    Has anybody purchased the new 3500 mah extended battery from Gorilla Gadgets and had a good experience so far?

    Motorola Droid X 3500 mAh extended life battery

    I don't have it myself, so I'm just looking for personal experiences from people who are using this battery. I've heard great things from people using the 3500 for the EVO...

    I have it and the battery meter isn't synced to the extended battery. It was showing 5% power for 5hours and i was using it heavily. Dx

    GG Extended Battery


    I just got mine the other day, it fits perfect and seems to work well. Havent really left it unplugged long enough to really test it but so far so good. I only really bought it for long flights so I can watch a couple movies and not kill the battery but I do think I will use it more often than I expected.

    Could anyone post a picture with that extended battery installed. I'm not quite sure if it looks good.

    im very interested in this. Havent been on in a while looking at accessories but i know there was a time that the x wouldnt recognize 3rd party batteries. I assume this has been fixed in the latest OTA updates?

    Yeah, I used to have an Eris, and it did the same thing with the Seidio 3500. I got a feel for it after a while.

    Can anybody comment on how the X w/ a GG 3500 feels in your hand? I wouldn't mind a little more depth to the X - it may be huge surface area-wise, but it's too thin. :)

    It doesn't feel bad. Actually it seems better to hold onto it especially while texting IMO.

    Haha, wow that is big, but I didn't really expect anything different. It could definitely look worse. Just look at the seidio 2600 mah battery cover...now that thing is ugly.

    Yea it's big alright... but only slightly bigger than I expected! ... thanks for the pictures.

    Any updates on battery life? I had a similar one for my old WM5 Samsung i730... it would last about 3 days... the fat shelf on the bottom did make it easier to hold for texting.

    Me thinks with no possibility of getting any case to fit over that thing that I will pass and go with two standard batteries.

    DX- rooted, strapped, deodexed,OC'd, and themed how I like it...

    Does anyone know if a battery app like the one I use (battery status pro) may post the correct available battery power? Or does the phone just not recognize non stock battery power availability.
