Galaxy Nexus Extended Battery DOES Fit In Otterbox Cases (Video)

    When it comes to cases, Otterbox does a very nice job of keeping your phone safe. In fact, if you’re a Galaxy Nexus user, Otterbox has created 2 cases just for you. The Defender and Commuter cases are $49.95 and $39.95 respectively. Both cases have two layers of protection, and the Defender series case comes with a belt clip and doubles as a stand. As you can probably tell by the name, the Defender case protects more than the Commuter case. However, the Commuter case will be thinner and sleeker and fits into your pocket more easily.

    A lot of people have been asking me whether or not the Galaxy Nexus with the extended battery fits in the Otterbox Commuter and Defender cases. My answer to you, absolutely yes! Obviously, since the extended battery adds a millimeter or two to the total thickness of the device, the case will not fit 100% normally. However, the only difference once you put the extended battery in, is that on the commuter case, the second layer will stick up just a tiny bit. But as the second video displays, you can take off the extended battery back and everything will fit fine.

    Take a look at our Galaxy Nexus extended battery review video with the Otterbox Defender:

      why bother to buy an extended battery if you need to carry a spare? Just get one speare battery and save nausea of swithiNG cases, bad it etc

      You sir are an idiot. I’ve owned two cases for the nexus and they both broke within a couple of months of each other. They cannot withstand theadditional pressure of the extended battery.

        I am sorry to hear that. Mine had been going strong for 6 months with the extended battery. If you do not feel comfortable keeping the case on with the , you can also take off the rear battery door to make the phone thinner.

      They need an otterbox defender that will accept the 3800mAh battery, since thats the only extended battery that will last an entire day.
