10-4. I guess i'm gonna get it ordered then. My droid x will be outdated or ruined before otterbox makes something it looks like....... then who knows if it will even work with the extended battery......, thanks for the help.
You should be very pleased with the case holster combo. The case holds together very well and the case is very secure in the holster. HM the best of both worlds...
Just got the Seidio surface.....fits very well on the X with the extended battery. No ugly gaps or distortions (like I pictured on page one of this thread) that I can see. One thing I need to get used to is the lip that comes up around the bottom adjacent to the buttons....there is less room there to depress the buttons vs. the glossy silicon. But, overall, this is a nice looking case that works well with the extended battery.

I do see the problem with using the standard battery door with the extended battery...The standard battery door pushes on the battery, pressing the battery pretty hard against the back of the display. I tried using the standard door, but I immediately noticed that when I pressed the screen with my fingers, I noticed a very obvious "swirl" in the display, much like when you press on a notebook's LCD screen. I've been told that this will eventually cause problems over time with the screen if left like this
I use the Verizon cover-holster combo and the extended battery cover makes for a very tight fit when inserting the covered phone into the holster. For now, I'm not even using a battery cover of ANY kind so I can still use the holster. But obviously, I can't keep doing that forever. In fact, I'm going to be out and about and I'm going to use the fiber case that I bought when I got the X because the cover-holster combo wasn't available.
I'm going to use the carbon cover for now, but I REALLY hate carrying a phone in my pocket. I'd appreciate any information on another case-holster combo that is made to fit the X with an extended battery. I even considered going back to the standard battery since I was getting through the day (from 6am to 5 or 6pm and putting on the mobile charger for the 45-minute ride home from work. But nahhh, I'm really enjoying the extended battery's usefullness.
Thanx for any help,
Here's an extended battery with a cover that is huge! I haven't been able to find a case that will cover it. I also wonder if this battery is legitimate; meaning if the 2600 MaH rating is real or is this a piece of garbage. If the 2600 rating is real, then this is the longest lasting battery for a Droid X I have seen.

Just got my BH6X extended battery. I put the extended door that came with it because the original battery door (for the BH5X) was a bit too snug for my liking.
I use a real simple silicon case - nothing fancy and very cheap (about $6 w/ $3 shipping at overstock.com - Motorola Droid X Premium Silicone Skin Case | Overstock.com). I was hoping that the extended battery WITH new door wouldn't cause a problem. I'm glad to report it works fine/VERY well. Highly recommend if you're a cheap bastard like me
