    I bought a sedio 2400ma battery for my 650 about 6 weeks ago, it works fine in my 680. I travel alot, so with that said, until hump-less, higher capacity solution is available I will be traveling w/ my 2400ma and some tape for those times I'm trapped @ the airport & all the good spots w/ outlets are taken........

    Based on some of the folks' posting, can anyone confirm that 650 battery can work with 680? (except the case will not fit)? I have two 650 batteries and migrated to 680, don't know what to do with the two 650 batteries. Thank you in advance...

    Yup, they work, but stick out and you can't put the battery cover back on.

    Okay, since the extended battery is already out, why didn't SEIDIO have the intuition to make covers for other colors other than graphite.

    If they have been reading the numerous posts (on MOST Treo discussion sites) on battery problems, they would have realized that this has been a NEED since day one.

    Come on guys, either make those non-graphite extended covers or make a slimmer MORE powerful battery that could fit with the standard cover.

    Uhh...they are. Direct from their website: "* Note: As of now, we only offer the Graphite Battery Door Cover, more colors will be released soon." Did you read that RRM, I'll repeat that last part for you: "more colors will be released soon."

    Again, they are. They're trying the best they can so I think you need to just STFU and be patient.

    anyone bought one of these yet and can comment esp on whether the battery drain is the same as the original (and hence bad 680 firmware) or if it's comparable to the 2400 mAh on the 650 (and hence bad 680 batteries sent out and not bad firmware)??

    There's no need to be talking like that to anyone. You need to cool it.

    Thank you all for the advise, I shall "redeploy" my two 650 batteries to 680.

    Does anyone think this battery on ebay would fit the 680? They don't give dimensions in the ad. It's cheap enough that I may give it a shot, unless someone specifically says "don't bother". Listed as "1700-1800 mAh":

    ((Most of the spare batteries I've bought for cell phones in the past have come from ebay. Had a handful of lemons, but most of the time I was very pleased. I've usually paid $10-$15, compared to the $30-$60 that cellphone makers charge for OEM batteries. My favorite aftermarket battery ever was on my Nokia 6160 (the old-style large candybar phone, circa 2000). That thing was a huge hump on the back of the phone, making the phone twice its normal size. But it lasted forever. I could go over a week without charging it...even when it got down to 1 bar of charge (out of 4 or 5....don't remember), I knew it was still good for a day or two. Good times...))

    brad...looks the same size as the 650 OEM...so it wouldnt fit without a humpback cover on the 680

    So does anyone know how many mm of depth the humpback battery cover adds to the phone? And is there any chance the average silicone skin cover would still fit? What about side holster cases?

    I don't know about the mm of depth, but I have used Palm's silicone skin cover with my 680 and Seidio's 2400 battery (which was originally designed for the 650).

    It was a little weird looking, but it worked just fine - it pretty much seemed to hold the battery firmly in place.

    I tried it and it definitely gets the Treo 680 through the day. BUT...my 680 had a lousy time reading the voltages from the 650's 2400 battery. The 680 kept thinking the 2400 battery was out of juice half-way through the day, and would keep pestering me about a low battery until it would finally force a shut-down (even though the extended battery still held a charge). I'd have to remove the battery and put it back in for the phone to recognize that there was still a charge in it. This would happen a couple of times a day.

    It was such a pain that I went back to using the 680's slim battery. I wonder if I have a defective battery or phone. The 680 doesn't have problems reading the voltage of the slim battery, nor does the 650 have problems reading the voltage of the extended battery.

    You are assuming that I might be stupid DavidT.

    STFU????

    Then, I assume you might be working for SEIDIO? Bad manners!

    There is no need for that here.

    I don't work for Seidio, if I did I would give you guys a full thorough review of this battery; it might actually help the sells if they had detailed bench testing of this battery unit as opposed to just saying it has 100% more capacity. Eitherway, I will be placing an order for this battery just to try it out.

    I'm still wondering 2 things:
    1. How much thicker does this make the 680, in mm?
    2. Would the "humpback" aftermarket cover hold the OEM 1200 mAh battery in place? If I buy the 2400 mAh battery, I'll still want to carry the 1200 mAh as a secondary (I'm a road warrior, flying weekly), but does that mean I'd have to carry the OEM battery cover also? Or maybe just a piece of foam to put under the humpback cover?

    For now (and especially lacking any real details on Seidio's site other than "It's thicker. Battery cover included!"), I'm holding out for a higher-capacity battery that's the same as the OEM's thickness (6 mm, right?), to maintain the slim, sleek, sexy form.
