    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!

    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.

    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

    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.
