Seidio Samsung Galaxy S III 3,500 mAh Innocell Battery and Desktop Cradle hands-on

Seidio Samsung Galaxy S III 3,500 mAh Innocell Battery and Desktop Cradle hands-on
As we near the true start of the busy fall season, the smartphones of summer are doing whatever they can to still remain relevant. Throughout it all, we’re absolutely certain that the Samsung Galaxy S III will continue to remain as a force to be reckoned with – so that’s why we’re constantly seeing a steady stream of accessories for the beloved smartphone. Already, we’ve checked out the Seidio Active Case and Holster for the handset, but this time around, we’re getting a look at something that specifically targets power consumption.

Specifically, it’s the Seidio 3,500 mAh Innocell Extended battery and Desktop Cradle that we’re getting our hands on this time around. On one side, power users will appreciate the extra juice they’ll get out of the beefy sized battery, which happens to retail for $69.95 for the non-NFC one and $74.95 for the NFC equipped version. Conversely, the Seidio Desktop Cradle for the Samsung Galaxy S III would make a nice addition to any bedroom nightstand – as it perfectly allows you to charge your smartphone nearby while sleeping. Sporting a price point of $29.95, it’s also compatible with a wide-range of other Samsung smartphones – like the Samsung Skyrocket, Epic 4G Touch, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note, Google Nexus S, and Google Nexus S 4G. Without further wait, let’s take a quick peek at how these two accessories stack up.

Because I'm on at&t :/ otherwise I would have went with Razr Maxx when I had the chance to upgrade. big battery = my love. I'm not a power user, so spec comes after the battery life.

Ugly looking battery and no nfc support

I love my pebble blue baby my Galaxy S3 on Tmobile. I get 18hrs heavy use and 33hrs battery life light use. I am very happy with the stock battery I may just buy another 2100mAh battery. Other wise I will purchase the upcoming Galaxy Note 2 on day one when it lands on Tmobile and will have the best of both worlds. Samsung rules in this space especially on Tmobile...

I prefer to go the spare battery route as I like to have a case on my device. The extended batteries are great, just precludes one from using a case. :\
