I just received my extended battery case from htc pedia Just a short review of the red extended battery case. One word "AWESOME". I was concerned about the case adding extra girth onto the already huge phone, but to my surprise it doesn't seem to add any extra weight. The reason being is the case is just a gel shell (if you will). It covers out the outtermost of the phone. The phone in the back is still exposed for the extended battery part which is a negative. You could still drop the phone on the back and damage the battery cover. I was anticipating that the whole phone would be covered. IMO if you would buy a regular verizon red gel case and cut the back out of the case you will have yourself an extended battery case without the added cost. If you are the type that needs an otter box type of case this is NOT for you, again the back is exposed. If you have any questions ill be happy to answer any. FYI posted on a few different forums so if you see at a few different places, yep its me lol.
