Default Any Cases that fit the Droid Bionic + Extended Battery?

Wondering lol I need one but I have the extended battery.

BTW the droid bionic is EXTREMELY light to me, lighter than my droid x. I really needed the extended battery for it to actually feel like a durable phone lol. But the build quality f this phone is fantastic, so don't get me wrong.

Also, I played with it rooted + not rooted.

Rooting it speeds the read and write times for me, just saying!

It is the Motorola Shell/Holster combo. I have one as well and it works well to protect the sides and back of the phone.

I'd love to see a silicone back cover only made available for the ext. battery. Surprised more options weren't put out with launch - the launch was pushed back, surely they had to have known the specs with the ext. battery BEFORE the launch.

Keeping an eye on this thread.

Has anyone tried removing the extended battery cover to see if any of these cases will fit? I don't have a Bionic yet, but some cases with my Droid X and an extended battery didn't work, until I removed the battery cover. For example, the Body glove ONLY worked when the battery cover was removed. (I wasn't particularly worried about having no battery cover because the line hard plastic liner was going to be good enough to keep the battery in place.)

Those with the Outer Box who say it doesn't fit the Bionic with an extended battery, might want to report back their experience with the battery cover removed.

if you take the cover off the silicone cover fits, but leaves the back unprotected. not sure how i feel about that just yet..

Had my Bionic for 2 days. Had the soft rubbery silicone case (that just protects the back) and was using it the whole time. Really happy with it...extended battery arrived today lol, and of course the case doesn't fit. I hope they come out with the same darn case for extendeds because it was really awesome :L

Default I'd really love to find one of these too

After trying a couple of other cases for my X, I found the Amzer jelly case, which I loved. It's soft rubber and very thin, so it makes it unlikely that the phone will slip out of your hand, but absorbs the shock if you drop it. I sent them an e-mail asking if they had a case that would accommodate the extended battery and received a response today that they don't have one, but to check back later. I'm really hoping to find a soft, lightweight case like this soon, and I'd be grateful for suggestions for something similar if any of you find one. I'm not hard on my phone, so I don't need a rugged case like an OtterBox or any other sort of hard case or full cover, just a rubbery one that stretches around the sides and back.

I'm in the same boat. Got the Bionic today and the extended battery and the case I ordered doesn't fit. VzW said they only knew of the holster that would fit it, but they didn't have any in, so I couldn't have bought it even if I wanted one. I would definitely prefer a silicone based cover.

Thanks to BabyDoc, I have a temporary solution. After I posted my last message, I pulled the back off the phone and the silicone case I got from Verizon fits fairly well. That isn't ideal, but they went cheezy with the plastic back anyway. That's nuts with a phone that costs $300 with a two year contract. Maybe they did it for weight, but I suspect it was for cost.

Since this isn't a perfect fit, and I still prefer the jelly case even though this case looks nicer, I'm still going to be waiting.

There just don't seem to be many cases out at all yet - for any size battery. Kind of surprising, really. Maybe the case comapnies are having a hard time keeping up with so many variations so quickly. At least with the iPhone they've only got one size to match.

Just wait for China, they will be coming out with an extended battery TPU case I'm sure! They came out with it a few months ago on the TBolt and it's awesome!!

That's coming from a TPU case enthusiast, though.

Considering the number of views for this thread, it looks like there is a significant interest in extended battery cases. Personally I'm waiting for something like an Otterbox Defender or a Seidio Convert that fits the Droid Bionic with the extended battery.

I called Seidio and they don't seem to have any information about timing to release a case and holster. I think they have the best product on the market judging from my experience with the holster for my original Droid.

I picked up my new Bio last night with ext battery and silicone case.
As previously stated the case just falls short of wrapping the sides.
I sliced the silicone case with a sharp razor blade in two equal spots at the rear.
Right where the rear face starts to wrap for the sides of the phone, or the end of the internal waffle pattern.
The slice starts from the top just at or below the camera housing down to the speaker opening. Keep your razor right at the end of waffle pattern. The other side gets a little close to the hdmi/chrg port opening but if you use a nice sharp razor the silicone case should not tear unless severely abused.
Mine fits perfect now and is great for the time being, or at least until someone makes a cleaner fitting case.

That looks like the same case Verizon sold me - the Shell / Holster combo. Yes, works well with extended battery and me dropping my phone twice.

Default Extended Battery Case for Bionic

I just got the extended battery for the Droid Bionic but it would not fit the Otter Box Case. I played around with it and the only way i could get it to work is to leave the hard back of the otter box off and just put the silicone around to lock it to the top. It seems to work fine. Hope this will help. Hope they can come out with a real solution.

Edit: Nevermind. I took the plunge anyway and it isn't half bad! It'll do until an extended battery case comes out that I actually like (I really don't like the VZW case).

I have been using the Cellet Bergamo sleeve/case. It is a little tight with the extended battery but it fits better with a little breaking in. I dont like the big cases, just wanted something that would slide in and out of my pocket. It does have a removable clip that is nice. It gives me the Blackberry sleeve feel I was looking for. Its not ideal due to the tightnesss, but at least I'm not taking the battery cover off.

Yes that is the one i mentioned in a post above, it is a tight fit but i prefer it that way and since it has the removable belt clip i can use it on either my belt or inside a suit pocket when dressing up a little better. And i got it on ebay new for 12.99 instead of the 20 at their site. And now i see them on ebay for as little as $5 well worth it. I prefer the feel for the naked bionic and putting it right into the sleeve. For $5 you cant go wrong.

JeepinDoug or others,

I also have the same case that JeepinDoug shared that helpful picture with his modification.

My question for JeepinDoug or anyone else is to whether or not the Bionic, with the extended battery and that case with the modified razor cuts, will then fit into Verizon's standard car mount?

Right now without the extended battery the bionic in that unmodified case fits perfectly in the car mount. I want to buy the extended battery and make the razor cuts if and only if it still fits in the car mount (for my Jeep, btw!). Does it?

Thanks to JeepinDoug for the original idea and to anyone else that reads and responds.

Haven't tried in a car dock yet. But I put an extended battery on mine and it JUST fit nicely into a standard doc (insert removed). No room for an extended battery AND any kind of case as far as I can tell. I'll try my new car dock shortly

I didn't even know there was a removable insert on the home dockand I have the extended battery and had been using it without removing the insert all along and it fit fine as it was.

@earlyhike,

Thank you! I'm really curious as to what you find when you try to slip the cased and extended-battery-occupied droid into the verizon car dock. The verizon car dock does come with an insert, and with my bionic currently encased in the silicone case shown above it fits perfect -- but that's before I buy the extended battery and modify my case as pictured above.

Thanks to anyone that can test this for me!

Haven't tried in a car dock yet. But I put an extended battery on mine and it JUST fit nicely into a standard doc (insert removed). No room for an extended battery AND any kind of case as far as I can tell. I'll try my new car dock shortly

Nah that's the same one that's at VzW. TPU apparently will be releasing one later this month though. Here's the link to that info.

Hi,
I have a Bionic, the extended battery, and a modified case/cover (like the one pictured above in this thread). I have tried inserting the unit with the modified cover and extended battery into the car dock (WITHOUT the spacer), and it fits, but not very well. Sometimes the charger connection doesn't quite make contact, and you have to sort of cram it in there. I ended up just taking the cover off of the phone when mounting in the car dock (with the spacer reinserted). It is a hassle to have to remove/replace the cover every time I want to insert the unit into the car dock, but I have found it worth the effort since it ensures that the phone is properly seated in the dock. I suspect that we will run into the same problem with any cover, even the ones made for the extended battery, but I could be wrong about that.

Hope this helps.
Jason

I purchased the diztronic (formerly TPU) case from Amazon and it fits the extended battery perfect the matte backing allows for a nice non-slip surface and the front edges are glossy so it has a nice forward profile. The entire thing fits nicely in my car dock, extended battery + case. I recommend getting one.

And since the options are extremely limited for the Droid Bionic with the extended battery and the price is very low, I figured I'd give it a shot. $13 is very low risk as far as I'm concerned, and I am extremely happy with my purchase!!

Same here - in fact, if I take the insert out it's too big for the phone and it teeters on the usb connection.

That Cellet Bergamo sleeve is pretty nice, but too masculine for me. I miss my Sena sleeve.
