The battery isn't exposed, the silicone skin covers it.
As far as how safe the battery is, I would guess the plastic that came with the extended battery would provide better protection than the silicone, so you would save about $15-$20 if you dropped the phone and it landed on its back.
Personally I chose to go with the modded case since I would prefer to pay $15-$20 in the event I damaged the battery over risking shattering the glass screen and paying about $60 dollars or more plus the time it would take to make the repairs.
