    Question Swapping between battery types?

    I've noticed that my stock battery doesnt seem to hold as much charge as it did when i got it 5 months back, and tbh it was never satisfactory to me to begin with. I finally got around to ordering the official samsung 2000mah extended battery and back cover. I also got an official dock/external battery charger thing. My plan is to use the extended battery and keep the stock one on standby for days of heavy usage (or in areas with poor reception) in the charger.

    Since ordering the ext batt, i've thought of 2 questions i'd like to ask someone with experience with this:

    -Does the phone report accurate battery life % on both batteries? Like, does switching between the 2 different capacities mess up the calibration? Does it need a couple full charges/discharges before the reported %'s are accurate?

    -If i take the extended battery out and put the thinner, stock battery in, and then put the extended backplate on, will the battery come loose in the phone from the cover not being on it as tight? I would like to avoid having to travel with a second battery AND backplate.

    Thanks

    this is the same thing i do... i keep a fully charged battery in my pocket... for when it's time to swap batteries... i got two stock batteries and a samsung 2100 mah battery... the phone will report the battery percentage just fine... it's not going to need calibration..

    and...i haven't had a problem with the stock battery coming loose...when using the cover for the extended battery with a stock battery...

    cool, thanks. can't wait for my extended battery to finally get here from korea, taking forever!

    and i think i remember reading somewhere that someone was using the stock backplate with an extended battery... not sure if that's true or not, or if maybe the person had a case over the phone to hold it all together anyway. but im kinda curious if thats true (doubt it, or they wouldnt bother selling a different type)

    I have a Qmadix case for my Gnex and the extended battery back plate will not work in the holster. However the back plate for the standard battery fits a bit tight with the extended battery and allows me to use the holster just fine. -_-
