I bought mine on ebay for $10. I don't know how they compare to the others, but for the price I have been extremely happy.

The case is made of thermoplastic polyurethane. Good price for everything, mixed reviews. I'll condition this battery before I really use it - install the new battery, use/drain it 'till the phone turns off, leave it off, plug in charger and wait till full charge, turn phone on, and repeat entire process until I get bored. Then do this once a week.
A good program for draining the battery faster is Juice Offender (not Juice Defender). Install that, check-mark everything except the vibrator and LED flash. I believe these can be damaged if they are left on too long. I use this program and can drain a full stock battery in less than an hour. I don't care what the manufacturers say, conditioning a cell phone battery helps.

l bot several batteries - one frm Amazon called "Magic Mobile" 3500mAh (came w/ extended back cover) , but it doesn't last any longer than the regular 1800mAh ones from EC Technology. The ECT ones are lasting comparable to the original Samsung that came w/ the phone - maybe a little better. Just my experiences.
I received my Trexcell 3800mA extended battery, back cover, and case. I've only been using it for a few days but it seems to hold a charge twice as long as my original battery! That makes sense... twice as big (3800mA vs 1800mA) means twice as long! When I install the extended battery, case, and cover, the total thickness of the phone is exactly 18mm, the same as my old Palm Centro with no case. I'm happy!
A relationship with no trust is like a cell phone with no service, all you can do is play games.
