Sweet I was just thinking the other day if moto would do like usual and offer a more expensive higher cap battery and door.
i wonder how it looks? is it thick?
wonder if any cases will fit....
I bet some will with a minor mod. But I bet new cases will be coming soon, but only from moto.
Just ordered mine, and will have it thursday cant wait to see what this looks like and if i notice a difference in battery life!
It's only 1840 and requires an extra backdoor?
Why can't they pull a Seidio and at least keep the thickness the same...or go 2150 like the DInc
Just ordered mine as well! Yay!!!!
The deal breaker for me will be if it fits in the car dock
There are laws of physics at work here. Seido's 1750 battery has been debunked a couple times as only being really around 1500 mAh. That's why it fits in the stock battery compartment.
It's kind of like saying, "I have a gallon container of water. Why can't a company put a gallon and a half in there?"
FWIW, someone who just received the Moto battery says it's actually 1880mAh, and Seidio exaggerates their batteries' capacities. I would expect the Seidio to be no better than stock.
I want pictures of how it looks before I take the plunge.
Does anyone know if there is an external battery charger for either the stock or extended batteries? I'm getting the extra larger battery, but I want the ability to charge one of them outside of the phone. Otherwise, my phone will be tied up twice as long just charging both batteries if I alternate between them.
Here's a link to a couple photos................
VZW 1840mAh Extended Battery Pics
It is shown as 1840 mAh, including the Verizon Wireless website.
Yeah, I am looking for this as well,
Having an extra battery or 2 helps a lot, but not having a method to charge it other than the phone makes it a bit difficult.
Any report on life difference before taking the plunge as well? Don't mind the bulk that much...just how much different life you get OTB.
Mine is coming today! I'll test it out this weekend and will let you know
This is shown everywhere as 1840MAh, evn on the Verizon Wireless website....but you are in fact correct. The battery sold by Verizon is an original Motorola issue extended battery at 1880 mAh.
That is 25.3333% increase of mAh.
It comes with a new battery cover. It adds the slightest bit of thickness to it, you really cannot notice it. The phone still fits in the Motorola desk dock and Motorola car mount. It also fits fine in the silicone cover sold by Verizon.
The one strange thing with this batterery is that the box it came in states that it is a 1930 mAh battery. That is just kinda nuts.
The extended battery is rated as 1880 min, and 1930 typical.
The regular battery is rated as 1500 min, and 1540 typical.
I just received the extended battery, and it will fit with the standard door with a little bit of effort.
Here are some pictures
