  • Cheap but nearly useless

    posted by mersi on 05/26/2009

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - yes, it is much cheaper than original ones

    - the cable works fine

    - the battery fits perfectly in the controller bay

    - the colour is the same

    Cons:

    After unpacking i realized that the casing of the battery was loose, therefore i had to glue it back together (wasn't a problem at all)

    BUT...!

    Then I tested the battery with a special charger equipment and was shocked. The battery is lightyears away from 4800mAh - the result in a five time charge and decharge cycle was 558mAh (yes, this is the right number, believe it or not). And that isn't that much of course...

    Maybe i was unlucky or the battery gets better over time but i don't think so.

    OtherThoughts:

    cheap if you only need the cable or want to build your own battery packs

    Bottomline:

    The quality wasn't good enough therefore i wouldn't buy another one :-(
