Question for those with a white 2000mah official extended battery

I received mine today from Amazon. and the top part of the new backing didn't clip into the phone. I've sent it back for a replacement. My question is, has anyone experienced this before or was I just unlucky and got a faulty cover? I have the I9100p (the NFC) model and was wondering if there is a compatibility issue?

Many thanks!

re: Question for those with a white 2000mah official extended battery
Hi,

Had exactly the same issue - I also have the 9100P and the back cover is slightly changed from the 9100 , the tabs on it are deeper and the extended back will not fit correctly.

I have yet to find an extended battery designed for the 9100P , ebay , amazon etc all sell the standard one. . .

I have also found that the phone does not fit well in all cases - again the back appears to be very slightly deeper??

Sorry cant be more helpful. .

All the best

Antony

I know there are a few people having problems with the fit of the new back cover for the extended battery but here's how i solved my problem.


I don't know about anyone else but my original battery cover actually fits although it is tight and there is a ridge in the back of the cover because of the thickness of the bigger battery. I got round this by using a nail file to file down the thicker plastic end caps at the top and bottom so they are flush with the thickness of the actual battery body i also rounded off the sharp edges. it doesn't give you much maybe just 1mm but it's enough to get a decent fit.

i hope i've explained that ok

Hold the battery side on you can see the top and the bottom plastic ends are just a little thicker than the battery body, they are the places to file but don't go mad. You'll only get about a millimeter but it's all you need. I've done it on my black i9100 and my daughters white one although the black battery cover is a little more flexible and easier to get on.

I have a similar problem with the black extended battery back cover I bought for my Orange I9100P. I got it from Amazon UK and I got a Korean NFC battery but the back cover from the UK battery just doesn’t snap in properly.

The bottom left just won’t snap in for some reason. The strange thing is that my mother has a SG2 from O2 the I9100 version and it fits perfectly into that phone. Is there a difference between the two models or is it a manufacturing fault with my phone? Should I send it back to Amazon for a replacement or should I be sending the phone back?

I have two pictures with the back cover on my phone, one with me pressing it down and the other with it loose but I'm not allowed to link to URLs yet. So if you want to see them go to imgur with this after the .com a/kaflG

I have i9100 and my girlfriend the i9100p.

I use the official extended battery and it stays on but not perfect. It does not fully snap on at the top.

It will not stay on at all on i9100p so I don't think there is a fault at all here it just seems that the p is slightly different for some reason and the back covers provided with the larger battery are just not that well made.
