    I looked on their website and I can't seem to find it anywhere. I went to my account and went to accessories and they only had the standard batteries. I could not for the life of me find the extended.

    I went and looked on google and found this:

    Motorola Droid X Extended Battery Life Package (5 Star Rating): Google Checkout available.

    I never heard of the site and I was hoping someone would have some feedback on them and why I get 2 extended batteries and a charger cheaper then I would just 1 extended battery from Verizon. It just seems a little odd to me.

    Its because that is cheap crap and the Verizon battery is a good battery.

    Just go to a Verizon store, at least around here they are in stock.

    Beware non ome batteries with 2.2. There are a few threads about this. The extended battery is removed from the website when they are out of stock.

    I live in PA. Outside philly. I went to all the stores around here and they are all sold out. They kept telling me to go online to get it. Im not in a rush to get it I just would like to have a back up battery you know.

    Yeah, I hear you about the extra battery.

    Good luck getting this figured out. If you can remember to, let us know what you end up doing.

    I am going to find a store that has it and buy it. Since I'm not in a rush I will visit the local stores and check online every so often. I'll eventually get one.
