Default Seidio Extended battery vs Case-Mate Fuel Case

Please Login to Remove!

When I travel for business, I started using a bluetooth headset but it makes the battery drain faster, obviously. I just ordered the Seidio extended battery, thinking I'll use that on trips, when I came across the Case-Mate Fuel Case. Seems like a great idea? The two are about the same price when you order the holder for the Seidio. Any comments on the Fuel case?

My opinion, not actually having one, is that it is a great idea but might not be an ideal solution (at least for me). I have my Bold set to display the flip clock when charging so that I have a bedside clock. This holster doesn't put the device to sleep, so if I were to use it, my Bold would display the clock while in the holster because it would be charging. That's not how I would like it to work, but this is not a fault of the holster, and the Bold is behaving as expected.

It also seems a bit thick for my preferences. My choice would be the extended battery over this holster (but then I don't have that either).

"Wow" is now overused. Therefore, I will use "Magic bananas" instead.
