    Where can I buy the latest hi capacity battery for my Droid 3 that will fit with the original door?

    Try eBay or Amazon. Those 2 will be your best bet.

    Just look for the BF5X battery. It'll fit.

    Actually I am looking at the BF6F, MOTOROLA PART # SNN5879A 1880/1930 mAh, as I have seen where some have said it will fit with original door.

    So you want the extended battery. Some people have said it would fit, although it's pretty snug. And I think it's BF6X.

    Yep, I am going to give it a try. I am hoping it will fit, and I will find out one way or another...

    The extended battery sort of fits. The back cover will not completely close, but it will probably close enough. That said, I really think that you are better off getting the proper back for the extended battery. It may be that the tighter space will cause the battery pack to not shed heat the way it is supposed to, which will be worse for battery life.

    Still, try it with the stock back and see how it goes...

    I got mine on Amazon. The back cover does not fit well with it in but you cant see it with a case on the phone.

    It was just a little bit of work to get the door on and with my Otter box on you can't tell the differance. So far so good!

    When I used the otter box with my extended battery I just left the back cover off. The otter box itself was a good enough back cover.
