    Any recommendations on slightly larger, quality batteries that will fit with the stock cover? I was relatively happy with my battery life, charged it a few times off my computer and watched it drop, and seem to be recovering. I'd still like a little more, if possible.

    If you want a larger battery pretty sure you'll have to get an extended battery that comes with the new back cover. I looked at larger batteries and never found a larger one without a thicker cover.

    Yeah. Only the Droid Razr has the stock cover with a extended battery. :p

    I like to stick with OEM batteries. Best price I've seen is at wirelessground.com $19.95 and then you just need a spare battery external charger. I got a Lenmar universal charger from Staples and will also get a Lenmar USB clip on charger when they are back in stock.

    Anker makes a slightly larger battery that will fit inside, check Ebay, they are quite good and pretty cheap (about $10), you can probably get 10-15% more compared to a stock battery.

    I use one on my Evo 4g and I'm quite happy with it.

    Just search up Anker Optimus V (or vm670), on Ebay or Amazon.
