    I just ordered 2 of them, my brother has a Optimus S, that was my first ever ebay purchase too.

    "Delivery: Estimated between Thu. Sep. 22 and Wed. Oct. 5"

    That is a long wait.

    Will someone take a picture on the phone with this cover to show what it looks like. Does the cone around the camera show up?

    Just got the 3000mAh battery in the mail. What are the reccomendations on first use. It came at like 90% charged, should I charge it first above 100% and then let drain all the way down? Also when do I recallibrate the batt stats, at 100% or @ 0%. ?

    I've taken many pictures with this, the cone is shaped in such a way that it doesn't show up in photos. I've attached a photo I took just last weekend with the extended battery in.

    Use the battery first but try not to drain it lower than 5% then charge it to 100% and leave it plugged in for about 1 more hour. Then re-calibrate the battery by wiping the battery history/stats. If ur running froyo it is easy at this point bc u can leave the phone off and plugged in to let it charge. When the charging animation stops cycling the battery should now be full and again wipe battery. Reboot and unplug the phone use it as normal. Most people will say to get a proper calibration u have to drain the battery till the phone dies. I don't suggest this bc it is possible that it will damage the battery. I try to drain it to 1% before plugging it in for calibration but for normal use I don't let it drop below 5% before charging. Lithium-Ion cells don't like to be fully discharged. I think some one in this thread posted about how it messed up his. After the first battery wipe my phone charged for another 2 hours.

    ZOMG this thing is huge. that's OK, though, because it'll be worth it. I like the little bit of added weight, though I'm not sure about the thickness. I'll get used it though. Especially if it'll let me go 3-4 days on a charge.

    Just got the 3600mAh from eBay as well. Anyone found a good alternative case that actually fits onto the phone?? would be quite difficult to find for sure xD

    I've been using this battery for a few weeks now, and just wanted to chime in.

    I LOVE IT! I actually like the thicker feel and more weight.

    I usually pull about 3 days use, but that is pretty heavy usage no doubt.

    I have been using this battery for a week now. I am pulling 1 to 1.5 days out of it, but I am also always on bluetooth for my bluetooth headphones and pocketcast and on wifi about 4 hours a day. That old battery would only a half day doing that.

    After reading all of your helpful replies and seeing pictures and whatnot, I ordered myself one of these. the coupon in the first post still works too. I was able to get the battery and the tracking number for less then the retail price!

    I've got the battery and am testing it.. am using Green power app on a decrappified stock ROM with xionia.

    Will report back (if my mind isnt fried) after testing it for a week or so. Glad I found this thread! thanx for the info. I like the weight and size.. I have HUGE hands so it feels a lot better in my paw now.

    The back case is nice, camera hole doesn't interfere and it *does* seem to help the audio some kinda does channel the sound out a bit..

    Thanks again.

    Seems pretty cool that this change to the larger battery not only extends the time between charges but also appears to improve the camera and the sound. Other than the fact that there probably won't be any cases or skins (for those that want such things) that will fit this new configuration, there don't seem to be many downsides.

    I'm sure we might be able to find someone who is willing to custom make the cases. lol

    Any suggestions for who might be willing to do this? Are you volunteering?

    A nice leather pouch might do the trick as opposed to an actual fitted case. I am using a Krusell leather pouch, large size, for my Rumor Touch and I am very pleased with it: 95216-C5, Krusell LUNA Pouch, Blue $16.00, Best Cell Phone Accessories I just carry it in my pocket. I have never dropped the phone so don't know what sort of protection it would provide but the pouch is very well made and I have no scratches on the phone and it keeps the dust and lint off of the phone, too. If we can get the exact dimensions of the LG Optimus with the larger battery something like that pouch might work.

    Of course, I don't even have the stock phone yet so this is all speculation on my part.

    haha sadly no, I'm a little poor right now so I have no money to even create a prototype, except out of cardboard and packaging tape (which there's nothing wrong with). I do however know that on etsy.com, they used to have a section called alchemy, where you could request a custom made item (I had someone make me MINI Cooper slippers). Sadly it doesn't exist anymore as Etsy is working and "making it better," but there's a team on there that does custom orders. CUSTOM ORDER CORNER-The New Alchemy - Etsy Teams

    If I had money to invest in some materials to create a prototype, then I'd totally try to create one.

    Yeah, money is definitely very tight right now. I am unemployed so I know what you are going through. I can't afford to buy my Optimus V so am just doing lots of research so that by the time I can afford it I will know exactly what I need in terms of accessories, apps, widgets, ROMs, etc.

    I would love to get one of these cell phone sleeves, actually: Leather covers for cell phones I have one of their covers for my Kindle eBook reader and it is wonderful. They are pricey but the workmanship is excellent and they are beautiful. Not sure if it would fit the Optimus with an extended battery, but it would definitely fit a "regular" Optimus.

    Back on topic - any new info/insight about these extended batteries from those of you who have had them for a while?

    I would be willing to invest in the R&D for a hard type case that would make the keyboard & phone into a side flip type. Not really needing the protection but more for the case to hold to two together and allow for a hinge so it can close with the keyboard buttons against the screen. Another leather type case to slide it into would be nice.

    I ordered mine, got the email 2 days ago (Sept 14) that mine was shipped, also got the tracking number on it, but according to them it should arrive anytime between Sept 28th and Oct12th. Hopefully it arrives before October 4th, I'm going on a long trip that day and it could definitely come in handy

    So something to turn it into basically like a mini laptop? I don't see that being all that hard to do, I just have no experience working with plastics, and have no machinery to create such prototype. I could easily create a soft case however.

    I found 2 generic nylon belt clip type with velcro closure type cases at a Kwik- stop that fit the phone both with the standard battery and the extended battery due to elasic sides. they were 11 bux each. One went on my tool belt for work the other is my off work case.. cant beat it.

    In 10 hrs i have used 15% battery and have made multiple phone calls, prolly 60+ texts and some light webs surfing. I'm using green power and flashed the latest PRL's for sprint. looks like this battery rawks.. just flat rawks.
