    Hello everyone,


    I just got my Motorola Extended Battery and I was able to fit over it the verizon rubber cover, though, the verizon belt holster that I bought along with my verizon phone cover is

    What do all of you use as a belt holster for your Droid X with the extended battery ? I do not like to put my phone in my pocket, I rather have it clipped to the side of my belt...

    Thanks !

    Hi,

    Do you have a picture of the pouch that you are talking about ?

    I have the holster that has a belt clip from verizon. I like that one because it is easily accessible plus you can feel the phone better when someone is calling/txting you when its on vibrate than in your pocket IMO. Though like I mentioned before because of the extended battery, the verizon phone cover still fits over the slight bulge but doesnt fit all the way in the holster...

    I use this as well, plus a rubberized cover....nice snug fit and I don't have to worry <too much> of my 'clumsiness'.

    Thanks for the pics. Looks high quality. I wish there was an actual holster where you can just 'clip' your phone in place instead of a pouch for easier accessibility. Before I got my extended battery I used the verizon plastic holster where you just clip on your droidx.

    I don't understand, what is wrong with the plastic clip holster from verizon. It is a face in design so the extended battery has zero effect on it. Also if finesse it you can also put it in with the display facing out too. You just lose fi
    function of your camera button and the access to the charger port.
    The shell/holster combo fits as well its just a little tighter.
    The Platinum series case/holster combo from bestbuy is also a good one and fits well. Its 35 bucks and is made by Seidio (same combo they sell on their site for 50 bucks) just it says PT on it instead of Seidio

    I'm using the plastic clip holster with my D2 and very well satisfied. I HAD a DINC w/ the 'clamshell' holster (had cover for the back and then clipped into the other part on the belt) but lost the phone when I was putting my 2y/o grand-daughter on my left hip-----Luckily someone found the phone and it eventually made its way to the local pd where I lost it and I was called to pick it up. I started carrying the DINC in my pocket after that!!!!!!!

    I had the shell holster combo from verizon. It worked for a little while. However the small cover part that went around the charger ports snapped off. The phone itself didn't fit just right in it.

    Yup it is a nice case. Until you add the extended battery. It may have been okay for a while. However I took it out every night to put it in the desktop charger.

    I have the shell holster combo from Verizon and loved until i got the extended battery which was the best investment i made for the X. Now i just need to protect it. Thats why i don't want just the holster. Is there a shell/holster combo designed for the extended battery???

    This is exactly what i am looking for.

    1) A case SPECIFICALLY made for the Motorola extended battery

    2) A belt clip holster (you slide the phone into the holster, not a pouch) SPECIFICALLY made to hold the phone with extended battery WITH a case on.

    ^^^ I don't think there is such a combo unfortunately...


    I bought the pouch the one pictured in this thread.... Its not as convenient as the holster where you just slide your phone in....

    My favorite set up that i am using right now is the shell/holster combo, but instead of the shell, using the high gloss silicone. It seems to slide into the holster better than the shell that came with it. Plus gives better protection!

    This is very interesting. So you are using a silicone shell over your extended battery and fits perfectly plus you can slide it in your holster with ease just like if you didnt have the extended battery ?

    Do you have a picture of the silicone cover that your talking about ?

    It is the high gloss silicone cover offered from verizon. I don't have a picture of it but it is on their website. mine fits perfectly fine with my extended battery, i have read on here that some people report the opening where the usb and hdmi port are is a little bent oddly, but it doesn't really affect any part of it.
    I am using it in conjunction with the holster part of the verizon shell/holster combination, since the shell part doesnt fit as well with the extended battery.
    And yes, it slides in and out of the holster perfectly fine, its smoother sliding than the shell that comes with it, probably because it is silicone versus plastic.
    Ill see if i can get some pictures of it later one when I am back home...

    Thats good to know because with the shell over the extended battery you have to use 2 hands to slide it in and out of the holster because its so tight. Glad to know this is a solution...

    It is with my phone at least. I can't guarantee that it will work for everyone, because some people report some fitment issues with the hg silicone cover while mine fits on my phone 100% fine. The clear plastic case and the platinum case also fit good with my phone and slide well with that holster. The shell/holster is the best 20 bucks i spent at verizon, because it can hold my phone with almost any of the numerous cases i have purchased. i believe you said you already have that holster, i recommend trying it out with any other cases. if the silicone turns out to not fit perfectly for you, try some of the hard covers, you could always test them out in the VZ store before purchasing (they always let me no problems). Just a simple recommendation! I have the clip holster that comes with the platinum case that works with lots of the other cases, but my favorite holster is def the slide one that comes with the combo
