My plan had been to purchase a 2nd stock battery and just carry that in my pocket for when the 1st one runs out. This is what I did with my D1 and it worked out great for me. Unlike the D1, though, the TB's battery door is really hard to remove and I always feel like it's going to break when I try to remove it. I wonder how it will hold up after repeatedly opening and closing it. The D1 battery door was a much better design IMO with the little metal arms that slid into the phone body. The extended battery is not an option for me because it will not fit in the car dock.
