Default Extended Batterys, Otter Boxes, and Comfortability

So I have the otterbox defender case on my phone and i love it but ive always wanted to use an extended battery. now id rather "not" have to take my case on and off a lot so separate swappable batter's are out of the question and i know they have a 3300Mhz but it comes with a separate back and wont fit in my otterbox as far as i know so what are my options on battery's? Also if you could post pictures or links to what your talking about

Either or, you can't use both together. Extended battery plus cheap silicone case with the back cut out. Actually doesn't look bad at all. (That's my configuration)

Got to choose one or the other. Extended battery with no otter box or just an otter box.

I wrote this review for my extended battery.

You could try out the andida 2000mah. They offer a little bit more juice than the stock battery and are the same size. For me they give me around an extra 2hrs for a regular day. The 3500mah battery I have is awesome and lasts alot longer but I just didn't feel as comfortable with the protection I had on my phone with the back cut out of a case. It looked ok and felt fine in my hand and talking and using it, but I didn't feel to safe if I dropped it.

Try a stock battery replacement, I think it's covered under warranty. Both my batteries (stock and extendes) charge up to 100%.

It charges to 100% fine for me. The % reading seems a little off sometimes but I found that on the stock battery too with ICS. When I got the battery it came with instructions to cycle it 4 times (down to around 0 and charge for 10 hrs) before charging it for normal use. I kept my stock battery handy for the first 2 days, after the 2nd charge is started to see it get around what the stock battery got, but my first day with it was brutal... barely got 6 hours out of it but luckily it got alot better.

How long do you get on battery life with the 2000mah battery and with the stock? I only get about 6-8 hrs of battery life with the stock one. Yes i do use my phone alot.

I use mine a lot also, and I ended up with an extended 3400mah. You can find even up to 3600mah for under $15-$20, I know it looks bulkier but I can't go back to stock battery nomore, the investment totally worth for me.

From what I've read ('cause I also was interested in the 2000mah one) the difference between it and the stock one is'nt much, their times (talk, screen, standby) are similar. I use to get the same as you, about 6-8 hours of use daily, now I get at least 14-16 with the same usage, if not more.
