    Do the Razr (and the Razr Max) have removable batteries and an available portable charging cradle?

    Thanks!

    No.
    And if you mean "a portable charging cradle to charge those batteries". No.

    Ok, to be technical the battery IS removable. Once. You can most certainly remove it. You can't put it back in again after you do.

    Thank you. So the advantage of the Razrs over the Droid 4 would be just they are thinner?

    Pretty much, the Razr also has a bigger and better screen, and the Razr Maxx has about twice the battery capacity, which should be enough to get almost anybody through a day's use. The Droid 4 has a physical keyboard.

    The battery is fixed into the phone, including screws and adhesive tape. Once you dismantle the phone and remove the battery you need to resemble the phone with tape. The upshot is after you disassemble it you need more parts to reassemble it. It's also time consuming, since you have to pry the back cover off and unscrew/untape the battery and put it back to together. I believe there are a couple ribbon cables that are very fragile and and easily broken. You absolutely don't want to do this more than you have to.
