I have ordered one of those too. But it says it will take like mid next month to test out. So it will take some time :/

Buying one of these to try out. I like having a spare charged battery in my wallet in case I ever need it. When my phone's dead, I feel lost to the world. Will post when I receive/test it.

I'm interested in this http://www.ebay.com/itm/3x-1850mAh-B...ht_2899wt_1163 but I feel a lot more comfortable using OEM batteries. I already have the extended battery from verizon and the one that came with it so I should be good for now
Current Phone
-Samsung Galaxy Nexus - CM9 nightly - Franco.Kernal
-Invisishield and otterbox commuter for when I need a little more protection

Past Phones
-Blackberry Storm (lag)
-Samsung Fascinate (loved it)
-HTC Thunderbolt (2 hour battery wtf?)
-Droid Charge (no aosp :()
-Droid Razr (too thin to be comfortable)

These ones look like they would fit perfect! And cost only ~$4 each compared to the "Galaxy Nexus" batteries which costs $18 each!

They even have the NFC Antenna built in!!
Just an FYI, i have an I777 and ordered similar batteries that said they have NFC but didn't. So don't expect for your batteries to have NFC; however, i can say that they do deliver on backup time.

$3 + $1 s/h = $4

notice that it says: "noar field communication"

this could still have the NFC and be a type-o or it could not have the NFC. We won't know until someone buys it and tests it. I may buy it myself in a few weeks. I just bought 2 x hyperions for way too expensive ($18 each!) and those don't have NFC for sure.

If not having NFC is no big deal to you, it might be worth buying one to test. Don't forget to let the community know!
Got one of these batteries today in the mail, seems to work just fine. I will try the NFC capability
out tomorrow and post the results, or if anyone knows how to test it on the phone let me know. Hard to beat a $4 OEM battery!
