    As for my question #1, I just now saw in a different thread that David Chang of Seidio says that the device with the bigger battery and humpback battery cover is 4 mm thicker than stock.

    Is the battery door available seperately? I already have a seidio extended battery (bought for my 650) and hoped that I could try that battery with my 680.
    Unfortunately not. Our original Treo 700/650 battery is not fully compatible with the new Treo 680.

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.
    Your assumptions are correct. Our original Treo 700/650 battery is not fully compatible with the new Treo 680.

    We regret to inform you that there was a delay on our initial shipment of Treo 680 batteries and we will not have them for a few weeks. We are also hoping to have multiple colored doors available at that time. We apologize for the inconvenience and will let you know as soon as they're available.

    Thank you

    Ugh. That doesn't bode well for the slim extended battery.

    Ditto - I bought 2 extended batteries for my two 650's that are now both swapped out for 680's!
    Clie -> Treo 270 unlocked -> Treo 600 unlocked -> Treo 650 unlocked -> Treo 680 Crimson + Graphite (can you hold on, the other line is ringing...)

    Thanks for the feedback. Is the new 2400 battery for the 680/750 backwards compatible with the 650/700? Alternatively, is there a way to get my existing 2400 battery to play nicely with the 680? (I would hate to have to purchase another battery of the same capacity & size of one I already have, if possible).

    Thanks...

    Does Seidio plan to offer just the door as a seperate part? I think that would be a bigger seller than offering it as a package. I have three 650 batteries in good shape I would like to use with my 680 if I had a proper door for it.

    Unfortunately, it is my understanding is that it won't be backwards compatible. I really wish I had a better answer for you. We were hoping that we could use our existing battery as well, but it was simply not the case.

    We aren't at this time because the 650 batteries are not fully compatible with the 680.

    are you kidding me with this?

    This is Seidios way of making money off you TWICE!
    Some people will buy this as a temp solution and then buy the other battery if/when they put it out (and if someone else doesnt beat them to it).

    this is completely bull but hey its your money. enjoy the scam!

    You couldn't be farther from the truth. This is in no way a scam on our part. The new 680 and 750 are simply not fully compatible with our old battery. Since we know this, it wouldn't be good business for us to sell a door for a battery that isn't supposed to be in there anyway.

    Would it be too much trouble on your part to further elaborate on why it is not fully compatible? I think that is the question all of us are wondering.

    You can't say it doesn't work or isn't fully compatible without an explaination and expect not to get bashed when there are probably hundreds of people out there using their 650 extended batteries in their 680/750s w/o any problems.

    I've read of some charging circuitry problems over at the 750 forum but so far no one hasn't complained of their 650 battery not working on their 680.

    to seidio (David, right?)
    Just to obtain clarification on this, is your 2400 extended battery showing that it in fact does not have a battery drain problem associated with it?
    I realized that it won't be available now for a few weeks, but my concern is that it is speculated that there is a firmware problem causing the battery drain that so many of us are seeing. I would then wonder if any battery in there will ultimately do the same. Thanks!

    I've used my old PALM 650 battery several times in the Treo 680 and with no bad results except that there is no back cover on the device. But the pouch I use keps the battery in place quite well.
    This PRE is MINE all MINE! But if you ask nice I might let you hold it!

    A VERY good question - asked this before and got no response. if that IS the case and it's the firmware the extended battery is just a patch until Palm releases and update.

    If the battery makes the phone behave like say the 650 using the same 2400 mAh then it's the original 680 batteries that are bad - cause for a massive recall maybe? This will be a very important piece of info esp when ppl decide whether to buy another battery and what kind.....

    I purchased a 2400ma 650 battery from Seidio not 8 weeks ago, you mean to tell me that is not compatible with the 680? Funny because if I also put in the other two 650 batteries I own (original that came w/ my 650 & the Mugen) they both work perfectly in my 680, for the exception of the door.

    Guys, not fully compatible does not mean it doesnt work, but in the case of damage the manufactorer will not grant any garranty. That is how here in germany this statement would be interpreted. Usage is on your own risk.
