    Wow it really sucks I just now went to use my spare battery I got on ebay and apparently it doesnt work with Froyo. I tested it out before upgrading to Froyo and didnt see any issues. Has anyone come up with a solution? I tried a battery app from the market but it kept reading 90% unless I plugged it in and then it would just say fully charged.

    Well, I bought a charger that came with two DX batteries so I can charge them via the wall charger. Sucks there is no way around this and its lame Motorola can block 3rd party companies from making money.

    I bought 2 batteries and a charger off of ebay for about $10. I have had no problem with them, with Froyo 2.2. The batteries charge up either in the phone or in the charger. Since buying them, however, I rarely use them. I bought an OEM exxtended battery for my Droid X. That along with the Ultimate Juice application, I get at least 2 days out of my phone.

    I wonder why you arent having the same issues, I bet we bought the same battery/charger on ebay.

    This is the one I bought. I got mine from this seller. Perhaps there are different non-oem batteries/chargers being sold on Ebay. In reading this seller's feedback, I didn't see any negative comments regarding this item, either.

    That may be true for some of them. Again, the ones I got from Ebay work just fine. The Battery Status application does show its voltage and temperature.

    Looks like from research by Scary Alein on my behalf if the battery does not have a micro chip that monitors things like temp and charging / discharging it won't work. I had two Chinese after market batteries that no longer work due to this issue. Seems BabyDoc got batteries that have the chip.
