Correct item, absurdly low price
on March 7, 2011
For less than two bucks I was expecting a cheap knock-off that would not hold a charge for five minutes, especially given the "mixed" reviews of replacement phone batteries. Instead I got what appears to be a new Nokia OEM battery that holds a charge for over a week, depending upon usage of course. The battery has the hologram but the "scratch off" is actually a code number, X762U6A if anyone is interested in bird-dogging it, stamped over the hologram. So perhaps Nokia has changed the way they code their replacement batteries. Or not, who gives a crap, for what the ATT store or Batteries Plus wanted to ream me for I can buy twenty of these, not counting shipping of course. If I can complain about anything it is that I paid almost three bucks to ship an item that costs less than two bucks. But the packaging was good (almost too good, I had a hell of a time getting into it) and it arrived in a timely fashion. So for less than five bucks I have a good battery back in my phone. Which is a good phone for talking, much better than my POS Blackberry, where everything sounds like it is coming out of a barrel and which drops more calls in a week than my Nokia has dropped in five years.
P.S. I guess I should note that I purchased this item from AccessoryOne. It seems that this item gets bounced around from vendor to vendor and your experience may be different from mine due to your having purchased your battery from a different vendor. Could this possiblly account for the wide variations in the experiences of various customers with what appears, on the surface at least, to be the same item??
