    i looked and didn't see a thread for this...i was curious and tried putting my storm battery in my tour, and had no problems. has anyone else tried this? is would there be any benefit? or because of the hardware diferences would the tour still drain the battery the same and keep the 5 hours of max talk time quoted from RIM? I sure like the idea of keepin my longer lasting storm battery lol

    I did this as soon as I got home from the store as my purchased battery didn't have much juice left in that one, so I swapped it with the fully charged one (DX1) from my Storm. I later switched them back, so the fresher one is in my Tour, but it worked fine!!!

    My storm's battery life was horrible. The tour's is amazing. Why would you want to switch the battery?

    They are the exact same batteries.

    Just like the Curve and 8700 series ran the same batteries.

    Would a storm extended battery work in the tour?

    I did the same thing. Worked well with no problems. Battery life on my Tour has been very good.

    because the battery life has more to do with the screen size etc

    theyre identical batteries
