    Anyway was so pumped to get extended battery today... however, I will be taking it back....

    Reason: The bulk it adds and thickness to the phone makes it impossible to use with any accessory. So if you want the car dock or soon to be out home multimedia dock, do not waste your money on the extended battery. The 2 docks were not designed for it and cannot be modified to use with them...
    Lastly, all cases until some third party designs something will not work either....

    The Question: Why make accessories that are oem and incompatible with one another... thanks verizon and htc for ruining my extended battery party in a world where all accessories work together...

    I ask the same thing. I can't wait for universal everything! Conform now! Lol. Seriously though, I'm so frustrated with buying new accessories for every phone AND most, if not all, of them not working with extended batteries.

    Especially these days. The manufacturers know battery life sucks. That's half the reason new models take so long to get released! They know a lot of folks are gonna upgrade the battery, and yet, form before function...

    Where? I see it can charge the extended battery, but I haven't seen anything saying it can fit the size of the phone with the extended battery.

    I'm thinking of just getting the 1600 ma battery. It is the same size as the original battery but with additional juice.

    Will the 1600 fit the existing cover... is it an OEM or aftermarket?

    I agree on the extended... looked at one this morning at a Verizon store was there replacing a locked 4g card. It may provide the needed batter life but it is just too large for me.

    I'm using the 2750 battery and my old leather holster case that I picked up from Verizon when I bought my DX. The fit is really snug but it does fit.

    But, I do agree on the size, it is really huge and I'm not really liking the added size. I'm testing the difference in battery live between the standard battery and the 2750 and if I can get by with the standard one or with the 1600 Seidio I might be returning the 2750. It really is pretty massive.
