Same here. I'm ready to pull the trigger on the s5 if I can find this in the US.

Will try to take some photos. I already have it, bought it from our local shop . Phone is heavier and a bit thicker. I could take some separately photos of back cover and battery. Don't have any camera to take photos then battery is in the phone.

I believe as is genuine product, it will remain same way as standard cover, handtec.co.uk have them in due: http://www.handtec.co.uk/samsung-gal...900bbegww.html, looks very promising as 3500 mAh was my ideal size battery for good 2 days use.

I actually feel very suspicious about it because I can't seem to find Samsung making an announcement about this accessory either.
They made announcements about previous new battery packs.

Just find this seller on ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2011328875...84.m1423.l2649
and it saying: Waterproof feature retained, and is genuine Samsung product: EB-EG900BBEGWW, looks very promising.

Its genuine battery kit. Yes back cover still gives water and dust resistance + its harder than the original cover that comes with phone.

P.S. today charged battery for the first time. Will see how long i could use it till next charge . Sorry didn't have time to take some pictures. Will try to do it today in the evening.
