    I got both mine and my wife's through VZ over the phone we got a corp discount 25% paid $27.00 rep gave us an additional 10% discount not sure how this can transfer if at all

    Check to see if your company has a corporate discount I listed the rep I worked with Larry Montero in another thread dancedroid

    Thanks for the feedback. I work for a small law firm so I don't think that discount would apply to me.

    I put the extended battery in mind about two weeks ago. With moderate use (text, email, web) I get about 30-35% more battery life...no problem going from 6AM to 11PM with 40% battery left. I think it is worth the investment...$49.00 if I remember from the Verizon online store. The local Verizon store didn't have the battery in stock. The back cover that comes with the battery just flattens out the portion around the camera. I could not tell any difference int he over all thickness of the phone...there is probably some though.

    I just ordered one from verizonwireless.com and the promo code BAT30 worked! I was able to get $15 off plus it already came with free overnight shipping. Total came to $36.75 :icon_ banana:

    You're right.

    That sucks. Not sure how it worked yesterday but it did.

    I guess procrastinating got me this time. Next time I need to pull the trigger quicker and just order it. Oh well. At least they still have free overnight shipping.

    I just got it a few minutes and gave it to my wife. She installed it and the new extended battery and new cover still fit perfectly with her Motorola Droid Pro Silicone Skin Case(Argyle). :)

    I have the Verizon extended battery and back cover. Before I bought it I looked at just about every vendor that sells cell phone batteries. Verizon, as far as I can tell, is the only one selling it. You can buy what they call an extended battery from Siedo, but it is a relatively small increase over the stock battery...it's not worth the expense in my opinion. If you're going to spend money...get the Verizon extended battery...it's worth it.

    And be careful buying third party batteries from anyone else besides seido. I got some on ebay and the droid refused to charge them and will not report usage. However, I have an external charger and these cells work well as emergency cells. I keep one in my wallet and it saved me a few times.

    Can you help me out here? I'm in Pennsylvania and the Verizon store where I got my Pro told me they don't have extended batteries for the pro because of the back cover fit. I called last week. They told me to check Motorola, which doesn't show extended battery on their website under Pro accessories. Not to appear dense but can you point me in the right direction. Need one really bad :) Thanks.

    I ordered mine from the Verizon on-line store. I'm pretty sure they still have. The battery and back cover come as a set. Good luck.

    You must have spoken to an idiot. It's been sold by Verizon pretty much since the Pro came out:

    Well I bought the seidio extended battery and it does not give me "extended" time on the battery. It uses the standard back to the phone and you do not need a new one.

    Do not waste your time. Ordering the Verizon one today and I will use this one as a back up or try to pawn it off on someone else :)

    +1 sailcappy. The stock battery is a 1460mAh battery. The Seidio is a 1500mAh battery for $42.95. The Verizon extended battery is a 1860mAh battery for 49.95. There is a lot of difference between a 40mAh plus up for 42.95 and a 400mAh for 49.95.
