Accessories that fit DX with Motorola's Extended battery
Lets start a thread on what accessories will fit the DX with Motorola's Extended battery from VZW. I'll update as we go along.
Here is what I'm talking about for those who do not have the extended battery. It addeds about 1-2mm, about the thickness of a credit card (3rd pic)
Cases that will fit
-VZW's Dual Cover
-VZW's leather Holster
-Seidio Innocase Rugged Holster
-Outterbox Defender Series Case
-Seidio Innocase Surface
Docks that will fit

To the OP, I believe it does fit with the Motorola media Dock. Also I have found that these work:

There is a guy on another forum I visited that is making a case for this phone that is quite interesting, he says it supports the Droid X extended battery.
I am not sure if the company is called "Jaw Case" or if the actual product is called "Jaw Case". He hasn't released it however so its just vapor ware right now. I told him to pm me if he ever gets his case made so we'll wait n see.

I have tried just about all the cases and accessories out there and they all seem to work with the Moto extended battery. Mainly, you just have to steer clear of hard and non-flexible cases that are constructed out of plastic like most snap together two piece cases.
Maybe this thread would be more useful to list accessories and cases that DON'T work.

Don't worry about the Kraken, it definitely works with the MOTO extended bat.
These are the cases that I have used that fit and work with the Moto extended bat:
Seidio Active X
VZW Gloss Silicone
VZW Superior Dual
The Kraken and the Superior Dual are my favorites.Droid X 2.3.3 w/ Moto BH6X Bat, SanDisk 32G C2, Superior Dual Cover Case, Trident Kraken Case

It wasn't the Seidio Active, so I can't help with that.
I have the Seidio Active X, it is a limited edition Amazon exclusive. I can tell it wasn't designed for the Moto extended bat, but the case is soft and pliable silicone with a plastic X shaped exoskeleton. So everything fits rather well and puts no pressure on the screen.Droid X 2.3.3 w/ Moto BH6X Bat, SanDisk 32G C2, Superior Dual Cover Case, Trident Kraken Case

The active X is kind of nice, but I experienced heat build up with mine. I had to cut a square the size of the battery in the back of the silicone. The plastic exoskeleton covered it up and my X stopped over heating. The key is to cut round corners and leave about ¼ inch margin for the overlap of the plastic exoskeleton. I also experienced minor signal drop. The case is very protective, but the thick silicone offered too many cons.
Overall, I stopped using the Active X and I went with the Kraken. NO issues with the Kraken. For my everyday case I use the Superior Dual case that you can only buy through VZW either in their stores or over the phone… it isn’t even on their website. I have the product skew for it below in my signature. I suggest you take a look at it in their store. I also have a thread for it here in the forum.Droid X 2.3.3 w/ Moto BH6X Bat, SanDisk 32G C2, Superior Dual Cover Case, Trident Kraken Case
