    Official Galaxy S3 Extended Battery Almost Here, Stays Thin

    I can surely use a few extra hours my SIII, but I would never by the typical extended battery. They take your beautifully svelte smartphone and turn it into a brick. Well according to this, Samsung will start offering a 3000 mah extended battery kit that still manages to keep the phone thin. If this is true, I am first in line. Though I am skeptical - Why no word of this on the Samsung site? Why Amazon Germany? Will this work on US version of S3?

    I know I will buy one if it will fit with the stock cover and work with my Otter Box Defender.

    Yeah I bought the 3800 Mah and it makes my phone a brick and feels akward in the hand. I will def buy one if it is slim! For sure.

    Obviously the stock battery cover won't fit an extended battery- it comes with a slightly"thicker"one. Does anyone have any idea when this will be available at Verizon?I called n they had no idea it even existed. Tried to tell me you can't have one for the s3

    Probably some Noname company decided to earn money on S3 popularity by producing this battery kit. Doubt this is official, so try it on your oun risk.

    It is official by Samsung. It is coming this month but only over in the UK can you order it. I read somewhere on the xda forums that a couple of people from the USA ordered it and the site won't ship it to them for another 2 month. But yah, it's official. I can't wait to get this battery.

    Enticing but undecided. If you watch the video you can see how bulky it is. Not too bad, but it doesn't look like it'll work with all cases. Maybe some, but I wouldn't count on Otterbox being one of them since they're so tight fitted.

    Anyone know why Samsung would not release a battery to all regions? It's not a phone, its a battery. This is what makes me skeptical.

    Pretty much the same reasons as with phones. For one it's different technology so I don't think those batteries would even work in ours. It's also a marketing tool to build excitement through jealousy. It'll also make it easier on the company to deal with returns, technical issues, customer support etc.

    Yes it will work with our phones. The difference between the International s3 and USA is ours has a dual core processor and the International has a quad core and of course ours (verizon) doesn't have gsm. The battery will work. It's just technology over in the UK is always first to receive it. :-(

    Just wanted to wake up this old thread because the Slim S3 extended battery is now available in U.S. I picked it up last month and haven't looked back. It really makes a huge difference particularly for those of us that use to get through the day, but with our fingers crossed. This is the way to go for anyone wanting extra Juice without turning their phone into a brick. Amazon.com: Genuine Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 Extended Battery Kit 3000mAh + Blue Cover: Electronics. There is also a TPU case by Diztronic that comes in a variety of colors Amazon.com: Diztronic Pink GlitterFlex Extended Battery Flexible TPU Case for Samsung Galaxy S III (Works with Genuine Samsung 3000 mAh Extended Battery Kit Only) - Retail Packaging: Cell Phones & Accessories . I personally go naked. Extended battery cover and weight actually improves the grip of the S3.

    I just wish Otterbox would make a Defender case to fit this battery and then I would be all over it. I asked them and they told me that they had no plans to do so.

    34% left, but this should give you an idea of the run I am getting on this battery. This was a day that I was really using it see the on screen time

    Anyone by chance use this extended battery with the Superleggera Pro case for S3? I've got the case new, but don't want to open package unless it'll fit this extended battery. Thanks!

    The 4200 battery is HUGE though. I keep too much in my pockets to justify that.

    Anyone have any thoughts on the size of the 3000? Maybe a comparison of about how thick it is? For instance the Bionic slim extended literally only added about a credit cards worth of width. It was amazing.

    Considering we have the same on screen time and I have 34% left versus your 25%, I would say the Samsung official 3000mah is much better and a lot slimmer.
