Thanks for the quick reply!!
The FedEx guy just dropped off my extended battery (BW8X) and battery cover one day early. This battery is a beast. It adds a pretty good deal of thickness and heft to the phone but I like it, even more than I liked the phone without it. With the extended battery it is now comparable to the OG Droid (or thereabouts). I prefer the heft because it feels more secure in my hand.
Now I need to decide on a case. I need something pretty robust and solid (like an Otterbox Defender) with a belt clip/holder. I've scoured this and other forums for suggestions but I haven't found anything I like yet. I'll probably check out the Verizon case to see if that will work for me.
Overall I really like the Bionic. I've had it just over two weeks and I have very few complaints. The original battery was way too small and the network drops are a pain but I don't suffer those too much. I'm on WiFi most of the day and when I do need mobile data the 4G works great. Those times that I'm in a fringe 4G/3G area the data does drop more but it's not unbearable. I'll patiently wait for the OTA rather than load the leaked updates. I'm looking forward to ICS as well, but what I would REALLY like is some tasty Project Elite for this phone, if only Greg would be willing (and get a Bionic to develop on). He can't have mine so I guess I'll stick with the eventual stock ICS until a suitable ROM happens by.

Current Phone: Galaxy Nexus (Rooted and Rommed running JBSorcery 4.3 with Trinity Kernel)
Retired Phone: Original Droid (Rooted and RunningCyanogenmod 7)
My first cycle was like that. But the batt actually stayed alive at 1% for another 7-8 hours with like app and internet use. I suppose they just need to be calibrate or wtver, cuz my second cycle is going much better. Moderate app internet and netflix use and I'm only down to 89% from this morning til now

Have had my Bionic for two weeks now and the extended battery for the past week. It's the battery that should have come with the phone(though I can see the business justification for not). Of intermediate/heavy use, I get a good 14-16 hours out of this battery, which is about 4-6 more than I was getting with the OG battery. I'm not always able to get to a charger so this is great.
