[Deal] Seidio 3800mAh Extended Battery with NFC for Galaxy Nexus $57.95

Solid deal in our store today that we wanted to point out. The Seidio 3800mAh extended battery with NFC is available for $57.95. If you bought this from Seidio’s store, it would run you almost $75. It’s a tank of a battery, but if you need a phone that can last longer than a day, this would help get you there. We did a quick hands-on with the battery last week to give readers an idea of the thickness and weight it adds – you can view that here.

    Does this config fit in an Otterbox?

  • Tatsuo

    just picked one up… thanks DL!!  I’ve been on the fence and this little price drop was enough to get me off the fence.

  • Beau McCoy

    I’d rather get 2 of the 2100mAh batteries for the cost and keep the form factor. Price is too high. 

  • anyone borderline on buying this, dont hesitiate. i bought one a week ago after wrestling with the sammy 2100mah since day 1. best purchase i have made in a while. my 2100 was going dead around 11am most days(get up at 5am), and now i easily get until 8 or 9 pm before it dies

    Ok so bottom line, is it worth the coin to get one? I know it will make the phone a tank but in emergencies etc, I feel it would be worth having. Thanks guys.

    It’s still gonna drain regardless with extra weight added lol

  • alex57900

    I got one of these on Amazon for 60. I get really good battery life now.

  • looks like they are having a hard time gettin rid of them

  • T4rd

    I’d bet if you tested the battery, it would only rate around 2800 mAh or so.  Just basing that off of previous “extended battery” tests I’ve seen on Seido batteries.

      FWIF my brother got one and is getting almost double the life of the Samsung extended battery.

    • Athomson16

      I’d agree. I have one and it’s not that great

  • Mike

    i bought the $13 one, it obviously sucked and im a moron. To those who have this this one, is it any better?

    • droidrev71

      Not much. I have them both. Really can’t tell much of a difference. The $13 cover is easier to get on then the seidio. Even though it feels so cheap.. I recommend having two Samsung extended batteries. One in pocket one in phone.

    • daware

      I bought the $13 one too, and I’m on the fence about this one.  It doesn’t hurt that it’s on sale, but likes others have said, it’s not gonna be a true 3800 mah.

    I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. That thing is foul.

  • Joey Miranda

    how many hours does this battery add ?

  • Ceber

    anybody make a case that fits these gigantic batteries?

    • Droidrev71

      Seidio does. It’s a decent case. The phone feels nice with the case and weight of battery. Just don’t think it’s worth the money. I wish it was.

  • MarkyMark

    Maybe if Seidio’s batteries ever lived up to their advertised capacities…..

  • Michael_NM

    Pardon the dumb question, but doesn’t the Galaxy Nexus already have NFC?

    • Nexuss

      The Battery has the NFC

      • RadicalPie


    • MarkyMark

      Yes, but the battery holds the necessary antenna for the NFC hardware to communicate.

        Thank you.
