    This might be old news, but you can pick up the extended Samsung battery from Verizon right now for 50% off ($25). The battery is hard to find on the website, but here is the link:

    http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/...ryDetails&archetypeId=12917&accessoryId=49870

    Also the discount doesn't always show up correctly at checkout, so you might have to chat with a sales rep to get the right price, but I just ordered it for $25 about 15 minutes ago w/ free 2 day shipping.

    I got one in the store for $25 yesterday too. They only had 3 and after I asked about it the next two people in line promptly sold them out :)

    They didn't keep it up long or it was a mistake to start with. Shows $49.99 for me, chatted with a person on their site, they said they're $49.99... so....

    Keep trying. Like I said for some reason it doesn't always put the right price in the cart at checkout, but this is a screenshot from about 2 minutes ago. Maybe try another sales rep as we all know how informed some of them are. They one I talked to at first tole me an extended battery wasn't available for the Gnex.

    Yup, just got it to work... thanks for the heads up on this one. Glad I didn't drop the $49 for it at the store now.

    $27.24 total with tax and all, 2 day shipping....

    SWEET!

    Thanks again!

    Does the math work differently, because 2100 is only about 14% more battery capacity vs. stock 1850?

    Extra 14% and hardly any thickness added to the device = worth $27 to me

    I may have to stop at the store. I put it in the cart and it showed $37.50 because my wife's discount is 25% off as a teacher.:frown:

    Keep trying. I also get 25% off accessories and it was doing the same $37.50 for me until one time it magically worked. I have no idea why it doesn't work every time.

    I just logged out of my vzw account and tried again to get the cheaper option. They tried doing the same thing with my nexus giving me $50 off when I still had my option to get $100 off from upgrading from my OG.

    I hope this is compatible with the dual charging station (that also comes with a battery). While I don't think the battery life is that bad, I'm not opposed to have three batteries sitting around thanks to the extremely fast boot times.

    Battery number 3 for me too.... maybe a little overkill but makes me happy. I also hope that it fits in the little battery charger thing... i don't see why not probably just leave the lid flipped up...

    TOTALS


    Due Today**




    $27.36

    Dec. 17, 2011 - Still working

    I followed the link on the first page and got taken straight to the item. I added it to my shopping cart and the price showed as $24.99. I just checked out for a grand total of $26.03! Thank you for posting the direct link, guys. I've been trying to find the item since last night.

    They'll honor it in store too if they have it. Just mention that its on their website. Got mine so I'll be cancelling the online order.

    Just put one today and it seems to be just about the same size with the cover one, just a little bit bigger. It was pointed out by the sales guy that not all cases will fit with the bigger battery, so make sure you look at what you get for a case.
