    I would say it looks crappy!

    There are extended batteries you can get that don't extend the case but obviously don't give you as much extension!

    I bought a 3000mAh battery a while ago, which looks pretty much identical to yours. It's great to have that extra juice, and it's perfect for long trips away from a plug socket.

    But for every day use? Way too bulky, and it looks and feels pretty bad.

    I might buy an extended but normal sized one. Anyone know the highest capacity available in normal sized batteries?
