Sad Using extended batteries

I'm looking for an extended battery for my SG3 and one of the batteries I was looking into was the Gorilla Gadgets battery. I see there are good reviews on their site but after finding this thread: PROBLEM: Gorilla Gadgets 3500 mAh Ext. Battery, I feel skeptical. (Plus, I can't find any other reviews with this battery & phone)

I also experienced something like this with the last phone I was using. It was an Aftermarket product. At first, I thought something with wrong with my phone (Indulge phone) but I tested it out with the original battery and it was working fine. I still have the extended battery and it is out of shape now. o.O

So has anyone experience any problems with their extended battery? What battery are you using? How long have you had it?

Whoops, didn't see the thread is for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Using the Hyperion 4200 extended battery. Love it, no problems. Provides twice the battery power and I really don't mind the added thickness and weight. I would highly recommend.

Me too.
Carry it naked in your pocket or on your hip with the Seidio case and holster.
