    Has anyone tried the extended battery? Is it much heavier or bigger? How does it compare to stock?

    Yes...this is my first day using my extended battery and I LOVE IT !!! let me say that again I FREAKIN LOVE IT !!! Turned on phone at 5am using it my normal use as I do it is now 8:46 & I still have 47% left. It does make the phone heavier of course and thicker, however I put it up to my wife's Motorola Droid X w/ a regular battery and case it is about the same size. I find the phone a lot more easier to hold on to as well w/ the extended battery. While my battery life got better each day using the regular battery I just felt better going w/ the extended battery. You can get the extended battery for $29.99 and cover for $9.99. Please note the extended battery case they picture in their picture is different than the one you will receive. The one you get is the exact match to the regular cover just bigger of course. Just remember you can't use a protective case w/ the extended battery, they don't make one that fits.

    This is a post I left about 2 weeks ago on another thread

    Let me correct some info I stated in the previous post. I was telling you about the price on verizonwireless.com. Just double checked and since Sunday when I bought it online the price went up to $39.99. However, still very much worth it !!!

    Well with the first full charge of the extended battery, starting at 18:30 on the 28th, I had 28 hours with 10% before I started charging again.

    There was a total of about 2.5 hours of talk, 3.5 of Hulu and internet TV, many text and emails, 100% on screen brightness during the day, and 8+ hours of sleep for me and more standby for the phone. This will definitely work for me while I'm on 12hr shift not worrying about getting to a plug.

    We don't have 4g yet, but I should be fine when we do, I hope.

    Just my experience for the day. Hopefully the battery will get better as it is conditioned.

    If you use aftermarket batteries doesn't that void your warranty, say if the battery overheats or causes any damage to your phone?
