This news should make power users and heavy gamers happy: Samsung has officially released an extended battery for your Galaxy S III. The extended battery boosts your phone’s battery to a capacious 3000 mAh, nearly a third more than the 2100 mAh battery that ships with the device. That should easily be enough to get heavy users through a full day, and average users through at least two full days of normal usage before your S III gives up the ghost. Besides the added battery life you get a built in NFC chip, an enlarged back casing and the peace of mind knowing that your battery was made specifically for your phone. Samsung is asking for $64.99 to make this battery yours. That may seem a little pricey, but if you’re one who is always worried and wondering if your phone will make it through the day, it may be worth your bucks. Any of our readers planning on picking one up?

Listen up if you’re a Galaxy Nexus owner folks because we’ve got a doozy for you. We all know the standard 1800 mAh battery is average by most standards and the 2100mAh extended battery is only slightly better, so many of you may have been longing for something you can feel confident in when it comes to battery life. Sure we’ve highlighted some hefty alternatives, but they may come at a premium price. Well friends I come bearing great news: CellularFactory is listing a sweet 3,800mAh extended battery for wait for it… wait for it— a whopping $13.99. That’s right folks, a 3,800mAh extended battery is available for under $14. There’s more too: if you use code GOFF5SW during your purchase, you get an extra 5% off. There were earlier reports indicating the extended battery was available for $7.99, but we wanted to double-check and confirm this for you all, but found the battery is in fact available for $13.99 only.
Keep in mind this extended battery does not feature NFC capabilities, so you’re out of luck if you’re looking for some Beam action. It might be a negative for some, but I think the vast majority of those interested in this battery will gladly give that up for an improved battery life at that steal of a price.

Verizon G-Nex owners feeling the brunt of the LTE battery drain wars fret not, your savior is here. Seidio has finally made available their 3800 mAh “Super Extended Battery” for the Galaxy Nexus.

The battery will run you about $75 bucks but offers you more than what the Razr Maxx is giving you. Here’s what Seidio has to say:

Our Extended Life Batteries utilize premium Japanese cells to ensure the highest levels of safety and performance.

If you can meet just two simple conditions you can land yourself a free special edition Google battery cover along with a pocket charger for your Galaxy Nexus. The offer stands for the first 20,000 applicants and the conditions are you have to be a resident in Japan and you have to own one of the Japanese Docomo SC-04D models of the Galaxy Nexus. Based on the pics in the flier, it looks like a “miharu takizakura” tree is etched or printed on the battery cover, but it still looks pretty cool. This seems to be an effort on Docomo’s part to generate more Galaxy Nexus sales, so be sure to ask for the free accessories if you’re in the market for a G-Nex. Hit the source link for information on the offer.
All that being said, if you’re a US resident and want to get in on some battery door etching, check out our post where we mentioned the IndieGoGo start up project and scored our logo on the battery cover. Show your support by ordering one today.

For those of you Galaxy Nexus owners who missed out on the first round of Verizon’s discounted extended battery sale, well they’re at it again. Now that they have replenished stock, you can still purchase the larger extended battery for 50% off and it will only run you 25 bucks. Head to the source link below to get your extend on (didn’t sound right), and some readers are even claiming to have gotten the deal honored at their local Big Red store. Do it.
Many of you already have, or are considering picking up the new Verizon Galaxy Nexus. With all of the 4G battery life woes that are accustom to any 4G device, an extended battery may be a necessity for some of you. Right now, Verizon is offering the extended battery at a 50% discount that makes it only $24.99.
The extended battery comes with a new battery door that is hardly any different than the original. I was able to use the Incopio hard case that I purchased with the phone even with the new battery and battery door with no issues at all. You may also find that the original battery door fits surprisingly well even with the extended battery installed. I have yet to do any testing to see how much more battery life can be gained with the extended battery, I assume 2-3 hours, maybe.
If you happened to pick up the extended battery yesterday and had to pay full price like I did, you can call *611 and they will credit your account with the difference in price. If you want to have that cold hard cash in your hand you will have to take your receipt in to the store for the refund. Either way it should’t be any problem at all.
If you’re ready to take advantage of this deal, hit up the source link below these photos.

WirelessGround recently released some extended batteries for some of the newer phones, and they were kind enough to send us over a couple to check out. I got to spend some time with their battery for the Epic 4G. This 3500mAh battery definitely extends the life of your device, but is it everything they advertise it to be? Read on…
Although the HTC Droid Incredible from Verizon Wireless is a powerful Android device, the 1GHz Snapdragon processor among other features definitely drains the 1300 mAh stock battery down quite a bit. Some users have even reported battery loss up to around 30% per hour with normal use!
So, the obvious solution would be to get an extended battery right?
Well, one of the main marketed features of the HTC Droid Incredible was its sleek and stylish look, mainly attributed to the the ‘race-car’ inspired battery door. So if you don’t want to lose this look to your Droid Incredible, Seidio has got you covered.
The Seidio Innocell Slim Extended Life Battery gives Droid Incredible users more power without losing pocketability. A new battery door is not needed. Just pick up one of these batteries, pop it in, and enjoy the increased power and functionality of your HTC Droid Incredible!
