    Droid 1/2 Extended Battery

    I was reading on DF about Verizon releasing an extended battery for the DX and I decided to look and see if they had one for the release of the Droid 2. Well on the VZW website, they have and 1880mah extended battery listed for the D2. Here is the link:

    Being that the D1 and D2 are the same and share the same original battery BP6x, I figure this battery will work for the D1. On the DX forum, people who have purchased the extended battery said there was only a 1mm size difference and they were able to fit the original back on the DX with this extended battery. I wonder if the same is possible for the D2 battery on the D1. I am going to order it and give it a try. Anyone else interested?

    So I just ordered the BP7X extended battery for the Droid 2 to use with my Droid 1. It was 2nd day free shipping so I will most likely receive it on Monday. I will report my findings as soon as I receive it. If it works with the D1, this will be a great find. 400mah more battery should definitely make it at least 12-16hrs a day.

    I was thinking about the over sized battery, until I read through these reviews. I hope the batteries your referencing is different or corrected. I wouldn't want to have to power the phone down in order to recognize the second half of the charge. At least that's how I understand how this particular battery works.

    Maybe I'm way off and your writing about a completely different bat. Please keep us posted about your experience. Till then I'm going to continue using the best battery saving action I've found ... shutting the display off the second I'm not looking directly at it. #ridesafe

    The first time I tried your link last night it didn't work 4 some reason. It worked fine this morning after I just posted my reply ... my bad. Now I'm very interested seeing its available thru Verizon from big M. I doubt it will suffer the same issues associated with the battery in my last post. I hope it works awesome 4 you in the D1. I wonder if the extended cover will come in only blue, dose not matter I have a can of Harley-Davison vivid black spray paint....

    Interesting thread, this "extended" battery might solve alot of issues, looking for feedback ASAP on not only the battery life but also if it requires a new door or not (also color of the door).

    well i did their little compatibility check and it said it wasnt compatible.
    though the people who did the teardown of the droid 2 said

    "The battery on the DROID 2 is identical to the original DROID."

    also "However, the DROID 2 somehow is capable of squeezing more life out of it's battery with a 49% improvement on battery life compared to the older model."

    im going out on a limb and going to try it even though it says its not compatible.

    This battery should be arriving on Monday. I will post pictures as soon as possible. I was in the Verizon store yesterday and they had them in stock, I just didn't feel like waiting for a sales rep. My only concern is if the Droid 1 will read the battery life correctly.
