    Ok guys, so i have 2 issues, 1, the siedio battery 3800mah back cover, it is very hard to put on, any tips? all the things will not pop it, one will not no matter what, i put the bottom part of the back cover in first, then went to popping rest together.
    Second, the siedio extended case for the battery, the top part will not snap together, i thought these would be good products because of the price, but the case just wont stay together, any ideas?
    Thanks

    yea i can exchange or return both or either. The battery is nice, will keep that prolly, but idk what other type of case can fit the 3800mah battery? I kinda dont like TPU cases but if that is the only choice then sure. Any other nice cases? Id rather have hard case

    I have the 3800 battery and back cover as well and had the same problem initially. Keep playing with it and it will snap on. Does get frustrating I know

    I have the Seidio battery along with their CONVERT extended combo case. Makes the Nex a little thicker, but it's not a problem for me.
