    Jig, my 19 year old son said he ought to join B.H. after I read your comment to him - a proud tear welled up in my eye!

    I like how the case uses 2 batteries. I've been a bit envious of people with Samsung phones that have cases where you replace the back instead of simply popping something over the existing battery door. Even though the extended battery case adds some bulk, I'll bet it's not much and even makes the phone easier to hold. Does the front cover bother him when he's on a call, or does it fold out of the way (or do you just keep it closed while talking)?

    With Samsung the info of the caller shows up in the window & he receives the call with the case closed.

    That's pretty cool; but why does the Samsung battery have to go in the back piece, or does it? From the design, I'm guessing the Samsung battery also has contacts on the back to match up with the back piece, or does it not?

    Ed, I don't why the Samsung battery had to be put in the back - he just read the directions & did it. I didn't take a look at how it worked & if I did - I probably wouldn't understand. Maybe I can snap a pic & upload it here. I'll look into it. He's enjoying the case & having plenty of battery.

    I think this pic explains it. He has an Anker battery on the right, instead of his original Samsung.

    The picture I see shows that a special Power Case Battery is placed in the phone in place of the original battery. The Power Case Battery has additional contact points on the back, which connect to the case. The case holds the original (or replacement) battery. This way, the 2 batteries work together to power the phone.
    The picture I'm looking at is in scjtt's link and is the 3rd picture in the group of provided product shots.

    In the reviewers section, there's a video that shows how it works.

    That's it Jig. What he really likes is that when he plugs his phone, because of the way it is set up, both batteries are automatically charged.
