    Not sure if you've looked into the 2100mah extended battery or not, but I just ordered one and a lot of people have said it adds very little to the back of the phone, to the point where you can use most "stock" cases.

    The Verizon rep said I should receive it by Friday... They still have a sale on the extended batteries so I was able to get it for only $25... I have been seeing about 12-13 hours of battery life on the standard battery with moderate use so I'm pretty interested to see how much more life the extended battery can provide.

    Sweet! I'm coming from a Thunderbolt so I think any battery out right now will seem like a huge improvement for me ha. Hopefully I get it though :/

    I have the extended battery and it still feels like a super thin phone. Not sure I can really tell much of a difference in my hand.

    I've read that the 3rd party extended batteries (that hold more than the Samsung extended battery) add quite a bit to the back.

    I have the extended battery from verizon and I am using it just fine with a cruzerlite tpu case meant for the standard battery.

    Case aside though, I think the battery cover with the extended feels better in the hand than stock! Definitely worth checking out.

    I haven't seen much improvement in battery life though and have actually had some odd things happening such as battery reading 0% and the phone turn off then I turn the phone back on and its at 20%! This is after about 2 weeks of using it so I don't think it should be that it of calibration...
