    Title pretty much says it all - I'm getting the extended battery, and am looking for a case that works with it. Something that adds as little additional bulk as possible would be good.

    Thanks,
    jgalak.

    Sedio.com has 3 different cases for extended battery.

    Check out the Seidio ones. They're higher quality in my opinion.

    Get the seidio. I still can't belive it took somebody MONTHS to make a quality case for the extended battery knowing of the power issues with DINC and TB.

    Get the silicone cover from Verizon. Not sure if it's on their website yet but it's available to order over the phone and some stores have it. I got mine yesterday and like it. Unlike other silicone or gel covers, it covers the extended battery too instead of having a cutout.

    Those cases cover the kickstand which is bad in two ways. The sound is muffled and the quality of the kickstand on the case stinks.

    The sound is a bit muffled but not by much. The kickstand still lets the phone sit horizontally or vertically without issue.

    Just bought one earlier this week from LetsTalk.com. $17 shipped, allows the original kickstand on the phone to be used, and it fits and functions great. Was shipped very quickly too.

    It's a rubberized plastic that's easy to grip, slides into a cottony pocket more easily than silicone cases, and doesn't attract as much lint either. Like I said, the TB's kickstand can be used with it (as well as the proximity sensor). It isn't as thick and cushiony as something like an Otterbox Defender or even a Seido Active, but it's enough in my opinion. Doesn't add a lot of bulk either.

    It's a two-piece case where a small frame rings the surface around the screen and the larger back side snaps into place. Apologies for poor photo quality from my little Nikon Coolpix S210:

    That's exactly what I was looking for. I had one on my bolt with the regular battery. I ordered mine an hour ago and I already have a tracking number.
    Thanks for sharing fourseamer

    That's strange, you must have received a defective case. The cutout for my charger is fine with about 1/16" clearance all the way around.

    I should have clarified. The charger port is cut out however my plug head is kind of bulky so the silicone case prevemts a snug fit. As a result if I move the phone at all it disconnects from the plug.

    Taking the phone out of the case can be a task. I like this case though, the rubberized part gets a little oily feeling in the hand. It's not a bad case for $17. You are right it isn't going to take a drop like an otterbox, it's good to keep the phone from getting scratched up though. I wish the case would cover the light seepage, all and all im happy enough with it. Throw on a screen protector and you are golden.
