Absolutely Loving my Galaxy S3
I was in a Verizon corporate store today and bought the car dock and wanted to get the extended battery, but it is at least twice as thick as the original and you need a new and bulky back cover and it no longer will fit in the car dock. I think I'm just going to get a standard OEM replacement battery.
Go to the search box on Verizon Wireless's homepage and type in "Thunderbolt battery" - both the standard and extended HTC batteries should pop up.

I just ordered an extra standard battery from Verizon for $29.99. It's nice to have my corporate discount. I did buy another battery off of ebay but after seeing all the comments here, I decided I would rather be safe than sorry. Thanks for all the good advice here. My battery life has not been too great today..had to charge it around 3pm (about 8 hours of moderate use). My droid 1 would last well into the night. I am hoping it gets better as time goes by.
Say you do get an extra battery, would it harm your phone to take the back cover off 2 times a day to swap battery? Also do you think the USA sellers on eBay are any better than the Chinese ones?? They go for $20 compared to $6 Chinese ones.

Unless you're getting a big extended with an extended battery door cover, don't expect a whole lot more battery life. Using a Seidio 1750 (which is reportedly only a 1500 mah by the way, some guy on androidforums tore the wrapper off and googled the serial number) I don't get that much more power than stock. Using an incredible.
