Got mine today. It's currently charging.

So far I'm in agreement with most of the comments about this battery:
* The extra thickness of the battery/cover basically doubles the thickness of the Nitro...Which I actually like.
* The replacement cover is of the same high quality and fit as the original, including the texture on the back.

Can't comment on the capacity yet, but so far I'm very impressed with the package received...Especially at such a low price!

It's a WINNER!
BOTTOM LINE:
It's still only the 1st charge and 1st use, but so far I am wholly impressed!

A Little non-scientific testing
After charging overnight, this morning the Hyperion got put through a little bit of stress testing.

Every morning my young Son wakes up much earlier than I do, to keep him occupied so Dad can get a few more Zzzz's, I let him play some games on the Nitro.

Because of the types of games he likes and if he's been playing the whole time while we're getting ready for work/school...My Nitro is usually down to around 20%. Today, on the way out the door, he finally gives up the phone and when I check the battery is at 70% !!

During my commute to work, I fire up a session of Sentinel 3 (tower defense game) which is another battery killer app. When I get to my desk I'm expecting to see the battery in the area of 20%...But it's at 50%! Nice!

Other Fringe Benefits
* With the extra thickness of the back cover, the camera is now recessed by around 1/4", which means less finger smudges
* The thicker profile of the phone now also dissipates the heat more, meaning the back doesn't get as hot anymore

I think I'm just going to have to break down and order one.

Just ordered mine off eBay, $17.99 with free expedited shipping!

Extra battery life will be great, I am more excited about the added weight and thickness. I am a big guy with pretty big hands, sometimes it really feels to small and light. My wife has the Skyrocket and I hate how thin and light it is. Feels cheap and plastic-y.

I will report back with perfomance results. Currenly with CM9 and stock battery I get roughly 10-11 hours of medium use. If I could get a solid day (from waking up to going to bed) that would be awesome.
