    Seidio Case with Holster

    QCell
    Better protection than the Hyperion but only 2 color options. But, full coverage screen protectors will get lift with this case. It'll provide better protection from drops than the Hyperion.

    Hyperion Honey Comb
    Has the most color options but the volume and power buttons are very hard to push. I wouldn't recommend it for protection either, since its very very very thin.

    What does the honeycomb back case feel like?

    Cheap, thin, slippery. Not worth the money. The seidio back covers and cases fit on the Hyperion 4200, Anker 4400, and QCell 4200. If you want to buy just the back cover without the battery from seidio you have to call customer service and order it.

    I don't think I will be a power user. I am going to by a couple of batteries and see what that gets me. I read your posts on the other side and feel you are an expert. Can you trust the batteries on eBay? Some of the sellers do have good reviews. How high can I go in a regular size battery. Some go as high as 2900. I was thinking of getting 2-3 of these, but I don't want to screw this up. Should I stick the names above and Samsung brands or just skip eBay and go Amazon, or Andriod Central.

    Do not buy anything over 2500mAH that says the battery is the same size. It is impossible to fit all the cells inside the battery and keep the original size. Even the 2500mAH batteries are "iffy". There have been some threads showing underneath the sticker the supposed "2900mAH" batteries are in fact 2100mAH or 1450mAH just relabeled as 2900. The largest original sized battery I would trust is 2400mAH and even thats pushing it. I would only buy a tested branded battery with a size higher than 2100mAH. You might get lucky with the 2500mAH batteries on eBay though. One more thing, DO NOT BUY THE GOLD BATTERIES. I tested them and they are weaker than the OEM batteries.

    Thank you for the help. Is there a double sided battery charger out there? I want a charger that has spots for 2 batteries that charge simultaneously.

    I've said this before but, I don't understand why they don't make an extended battery where the battery and battery cover are all one piece and all part of the battery. That way you could actually make a bigger mah battery and keep the slim profile of the phone.

    Anybody know of a decent case that would work with the Mugen Power 4600mAh Extended Battery?
