    The Motorola extended battery is 1950 mah, and it barely adds any thickness to the D3.

    That, has little to nothing to do with my original question.

    I am well aware of the motorola battery.

    I ordered one off Amazon earlier this week - it should arrive today or tomorrow. Assuming it arrives as planned, I can give you an update early next week.

    I have one on the way as well. Shipped today but who knows how long it will take to get to Hawaii. I'll report in when it arrives.

    Ive also ordered an 1800, but I have a 1500 that came off ebay with a charger for under $15. It actually holds up longer than my factory battery, what a pleasant surprise.

    Today I received the 1800 that I ordered from Amazon. Unfortunately it isn't as advertised. It is quite a bit thicker than the original battery, in fact, the back of the phone won't even stay on all the way. I'll be returning it to the seller.

    Could you use a hardcase, and just leave the factory back off ? Phone might even run cooler that way. Not a perfect suggestion, I know, but worth a shot. But I get by just fine with two 1500's, and I use my personal phone at work too, and use a lot of texts (6000+).

    Jeeper, thanks for the suggestion. Your idea would probably work.

    I've now noticed that it has the BF-6X P/N cross-referenced on it's label, not -5x, so it is a replacement for the Motorola extended battery not the original D3 battery. I feel like the Amazon listing is a little misleading in that respect. I decided to go ahead and order the Motorola BF-6X that comes with the larger battery door. $40 on Amazon including shipping. Heck, I may even keep the 1800mAh one as a back-up - kind of a waste of money but I love my D3 but I'm tired of worrying about battery life! Now if my random reboots would just stop... Thanks again for the suggestion.
