Modified Droid Incredible 2 Silicon case for OEM Extended Battery

Last week, I bought the HTC OEM Extended Battery for my Driod Incredible 2. I wanted to have a little more juice for the phone. There are several extended battery brands, but I chose to purchase the HTC OEM. A review on that maybe later.

I was disappointed that I could not find any type of case that would fit properly over the HTC OEM Extended Battery. I did try the Hyperion HTC Droid Incredible 2 Extended Battery Silicone Case, but like the reviews say it will not work with the HTC OEM Extended Battery. You would think that some case manufacture would mold a silicon case for this HTC product. I needed to have some sort of case for protection around the edges and to raise the front up a little when I set the phone on the front glass. Because I don't have access to my own silicone mold (yet), I did the next best thing. I bought a regular silicone case for the Incredible 2 and cut the back out. Not ideal, but will give me the protection that I am looking for right now.

I will continue to look at other avenues.
