You might remember when we reported late in August that Samsung were going to sell their official 2000mAh extended battery (& back cover) for the Galaxy S II i9100 starting from the 29th of September. Well that date has been pushed back about a month, with a new release date set for October 24th.

The pricing is still the same though at $39.95, so there’s nothing to worry about on that front. I found the postponed release a tad annoying as I was eyeing a few of these batteries off — a ‘few’ to give away; one for me.

Oh well, we’ll just keep waiting. Who else is a little bit annoyed? Let us rage in the comments.

Interesting…I am a bit wary when it comes to non-official batteries.

Hey mate, have you received your extended battery from these guys yet?.. I don’t mean to be a the bearer of bad news but apparently this version of the battery is the NFC version and the back cover is only compatible with the Korean SGSII. Have you tried it on your phone yet? I ordered mine from these guys as well and mine came today (haven’t opened it yet) but I’ve been communicating with them and this is what they have told me. ‘The EB-K1A2EBSG is the Korean version of the EB-K1A2EBEGSTD, and was supposed to be compatible with all Galaxy S… Read more »

I sent mine back to Korea on Monday for a refund, you will probably find that Australia Post will tell you that you can’t send batteries.
