Can you suggest a better S2 battery?

I am quite pleased with my brand new S2 (Virgin). This is my first smartphone and my only disappointment is battery life which does not last very long. Where could I buy a better battery? I would prefer a battery that uses the stock cover. A slightly thicker cover would be OK too.

Also, could you suggest a car mount holder?

I purchased batteries from amazon. The brand is "Anker" and has slightly more juice than stock. Normally, I unplug @ 6:30am, and don't have to charge until 9pm. but with stock, I would need to find a charger by 5pm. Of course your phone has different apps and such, so YMMV.

They were not pricey at all. 25$ for 2 w/ a external charger.

I was thinking about the stock samsung extended battery, but like you, I did not want to have a bulging back.
