    Verzion sells an official version for 49.99 that comes with the battery and back cover.

    There are also quite a few on ebay that sell for around 15 bucks.

    From what I have read on xda they seem to preform pretty good. I have yet to order mine yet, so I cannot say how they work personally.

    Seidio has a 1750mAh battery for the DInc2.

    seidioonline.com

    They have also made "Big Cahuna type" batteries for many other phones that are often around 3k mAh and come with an extended back door for the phone. I haven't seen one for the DInc2 yet, but that doesn't mean they won't come out with one.

    I have the stock HTC extended battery. Love it, although I'm currently back to the stock battery at the moment. I swap back and forth periodically.

    How big of a difference can you tell with the stock extended battery? Since its stock, its no bigger in size right?

    It is bigger, a new battery door is included. And as far as the battery life goes, you will definitely notice a big difference. It also offers way better protection from scratches on the camera/flash lenses on the phone

    Okay thanks for the info. So since its bigger, a normal silicone case probably wouldn't fit, right?

    I have tried using one on my phone with the extended battery and it doesn't fit properly... It WILL fit on but it might not stay on long. I never use cases or covers so to me it doesn't really matter but I haven't seen any that are made specifically for the extended battery yet

    So, there are no extended batteries that make use of the stock back cover? I guess it shouldn't be much of a surprise, since it's already a tight fight.

    It's a shame though, as I love my Incipio case.

    Let us know how it works out if you get it! I would like to use an Otterbox when I'm hiking or hunting or anything else that could possibly be rough on my phone and right now there are no cases available for extended batteries

    Yes if anyone has the stock sized extended battery please let us know if the gains are worth spending the money on. I know those bigger batteries are great, had one with my original incredible but would like to stay as close to stock size as possible so I can keep using my cases.

    I had the seidio 1750 and didn't notice much of a difference, except that it drops off the first 10-20% a LOT faster than the stock battery, but levels out after that. But I'm getting excellent battery life (easily 1+ days) on the stock battery as is... but I'm probably considered a "light to moderate" user...

    My battery life has gotten surprisingly better as well, no real need for an extended battery now thank goodness. Where I work, out on the floor my phone is in and out of service, thus draining the battery. However, I gave Juice Defender a try and saw great results.

    Remember when to turn things off like 3g or wifi that way it won't kill the battery by searching service.

    Not a surprise, since if I remember correctly, it was shown that Seidio batteries for the Droid did not have the capacity that they advertised.

    There is a seller on eBay (moretalktime) who sells custom TPU cases for a lot of phones including the incredible 2 with the extended battery.
