Extended Battery Kit for the Samsung Galaxy S III to launch in Germany on January 5th
Starting January 5th, the Samsung Galaxy S III Extended Battery Kit will be available through Amazon Germany
So how much thicker will your Samsung Galaxy S III be after you install the extended cell? Check out the video below. At around the 1:05 mark you will see the extended battery and the battery cover. The size difference is not that bad, as you can see. The video, which is in Slovak, also shows the size difference between a 4500mAh cell and the 3000mAh one that comes with the Extended Battery Kit.
With appearances in the U.K. and now in Germany, it looks like the extended battery for the Samsung Galaxy S III is slowly making its way around Europe before possibly ending up in the U.S.

Not going to save your S3 from dying.
140+ pages in XDA forums. Have fun with your low quality phone.

you guys are all undoubtedly stubborn and inflexible when it comes to your crapdroid blindness. Bunch of ignorant sheeps.

Try harder. Why do you care what phone we use? You are just some ignorant person. Apple fan or Android. Both will agree you are just a troll.

This could be the battery for the S4.
I'll probably buy the kit once the cases for it get available

Oh and PA, that video is Slovakian not Slovenian

Slovakia... the question is where are YOU from ?

Not sure if it's worth buying it for normal day to day use, but it looks likes a pretty useful for when going away for a few days and you're not sure if you'll get the chance to charge the phone.

The 3000mah looks perfect for my use. I don't like super thin phones anyway. Hurry and bring it to the states please.

Or Just get a Motorola Razr Max HD and you won't need this and will still have a great phone......better build than a Sammy too

and non removeable battery, leading to expensive repairs if your battery craps out for whatever reason after the warranty's up.

Surely that would make it heavier than the Lumia 920, which I find ironic considering reviewers criticized it for being too bulky.

This is not Slovenian... It's from Slovakia... so, it's Slovakian, or Czech.
