To answer your question - no, I don't think it will go "bad."
But why do you have a spare battery if you are NOT going swap them?
Ideally, if you have a spare battery, you would also have a way to charge the spare while not in the phone. Other wise, you'd be swapping out one dead battery for another dead battery.

Thought about just getting the extended battery, but I can't deal with that huge bulge on the back of the case.

This may sound like a dumb question(s) but, oh well. If I bought an extended battery, charged it up and didn't use it for like 4 months, other than regular battery drain from sitting around will anything happen to it? What happens to these things if they sit for long periods of time? I mean should you really use them every once in a while?

What is the best way to store Lithium Ion batteries?
Lithium-ion batteries can hold a charge for many months. It is best to store a lithium-ion battery with a partial or full charge. Occasionally, a lithium-ion battery with a very low charge is stored for a long period of time (many months) and its voltage slowly drops to below the level at which its built in safety mechanism allows it to be charged again. If the battery is going to be stored for several months it's a good idea to take it out and recharge it after a few months. Better yet would be to actually use the battery every few months and then leave it partially or fully charged.
Hope this helps?

This is a good deal, you get 2 extra spare batteries and a wall charger for less than $30. I bought this and what I do is keep an extra battery in my wallet to switch out if I need to.

I've been using my Seidio multi-function wall charger since Saturday. I already had the charger from my last phone so I only needed to buy the charger plate that is specific to the Thunderbolt's battery.
You can also get the cheap Chinese chargers (more compact) on eBay for about $5 and free shipping, which will take a couple of weeks, or from American resellers for around $25.
