So, anyone know where I can get the official battery, preferably one that comes with the battery charger? Regular and extended applies to the question.

alot of the galaxy nexus batteries on ebay seem to originate in Hong Kong. since I will be going there next week, i'll be on a lookout for both official as well as non official batteries
(i feel like the difference between the official and nonofficial batteries is just the Samsung logo slapped on. I feel that the all the cases and batteries on ebay all originated from the same factory as casemate cases and other batteries etc etc.)

Don't forget that the battery needs to have an NFC antenna for NFC/Beam to work as well.

Found some good news, or what seems to be good news. I have found the official(seller claims) extended battery for sale on ebay, here's the link:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_3470wt_905

Now, before we all get excited, I am not sure of this comes with the extended battery cover. Currently inquiring the seller about it and awaiting for some good news.

Well, I would assume they would be? I mean, chances are pretty high anyway because the seller is from Korea and from what I know, only the Korean market has the extended battery for the GN. I'm just hoping that they come with the back cover so I don't have to hunt for one.

You have a good point but I'm a little hesitant since its around 40 dollars for a battery :/

Think of it this way, the original 1750mah batteries cost a heck lot more:
