Motorola.com is offering the BH6X extended battery for the DroidX for $29. 99. Just type in the code GIFT4U60 at checkout. Don't know for how long, but worth a shot.

I just got off the live chat support, and they didn't help at all. They said that the extended battery is supposed to fit without the extended cover, but I asked them why they would make the extended cover in the first place. They just said that if I get it, and it doesn't work or whatever, that they'll send me the extended cover for free. Oh well.

technically the extended battery will fit with stock door (heard from past threads) yet may cause screen issues if its too much pressure.

devilsephiroth
12-01-2010, 11:08 AM
There are youtube videos on that, apparently it fits with the standard door. The difference between the two is extended hinges on the extended door. The door isn't that big, it just gives a slight lip to the back. I really don't Need that battery since I have a charger wherever I go, and I've learned how to extend my battery life.
But having an extra is always useful.

I'll let you guys know if the battery comes with the door or not. The support guy that I talked to said that if the stock door doesn't work with the battery, they'll send me the extended door for free. I know that doesn't tell you whether or not it comes with the door to begin with, but at least I have a backup plan, haha.

Awesome awesome service!

Use motorola's support and chat with them and tell them you didn't know it needed a door or whatever. They really should have put on the site that you need to purchase it separately. I just got a free one in the mail (before the battery lol) but it was a stock door so now theyre sending me another one (this time the right one) for free, again.

Thanks for the info, just ordered the extended battery and their new Stereo Bluetooth Headset (s10-HD). Will have to find out about the battery door, will follow up with their tech support. Does anyone know if the external battery charger will work with this battery, it didn't list BH as compatible, so I held off on that for now.

How many more hours will the extended battery last against the stock battery, big enough difference to out weigh the price? Or just investing in a car charger would be good enough?

BigDaddyNYY
12-08-2010, 02:44 PM
Hope it is worth it (I seem to remember reading that it was something like a 30% improvement over the stock battery), thinking about it now, I probably should have picked up the car mount for $24 instead of the battery, oh well. I was able to get them to send me a new battery door by using the chat, so at least I was successful in that, but now I think I will need a new case/holster. Will have to check to make sure that the Platinum case from Best Buy will fit with the extended battery (this sale is costing me a lot of money ;) ).

jefflikesbagels
12-09-2010, 06:00 PM
Just put the new battery in, to my surprise it made the phone feel a decent bit heavier for the battery only being another millimeter thick. As I suspected, the stock battery door doesn't fit, so I'm going to get back on the live chat tomorrow and ask them to send me the door. I have one of those eBay TPU cases, so I'm able to keep the battery in with the door off, without having to worry about the battery coming out.

Edit: the stupid live support would not budge. I ended up having to buy the extended cover separately, which sucks because I have to pay more for shipping. Oh well. Overall I made out better than the battery and cover at full price. It came out to be about $35 for me.

Pretty sure that it is the same battery. Original reports/packaging was that it was 19XX mah, but the actual battery was 18XX mah. Not sure what changed, but I am pretty sure that the battery sold from Motorola's store is the same that Verizon is selling, I seem to remember this being discussed back when the extended battery came out. But as usual, I could be wrong.

The extended battery door was definitely loose. The stock door was too tight. So, I shimmed the new one with a little aluminum foil by using some aluminum double sided tape to attach it to the door. I haven't noticed my battery getting hot, but I wanted to use something that would transfer heat from the battery to the door, rather than an insulator.

Good and snug now. Not the most ingenious fix, but I didn't want to fool with trying to bend the prongs and risk snapping one.

What charger did you order? People have been talking about a portable charger and adapter but I can't find anything like that just the one that was mentioned on page 1and 2.
Physicsguy said the P323 BOC charger wont work on the BH batteries as it isn't listed as a compatible charger.

My only concern is the portable charger P790 doesn't say it works with the extended battery BH6X. Does anyone know if it is comparable.

That charger is a battery. You charge it, then plug it into your phone to charge the phone.

You're thinking about a battery charger. I haven't seen one that will charge the BH batteries, but I'd like one too.

The P790 does work with the extended battery, but I have not tested to see how much of a charge it will provide. It should fully recharge a battery from 30% remaining as the P790 used to charge my original DX battery from 30% to 100% and then from 30% to around 80% on a single charge. You can also use the P790 connected to the phone while playing games or watching movies to avoid a drain on the DX battery, I do this while on flights so that my DX battery if on full charge when I arrive at my destination.

Keep in mind, that you need the mini to micro usb adapter to use the P790 with the DX, if the sale code is no longer working you could probably get both on ebay for less than $15 with shipping. It also appears that Motorola may have made a new portable battery/charger but it is only 1420mAh, not really sure about it, but it is available on verizon for $39.99 which should fit the DX without the adapter, but for the savings and a larger capacity I would suggest the P790 if you can find it. Here is the link to the updated version on verizon's site Set Your Location (http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store/accessory?action=accessoryDetails&archetypeId=12468&accessoryId=47330)

Just got my Extended Battery in, charging it up now. Does add a slight bit of weight to the phone... I think I like it :)

Shame about the cases though.

How does your new battery door fit? Seems like most of them are a little loose. Mine included.

Sorry for being off topic, but wow motorola's store is so awful! To return an item you have to CALL in. I've been on hold on the phone for 19 minutes and counting, just to return an item! I decided to buy a few things because of this 60 % off promotion, but never again!! /rant

Also, it takes 4-6 weeks to get the credit back to your account!

Just as tight as the original door actually. Weird.

Grrr. CS call about to go down. My main concern is that the copper contact on the volume rocker side is clearly meant to have good contact with the battery door, and does not with my loose extended door. Not sure what that contact is for (antenna or static damping of some sort likely), but I'd like it to fit like the original.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, no problem. I hope they can work it out for you (and just send a replacement door or something) fast.

Does anyone have working discount codes now that this seems to have expired?
