    Does anyone have a extended battery in their nexus? How long dies it last compared to the normal battery? I'm thinking of buying one. Thanks

    I have the Samsung 2100mAh and it does give approx three hours more and the slightly heavier weight makes it feel better too IMO. Another plus point is that a silicone cover will/should still fit!

    It maybe gives u an hour of use alone or a few hours of standby time.

    I get about 60 to 90 minutes more. To go with it I bought a ZAGGsparq 2.0. This small extended battery will charge my GN 4 times without recharging. Phone in special is $50.00. Wouldn't leave home without it.

    I would not buy the extended battery, instead I would buy a spare standard. It is hard to find good cases to fit the extended and those that do fit, do not fit good.

    The TPU cases fit perfect.

    I got mine from Verizon, and I'm really glad that I did. Even though the bump was less than %20, for me it helped.

    I got it because it was half price and I would have been purchasing a spare battery anyway (which was not half price). It's not that big of a difference in life, but it is some more life. Expect it to give you 1-3 hours more life depending on usage. Since they were half price, i bought 2 so I don't have to worry about carrying two different battery doors for 2 different batteries. Yes the standard door will fit the extended battery (and the extended door will fit the standard battery), but neither fit is to my standards (too tight or too lose) so I don't bother with the regular battery anymore as I generally don't need 3 batteries, just 2.
