    Just wondering if anyone has been able to pull off adding the Seidio 3800 battery while snapping on a thin case (with no battery door)?

    I did this for my old Droid 2, had the extended battery in there and left the battery door off and was able to get the standard Seidio Surface case on.

    Just wondering if anyone has found a combo that works which keeps the GNEX appearing slim yet still having the big battery under the hood?

    Also it would be nice if the 3800 had NFC supported, any alternative super batteries out there w/ NFC?

    I do not think you can get the Seidio extended battery to fit. The Samsung extended (2100mAh) will not, and from what I understand the Seidio is larger.

    As for super batteries with NFC, I have not seen any. The largets I have seen w/NFC is the Samsung official one.

    I put the 3800 batt in my Nexus and then put the Diztronic case on. It fit top and bottom but the area around the middle was distorted and did not quite fit.

    I got the 2100 to fit, but no way the 3800 will.

    I haven't seen any cases that work, but Seidio just released a revised battery that includes NFC.

    Fit my 3800mAh non-Seidio brand battery. Just had to peel the felt out.

    Thanks for this, but I was looking for a thinner case which would fit with the Seidio 3800 battery and maybe no battery door? I dont expect there to be a case that would fit really, but perhaps someone bought a thin case, didnt use the battery door and somehow modded the case and it fits.

    Thus keeping the sleek form factor but the 3800 battery is under the hood.

    I own the extended surface case in your link, it's nice, but it does add some bulk. With some thought and craftsmanship I bet someone could figure out a way to make the back of the phone have no hump, yet have the super battery back there.

    That seems impossible since the 3800mAh battery is almost as thick as the phone is by itself but good luck in ur search.
