery for general purpose. Every smartphone comes with an optimum capacity battery that the hardware can handle. Using batteries that are not meant for your device may, in fact damage your phone.
By the way, I would choose to disagree with one of the points in the article. Using apps that clean RAM would drain your battery than saving it. Many mobile experts advice not to use them. That is because even if clean up RAM using these apps, the apps will start again thereby draining more battery.
