Question 8130 Extended Battery - VERIZON?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know where to find a extended battery for the 8130 from Verizon, i have seen a bunch out there that are black, i want one that matches the chrome/silver finish on my phone so black wont work.

Seido is out of the question to because they insist on putting their company name on everything and it looks completely trashy, like i got it at the flea market...

Any help is appreciated!

You can rub the Seidio logo off with denatured alcohol and a Qtip. Plenty have done that. It's a great battery, at least mine is. Lasts me 4 days.

Seidio doesn't have an extended battery for the 8130 yet...someone from Seidio posted here that they are working on it...for some reason their 8100 battery doesn't work w/the verizon 8130. Seemed odd, but that's what he posted, and on their site they don't list an extended battery for the 8130.

That is correct. It seemed odd for us too, but unfortunately RIM is not supplying us with the ins and outs of their batteries or phones. We are currently working on an 8130 battery and will let you know as soon as it's available.

Thanks,

While you're at it, let's get that holster for a skinned 8130 done as well, OK?

Thanks!

You can use the skinned holster from the 8100 on the skinned 8130.
