Guys and Gals,

I found two extended battery cases, currently sold only through Hong Kong distributors, which really tickled my pink ...

Here's the first: supplemental 3200mAh battery built-into an integrated back with front flap and metal kickstand.





Here's the second: supplemental 2600mAh battery built-into an integrated case with front flap and metal kickstand.







I ordered the second one and should have it by the middle of next week.

The primary difference between the two seems to be the connection between the phone and the battery (the first is constant, the second is on-demand) and the increased side/corner protection offered by the second case.

They are both available on eBay ... I'll let everyone know how my purchase experience goes.

p.s. This should probably be moved to the Accessories Subforum ...

I would be curious to know if it replaces the back and if that little silver button in the lower right is a power switch. I might end up getting one of these, too ...

To you first question:

No, because it looks like both battery cases have a discrete power button -- which means your primary battery only gets 'recharged' when you activate the secondary battery. I have heard that constant-on secondary batteries cause this problem, though ...

To you second question:

I'm not sure if the case enclosure or size would inhibit either of these. I can try when the case arrives and report back ...

I too am curious as to whether NFC still works with those cases since a battery with metal will be obstructing the NFC chip in the OEM battery

Hmm, it's an interesting alternative to something like this http://www.amazon.com/SlimTalk-Micro...dp/B0054U6CEE/

Might be something nice to use on a flight so you can game or watch a movie and still have battery left to call people when you land
