Yes, the new Sedio case does fit with the extended battery cover.

Can you confirm 100% that the Innocase Surface fits over the phone with the extended battery and extended battery cover on? And it's not ridiculously tight or anything? The pictures on the site do not look at all like there is extra room for the extended door, it looks flush with the phone like the Rocketfish case, so..
Also, I did not see it say that it will fit with the extended door on the product page...

With so many people saying the old back cover fits on fine, I wonder if there is some variance in how tightly different people's old back covers are fitting on the phone with the new battery. With how insanely hard mine is to put on, I can't imagine anyone would say it fits alright. There's no way I would consider leaving the old back cover on mine because of how tight it is.

Default Droid X Extended Battery Inquiry

Hi,

I was wondering if people with the extended battery can tell me:

1. How does it compare with the original battery? How much longer does it last?
2. Can I use the original back cover with the new battery?

I do not have one so I cannot answer 1, but from what I have read, you technically can use the original cover, but it puts a lot more pressure on the battery compartment and can lead to issues that wouldn't happen with the extended cover. So yes, its possible, but you probably do not want to do it.

Default Extended Life DX Battery Availability?

Has one hit the market yet? I saw a link somewhere to a site but they were listed as "under development". I'd like to get one that has a somewhat extended life but fits in the same form factor. I saw one on the link that I think showed more than double the rating but was a larger form factor. It was also listed as under development.

The one from Verizon is only 1mm thicker.

Batteries can only give a certain capacity for a certain size. Seido's 1750 battery has been proven to be only about 1500, which is about right given its size.

If you want a bigger battery, it's going to be physically larger.

I'm interested too, especially from the size standpoint. With the new cover, does it stick out more? I haven't seen anything official about how much thickness if any the moto extended battery (BH6X) adds. Just curious if my case is going to fit with this.

1. My estimate is an extra 2-3 hours of use per day
2. While it does fit, it puts extra pressure against the touch screen and may cause problems down the road.

The only confirmed retailers releasing one are Sedieo (as mentioned above) and Verizon (which if you check the accessories thread, is available to purchase).

I have the Motorola extended battery through Verizon and it is awesome. My original VZW case and holster fit right over the top of the slightly larger battery.

You think my Body Glove case will still work? I'm guessing not which sucks because I really, really like that case. Are there any similar protective cases out yet to accommodate the larger battery?

I just checked on the extended battery and Verizon details have it listed as a 1840mAh. Has something changed or is this a typo on their site?

The battery is 1930 mah. I'm gonna try to run it down overnight and fully recharge it to break it in, then see how long it lasts. Fits in the car dock no problem which a lot of people anticipated.

The extended battery lasts me aprx 25% longer. It does fit the Sedio Innocase surface (with the new battery cover) just fine. I don't like how it fits the verizon case holster, way too tight for me.

If I use the VZW case & holster is it necessary to use the battery cover at all since the case provides adequate protection.

I use my X with pretty decent use. Lots of txting, little surfing the web and my new addiction of playing the same old NES games that I loved when I was a kid. With the stock battery I would get roughly 9 and a half hours of use out of the battery. Now I get roughly 15-16 hours of solid use. Keep in mind that I work from home and my house doesn't get great cell reception. If I lived just a few blocks over I would think I could get 18-19 hrs out of the extended battery.

Received my extended battery Tuesday (8-17-2010). Charged it up Tuesday night. Had a full day usage with the battery on Wednesday. What can I say? Couldn't be happier. I was getting really good battery life with the battery that came in the X but this battery is superb.

Right now I'm at 18 hours unplugged, with 50% left. Whomever designed the battery and new door did a great job. The extra thickness (if you can call it that) is hardly noticeable. The new supplied battery door when fitted to the phone is just a hair thicker than the original door. With my corporate discount it was the best $35 I've spent this year.

How is the Seidio Surface's fit with the new door though? Snug? Normal?

If not too snug, how is this possible when the case wasn't made for the extended door? Wouldn't it be too loose then with the regular door?

Any pics of the Surface on the phone with the new door?

I have the same concerns. Just ordered the extended battery. I like the Seidio case design and there aren't a lot of cases out there that protect both the phone and the screen (face-in holster protected the screen). I e-mailed Seidio and they said that the OEM battery woudl not fit, but I don't know if that is because they don't really know for the Droid X, or they want to sell me their extended battery. But like may people said wit the orig battery door fitting but putting pressure on the screen, I wouldn't want the Seidio case to put too much pressure on the device with the extended battery door.

I am using the Extended Battery with no cover at all, with my Verizon Case & Holster. Works just fine. I then take the Case off each night to put it in my Desktop charger. Don't bother to put the battery cover on to charge.

I am having the same issue. With what I believe is pretty consistent usage, some days I get great battery life and other days it is horrible. I don't know if the battery gauge is "off", or if there is some application that "hangs" and runs down the battery.

Just bought the extended battery at local VW store and the $5 snap on case I bought on eBay (Rocketfish knock-off) still fits nicely with the new battery cover.

I picked up mine from a corporate store this evening for the full price less my 25% discount. The original battery cover fits over the extended battery just fine and requires very little additional effort to put in place. The extended door works fine with the Amzer case I bought a few weeks ago, so you should not have any problems with your existing cases. Now to see how long the battery makes it tomorrow.

second that, just got my battery at the same price.... i didnt realize just how small 1mm is... and i'm seriously shocked that motorola didn't design it in some kind of way to fit the original cover ... the orginal cover fits fine and i like the idea of knowing my battery will not become lose... and when you put on the original case you can really tell that there isn't an overstrain or that much squeeze on the phone.... there's no more strain than on the phone than a tight case for the phone... couldn't be happier... now time to see the battery life results....

Don't have the corp discount, but could ask my sister to order for me, but not worth the extra effort IMO.

BTW, ordered the extended X battery from Verizon and it's on BO.

My original cover actually went on pretty east, almost the same as with the original battery in, and the cover that came with the extended battery was actually loose. It's ok though I'd prefer to use the old cover anyway. Anyone else have this issue?

Ordered last night (thanks for the discount code), received a Email this morning that it's back-ordered. Called and asked for a ship by estimate and was told Motorola hasn't provided that information.
Oh well, no rush I guess since the og battery lasts a decent amount of time.

So I have the battery, but I'm hesitant to use it at the moment because I'm worried as to what to do with the original battery. Should I just let the battery sit? Is it going to make it lose charge? How are you guys charging both batteries?

It's going to lose a charge and will need to be periodically charged. I'd consider just using it for a few days, charge it up and set it aside in a cool place.

I don't want to be swapping batteries all the time. It's too much work to take off my case. I thought I'd sell it to one of the guys at work. It's a good battery, only about a month old and I can get over 3 days on a charge with light use. Besides, they just got their phones so I doubt they can get half a day on a charge 'cause they can't keep their paws off it.

Default New Cover Tight

Using extended battery and the new back cover. The cover is VERY tight and hard to get off. I am considering trying the old original cover or not using a cover and just using my AMZER crystal hard case.

I have had the new extended battery for several days and the difference over the standard battery is tremendous.

I'm using the new battery cover which, to me, does not noticeably add to the size of the phone at all. I can't imagine any case that fit the X with the old battery door not fitting with this new door.

The new door fits exactly the same as the old one on my X. It slides on and off just as easily.

Would highly recommend folks NOT go w/o a cover at all. Bad idea.
