It costs a little more but it's usually a good idea to buy from a reputable seller. I recommend stopping by a couple of cellular retail outlets in your area. If they carry BlackBerry at all, they will likely carry that battery.

Yeah, like i said i'd rather spend a little extra and get a decent battery than spend less for a cheap fake which doesnt hold a charge.

Just an update and Q..... So i haven't gotten a new battery yet (hopefully tomorrow) but this morning i left the house with 50% battery level, i took one picture whilst out,then the battery cut out and the usual warning saying battery too low for radio use. When i got home i put it on charge,1.5 hours later it was 50% charged,i did a battery pull whilst it was charging and then it said fully charged.......? My question is, is that related to a faulty battery as well? My battery meter is definitely very inaccurate....???

Re: Battery issue 9700

Good to hear. Can't say I'm surprised, though!

Li-ion batteries (like all batteries) have a limited life.
