Extended batteries and Android go together like peanut butter and jelly. The phones are powerful and connected, and need the juice. The Seidio Innocell 3500mAh battery for the Nexus S takes the simple idea of a larger battery to the extreme. Checking in at more than double the standard 1440mAh battery for the Nexus S, it delivers when it comes to keeping you up and running longer. If you're one who still talks a lot on the phone (yes, they really are phones!) you'll love it.
Here at the homestead, we dropped the landline ages ago. My Nexus S is my phone, 24/7. Whether I'm doing important business with Pizza Hut, calling Mom and Dad to say hello, or talking to my kids, it's all done with my Nexus S. Phone calls can destroy the battery on an Android phone, but since I got the Seidio Innocell, I don't even worry about checking the battery status. I still charge my phone every night, but I'll bet I wouldn't have to.
Until battery technology catches up with everything else, that's how it's going to be. Android phones in particular, because they are so connected, tend to be hard on batteries, and we spend hours trying and discussing tricks to get more from their batteries. The best trick of them all? Get a big extended battery and stop worrying about it. The Seidio Innocell adds some girth to the profile (about 1 cm extra width), and comes with it's own battery cover -- one with Seidio's soft touch coated plastic. All the cut-outs for camera, speaker and USB ports are there, and it doesn't feel bad in your hand at all. The little bit of extra weight is no problem on a phone that many thought felt too light to start with. One thing that needs mentioned, there is no NFC antenna in the extended battery cover. You'll lose that functionality, if you had plans on ever using it. Other than that, there's just not much here not to like. We've got a handful of pictures after the break, have a look.
If you find yourself fighting with your Nexus S battery more often than you would like, you can grab the Seidio Innocell 3500mAh battery from the Android Central store for $64.95.
