Seidio Releases 3800mAh Galaxy Nexus Battery, Your Tank Has Arrived Sans NFC Support

2100mAh at $25 not enough to get your Galaxy Nexus through a day? Seidio has you covered with their newly released 3800mAh behemoth that puts the DROID RAZR MAXX’s 3300 juicer to shame. OK that’s a lie, since Motorola actually maintained a sleek and minimal size with theirs. This Seidio extended battery will give your G-Nex a lovely lady hump. Again I lie, this thing is not lovely, but it will last a long time.

Oh, it also doesn’t support NFC.

Comparison shot of the thickness below.

Cheers MrPicolas!

    It looks like the side-view of a flat bottom fishing boat.  Oh wait, the boat is thinner!

    Holy fat ass batman..The Nexus put on a few LBs..

  • Dbarden31

    That thing is hideous!

  • appdaddy

    If anyone finds a battery NOT like this but has more juice than the 2100mAh AND nfc support, PLEASE put it.on DL so we can put this monstrosity behind us…. Although we may never fully recover….

    : Let’s do 3300 mAh and include NFC. That’s more negotiable Seidio. 🙂

  • Is that an extended battery in your phone or is it just happen to see me?

  • No thanks, this looks horribly ugly. I’ll just keep carrying a 2nd battery with me.

  • fartbubbler


  • Wow, thats huge! I think i would rather carry an extra battery than resort to this.

    I wonder if this is compatible with my case…..

    Why not just go get an iBrick if you’re going to do this to your super sexy Nexus?  No thanks. 🙂

  • I’ve always wanted a phone equipped with a Jetpack!

  • Baby got back….

  • I blame Samsung for the way the designed the battery cover.  I have a Droid Bionic, and I think the extended battery style Motorola has chosen was the right one.  

    • I went to the G-Nex from the Bionic with an extended battery.  The Bionic’s extended battery and cover is the best I’ve seen and used.

    looks ugly as sin, but If I had a G Nex I would buy one of these in a heart beat. I would rather have a phone that can go all day no matter how much I use it, then to have the thinnest, prettiest phone.

    uhhmm…why not just get two extended batteries for less money and less ugly?

  • Anonymous

    It almost looks like they were trying to make it look ugly. Pathetic.

  • rather just get a replacement battery and just alternate in between the one i have and the replacement, lot less money and i would never need that much power

  • ddevito

    No NFC = no,thanks.

    I use it almost once a day

  • bikerbill

    That is hidious hell HTC does better than that and no nfc .. I’ll root and get better battery with my 2300

  • PC_Tool

    Damn.  Ugly, but…3800mAh….

    If they had a decent looking case for it….(to hide the nastiness), I might consider it.  NFC isn’t a deal-breaker for me.

    This is the power pack for people that want extra power for the phone it is 5000 MAH. I have been using it for a year with my droid and sandisk mp3 player.  Highly recommend it.

      I kind of love you for that remark.

    I am going to order two of these when are they on sale and return them courtesy of return to sender. I get great battery life on Codename Android rom and recommend it to anyone along with Franco Kernel with hot plug enabled.

  • oh hey look, its my bionic

  • Ewww.  No thanks.  I’m never that far from a wall plug.

  • QtDL

    It looks like the GNex’s obese cousin. 🙁

  • Tim Swann

    no thank you

  • thefullritz

    Looks like a keel on the bottom of a boat.

  • Rickysiebold

    can we just get some 3 pin car and home docks please?   this is thunderbolt extended battery territory, except the nexus doesn’t need it. 

  • Korey Page

    It looks like a spaceship… 

  • I’ll have to wear suspenders and a belt to keep my pants on if I have this in my pant pocket

  • Baby got back

  • Superior1

    Damn!!!! That is so ugly. Why?????

    How does the camera focus from inside that deep cavern of a hole?

    I’m not wild about huge extended batteries. Tried one on my TBolt and never put it back on again after about a week.

  • Lizz.0

    Wow, that’s ugly…

  • I actually don’t have bad battery life on my phone with the standard battery. I know theoretically, it should be terrible, but mine last me all day, even though I stream music a lot, I tether (wirelessly) for at least a little while every day (because my cable company hates me), I text a lot, I catch up on news while on the bus, I have an occasional phone call, and I have sync turned on for almost everything. The standard battery still lasts me all day long though — I still haven’t taken my extended battery out of its packaging.

    • QtDL

      Same here. I actually returned my extended battery b/c I didn’t end up needing it. I can go most days w/o charging but have cables all over the place in case I need more juice. 🙂

    WOW!!! that looks U….GLY!!!!

  • Ambro

    WOW!!  That is ugly!!!!  Would much rather go with the RAZR MAXX with a 3300 battery.

  • What is the point of a battery soo large???  With a combination of the extended battery and any one of a number of ROM’s, one can easily expect a day+ of battery life.  No need for this, especially without NFC compatibility.

    Nfc hardware is in the phone, the antenna is in the battery pack.
