Never. That would require a new battery cover which is very accurately designed with it's o-ring to seal out water from Samsung. Do you want to trust a $600 device to a cheap 3rd party cover designed by some wanna-be engineer that it's going to hold 30 minutes at 1 meter?

Probably never. This isn't a dumb question like the guy above made it seem. They would just release a battery with a case that would devoid the protection that the device receives from the back cover. Which still wouldn't be too bad, considering you'd still have the shock proof, dust proof, and "water resistant" front (I say that, because now the back isn't). It also probably won't ever come out, because very seldom few people like you and I would like a huge battery for the Active, as the only way to do that would really be to lose water proof capabilities. Which is the main reason why people got the phone. So, it's just not a money maker if they did. They might sell ten or maybe even 100, but not enough to spend the money to develop it and produce it.

One of the other advantages of the S4Active is that it has a removable battery. What I do is, I have a second battery which I bought along with a charging pack that charges the battery independent of the phone. It was the best investment I've made in regards to phone accessories so far.

This way, I always have a second battery that I can carry around with me (in a secure little case) without sacrificing the size/aesthetic of the phone (since I can put that spare in another pocket, leave it in the car, etc) and I don't have to worry about the water proof seal. In addition to this, I'll use the MHL port a LOT less, which means I'm far less likely to damage it (or it's flimsy water-proof cover).

I think I'll follow the suggestion of having a separate battery charge and an extra battery pack.
