    Another OtterBox Case Mod

    tp76 you are a pioneer and my inspiration for my attempt at modding my case. I took a slightly different approach but have the same results. Wasn't very comforable with the amount of plastic that your design had to take out of the Otterbox (especially around the HDMI and Micro USB flap). I took the standard battery cover and cut out a hole to fit the phone with the Extended battery installed. If I every change my mind I can buy another standard battery cover from Verizon for $5. Then took the Otterbox case and cut a tapered hole for the extended battery. Tappered so that the battery is held in place with the Otterbox case. I think it came out quite well and I'm pleased with the results. No mod of the rubber case was needed.

    That looks great woosh, I thought of it to but didn't want to cut any OEM part of the phone, I think between the two designs we have all the bases covered - then there's always using the extended battery/otterbox without the back cover as someone suggested, I did that for the first few days but a cut is vital for a secure otterbox feel

    i wonder if it would be possible to plastic weld the piece that you cut out to the back at the height that is needed for the case to fit? if i remember correctly the silicone fits a little loose on the phone where it could work

    I applaud all of the great workmanship and thought put into these two designs, but i cant justify paying for the protection of the otterbox case and then modding it to fit the extended battery at the expense of the protection that I made the initial investment for... these are great atheistic work arounds the larger issue; case manufactures need to recognize that -at least in the high end non-iphone smart phone segment- THEY NEED TO BEGIN TO PRODUCE CASES THAT HOUSE THE EXTENDED BATTERY OPTIONS... the fact that iphone- the largest manufacture of the smart phones sold- doesn't allow for an extended battery means that all other platforms are punished for exchangeable battery options... its pure fu*kery!

    I'm having trouble seeing what you did. You have a step by step?

    Does anyone know of a case that pets similar protection to the defender otterbox that will fit the extended battery?
