I used a dremel to cut the battery/memory hole

Well, I know what my next project will be! I am going to do the battery mod with an Otterbox I just traded for. So, its not like I have to pay the $50 for the case. And I already have the dremel... so the only thing i need to buy is the battery. I see that these Mugen batteries are pushing 100 dollars on the bay... would any 6500 mah battery be good enough for very long battery life?

I would be careful, if other users aren't having problems I'd say go for it, just be aware that the adage about gettingwwhat you pay for is often true with batteries

Not that difficult... A couple of medical databases and some games will chew up your space pretty quick

Very true. But worst case would I have a crappy cheap battery? Or could it actually damage my phone...

Anker battery is just as good and it's way cheaper than mugen. It has solid reviews on it and I'm actually using and I am very satisfied with it. I actually did the Otterbox mod myself (sans sd mod) and I love it!

Oh, btw, the Anker battery only costs $16 (when I purchased it about 6 weeks ago)!
