Transform your DROID RAZR into a RAZR MAXX for $110

For many DROID RAZR owners out there, the DROID RAZR MAXX is a topic of bitterness and jealousy. I would certainly not be impressed if my cellphone carrier decided to release a nearly identical version of my new phone with a gigantic increase in battery life and sell it at the same exact price only 2 months after mine was released. However, for the handy men and women out there, there is a solution that might be of some interest. Cellphone Repair Shop has created a DROID RAZR MAXX conversion kit that will set you back $110. Apparently the phones have identical hardware except for the back housing/battery cover. The kit includes:

  • Instruction manual with step-by-step guidance
  • 3300 mAh battery
  • DROID RAZR MAXX back housing/battery cover
  • SIM/SD card door
  • Adhesive tape

The base kit doesn’t seem to include the tools necessary to unscrew and pry the back cover off, however you can request to have those included for an additional cost. I realize that this may not be the perfect solution for some, but for those that want to double their battery life, this would be cheaper than breaking contract or even using an upgrade to grab a RAZR MAXX. Let us know if this kit will be the answer to your DROID RAZR woes in the comments.

    Seems like their following the Apple business model with all this proprietary stuff.
