    I know there is a thread about cases already but lots must be looking for extended cases only.

    I have been looking on ebay for hours. All the hard cases either state that they will not fit or states nothing.:angry:

    How much thickness does it actually add. My DX will all fit in any case with the extended bat even though they say it wont.
    Obviously, the TB is another story! ;)

    This wants to be sent from my Samsung Galaxy Nexus

    My trick with my DX2 was to leave the battery door off when I had the hard case on. The case (at least for the DX2) kept the battery as firmly in place as the regular battery door.

    It should fit in most cases since it doesn't add much thickness. The guy at the Verizon store even stuck one with the extended battery in an Otterbox Defender and it fit fine.

    I just got two extended batteries. One is charging in the standalone (which comes with another std battery, which is nice) and the other is still in the package.

    I noticed that when you unplug the cord, the phone shifts in the case, showing it isn't all that snug...there should be plenty of room for the ext battery.

    Like people have said above: My Defender worked fine with the X's extended battery.

    Is the otterbox the only case that works with the extended battery?

    Any of the TPU cases should fit. I have the Diztronic, and my wife has a Qubits case. Both fit with the extended battery.

    the extended battery fits just fine in the Otterbox Defender version, tried it myself as well... considering that the inner shell of the defender layers is hard plastic, I was really surprised. That is why I also think, that the Commuter version of the Otterbox will be fine as well, has a soft inner shell.

    I bought one of the standard silicone cases at the verizon store when I purchased the Nexus. I picked up the extended battery last night and you can hardly notice a difference. My case still fits fine. I think you will be fine with any case.

    Anychance you can link to which Qubits case your wife is using? Is it this one?

    Amazon.com: SAMSUNG GALAXY NEXUS BLACK TPU GEL SKIN CASE, IN QUBITS RETAIL PACKAGING: Electronics
    I want to order this one, but one reviewer noted that it seemed like it was made for the GSM version of the GN and didn't fit perfectly. I would expect this to be even more so with the extended battery. Thanks in advance!

    FWIW, I have the shell/holster combo from Verizon with the extended battery. The only catch is; you have to keep the back cover off in order for the shell to fit. :frown: To me, it's worth it because I love the holster, especially with the kickstand. And if I want to put the standard battery back in, the shell will still secure the smaller battery without the cover on it, so it all works out.

    good to know, getting the extended battery this week. I was too terrified to not have a case or a screen protector on my phone when I bought it so I purchased this same case in store. Payed a little more than what you can find online but I didn't want to risk dropping the phone or scratching the screen, haha.

    Thats what Ive read on other forums for the G Nex, if you use the Shell holster combo just leave the battery door off and it fits perfect.
