The 2100mAh battery that comes with the Samsung Galaxy S III
might not provide enough battery life for many power users. Samsung is finally ready to ship out an extended 3000mAh cell
which can be pre-ordered in the U.K. from Mobile Fun. The battery is priced at 39 GBP ($65 USD) and the capacity on the cell compares to the 3100mAh cell on the Samsung GALAXY Note II
. The extra 900mAh should provide at least a couple of extra hours of use for the phone's user.
The extended battery kit includes the actual 3000mAh cell, and a special back cover designed to accommodate the larger battery. The back cover includes an embedded NFC chip
and is available in blue or white to match the color of the phone. The extended battery will make your phone heavier, although the Galaxy S III isn't a heavyweight to begin with.
While the extended battery kit isn't available yet in the U.S.,we feel comfortable predicting that it will eventually make the journey over the Atlantic. After all, there are power users in the U.S. who would give up almost any body part for additional battery life on their Samsung Galaxy S III.
