    I've read a few posts about extended life batteries from the 2150 to the 3500 and then that the 2150 was replaced by the 2500 and now I found the 2500 with battery cover on a web site, Orion Gadgets I think... for $20.00 with free shipping! Does anyone know if this is the same 2500 that I've read is the good one? It seems too good a deal like I'm missing something...
    To any info, Thanks!

    ... And I just found a 3500 on Amazon with cover for $15.00!!! I am way confused as to why all these prices are so much lower than the $50.00-$60.00 I've read you guys talk about...

    If it's the seidio 3500 for 15 bucks, buy it-unless the seller looks shady. It may be worth the gamble on whether you get ripped off or not. It's a hell of a battery.

    It's more than a hell of a battery, it's a Game Changer. It totally solved my battery problems and allowed me to use my Dinc as my main phone without sacrificing the way I want to use the phone - brightness turned up all the way, GPS and WiFi on 24/7, music apps playing constantly. That battery was the solution, not the workaround to my battery issues.

    Yup, of I'm an idiot... I've never shopped on Amazon, and I learned very quickly that the super cheap price points I was asking about on the forum here, were "used" batteries... So I ordered up a new one, well, two actually... (one for the lovely girlfriend) directly from Amazon for $53 a piece, and WOW! Like everyone else has said, this battery makes the Dinc (in my opinion) THE MOST AMAZING PHONE EVER IN THE WORLD!!! Battery life for days and days and days and days!!!

    I must throw in my .02 about the Seidio 3500mah battery. Game changer indeed! I was very dissapointed in the battery life of the OEM battery, so much so I was almost ready to give up the phone. But this battery makes it the phone I wanted.

    Now if someone would just make a case to fit it.

    Me and a friend of mine have both gotten this phone, the Speck case and the Seidio battery. We modified the Speck case to fit and I must say it is not too bad.

    You need some safety glasses, a dremel tool with the cut-off discs and a sanding drum attachment.

    I've realized that I don't really need a case for my phone with this fatty battery shoved in the back. That being said, I would still LIKE to have a case on it. I had a crazy idea of buying a broken incredible, and using it to build a mold for the purpose of making a batch of cases. Carbon fiber anyone?

    If you make CF ones with a rubberized back on them, hit me up! I know I will take a couple of them.

    On the outside? I'm already thinking it'll be necessary on the inside.
    Btw, this idea is still just an idea. There are a lot of technicallities to work out :)

    I would think that the inside needs to be like the Speck case, super thin foam. A rubberized outer on the back would keep the phone from sliding around. That type covering comes in handy when sitting the phone on the console of my car, work van or whatever.

    I just found cases for the 2150 battery at htcpedia.com that look nice. Looks like a very slight mod would let it slide on the 3500. Unfortunately the site went down for maintenance while I was checking it out.

    I have, on my Dinc., a 3500 battery along with the case that Seidio makes to go over the battery and (free) battery case. If you want one, go here: Amazon.com: Seidio Innocase Extended Case for HTC Droid Incredible for Use with Seidio's Innocell 3500 mAh Extended Life Battery: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Yeah, not too thrilled with that seidio extended case. I linked it in my previous post. I want coverage all the way around. Does that seidio case ever snag on your pockets or anything? Looks like it might. It's obviously working for you, so,,, cool beans man.

    No, it never snags on anything - a smooth fit all the way around. I honestly believe that the earlier poster makes too big of a deal out of it being open at the top and bottom. I've had that battery and that case on my Dink for close to a year now, and while I've never dropped ANY of my phones, the open nature of the case never bother or inconvenienced me in any way and I'd truthfully forgotten about that aspect of the protection until he brought it up.

    Your choice, but it's a great addition to the marvelous extended battery, and provides as much protection as you're likely to find.

    I wasn't really trying to sell you on the case, or talk you into buying one. I was just relating my personal experience with the 3500 battery, which I consider a Game Changer for the Dinc, and the case for that extended battery. If you've already bought the battery, then you know what I'm talking about and the case is more than just "functional", it's not half bad. :):)

    ""
    HTCPedia Extended Battery Case
    Just giving a heads up in case anybody has seen these and thought about buying one.


    HTCPedia.com is selling an "Extended Battery Fit Hard Rubber Case for HTC Droid Incredible." I'm new, so I can't post the link.


    I purchased one of these since I currently have one of the extended batteries in my Dinc and haven't seen another case that works with it. I received it on Friday and was a little shocked. This is NOT a case designed to fit the Incredible with an Extended battery. It is a standard case manually cut to open the back up so the extended battery can fit through it. As if that wasn't bad enough, not only did it not fit...but the cut job was really crappy. Squared off corners instead of rounded, double cuts in some places that left slivers of the material sticking out, etc. If you are planning on getting one of these you are better off just buying the standard case and cutting it yourself. You'll save money and likely do a better job.""



    That's a quote from a thread on xda.
    Not many options left. Buy the only case made-which is quality crafted-or build your own.

    Well that is crap. The pics on the site sure do not look like they are cut out, they look to cover the entire thing. Looks like bait and switch. I would definately be giving them a call for a full refund.

    Heck mine looks better than what you described.
