    just got my extended battery and new back cover in today's mail. Like others have said, the extended battery time is just a bonus for me. I really like the better feel of the 8703 with the slightly "fatter" back end. Fits in the palm nicely

    ooopsss.....did I just say "palm" out loud?

    Really so you like the way it feels with the new battery? Do we need to get a new holster when getting the extended and larger battery?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    no actually you don't! the original snap holster works perfectly with the extended battery/new cover. They designed the battery cover so that it does not make contact with any of the mouldings on the holster that hold the BB in place, so you don't even notice it.

    Now, me, I am really nervous about the OEM holster, so i ordered the Seidio felt lined holster when I ordered my extended battery package, which has a hook that covers the top of the BB when holstered. I used this type of holster for years with my Treo, and it gives me peace of mind. The OEM unit is probably fine, I'm just very paranoid!

    the BB still goes in and out with one hand, there's just an extra measure of security for holding it in place.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Z06, it's funny that you should say that you feel the Seidio holster for the Treo felt more secure than the BB holster. I just got the 8703 and I felt just the opposite about the BB holster. I've had my old Treo fall out of the Seidio holster before. With the BB holster, it doesn't seem possible with the way the BB sits in the bottom of the holster.

    Also have the seidio extended life battery & love it! In my opinion, it is THE BEST after market item you can go with & surprise, surprise, it will be easier to take out of the standard (stock) holster! Get one. You just can't go wrong!

    I was also looking for an extended battery for my 8703e. Looks like the seido has great reviews. I feel confident now in ordering one.

    How much extended battery life do you get. I starting to see that a full charge will only give be about 7 hrs. Even if Im not useing it 5 hr a day. But i have Jive Talk, and Emails comming thru. So i check everytime i see the red light blinking. I wanted to get a BlackBerry 1000mAh Battery but i would still have to charge it wait until it dont to do it. Is there any other way to charge a extra batt while useing the charge one.
