The Galaxy Nexus is a wonderful phone. But what makes it great — namely, that 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus display — also means the battery doesn't last long. Now there's an answer.

Samsung just launched an extended battery pack and cover bundle specifically for the Galaxy Nexus. It includes a 2100 mAh extended battery — which should keep you going, oooh, at least the whole day, if not into a second. The replacement covers is to accommodate the slightly bulkier size. The bundle costs $49.99 and is available now.

The big problem with most modern smartphones is battery life, so $50 to improve it isn't too bad at all. It does make me wonder why Samsung doesn't include the 2100 mAh unit as standard, though. [Samsung via TechCrunch]

DISCUSSION

PSA: This is for the Verizon model and the battery WILL NOT FIT GSM MODELS. It is an entirely different shape.

EDIT: well, I guess they're both rectangles, but the dimensions are off.
