    Default Any good Shell/Holster for extended battery?

    Finally caved in and got the extended battery, which is a great buy at Verizon corporate stores right now at $24.99. But now my shell holster combo I had doesn't fit, and I was wondering if their was an inexpensive option out there that works great????

    VZW has a shell holster combo that is made for the extended battery. Also, I really like the Seidio cases that are made for the extended battery.

    I have been looking at the seidio cases but they cover the original kickstand and I listen to Sirius alot at work and it sounds so much better open. I will check out verizon's website

    I haven't bought one yet, but I am probably getting a Trident Electra. It comes with an aftermarket extended battery, and its back replaces the HTC back do you can use the original kickstand. Though they list for $70, I see them on Amazon recently for $40.

    Loving my Seidio Active case. It doesn't add much bulk at all for the protection, and the case/holster build quality is just top-notch.

    PS: I just noticed your mention of covering the kickstand. Maybe you'd notice a difference, but I sure don't. However, you can leave the "skeleton" off and the original kickstand is fully exposed. The Active comes as two parts - a soft rubbery cover, and a hard "skeleton" that fits over it. The skeleton cover is NOT required to use the phone with the holster.

    Several people have mentioned just Dremel-ing or otherwise removing the plastic kickstand from the skeleton, and looking at the unit it seems like that would be pretty easy. But I like the plastic kickstand now that I'm used to it, so I'll save that option for when it inevitably breaks.

    I use the Sedio case and really like it. I use the kickstand all the time to listen to pandora or google music and it doesnt make it quiet at all.

    I just looked at the Trident case I may spend the money and pick up one of those instead.
