    Thanks for the recommendation. It looks like that would work, but I wonder if something smaller is available?
    You can see that there is not a lot of extra room in this case.

    It looks like Seidio just put up a "coming soon" placeholder on its website for a 3100 mah battery. I'm ok with the performance of the stock and 2150 mah batteries, and the slim extended batteries I got from Seidio for my Thunderbolt were garbage, but a 3100 battery could power this thing for days. So long as the NFC capabilities aren't compromised, it may work for some people.

    Sorry for the confusion, but I am wondering about a case that is just for a spare battery, not the whole phone. If I'm carrying a spare battery in my pocket, I would feel better if I had some kind of case that isn't too bulky to put it in, so I don't have to worry about shorting out the terminals.
    Whoops I probably should have read it clearer. I know what you mean though. I'm ghetto and just pit the batteries on a ziplock bag in my oat pocket at work lol.

    Ah, I see. It's not as large as I thought. That ought to work just fine for me.

    Thanks, Buddy!

    Well, the ziplock bag would work just fine, too! But I think I'm going to give the Case Logic idea a try first.

    For $50? No. For $25? Yes.

    Whatever works for you

    For $50? No. For $25? Yes.
    Agreed... if you can get it for the 50% off deal it is a no brainier, if you have to pay full price then it is really a toss up, but I believe the stores are still selling them for that.

    Got extended battery for 25, ordered from local Verizon store, they billed my account and 2 day Fedex'd it to me. The otter box commuter fits well with the new back. Difference is somewhat noticeable, for 25 it was worth it.

    Is the charger sold separately from the standard battery?
    Charger comes with standard battery but not the extended battery.

    Just came back from Verizon store with extended battery, it does make the Nexus feel better, a little more weight at bottom makes phone fit in palm of hand better , and if it adds thickness, it is a hair thicker, barely.

    Now I am looking for the thinnest case that fits extended battery ? I dont like tge two pc cases, too bulky, would love a barely there case if it fits ?

    you should try the diztronic case from amazon. i got mine today and it's just what i'm looking for. fits extended battery, light, thin, snug, phone won't slip off case, anti slip back, smooth lip (makes it easier to get in and out of pocket), comes with a screen protector if you want to use it.

    I came here to see what people thought of the battery, and had a different question answered. I liked my silicone case from my TB, and was looking for something like that for the Nexus. I'm not sure if I need the extended battery (I'm always around a charger anyways), but if this case fits it that gives me options later on down the road. I think I might order one of these. Thanks!

    Woah, that's huge! I'll keep my eye out for how that will look, I feel like it will make the phone enormous, but we'll see.

    I wonder if this new battery from SEIDO will have the NFC token in the battery like the Samsung ones. Least that is my understanding on how the NFC works in our phones. Used Google Wallet and got my free lunch from the $10 prepaid card. I can see myself using this feature more often.

    Yes the token is in the battery, but that does not mean that all replacement batteries will have them, and if they dont the phone works just fine but NFC does not work. Also the simple act of swapping batteries can have less than optimal (read: things may break) experience with NFC but Google and Samsung haven't released anything specific

    Seidio product description for their 3800mah extended battery says no NFC support.

    I can confirm that the NFC works with the Samsung extended battery. However, I got the battery when I bought the phone and used the extended battery from the start and never once used the standard battery.
