Just upgraded from the infuse and this battery was my first purchase for my skyrocket. So far I'm really happy with the way it fits and feels. The battery life so far is really great!

No modifications are necessary, the battery comes with a new cover.
You do have to charge the phone completely (i let mine charge overnight), then wipe the battery status, then charge it again for at least an hour.

I use a Mugen standard size one. Maybe it's just the way I use it, but it seems to give me a few extra hours a day consistently. I almost never get an extended battery because no one ever seems to make decent protective cases for the phone with it mounted.

I can't say they're the best, or even that great, but I just bought 2 batteries and a charger for $10 on ebay. That way if my phone decides to die, I've got spares.

Just ordered the 2 Anker 2200mAh Li-ion Battery with charger set, should have em tomorrow. Right now I'm getting a full day with moderate usage. Battery seems pretty popular so should do well.

I get about a work day with moderate usage. Text, browsing, tapatalk and about 15 mins of tethering. Mostly text.

About 8-10 hours.

A bigger battery would be convenient but ugly imo.

Wile that is awesome you have a battery that works for you, everyone uses there phone different, for instance i noticed that your screen didn't appear to be on for as long as mine, and you seem to have much better signal in your area than i do in mine. Wile the 2100 may work well for you, with the location and the way i use my phones, i have to have the bigger battery. It's great to see what the 2100 is capable of.
I'll end up getting one of those for my Fiancee, as she needs to be able to use an otterbox case.
