    Received the new Droid 2 Extended Battery today (with the included new battery-door).

    Such an EASY FIT into the Droid 1. Inserting the battery was a piece of cake -- totally popped into place just as easily as the original battery used to.

    Closing the new battery-door requires just a *bit* more force than the old one did, but really not bad at all. Never felt like I was going to break it trying to slide it into place; I just had to apply a little pressure to the bottom-end of the door while sliding it upwards and it popped in there...

    Haven't had it long enough to know if it's going to be worth it, but I'm thinking it should be -- almost an extra 50% capacity, and I didn't have to buy a new multimedia dock.

    So glad you posted this! I *never* would've thought about buying this battery if I hadn't seen this post.

    *UPDATE*

    The Body Glove Case for the Droid 2 FITS MY DROID.
    But only the back half, the front half I still have to use the Body Glove case for my Original.

    The Body glove case for the Droid 2 contains a bit of an extra "pocket" in the back that the official extended battery fits right into.

    Why is this buried in the D2 boards?
    This is about putting a D2 Extended life battery in an ORIGINAL DROID...
    Nothing like hiding some great info...

    Maybe this needs to be moved?

    Sweet thanks for the pics, I was thinking about getting one but I always assumed it would stick out like a sore thumb. I remember I got an extended battery for my LG vx8300 a few years ago and the thing was massive and protruded atleast a 1/4" out of the back of the phone and it looked horrible.


    wow that looks disgusting and the exact reason why I didnt want to get one. The slim one is big enough for me and slightly worries me about the docks since I have both :-/

    By the way, the car dock for the Droid 2 works with the Original Droid. It doesn't look as cool, but it still does. It works with "inserts", and you can use a normal case even if you remove the insert!

    As was said before, all the "original" cases for the Droid 2 fit with the extended battery. There is a "pocket" for the back part of the case that fits the extended battery door perfectly. If you have the original droid, the back half of the case DOES fit snugly on your Droid (I should know, I used one on my OG Droid before getting the d2global), but it won't fit the front half because of the extra curve that hides the "chin", you would need the front half for your Original Droid.
