    Any info on how the extended battery cover looks? Does it bulge or hump or anything?

    I'm still trying to find some comparison pics, haven had much luck though.

    I'd love if my TPU case can fit the extended battery.

    Oops .. sounds like a bunch of cases fit with the extended battery! http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=188116

    Also, it is still $25 online! Just ordered mine. Go to verizonwireless.com and make sure you ARE NOT logged into your account. Once you add it to your cart it will come up on sale.

    Just went and got it.

    To answer the question, there is zero noticeable size difference and it still fits the case I bought

    if you look at the lower hump the extended battery just smooths that out. so instead of a dip you have a smooth transition to the camera

    I have no problem with the extended battery installed and the Verizon silicon case or the Verizon GN car dock.

    Question...

    So I just got the extended battery and its not that much bigger (physically) than the 1850mAh battery. The only bad thing is If I wanted to carry both batteries with me I'd have to carry both covers.

    So my question is, would wedging (or taping) a piece of paper behind the 1850mAh battery in order to fill the gap and fit in tightly with the extended cover on would be a bad idea?
