We just took delivery of a 3200mAh powerplant for the Nexus One
from the extended battery specialists over at Seidio
, and if we had to sum the kit up in a single phrase, we'd say this: it's not for the faint of heart. Gone are the Nexus One's gentle sloping curves around back, replaced with a giant soft-touch shell designed specifically to accommodate the hulking cell within. We haven't had a chance to stress-test it and see exactly how much more real-world life it gives us against the OEM battery's comparatively meager 1400mAh, but we know already that only the hardest-core users -- road warriors who can't be tied down long enough to slip in some extra juice here and there -- should be considering this behemoth of a kit, especially considering the $70 asking price and the fact that it'll preclude you from using Google's dock. Follow the break for some introductory video.
