    Wonder if this works with NFC, considering it replaces the back cover and all.

    Edit: Looks like someone else asked this question on Amazon and they replied that it does not have NFC compatibility out the box (wonder if it is possible to mod it in).

    Way too much.

    Can you throw that thing through a windshield in the Chicago market? Might be a big seller there if so. (insert Sarcasm here)

    Yes, but the question is how good of a signal can you get on that brick and do the calls sound clear...

    looks like a great case and battery combination for a certain kind of road warrior/power user.

    I'm a big fan of overkill! But this is too much for me. But if I were on the road, traveled a lot without access to easy power, I would definitely consider this.

    You can get a good 13,000 mAh external battery for under $40. Hook up usb cord when you need a charge, and do it on the go. These chargers will charge a phone 3 or 4 times without being recharged themselves. Bout size of an iPhone. That's my solution for the occasional long day that I can't make it til the end of day. Works well.

    Really want to see a video review.

    I feel somewhat biased. I read people saying they were able to last two or three days. I just think to myself, well my droid maxx xt1080m in my drawer can do that so is it really worth the bulk?

    But it appears in addition to triple the stock battery you also succumb to an otterbox defender style case. If I was a frequent camper who required constant battery I would bring this.

    Since switching to the g3 I desperately miss the small form of my droid maxx. If I am going to stream a lot of videos I still have to pull out my Nexus 7 2013. Seems like a big hassle to me.

    What I want is this. A 6" phone with a motorola radio. A non removable 4000mah battery. 4gbs of ram. 64gbs memory with micro SD slot. I want a 10"+ tablet accessory akin to the padfone with another battery in that. I want a true keyboard case not like new padfone that has a rinky dink battery. That way my phone turns into an even bigger tablet that also functions as a laptop.

    Now I'm not asking it to dual boot Windows 10. But even some type of chrome os or just something completely different.

    We are the consumers. I'm not the only one who misses the days of a razr maxx and lapdock 500. This should be doable.

    This is a better response than the one where...what was his name got mad.
    I understand if some people don't like bulky cases, but the truth really is that it doesn't fit in their hands good.
    I'd say my hands are pretty average...I can palm a basketball with some effort so I wouldn't say my hands are small for sure, not huge either though. Either way, I simply don't really like the way bulky cases look. When I pick up a phone, of course the main draw is the operating system, specs and performance, but the aesthetics are still important to me. Add to that the fact I carry a phone in my front pocket almost all the time, and bulky cases make that uncomfortable, especially when you are sitting down.

    Unless you are tossing your phone around on purpose, or you are the clumsiest person on the planet, I don't understand the need for "extreme protection" when it comes to phones. I drop my phone occasionally, I've done so with most of my phones over the years, but I've never had more then a scratch on my screen. Most "slim" cases that preserve the phones appearance will provide more then enough protection, and that's definitely the way to go in my opinion. Anyways, kind of off topic...so back to the crazy huge batteries, lol.

    Very intriguing. I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures. Keep us updated on how the battery performs as you go!

    I'm interested in this, they don't allow external battery packs/chargers on Thai Air flights whether it's checked or carry on luggage anymore. Ya it's a bit of a brick, but it really doesn't look that much bigger than my S3 with a Defender Otterbox case on it.

    I have one and like it. Makes phone twice as thick but other dimensions are the same as any other case. I make it thru the day with heavy use, no problem now. Typically had to recharge at least once thru the day of not twice.

    I just ordered one of these this morning. I believe it takes twice as long to charge as the stock battery. I usually plug mine in overnight.

    Amazing, considering it's three-times the capacity.

    I just got mine in the mail today. It's a little heavier, a little bulkier, but as expected. It came with a screen protector, which I didn't put on. There is also an adapter (basically a piece of plastic with a piece of foam glued on it), so you can use the regular battery with the case. No hole for the speaker, but I did try a speakerphone phone call. I could hear the audio just fine through the holes at the bottom of the case. It said it had about a 62% charge when I first turned the phone on with the new battery. They recommend a 12 hour charge on the first charge, followed by 5 complete discharges/recharges. I thought I would try turning WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS/Sync and forcing my screen on at 100% brightness just to see how long the battery would last for the first few days/charge cycles. It comes with a similar belt holster which reminds me of the Otterbox style, which I rarely used with my SGS3. As far as fitting into a pocket, it probably fits just fine in my back pocket, or my inside jacket pocket, the typical pockets I would use.

    So what about normal side pockets?

    Putting it in the back pocket isn't an option....it will get sat on.

    I suppose you have to consider both the girth of the 9,000 mAh G3 and whether or not you wear loose fitting pants. If you are like me and wear regular fit pants, you'll probably get it in a side pocket.
