    I've tried a couple cases from the Verizon store, a gel case and a two piece Incipio, neither of which really fit the extended battery. I just saw the video fro the SGP hybrid, which looks like an awesome case, but when then reviewer puts the extended batter in, the case fits very poorly.

    So, I'm hoping a few of you have tried enough cases and have some suggestions of cases that actually fit ‚Äčthe extended battery.

    Edit: Fit without having to remove the battery plate, or modify it any sort of manner.

    The otterbox defender that is made for the stock battery fits perfect with the extended battery and new back plate - been using the two from day one :)

    All of them will if you leave the back of the phone off. :)

    I've been debating the defender to use while I'm at work, I had a Kraken on my X and loved the protection it provided. For day to day use though I think the defender is far too bulky for me needs... I should maybe edit my post to reflect that, although it would be nice if this thread turned into a database of sorts of extended battery cases.

    I'm currently using the Incipio NGP with the extended battery and cover. It fits perfectly, no issues whatsoever.

    I have no idea why their website states it doesn't fit the extended battery. It's probably the best fitting case I have tried yet. Works great.

    How is the texture of the case? Is it more rubbery (that would attract lint) or more like a smooth gel sort of case? The Incipio case I tried was the silicrylic case, which is an awesome fitting/looking case with the stock batter, but quite the opposite with the extended.

    It's definitely very smooth. Does not attract lint. Sometimes I almost wish it had just a tad more grip to it. It can be a little slippery feeling.

    The Cruzerlite Androidified is a sharp case! And for about $10, it's hard to beat. The fit looks fairly good although it appears there is a small gap around the speaker cutout? Maybe I'm just being a little too picky?

    I have the Seidio surface case and use the extended battery with the stock back and the cover fits snug but good.

    Stock back fits over the extended battery? Nice! Did you really have to force it or anything?

    Seidio now has two models made specifically for the LTE GNex with the official extended battery (2100mah). I think it is the Surface and the Convert case, you can find those on their website.

    I have been using the Cruzerlite Androidified A2 with the extended battery and that fits great. There have been some issues that the openings for the headphones or charging port are not big enough, but mine are fine. And since you can get them buy 2, get one free from Amazon, I got three cases for $20, can't beat that.

    Did you have to modify the stock back to fit with the extended?

    Diztronic TPU case

    I actually believe this is the best soft case invented. I bought the translucent smoke case from amazon for $9.90 with an edge to edge screen protector+ free shipping. I found out that my idiot dad (i found mean but isn't) bought a case for $20 and a 3-pack of screen protectors (that suck) for $15. So, he saw mine and immediately loved it. Of course, he decided to buy one without consulting me first (told him never to do) and bought the matte black one. He was quite disappointed. Depending on what color you like, i would suggest choosing wisely, if you choose this case. And yes it does support the extended battery. The translucent smoke also blends in with the stock color of the phone. Good Luck.

    I have a few cases now. I seem to be collecting. I tried the Diztronic and didn't like it. Gave it to my dad. I have the Verizon Silicon Case which is great but on the bulky side. I've tried the cheap s--cases and they don't fit the extended perfectly - almost.

    I just today got the Cruzerlite in black - it fits perfectly with the extended and looks nice.

    Ultimately I want a Bumper case but until then I may use the Cruzerlite since it seems to be made to fit the extended.

    The stock battery cover over the extended battery is a tight fit. I would not do it without putting it in a case. I would be concerned that slight bumps would knock it loose but works great in the case.

    hmm

    Mine scratches, attracts cat/dog hair, dust, and other detritus to it. I gave up and got the 2P version from the vzw store - while the silicone glove attracts even more schmutz, at least I can hold onto the phone. Tight fit, but it does fit.
