    I've noticed in the forums that a lot of people are having issues with a dead battery while trying to SBF. I have an answer to all of you people who have killed their batteries trying to ghetto charge them. You can go on eBay and purchase an external battery charger for your Droid x supporting you bh5x and supposedly your bh6x batteries(I've never tried the latter but was told it will work as well) for only a couple of dollars. Most of them are coming from China but i bought mine off of a man in new Jersey. They are only a couple of dollars and will save you money in the long run. Mine also came with an extra USB cable and i think i paid $10 for the package with shipping included. My suggestion is to order this before something happens to your phone. Hope this helps

    I like that i got an extra USB with mine. I just think this would help people from ripping apart their USB cables and possibly damaging their batteries

    That's the extended battery that's available from Verizon right? 1800mAh or something close to that. Also do you use any case? I have a silicone cover for my x and was wondering if it will fit with an extended battery.
    Thanks

    To me the extended battery is well worth purchasing and you'll always have a spare of you do die.
