Hi there, i know there are people saying that the extended battery pack will not fit into vehicle dock and power pack.

so, my question is, if i place in the extended battery to my phone without the back case that comes along with the purchase, along with the vehicle dock or power pack, will it fit?

as for now, the power pack of mine doesn't give much juice =(

I would recomend you use Anker's 1900mAh battery instead, you can find it in Amazon and it's not very expensive.

The good thing about this battery is that having more capacity than the stock one, fits perfectly and you don't need to change the back case with another one more bulkier, so the phone will fit in all the docks.

Thanks for your reply! but i'm afraid the anker battery will explode as one of the forumers had experienced it before =D

how is your experience with the battery? can last additional few hours compared to stock's 1650 battery?

LOL! Does this battery realy explode?

In my experience the battery is performing great. With stock I got around one day of charge, carefully managing the phone to not waste any battery (perhaps not so exagerated, but more or less). With Anker I get around 1 day and a half with the same use or even 2 if I don't play a lot with the phone...

hi
i have the 2000mh batterie with new backcover.this makes the phone 1 millimeter thicker.
i have the original samsung car dock.
this dock has a square peace of plastic in the middle,which( funny isnt it?) is exactly one millimeter thicker then the rest of the dock.
you can easily pull out this square plastic thing with a small screw driver.
after this,the phone fits perfectly into the dock,just as if it was designed for this.
i guess the bigger batterie was planed from the beginning on from samsung.and so is the dock to fit the bigger batterie.
cheers

wow, thanks for your reply, but if i buy the extended battery pack, my current power pack would be left idle, so i'm thinking 'the best of both world' solution, guess i have to put my power pack away and give this extended battery a try =D how was the extended battery life performance?
