    Ok I’ll make this quick ordered on eBay and they arrived about a week later. First thing I notice was they were complete sets 2 batteries and 2 back covers(I thought it was 2 batt 1 cover) then I picked up the cover and wow, very nice soft touch rubber coating very close to my seidio innocase however this back looks better than there’s no weird indentation completely smooth. I charged the battery in my $10 eBay charger and it took forever which makes sense if it’s double the capacity. Fully charged put it in evo .battery cover is a perfect fit but not as flexible as oem , so you hear it snap in place also takes more effort to remove but fit and finish is perfect you would never know it was after market.
    now For the torture test all radios on except Bluetooth I get 4 g around the Bronx and at my house but I did turn it off when there was no signal.I used orb live to stream a couple on TV shows off my server, YouTube all day, calls, text and more video! It lasted 26 hrs!! I get about 8-14 depending on how I use it with the standard battery.

    Hey, any possible way to measure how thick it is? Reason is, right now I'm using the Seidio Innocase Active. If I were to get the 3000 + cover, it wouldn't need a cover anymore since camera is far from the surface. For some reason, I don't think it's that much thicker than my setup now. Let me know, thanks!

    Ah, I wouldn't use the cover over it. I would use the cover that comes with the battery as the main cover. Only reason I have the Seidio over my Evo now is mainly for the camera.

    Can you take a shot comparing the height of both covers laying on a flat surface side by side? Thanks.

    I bought this also but my battery seems more like 2000mah not 3000mah. I contracted the seller and he is sending me a replacement battery. If the new one truly is 3000mah I will be extremely happy. If not I will buy the seidio 3500mah battery and use this battery cover. I really like the battery cover it does truly look like it could be stock.

    My 3000 doesn't do well at all. It lasts maybe a bit less than my 1500. Rather than fool around trying to get a good one, I just ordered the Seido. That one has gotten universally good reviews.

    Ok I really want one of these but I would still want to use a case of some sort for protecting the sides and front.....any options out there for a case/cover that will work/fit with these extended battery covers?
