    I found this over at XDA

    Galaxy Nexus Extended battery 2100 mah
    Galaxy Nexus Extended Battery on Skyrocket? - xda-developers

    So I decided to give it a try, (for $25 + tax not a bad deal for an extra 250 mah - and I was just planning on buying a regular spare battery anyway). FYI, you have to get the Verizon version as the GSM version doesn't work.

    Well I went on lunch and picked this up.

    Charging right now, but it fit into my spare battery charger on my RND dock (with some cramming).

    It is easy to get in, but a little difficult getting out. I might take the dock home tonight and work on it with the dremel, but not sure yet. Already had to dremel the actual holder a bit to allow me to dock with a case on.

    Pics of charging. Once I get it charged, I'll stick it in the phone (there are pics on the link above showing how it fits in our phone)

    Yeah they kept asking me for my phone #, I basically told them I don't have VW, and I don't feel like changing over.

    Well I ran a test on it, from 100% charge to basically phone giving up and shutting down. I've already previous to this performed 1 full cycle charge(charge to 100% and deplete), so this is the second go.

    I turned EVERYTHING on, BT, GPS, Screen to 100%.

    Then I loaded up a game called 3D Mini Golf (game has a memory leak and will keep your CPU running at 50% or higher even when phone is idle) and minimized it(basically left it running in the background).

    Then I started streaming on LTE via the HBO Go app, Harry Potter Deathly Hollows. Once that was done, I did YouTube streaming along with a bunch of speed test via the speedtest.net app.

    Started all this at approximately 5pm yesterday. After all was said and done, I had used up approximately 1.5 GB of data. The phone gave up at approximately 11:30pm last night.

    Battery lasted 6.5 hours under HEAVY intensive use.

    I've since fully charged it, and now and doing a real world test(how I would normally use it) and we shall see.

    Phone came off the charger at 1am cst.

    Ok after using the battery the way a normal user might, I have to say i'm impressed .

    This is what I managed





    The battery was at 4% when I took those screen shots.
