I bought the BH6X from my local Verizon store today rather than some on-line source or e-bay, just to be safe. I got the corporate discount, so paid $37.50. 1930 mAh.

I have the Incipio Silicrilic case and wanted to make sure it would still work with the extended battery and extended battery case. No problemo.....

I got out my trusty dial caliper and measured each:
BH5X = 0.188"
BH6X = 0.228"

That translates to 1/25".

Below are some photos.

Just got the same battery today. Can belive that it is almost the same size as the normal one. Glad to see that it didn't make the phone super huge.
