[Deal] Galaxy Nexus Extended Battery is Half Off at VerizonWireless.com, Just $25

It is tough to tell, but the extended battery for the Galaxy Nexus is on the left in that picture. It adds just a slight amount of thickness to the device that is hardly noticeable and will definitely be my daily battery going forward. At 2100mAh, it may not add 4-5 hours of extra battery life or anything wild, but knowing that this is an LTE device, won’t you take any extra juice that you can get?

And what if you could snag it for $25 rather than the full $50? Verizon’s online shop is offering it up for just that. When you click on the link below, you will see it appear as $49.99, but once you add it to your cart and checkout, it should show up as just $24.99. Yeah, you will want to get on this one right away.  

Buy.

Cheers Jul and KLY412!

    i have the new battery and it doesn’t work well with the kickstand case. hoping for an updated kickstand case offered by someone, sometime soon, that works with the extended battery & cover.  when i tried the case with the extended battery setup it felt like the phone would come flying off, so not going to risk using an accessory outside of its intended use.

    Question…

    So I just got the extended battery and its not that much bigger (physically) than the 1850mAh battery. The only bad thing is If I wanted to carry both batteries with me I’d have to carry both covers. 
    So my question is, would wedging (or taping) a piece of paper behind the 1850mAh battery in order to fill the gap and fit in tightly with the extended cover on would be a bad idea?

      I just got my extended battery from the FedEx guy about half an hour ago, and it looks like there wouldn’t be a problem using the extended cover with the standard battery.  The standard battery might pop out if you drop the phone, but for normal use it should be fine.

    I just got mine today and it fits into my Incipio 2 piece case with no problems. There is a slight bulge  in the case but nothing that I am worried about.

  • thefullritz

    Anybody find a case or skin for the extended battery?

        Where have I read this before, oh yea 2 posts above…. :/

  • Longduckdong

    I just ordered, everything went smoothly and when I check the order status, I’m not getting any kind of error, also there really isn’t any info on the page, but that is to be expected since I just ordered.

    • Crazydog

      I’ve been getting that for a few days as well. Ordered the day this deal showed up.

  • John

    i think they are out of stock. i’m getting an error when checking order status via order#.

    had to wait until today for internet sales dept to open back up, since they were closed this weekend. will double check & update again – reply to this if you’re also encountering the same issue

    • http://boardsandbrews.wordpress.com Enzy

      I’m getting the same error when I check. I wonder if it was a glitch in the system that they are trying to fix. Oh well, too late now, we got them for this price

      • John

        yep. i’ve taken screen shots n all. they better not try to pull a fast one on me & say they didn’t get my order & didn’t know it was listed half off.

        i’m going to call internet sales dept in a bit to raise hell & find out what’s going on.

        • http://boardsandbrews.wordpress.com Enzy

          I’ll be doing the same – hopefully their server just isnt working or something simple.

          • John

            I have a feeling the order didn’t go through properly or something. Either way, update back here if you remember (once you talk to them)

            thx

        • http://boardsandbrews.wordpress.com Enzy

          Just had a great chat with a CSR online – they’re a lot friendlier now that the phone is out. He told me that yes my $24.99 price will be honored and it will be getting out. Nothing on a delay or reason for the error page, but the price will be the same.

          Also, as an FYI to everyone, I asked if a car dock that used the 3 pins would be coming out – he said yes, so that’s a positive development.

          • John

            So, wait…did they tell you to re-order? What about the e-mail that says “charged to XXX card. Conf#: ” etc.. ?

          • John

            My quick update…

             i contacted @VZWsupport on twitter & talked with them via DM. They had to contact “internet orders”, who looked up my order#, and they informed that it had been shipped & gave me my shipping #. It’ll be here tomorrow :D

          • http://boardsandbrews.wordpress.com Enzy

            Great! Hopefully mine will be too.

    I missed this deal but i could get it cheaper using my corporate discount which isn’t bad. Though I would need to buy the battery charger with the Y cable too. WIll it fit the extended battery on there also?

    • http://twitter.com/Section179 Section179

      The deal is still active

  • JoJoOnTheRadio

    Was able to go to the corporate store and the rep confirmed it was 24.99, went ahead and got one. It does fit the car dock as well.

  • BertaJam77

    I just ordered mines. Worked flawlessly. Still kinda crazy to me that they have it for $49.99, then it changes when you add it to your cart to $24.99. And have to love the free shipping.

  • Sanchezl99

    Awesome tip. Droid-Life does it again. Thanks!

  • Jeremy Morrison

    $25 bucks for a bigger, better, and extra battery you just can’t go wrong. I will definitely be taking advantage of this bad boy. Sign me up. Although I feel bad for the people who bought it on launch day. Now all I need is a good anti-fingerprint screen protector with my incipio double cover case and I should be good to go.

  • Ray

    Just bought 2 for 27.18 each after tax. Thanks!

    Thanks for your interest in our products!!  The case will not fit with the extended battery, unfortunately.This is for the Ottobox Defender. Make it a great day! Thomas BeverCustomer Service RepresentativeP: 855-688-7269thomas.bever@otterbox.com

  • Sb_me

    I was able to get it at $24.99. No local store would honor that price…

  • Robb Matherly

    i cant find it on their website, it is only showing me the standard battery, i wondered if they removed it

    • Roxanne Byerly

      I couldn’t find any of the accessories on the night of launch. I’m kinda glad I didn’t now! :) Just in case you are having the same problem:  Go to Shop/View all accessories -> Browse accessories by device -> Type Galaxy (not samsung)

      • Dave

        Still not working for me. I’m not logged in. Tried the link above as well as Roxanne’s instructions, and it doesn’t show up.

        It looks like the extended battery is not listed on their site anymore.  I’ve been searching for 15 minutes trying anyway possible to find it with no luck.  Trying the live chat deal now, hopefully they have it and the deal is still going.  Man I wish I would have heard about this sale sooner!

        Also, all of the direct links people have posted lead right to the main accessories page. Leads me to believe they don’t have it on their website anymore…

    Just got off the phone with customer service. Bought the Extended Battery the day of launch but got charged full price. Cust Serv just gave me a $25 credit to make up the difference. Psyched I don’t to go to the store and haggle about it. Just wanted to let you know that it does work to call in if you already paid full price. Good luck 

  • Jamaicawind

    Does anyone know if they are offering the otterbox commuter case in stores yet?

  • http://www.chauzer.com chauzer

    will this battery work in the HSPA+ version of the nexus? and will the nfc chip work fine too (i assume its on this battery since its an official one)?

  • SB1

    Got mine today and it works with Otterbox Defender case

    • Gary Pasler

      With extended battery or standard one?

      • SB1

        I’m using the extended battery and cover.

    • Anonymous

        Yes I put the extended battery and the cover. It’s slightly tighter but it works.

    Thank you!…….Verified working I just placed two orders for $26.74 each total. 
    The key here is to click the link, then add to cart, then continue directly to checkout. 
    The discount purchase can only be made when NOT logged in to your account. I was only able to purchase them one at a time.

    • QtDL

      I was logged into my account and it worked for me just fine. :)
