    I was wondering about the 1700 extended battery made by Seidio for the Tour 9630. Is that compatible with the bold 9650?

    Yes, but that battery only last 15% more then the stock battery. If you want great battery life, get the Seidio 2600 battery

    yes but he wants a battery that fits the 9650..

    if you are going to suggest car batteries at least indicate that cases and skins wont fit and that he needs a new battery cover ..oh and that the phone will look like a brick

    incorrect. The 2600 battery adds only 3mm to the back of the phone, and there are cases that fit with the battery as well. Seidio makes cases for the 2600 battery as well. I use it and would not know what to do without that battery

    *incorrect* umm nope..

    I was trying to be flip.. but was, in fact, correct...

    3mm is 21% larger, you need a different battery cover and many cases will no longer fit.

    why not simply admit you totally glossed over the fact that the phone dimensions CHANGE.. just tell people of the full impact of your sage advice...which was to buy a battery that is designed for, but requires modification, to fit the 9650 ?

    any significant increase in batt life?

    I had gotten a Seidio for my Nexus when I had it... jump was only from 1400 to 1600... and frankly, for $50, it was quite dissappointing... was really noticeable... batt life still sucked...

    so wondering if the 1700 is really any major jump from the stock 1400 DX-1... which I already don't have battery life issues or have yet to run out of juice at inopportune time...

    For the people that use the 1700 battery with the bold I was just wondering if it is a decent jump in life compared to the stock battery? Is it worth the 50 bucks?

    You will notice about a 15% increase in the life. Personally it will be enough to make it through the VERY long days for me, since my battery now already lasts me a full day. I charge every night which doesnt bother me personally.

    I used the Seidio 1600MaH battery in the 9630 and it afforded me approximately 3-4 additional hours of usage.

    Compared to a fresh battery pack or an older one? I currently am nearly a year with the original battery and it's showing wear and tear now, since I can barely make it to 12 hours with the use I do.

    I've tried a so-called OEM from eBay, but it doesn't fit properly. Ends up being really tight and it's a pain to get out when I'm swapping packs on a long day.

    How does the Seidio compare for size? With the original battery, I just cradle it in my hand and bang it against my leg and it just pops right out. Can I expect the same from the Seidio or is it going to be jammed in?

    If your 3 to 4 hours is accurate compared to a fresh battery, then that would be perfect for my usually 18-20 hour days. Right now I'm maybe getting to 8 or 9 hours if I'm lucky.

    Within a month of getting the Tour, I got the higher capacity battery. The Seidio seems to fit just like the OEM does. I generally remove the battery by [gently] smacking the phone against my 'cupped' hand. Ninety percent of the time, it falls out on the first whack.

    Keep in mind, I'm referencing the Seidio 1600mAh. I don't know how the 1700mAh fits. I just ordered it and it should be here tomorrow. After I receive and install the battery, if it should fit differently, I'll post advising of such.

    For the money I'd prefer a bit more power than only a 300mAh increase. Is there any other larger battery that has been confirmed to fit in the existing space with out a bigger door? Confirmed? Anyone?

    I have the 1700 coming soon too. I have been using the 2600 battery for over a year now, but getting tired of only having 2 cases that fit with that battery. I hear good things about the 1700 battery from Seidio, so if it adds 4-5 more hours a day, then that would be great!

    I thought someplace on the forum I heard $40 for the 1700mAh. I cheked seidio and crackberry shop and it's $50. Anybody know of any discounts,codes or anything?Be nice to knock some off. 50 bucks is kinda up there. Those 8 buck ebay batts scare me.

    This is the only extended style that will fit in the battery door that came with the device. You may find knock off brands, but I'd never trust em.

    So far the results I am seeing are great with the 1700. Where I used to be at 30% after 17hours unplugged im still over 60% now, so the improvement is definitely there, and I havent even cycled the battery enough yet to get maximum potential

    Got the 1700mAh battery today. It fits a little more snug than the 1600mAh did. It's not enough to spark complaint, but you'll have to smack a little harder to get it out. Maybe after the wrapper that it's encased in wears or compresses, the fit will loosen-up slightly. Anyway, it's all good! No complaints! Can't wait for the break-in period to lapse so I can see how it fairs against the [year-old] 1600mAh battery it replaced.

    With an hour of talking on the phone, lots of emailing, web surfing, and a number of texts.... my Bold has lost only one, um, battery segment on that meter (what do you call that anyway?).... so after exactly 12 hours of being unplugged... it still has a pretty fresh battery.

    That big battery does look interesting, though. I'm just using the blackberry case that comes with the Bold for now. It ain't bad at all, I've never bought an aftermarket case for a phone. Glad to know the Seido battery will fit.
