    Like many of you, I got an extended battery on day 1. I'm having a hard time finding a battery charger, however. Do I need to just wait a few months for the cheap 3rd party options to be available, or am I just that bad at finding things on the internet?

    Thanks.

    Not just you . I found one on ebay one day and went back to buy it and it was gone. I bought the Extended battery and the Battery Charging kit but I hate the external charger it came with . My original plan was to buy the Charging kit cost me $22 then sell the battery for $20 but I just really dislike it . Once there is a cheap battery charger I'll be all over that and as soon as there is a good desktop dock like the one for the GSM version on Ebay I'll be all over that too

    Are you talking about a dock, or just a charger? Any micro-usb charger will work, but I'd like a good dock just for charging. Even Samsung doesn't make one yet, there's will be expensive though.

    I did find a universal one with a movable back for about $25. I'm thinking about getting someone to machine one up for me out of delrin. I made a rough design at work the other day.

    I'm talking about a battery charger that charges a spare battery outside of the phone. I'd be fine if it's also a stand, like this:
    Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus Battery Charging Stand (Battery Not Included) #EBH-1F2SBEC - Expansys USA

    The problem with this one is that it's not yet available, and only borderline cheap.

    I'm looking for a wall charger to charge my extra batteries when they are not in the phone. I really don't care much about price OEM or 3rd party is fine. I would be happy with a Samsung, Verizon, or other 3rd party product but I haven't found one. Any information or links would be appreciated.

    Thanks
