    I've done a search and it seems that the Ext. Slim Battery is fraught with troubles.
    Is that the consensus?

    I get the feeling from a majority of accessory makers that the Motorola Droid is now yesterdays news. They have now moved on to other devices.

    I've been interested in the slim extended battery as well. I haven't heard anything about it either way though. So it's not doing so well?

    I could have sworn I've seen a 1750 mah battery for the Droid somewhere but I just tried to get you a link and I can't find it. I must have just missed the word "incredible" in there.

    Lol, I guess that answers that question.

    Oh well, I have the 2600 extended battery so I don't really need the slim one anyway.

    Amazon is selling the OEM batteries for $5.09. You could buy several and wear a Battery Bandolier.

    What Battery options are there for the MotoDroid, any exceptional EXT Life models? What's the best to have, OEM?

    I saw some extended life batteries on ebay just yesterday, but it's kinda vague if they're for the moto droid or not.

    I never really got interested with buying extended batteries... I just carry my ZAGG Sparq with me all the time and a short micro USB cable... Gets the job done! It charges all my gadgets as well!

    Seidio sells both a 2600mV and 2800mV (the OEM battery is 1300mV). I got my 2600 from Amazon for about $56. Both are about twice the thickness of the OEM, so if you're using the Multimedia Dock and a Holster, you'd have to change them. Seidio sells both accessories as well as Droid Forums (the battery as well).

    A problem with the those batteries is that there is no app currently that will accurately tell how much is there. I mean, the battery may be able to run 50 hours, but the phone will be telling you to charge after the first 8. I use the app Battery Left and have the widget set for mV. If it's less that 3500mV I should charge it soon.

    The OEM batteries cost about $8 from Amazon, so you could have one as backup.
