TO me this seems the original battery though I would not know how to recognize a knock off. So far it charges completely and last as the original one I lost.
Cell made in Japan, assembled in Mexico. Didn't have a problem with installation. It looks original to me but I'm not an expert. But have been using it for 2 months and still working perfectly.
Both batteries I received work just fine, needed to be charged first. My original 2yr old battery would last about 30 minutes with heavy use. These last all day without needing to be plugged in. They are slightly different in construction than the original, could just be an updated version. Definitely worth the price versus a store bought $30 FS-1.
blackberry 9800 battery
The battery works great,It seems to be the real thing, but I dont know how to tell a fake from a real one. It is heavier then the org battery that does come with the phone. I approve.
Battery works well ... first shipment was lost
The initial shipment sent was lost by USPS. When vendor was informed of this they promptly sent out another shipment. The batteries appear to be OEM (official) Blackberry batteries, and were accepted by my Blackberry 9800 (no key required). After 2 weeks of use, the Batteries seem to perform as well as the original battery that came with my Blackberry.
I was not so confident of the purchase as I thought the battery was too cheap. Once I received it and placed in the phone all I had to do was to charge. The battery worked immediately and holds charge up to 2 12 days using voice, data and camera.
im very pleased with new battery , and a real ggood price . a diffinet buy for anyone looking to replace a battery that wont hold a charge as long as it use to .
this battery was a great purchase i bought it as a second battery for my phone with my long travels it was a great way in keeping my phone on and i can just switch batteries with no problems thats why i gave it 5 stars
