I even charged it fully before using it and let it fully discharge before plugging it back in. Anyone else having trouble charging this beast?

I'm thinking of 3 reasons that may cause the symptoms you talked about
1-you may have a lousy charger or cable.
2- you may have a loose port on your phone (I think I've had one since December)
3- you may have GPS and stuff running that drains your battery faster than it will charge. My car charger never kept up with GPS usage
I haven't seen any negative results from installing the battery... Other than the ****storm I got in here, for shaving some plastic off the top left corner of the battery.
I recommend 2 things in general:
1- if you have CWM, delete the battery stats
2- for the 1st couple of charges, let it sit on the charger for atleast 30 minutes after it says 'battery full'

1- I like listing things instead of forming them into a statement.
2- that shows my lack of:
