    Howdy,

    I'm considering retiring my aging 650 for a new spiffy 755P. I'm really excited except I have a few caveats. One of which is the accessory conundrum.

    I have additional batteries and a USB battery charger, as well as a car kit for my 650.

    Will my additional standard Palm batteries work in the 755P? Obviously they might have less talk time, etc, but in the right situation it's a great thing to have.

    Thanks!

    Nope. Sorry.

    I went from a 650 to a 755p, as well. I looked for one of my extra batteries for my gf to use with her 755p, but the one I found, first, didn't fit. It must've been for the 650.

    Since you made the switch already, anything you'd recommend or warn me about?

    You might find this thread useful: 755p through the eyes of 650 owners.

    While the 650 batteries won't fit with the standard 755p door, if you buy the Seido 3200mAh extended life 755p battery, the door they send with that will hold a 650 battery. Once I bought it, it was like buying two spare batteries since I was able to fit my 650 battery in there and have it work. It seems to last almost as long as Seido's 3200mAh battery as well. Give it a try. I'm not sure if the door sent with the 2200mAh batteries will work, but the 650 battery definitely fits with the 3200mAh door.

    If you're on a budget, you could probably just use some good old tape to hold it in there, too, but that wouldn't look too pretty.

    Good luck!
