Default Extended Battery

Ok, glancing at extended batteries for the Gnex and this seems like a pretty good option. I bought them for the OG and they are good although admittedly they do not seem to hold a charge quite as well as the stock OG battery...but even though they drain a little, I still get better overall battery life due to the increased storage. Looks like no additional case is needed on these? Anybody have them?

Also, looking at this case...super, ahem cool, but uh maybe not to everyone.

Or more normal, less "cool" ones

I think the third case is probably best. I seem to be leaning GNex this week. And it's only $99 on Amazon mobile right now.

I'm still running the stock battery so I can't comment on that. Though I've read a lot of positive feedback about extended batteries for our devices, and the fact that it isn't bulky is a huge plus!

As far as the case is concerned, I'm rocking the 3rd one. I bought 2 and I have no complaints. They don't take away from its sexiness IMO.

Probably purchase a battery a case soon. But honestly, the battery life compared to the of is solo much better I haven't felt the need to. Plus all the ones I looked at made the phone bigger. The gnex is too sexy to be covered up and bulky.
