    Go to VZW website, but don't sign in. It lists for $50, but when you put the extended battery in your cart it goes down to $25. Hurry up before they fix it! Once you sign-in, it won't work. Happy Shopping!!!!

    I ordered it, but it's complete BS that this isn't the standard battery when you consider how small the "hump" is.

    I ordered it too! From the pics I've seen of the ext batter in the phone vs the std, there's not much diff so I believe it is the extended battery. Besides I dont' think Verizon could sell it as an extended battery if it wasn't!

    When I bought my nexus on Thursday the guy told me they had a deal for 50% off batteries for 4G phones. But it rung up for $50 so he had a manager over ride it and I got it for $25 in the store. So I doubt it is an error and you might even have luck in stores if you ask them about a 50% discount on 4G batteries.

    I hope it's significant, because I've never had battery life half as bad as this.

    46% to 18% in under an hour. Just looking at Twitter.

    Weird when I don't log in I can't add it to the cart but when logged in I can. Not logged in here and I have no add to cart button.

    Ugh. Forked over $50 in-store on launch day. I even specifically asked the rep about the 50% on 4G batteries, and he said that expired. Guess I need to either go back and complain, or call up CS. What a pain in the butt.

    Doesn't work for me. 50 dollars in cart and 50 dollars at confirmation page. I am signed out. o_O

    EDIT:

    Followed what hapbeeboy said, "Sign out, clear cache, put in different zip code then your account. Worked for me." And it works!!! Thanks for the tip.

    I signed in and it came up as $37 because of my employee discount

    Signed out ... came up as $25

    weird, I was hoping that it would be $25 and then they subtract the employee discount but w/e

    $25 is better than $37 and def. better than $50

    Mine showed up as 37 from the accessory page (with my work discount) but as soon as I added to the cart it went down to 25. Too bad I bought mine yesterday for 37 in store. Oh well...12 bucks I'll have to try to get back from CSR.

    Thanks for posting the deal. The standard battery is also 50% off and shows a price of $19.99 when you add it to your cart.

    It actually applies to batteries for a bunch of different phones. It's 50% off for Thunderbolt and Rezound batteries too. There are a couple of threads in the forums for those phones over the last couple of weeks about the 50% deal.

    I don't see them even listed, unless they are out of stock.

    Wow. I just chatted with a CSR who said the deal was not available. So I signed in to my account. The extended battery and cover was listed as $49.95. Then, just as you guys said, when I put it into my cart it went down to $24.95. So it's on the way with free 2 day shipping.

    Got mine as well. I did the same deal for the Bionic when I had that for work. Thankfully I found a good home for the Bionic battery already.I'm betting the battery gets to me before my phone does. :-)
