Hyperion honeycomb case and the Qcell case fit Hyperion, Anker, QCell extended battery covers but do not Fit Seidio Battery Covers.
QCell
Better protection than the Hyperion but only 2 color options. But, full coverage screen protectors will get lift with this case. It'll provide better protection from drops than the Hyperion.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o02_s00_i01
Hyperion Honey Comb
Has the most color options but the volume and power buttons are very hard to push. I wouldn't recommend it for protection either, since its very very very thin.

This is for people who aren't afraid of cutting up their $30+ cases to fit extended batteries.

Default Customer Service rating/ Universal Charger reviews

Universal Chargers

1.White Hyperion Charger only charges batteries to 88%. It will only charge to 60%-69% when the gold connectors are not perfectly lined up.(Very hard to line up the connectors perfectly)
2(?).Not really a universal charger. Black QCell charger(Says on the charger its for S3's) charges batteries to 100%.(Tested with 4200mAH Hyperion, 4400mAH Anker, OEM 2100mAH, QCell 2100mAH) I wasn't able to test the charge times. Will test when I have the time.





Customer Service
1.Anker Customer service
Replies to your emails within a day,friendly, and tries to resolve your problems
2.Hyperion
Replies to your emails within several days,not that good at english, somewhat helpful
3.QCell
Ignored all my emails.

Default Battery Covers, Battery Size Comparisons

The hump on the Seidio is the reason why you need that battery cover to use Seidio Extended battery cases.

This will help many to decide, if only someone would be able to do mugen too. The Anker does not seem to be as insane as some others who have a hyperion but I may be wrong :S.
