Thumbs up Hyperion extended batteries now have NFC (and 4200mah)

Just thought I'd throw this out there. They now have NFC and claim an extra 200mah.
I ordered mine from Amazon.com and even though the description still doesn't list NFC or 4200mah, I got a pleasant surprise today.

I checked on ebay to see if it was a fluke and indeed they are all 4200mah and with NFC now.

If anyone is wondering, I'm only a few hours into charging it (they say charge for 12hrs the first time) and I don't have any NFC tags so I can't provide any test results at this time.

Brief summary for those new to the thread: I am able to get double the battery life of the stock battery. While this might be expected since it is 4200mah vs 2100mah, not all batteries live up to their claims. This one does.
The NFC on my first battery did not work well. It was there and did function, but was almost useless. My replacement battery, however, is amazing. It picks up NFC tags quicker than I imagined.
I'm very happy with my purchase. I can use the phone all day without having to worry about plugging in.

Yeah I saw those but I haven't decided if I want to get one yet.

BTW I'm not sure if anyone has posted this yet but the phone weighs 175g (6.2oz) with the extended battery & door. With the factory battery & door it weighs 133g (4.7oz). Both figures are without a case.

I ordered mine from Amazon 3 days ago, I hope I get the new version too. That would be nice to have.

Not yet but I'm hoping Seidio comes out with one for their soon to be released extended battery, (actually Seidio does have a "surface case" coming out but they typically only protect the side and back kind of like a glorified battery cover) Maybe they will produce an "Active" or "Convert" extended case which is for heavy duty protection. I'll post more when I get more info.

Thanks for the find and reviews. So how does the phone feel with the added bulk? Just ordered today off amazon as well as the black honeycomb tpu extended case. Hoping that it comes 4200 w/ NFC as it only stated 4000. I'll post back with another review. I figure the more reviews the more we can get a general feel for consistency of quality.
