    Default Extended Battery and Otterbox?

    Anyone know if any extended batteries fit the GS3 inside an Otterbox Defender? I just switched from a Droid X.. in which I had an extended battery and the otterbox... and it fit just fine. Curious if anyone here has done this and what size battery?

    I don't really think it's possible because the case that goes inside the silicone is very tight and can only fit the phone itself with, normal battery

    There is a small square like box inside the case, it's probably no thicker than a 1/3 of an inch long so maybe if you can cut that out, then maybe you could get the case to close with the extended battery in it, but idk

    I used to use physical buttons, and then I found button savior

    I have the same issue. I wish I would have held off on the OB. Seidio has an extended battery case / holster combo for their extended battery. I have read, but not tried, that you can call them and order an extended battery door that will work with other batteries, then use the Active case / holster.

    I am considering trying this, then selling my OB. I am also considering a switch to the Razr Maxx HD for the better battery with a thin design. I have held the Maxx HD and its thin size is impressive. This is the main reason I haven't called Seidio and gone that route, yet!

    I just purchased the Hyperion extended battery and case combo on Amazon for $35 together and I couldn't be happier. The extended battery does make the phone much bigger and heavier, but I don't mind the added bulk considering the insane battery life im getting.

    How is the case working out for you. I'm so tempted to buy one but I'm thinking of nodding a extra otterbox I have

    Yeah same here, I have my Hyperion extended battery and using this case which is cheap but is also pretty good! Looks pretty sleek with the black as well. It fits well and all holes are accessible. It covers the mic a lil bit but it doesn't affect the calls

    I had the same question about the extended battery and the OtterBox case. I ended up modding the case and getting it to work fairly well. Just uploaded a video of the finalized case.

    That's a great mod but I'm hesitant about leaving my back exposed.

    Can't that damage the battery if dropped on its back?

    True. The biggest thing that would be a problem would probably be the weather. Dust isn't really an issue. At least it hasn't been yet.

    It's possible. I've dropped mine since I've modded it, while not directly on its back, but still haven't had a problem. The SIM and all the other components are still hidden behind the plastic case.

    I've had very good results with all the accessories I've bought from Seidio over the years, for many different phones. High quality and great support. Just ordered the extended battery (with NFC) and the extended case/holster, should have it all by the end of the week. As light and thin as the S3 is, I'm thinking the extra weight & thickness (along with the Seidio "soft touch" slightly rubberized finish on the door) may actually feel better in the hand. Will report here after I get it all and use it for a bit.
