Default Why no Extended battery yet?

Hi Everyone

I am looking for an extended battery for the samsung nexus S. I am a power user, and would need at least 2800 mah's. I noticed that seidio and others have some for the nexus one, and usually by now, they will have released documentation indicating that they have an extended pack being developed for the nexus s. This leads me to believe that perhaps they feel that the market is not large enough to substantiate an extended battery for the nexus s. Does anyone know of any other battery manufacturers that have or are coming out with an extended battery? This is the only thing that is preventing me from purchasing the phone

Thanks so much
Andy

Andy,

We are actually in the process of developing a super extended battery for the Nexus S! I will post more information close to the release date. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I wondered if you would release one which does not require an extended battery cover?

If so, what capacity?

Thanks,

Martin.

Default Brilliant!

Seidio,

Thanks great news! Thanks again for catering to us power users. You guys are really the only extended batteries I would trust for long term reliability. Looking forward to a really big extended battery with a separate back cover

Best,
Andy

Yes, we have released a slim battery that doesn't require a battery door and it is already shipping! It is 1600mAh.

Hi, have you any estimation what extra time (e.g. in %) does it add to standard 1500mAh battery? Is it those mathematical 6,7% or even more?

That battery is about $50 which is double the price of the original battery. You get about 6-7% more for double the price. Not really worth it. Better to just buy another original as a spare battery. If Seido drops the price by a huge amount it may be worth considering.

This is an interesting answer however on the wrong place. My question was about capacity, not about value for money, which I can calculate myself.

I cannot give you an estimation on the number of hours extra you will get because it does depend on your phone settings and how you're using your phone.

The NFC antenna in the battery cover probably poses a bit of a problem.
