I know the market is quite small, but does anyone make a case that will accept the extra bump created by the extended battery? Even a simple silicone bumper would be good, I just want to reduce to slippery feel a bit.

I just got one of these and it seems to work fairly well. Not a fan of the exposed edges, but it does cover the corners and adds a minimal amount depth to the phone while adding just a bit more length. Still undecided, but the extra "battery" is sure nice. I'm coming from an iPhone4 with a mophie case and was extremely spoiled on battery life.

Unable to post links just yet. So google the Helios: Slim Backup Battery Power Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 at Wireless Emporium.com

Thanks for the find Solar, I just ordered one. I have the 4500mAh extended battery from WE, and it's a bit slippery. I have the TPU bumper frames on order too, although those are made for the regular battery backs I thought I would cut them down a bit to fit, but the Hyperion Extended looks like a better solution.

Question
I have the Hyperion extended case to go with my big Hyperion battery.

It works very well and is nowhere near as slippery as the stock Hyperion back.

Is this a silicone type bumper or is is hard plastic? I was thinking about just using Plasti-Dip and being done with it.
