I wish it thin enough to use regular cover, but it sounds great.

Eek...for $10 i'd rather have the two batteries + charger deal that is on eBay. Although not having to rip off a case and change a battery is nice, having a monster phone with no known applicable cases is the downside for me.

If it's anything like the Mugen extended battery, I won't be complaining. The Mugen increases the thickness of the phone from 9mm to 12mm. Not a big deal considering how thin the phone already is.

When I get mine I'll be spraying the battery cover with Plasti Dip, as someone in another thread did with their spare purple battery cover. Why? Because I HATE the glossy black - it's a fingerprint magnet! Plus, it's nice to have the rubberized finish - helps keep it from slipping out of your hand!

I have a belt pouch that I use that is just begging for a fatter phone - I figure I should be in good shape with it.

The sun has shined on this dog's a$$ - the battery just came! I ordered on Friday and it arrived today from California. I'm impressed!

It's not pretty - the door is fat and piano black - but I bought this for function, not fashion!

It was about 60% charged when I got it. I am going to drain fully then give it a full charge and start from there.

Can you post some pics of battery and cover on the phone? I had one of those on my g1 back in the day and it sure wasn't pretty, but it did the job.
