The smartphone of today hits the battery pretty hard, and some phone owners get second batteries to make sure they can get through a full day of use. Seidio has a double capacity battery for the Nexus One coming soon to help with the problem.

Nexus One extended battery

The smartphone of today hits the battery pretty hard, given all the sophisticated hardware at play. The Nexus One is such a smartphone, with some folks planning on getting a second battery to get through a busy day. For those who don’t like carrying a second battery, the folks at Seidio are offering a double capacity battery for the Nexus One that should be shipping soon.

Seidio is a maker of phone accessories as well as batteries. I am using an extended battery on my Palm Pre from the company that has worked well. The Innocell 2800mAh Extended Life Battery for the Nexus One (long name indeed) is exactly double the 1400mAh of the standard Nexus One battery so it should provide a long time between charges. The battery requires a replacement back for the phone (included) to make room for the thicker battery. According to our sources at Seidio, the extended battery should be shipping next week and is priced at $64.95. I usually don’t like adding thickness and weight to my phones but for some this might be just the thing you are looking for.

  1. Mugen Power also makes extended batteries for a TON of handsets. I’m thinking of picking up either a 3200mAh or 4500mAh battery for a TP2 later this year.
