I'm using the Moto BH6X extended battery from the Verizon store, it comes with a 1mm larger battery door but if you are careful you don't need it.

I'm using the same battery but to me it's not worth the price. It was a gift though so why not. It does give an hour or two of extra use.

Don't get the cheap ones off ebay. They say 3500 mah but don't last as long as a true 3500 mah battery should last. The 1800 mah BHX6 is a good choice or the 2600 mah from Seido would probably be your best bet...

Just popped on here to check into the extended battery for my x that verizon sells and seen this post. With my radar running, I often need to chard my x before work and before I go to bed to top it off

Sounds good. Ill drop in today and pick one up. My only concern is how much bigger it will make my phone.

It's barely any bigger than the original battery.

The new door sticks out 1mm past the back of the phone. If you are careful you don't need to use the new door.

I use the Gorilla Gadgets 3500. At $28 I think its the best exteneded battery available for the price. I went from approx 5 hours of battery life to approx 18 hours. Some have claimed to be getting up to 24 hours or more of battery life with the GG, so it definitely depends on how you use your phone.

The down side to the GG is the size. And until a good cover is developed you will have to taylor a cover to fit. The size doesn't bother me.

Here's a great review on the GG:

I paid $50 from VZW for my BH6X battery & door. I went to the local store, but the price was basically the same. The standard battery wasn't cutting it.

Just got the 1930 mAh EB. 50 big ones. I am very pleased to see that the size difference is very small. Thanks all!

Can you post a link for those? I haven't seen the battery that cheap and would love to have a spare. Thanks!

Sorry, have not looked at this thread for a couple days
I am an advid weather watcher and have weatherbug elite with a radar widget on my home screen along with about a dozen places that weatherbug will tell me about if there is a storm warning. The radar updates about every 3 hours but the actual software updates about every 15 minutes. A busy day for storms means by the end of my work day, my battery is in the yellow. Sometimes in the red

Picked up the BH6X from a verizon store today and got it on the charge. Is the new cover a really tight fit? I feel the new cover has not latched and will slide off very easy whilst in my pocket

The battery door that comes with the battery does have a tight fit, I think it loosens up a little after you use it for a while. If you are careful when you put it on, you can use the standard battery door with the BH6X battery. That's what I am doing because I got sick of the new door sticking out.
