Mophie Juice Pack for Samsung Galaxy S III is now available for $100
The Mophie Juice Pack for Samsung Galaxy S III holds a rechargeable cell that doubles the smartphone's battery life. When full, it provides 32 extra hours of audio, 8 extra hours of video playback, or 9 extra hours of web browsing, all the while protecting the device from accidental cracks and scratches. In addition, Mophie's battery case gets along well with NFC, so S Beam will still work even with the accessory in place.

Really nice, but one of the greatest features of the GSIII, its thinness, will be gone when using it.

A bit pricey, but glad that there is the option to expand the life time. Great for people that are always on the go and don't have a chance to sit down and charge it or charge it in the car.

Gonna for a 10 hr flight. But I prefer using my iPad for such flights because it has a lot of juice.

Broken record here - I continue to enjoy the thinness of my G3, along with the security of having another charged small light battery in my pocket or backpack. Boom, double the battery life.
Cost for two batteries and a wall charger? About $25

I'm one of the few people who don't care if my phone is thin. I always throw on a Otterbox case and they are usually massive, I find it easier for me to grab and hold onto then the thin phones.
But $100 for this POS is stupid high and I can't see them selling too much, if you are going to charge a premium price at least add some premium features such as inductive charging and/or a dock.

Soon, Android phones are going to need a separate bag to carry them...

I had one like that. It was garbage returned after one day.
It didn't fit right, it got so hot when turned on i couldn't hold the phone, and even though it was supposed to have a battery larger than the 2100mah in the phone, it only added about 1 hour 10 minutes of time.
I charged it to full, put it on the phone, and when the phone got down to about 5%, turned on the case battery. A little over an hour later, both were dead. Garbage.

Thanks for the heads up... I guess like everyones suggesting... Just get extra batteries and a charger....

Extra batteries with the external charger are usually like $40 and the only way to go.

If it was a little cheaper I would probably pick it up. Looks kinda neat.
