Will there be an extended battery available?

For the LG Esteem they released an extended battery that would replace the original and compensate for the awful battery life. Are there any known intentions of doing the same for this phone or are there any aftermarket batteries available for purchase that would achieve the same effect?

I really really hope so. The stock battery for this phone just doesn't cut it.

I asked LG and they said they had no plans for anything of the sort. However, a family member has a phone with a battery rated for the same 3.5 hours of talk, and it lasts about 2 hours of heavy use, or 8 hours of light use. It's enough that I'll end up buying it and just keeping a charger handy. I'm really hoping for a 3rd party to come out with something though. I don't know much about aftermarket batteries, but I'm sure there's got to be something out there in the next month or two.
