    So I'm looking around the web for a good belt case / holster for my new Droid, but all the ones I've seen have a magnetic flap to keep them closed. While this is great, wont this confuse the Droid into thinking it's docked (and thus drain the battery)?

    I have been using one with a magnet from my blackberry bold and no issues. Why would it affect battery?

    because the droid uses magnets to detect when it's docked. if it's docked, it wont sleep and thus will consume more power.

    but if magnetic cases aren't causing this to happen then i may buy one, but it'll have to be from a B&M store as i don't feel like waiting for something to arrive only to find i may have to return it.

    thanks for the info tho. anyone else experienced this with magnetic cases?

    I have the snap on case from Body Glove. It's OK, but I don't like the fact that the face of the phone faces outward.
