Default Extended Batteries?

Anybody have any luck with extended batteries? If so what is a good brand to get and where from?

I bought a generic 1800mAh battery on the cheap through eBay. It has worked fine for me.

Yes, but is it better than stock? I highly doubt it's actually 1800mAh. If it is, then the Chinese have turned into wizards.

I am currently using these. I just started using it, so not sure how different it will be. I will let you know.

The reviews are kind of hit and miss

I seen one on ebay where you remove the battery cover, and it was a case too. with like a 3500ma or so.

But I like my Otterbox to much.

I'm using an Anker 1600mAh from Amazon. It's noticibly better than the stock battery, but it takes a week of overnight charging to get the most out of it.
If at first you don't succeed...SEARCH!

I bought an Anker Slimtalk external battery for mine. Going pretty good so far. I can top up my battery when it goes too low in the evening.

I bought an Anker 1600 mAh and actually performs slightly better than stock battery.. maybe It's the Rom maybe not... Because with ICS I got 23 hours with stock and 18 with Anker..

I have a Dynapak(I think that's the name) from Amazon and I notice a difference compared to stock. I think I paid $16 when I bought it for two. I believe it says they're 1600 mAh or 1650. I'm happy with it.
