Hi ... new here ... I would think that the thicker, extended-life battery, which comes with an additional (seperate) case back (Seidio Innocell Extended Life Battery for BlackBerry Curve 8300, 8330 (Black) may still fit into a spring-lock case (being optimistic) since the extension of the case back that accomodates the thicker battery starts towards the bottom third (or bottom half) of the case back, and not the top. Otherwise, if you don't want to use one of these holsters/cases, you'd have to get another carrying case.
I use one of these Best-Buy/Platinum/PT cases.
