Anyone tried all three BIG batteries?
Just wondered if anyone here has had the 2600, 2150 AND 3500 batteries at the same time? I was curious if the 2150 or 3500 battery cover will work with the 2600 battery.

Something tells me 'no' to both of your questions. I know the 2150 battery cover doesn't work with the 3500, and something tells me that probably the battery cover for the 2600(never seen it got a link?) will need to be larger than the 2150 cover but possibly smaller than the 3500.
Also I highly doubt anyone has tried all three. Normally once someone gets the 2150 or the 3500 they are pretty happy and stay where they are. I know a few on here have done both the 2150 and the 3500. So maybe someone has tried the 2600 too.
I would bet the battery cover for the Seidio 3500 battery would work. Might just need at most a thin shim between the 2600 battery and inside of 3500 cover.
I have the 2600 battery and it is great but it takes a long time to charge back up, even in my external charger. I have determined that I want to charge my batteries via the external charger from now on. Two reasons.... one, it will be less wear n tear on the charge port of the phone. Second, it eliminates the need to bump charge.
Since I am currently at 37 hours on this 2600 battery and setting at 39%, I think it will work out great to just swap batteries every other day thru the week. Problem is I only have the one 2600 battery. I could easy pick up another 2600 from E Bay, but I am none too thrilled about the form of the cover that come with it. Makes the phone look like a brick. Although the flat side is nice for holding the phone up for watching movies. LOL
But there are no cases that can even be modded to work with this brick cover. The 3500 cover allows for modding. The back hump could be cut out of the silicone case I got from VZW. With it on, at least there is protection for the perimeter and front face.

I have both the 2150 and 3500... 2150 cover will not work with 3500, 3500 works with the 2150. A shim could be put in there with no harm, but the 2150 fits very securely due to the red tape they put around it to decorate it. The 3500 and most other 3rd party batteries don't have the red tape, so the batteries jiggle a little...
