Default Galaxy Nexus Extended Battery

1) My battery life is garbage. I took my phone in to Bestbuy to get a new battery and they said to contact samsung and get a new one, but I can't figure out how to do this. Has anyone done this/or should I just buy another battery and swap throughout the day?

2) If I just buy a battery can I get a bigger one and buy a new battery cover or can I only buy the same battery, any recommendations?

I bought a big battery on amazon, the hyperion 3800 mAh battery with nfc and is wonderful. It came with a replacement battery cover and it has doubled my battery life. Also only cost me like 20 dollars.

+1 for the hyperion 3800 w/ nfc. grabbed it for 18$ on amazon (was on sale). can't beat that.

it's superb. may want to get a case with it as well, since the back cover is a POS that comes with it.

you get used to the size of it after a week or two & it no longer is an issue
