View Full Version : Fortte 8700 Extended Battery Holster

Does anyone use one of these with a standard battery, and if so how does it work? I noticed that it is not recommended for standard batteries but I don't want to buy another holster when (and if) the extended battery for the 8700G comes out.

I occasionally use a standard battery in my 8700c with the Fortte STi Verticle Pouch for extended battery. While it was still very snug when I bought the case about 7 months ago, it is now a bit looser since I use the extended battery more often which has slightly stretched out the case. Still fits in the case fairly well, but does run the risk of slipping out of the case if it is accidentally swiveled upside-down.

Assuming the extended battery ever comes out from RIM I would think I wouldn't switch back to the standard battery (but then again who knows). I would also be going with the fixed clip instead of the swivel clip so hopefully it wouldnt be falling out. I just wanted to make sure it was somewhat secure in the elastic holster (the standard battery that is)
