    Bionic, Extended Battery, Otterbox, and Dremel....

    After the first few days of using the extended battery/otterbox without the back cover for the otterbox I finally decided to make it permanent...

    Hey there,

    Was just thinking about doing the exact same thing. How did you like the outcome? Does it still fit in the holster? I'm thinking that perhaps something like a bit of thin rubber weatherstripping around the rough edge of the cut would be nice. It would leave just the back of the battery exposed to potential harm. But better the battery taking a shot than the actual phone.

    On second thought, the back cover is just rubber so if done neatly would be just fine leaving as is. You would never even know that you cut a bit of it out. Well done. If it still fits in the holster I will definitely be doing this.

    It fits in the holster just like it did before, I made the cut, filed the edges and used a buffing wheel to smooth it down so the extended battery back plate wouldn't get scratched up, also the front and back otterbox pieces snap together like they did before, you wouldn't even be able to tell unless I told you

    Blake if you send it to me with a return shipping label I'd do it at no cost, it was fairly easy but I couldn't guarantee it would be as seamless as mine was

    How long did your battery last before you installed the extended battery? I have mine set to turn off data after 15 min and it lasts quite a long time.. id say on par or better than my DX

    I did this same thing to my otterbox the day after release. One word of advice is to trim the rubber inside the outer cover where the speaker is to make it flush.

    I thought about the same thing for my droid. Then I realized the whole reason I use otterbox is because of how rugged it is...and now myotterbox IS my battery cover. Just left the stock battery cover off. It fits great around the camera and everything.

    Looking closer at the pics, I guess the bionic and d3 are quite a bit different in battery cover design?
