    Hi guys !
    Is there any dock that can charge the Gnex while also charging for extended battery?
    I know there's sammy extended battery charger but that was really expensive....40 bucks on the web.
    so is there any other recommendation?

    No, the Samsung battery charger he's showing there has a little lip in the front that the phone fits into. It also comes with a splitter- one end goes into the battery charger, one end goes into the phone. Not as good as a real dock, but IMO works well in the meantime.

    This!

    Is it ideal? No. It works fine though for what I use. The Y adapter works fine. :)

    Just the usb charging part, right? If you have info on how to create a microcontroller for the 3 side pins, or info on the specs to enable charging/headphones/and more please do share!

    Yeah with the size of the pins and flushness it would be difficult

    I see what you were talking about now :)
    I went to Verizon store and the guy I purchased my Gnex walked to me and told me there's this battery charger now :) And he told me it was 50% OFF for me !
    I was excited and grabbed 20 DOLLAR !
    I am overall happy with this !
