For everyone wondering if the original razr can accept the razr maxx battery, the answer is YES! Ive taken both of mine apart, and it would appear that the battery compartments are identical, but the one on the maxx is deeper ofcourse. So then I took the rear cover from the max and put it on the razr, it fit perfectly but there was a gap between the sim card door and cover, the gap isnít that bad as you can see in the pictures. So, if you can find a maxx battery and rear cover, do the mod! And for all asking if it would be worth it. The answer is hell yes!!!!

Is it possible, by chance, to swap battery doors as well? It would be great to make a full conversion using only OEM components.

Yeah, because I am guessing that gap may hinder the water-proofing characteristics of the phone, perhaps?

i would assume so, howerver i dont know how to pull the door off...all moto did was add more plastic to surround the bigger battery on the maxx. everything else is identical. i took the cover from razr maxx and put it on the razr, it fit perfectly butit would push in to the battery. i think if you had the bigger battery the rear cover would be solid as on the razr as it is on the razr maxx.
if i can find the battery, or if anyone has a link, i will buy the maxx battery, cover and door. i want to try this out also...

Also to add, as I've mentioned here on the support forums:

https://forums.motorola.com/posts/4c...8997e&start=31

That Motorola should provide a send in service to upgrade your phone's battery - keeping your warranty - for a small fee (cost for parts, labor, and shipping; i.e. ~ $100?)

If I was in that scenario, I would certainly pay for that - beats shelling out for a new phone.

while i dont agree with your reason for motorola offering a battery upgrade on the droid razr. I DO agree that they should, they should do it for parts and labor, it would go a LONG way in customer relations.

Excellent, thank you for being brave enough to try this out. Now we just have to hope that OEM parts will become available - sooner, rather than later.
