Extended Battery Kit for the Samsung Galaxy S III to launch in Germany on January 5th
Samsung Galaxy S III extended battery, which will be available from a third party starting January 5th. The Samsung Extended Battery Kit weighs in at €39.90 ($52.76 USD) through Amazon Germany, which is cheaper than the price of the kit from Mobile Fun. The Extended Battery Kit includes the 3000mAh cell and a slightly larger back cover that accommodates the larger dimensions of the replacement cell. The kit is available in blue or white to match the colors that the phone was originally launched in.
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.
