I picked up the Xpal iPhone case/battery on Woot when they had it for $39. I picked up a dock extender cable on ebay so now I don't have to take my phone out of it's case to top off the battery, I just plug one end into the battery pack and one into the phone. It's awkward but works. Nice to have in the bottom of my bag for emergencies. That iPhone 4-in-1 case/dual sim one looks pretty cool too.

Not only would you not get reception, but even if you were on some miraculous 3g connection that jebus was wi-fi'ing to you, over the pacific ocean, and browsing the whole time, there's no way that pack would get you half way....
I assume it was sarcasm, trolling, or idiocy.
If you want a long travel option, buy a high capacity external battery. There are no cases (battery inclusive) that can do anything similar.
If there were a decent case, that allowed the screen to face in, had the protection of the otterbox defender, and included a boosted battery, at a reasonable price (under $80 US), I'd buy it in a heartbeat, and match it up with a 5400mah+ external.
Sadly, that case doesn't exist, but externals do. I'll be matching up the otter with the i-up, and call it a day. At least that combo will allow me to charge bluetooth off the external as well, and it will hold a far larger charge....
Why the companies, that make battery pack cases, have the screen face out, and only double the basic capacity anyways, is beyond me....
/recently swapped from a blackberry, where accessories (including swappable batteries that cost $10 or less each) made more sense
//i like my new 3gs, but the accessory market needs work, and is probably forced in some ways, by Apple, to be limited ($80 to swap a battery out, when the iphone is known for poor battery life, and has no ability to do it on the fly, without breaking warranty, is a pure slap in the face.... it's absolutely an insult, and no other company could get away with it these days)
///jailbroke my 2nd day... f$$k apple's no-battery-swap ability... their app store won't get my money until they even the field up, and don't force people to JB/UL and pay for their internal insurance

I dont like any of these cases- it makes the iPhone bulky, it's expensive, and if I'm gonna plunk down money for an extended battery... I want powah!!! For the most part, I can make it through a work day on a single charge, so I've been on the fence for awhile now, but the times that I do run out, it is infuriating.
I'd go with a Just Mobile Gum Pro ($60) or Plus (prettier, but $70... just got reviewed this month, hard to find, and only one place sells it for $105).

Basically it's a battery pack that you attach to it separately with the charger cord. It's a universal charger, which makes it nice. It's not an elegant solution, but it's got 4400mAh of power. It's a different alternative to the battery+case solution. It's the best value for power.

I'm looking too for a battery extender and I found this: Satechi iCel Extended Battery Pack and Charger for iPhone 3G & 3Gs, iPod, Flip & Vado Camcorders
$59.99 reg. price $69.99
Also, there is this other one:
IMP500 3G 3Gs iPhone iTouch external battery Free AC charger
List Price: $79.95
Our Price: $58.95
Sale Price: $45.95
Mainly, I want something that I will be able to use on the golf course while my iPhone serves as a GPS with the Golfshot app. Considering what I've read, I'ill be lucky if I can complete an 18 holes round with one charge.
So, what do you think?

If you are like me and use apps a lot during the day, then I think this or any other battery pack are a must to have in your inventory. Don't forget it is also a protective CASE!
PS-on the reception issue, I have had absolutely ZERO issues with this. I have the 3GS too, BTW.
