    Although my local verizon store didn't have the new extended battery in stock, they had one sent over from another store and just called me let me know it was in. The sales girl said I could try it first to make sure it still fit's with my case on. Before buying this today has anyone else bought one yet? Is the slightly added battery life worth the extra $49. bucks? Thanks!

    It still fits fine in my Amzer Argyle skin/case. The extra bulge is minimal.

    Is it really that much better than the stock battery?

    i find i get 25-30% more life. the other back only makes it a touch larger, but i found that it still fit in there with my stock back. it makes it just a touch tight, but it isnt a problem. it is pricy, but for me it is worth it.

    So I had installed the Battery left widget and used it with both batteries now. In terms of my general usage I imagine it is fairly standard and average for most of us. Lots of e-mail, occasional web surfing, maybe 15 minutes total throughout the day of a game or two. I would say I am a heavy-moderate user. Oh, and Pandora while driving places...

    Every morning my battery left widget would predict the batter would last until about Midnight that night. Now, with the extend battery it predicts it will last until 4:30 AM... So with my style use it gets me an extra 4.5 hours. I've found it totally worth it.

    Just in contrast though, my wife is a very light user. She tends to only make occasional calls, e-mail and text a few times a day. She still has the original battery and I saw her widget yesterday day and when she unplugs in the morning it says that it would die around noon the next day! So, for her, the extend would probably mean a solid two days of use.

    The longer life battery is great! Easily 30% more life than with the standard!

    Order it online and use the bat30 in the promo code and get 30% off. Might even try to use it at the store.

    I use it with the stock door with NO neg. impact on the phone.

    The extended battery is no longer on the VZW website. Also bat30 seems not work anymore. :(

    I missed out on this deal.

    edit... I did a search on the VZW website and found it, but its out of stock.
