    I just received my Seidio Innocell 2600mAh Extended Life Battery for the Motorola Droid a few days ago and wanted to give my first impressions. It comes in two pieces: the extended battery and the battery cover. The battery cover is made from the same material as the Innocase which is a soft grippy material. Once installed the bulge of the battery does not seem as large as it does in the pictures on Seidio's site. Also there is very little bulk added from the battery. In fact it feels like it weighs as much as the Droid with its regular battery. The back cover fits very tightly so I don't think anyone will have the same issues many experienced with the stock battery cover. The phone feels great in my hand even with the back part sticking out. Seidio recommends that you charge this battery for 8 hours the first time and go through 5-6 charge cycles for the battery to reach its peak performance. I am in the process of doing this so I will post an update soon.

    Wow, that looks like it extends 3/8" out from the back. I had an similar extended battery for my old Moto Q and did not really like the feel of that. Thanks for the photos, I will check back for performance reviews.

    I could not use this at all times, but this would be nice if you are on a plane and cannot charge your phone!

    That looks HORRIBLE!

    I would rather just carry an extra charged battery with me or a charger than carry the phone with that ugly thing.

    Good luck!

    It reminds me of the STARTAC days with the extended life battery. At least with the STARTAC the entire back of the phone was battery instead of the humpback whale here...

    I made the mistake of buying the first..Seidio extended battery. I was not impressed, I am sending it back after 3 charge cycles.it was still half the life of the droid OEM battery.
    I love there cases..and their screen protectors..but they have a way to go in the battery market if you ask me.

    Why not just carry a spare battery? I don't see the rationale here with thbat huge batt sticking out.

    Don't care about aesthetic. It's either in my shoulder pocket on my ACU's on my desk or in my hand. I am more worried about being able to use my phone all day without having to charge during lunch. Also if there is an emergency after my duty day i need to be able to respond.

    as far as the extra battery, im still debating. I also want to see how much the 1750mah extends before i make a decision.

    You had a bad battery.... others have reported near double time.... don't let one battery be the image of what they all are.... that would be inaccurate and unfair.

    Are you using the same charger you use for your OEM battery?.. if not, it could be the charger.

    I bet it won't fit on the media dock with that hump.
