Personally I'd go with the lower number. It's safer and recharging a TP that's completely discharged can be a wee bit more challenging.
In terms of a larger battery, the battery is built in so unless you want to attempt surgery on your TP, your options are somewhat limited. Personally I just place my TP on it's Touchstone when the battery drops below 50%. It's easier and I'm lazy...

I got one for each of my Touchpads (32G & 16G) and have only had them connected to USB a few times for messing with some files.
It's just so convenient to park it on the Touchstone whenever you're not using it and having it be at 100% all of the time. I have a leather case for my 32G TP and it charges right through it with no trouble at all.
Do be aware that unless you can find a used one you're not going to get any deals. They can be found, but I gave up trying to nickel and dime on them and ended up paying between $40 and $60 shipped. I suspect the people who have them realize there is a slight demand for them even though TPs have essentially disappeared...

Yes. And that's a better price than I could find a month ago, so I would jump on it.
I have mixed emotions about screen protectors.
I have been a big advocate of ZAGG brand shields, having discovered them when they were just a local concern. Really good stuff, great warranty, very easy people to work with.
That being said, the quality of the glass is such these days that I can't imagine (short of physical abuse) having issues with my screen. However, my 16G TP got a scratch on the screen within the first couple of days, the only reason I can think of is a piece of sand or grit got on it and rubbed into the screen by the cover.
When I got my 32G, I was all ready to get a ZAGG screen protector for it, but I didn't like what it did to the screen, both visually and from a tactile standpoint.
At this point I have no screen protector on either, and I'm just careful about wiping them off before I close the covers. To date I have yet to get (any more) scratches.
