Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Works with my 5320. looks like original Nokia It's very cheap. yes ist is. But: ...
Cons:
... it's rater useless: first of all it doesn't fit very well - you have to force pushing it in the phone. well, THIS can be corrected easily with a sharp cutter, removing 1 mm of plastic on each side, worse is the capacity: After more than 5 cycles of dis-/charging it lasts not even half the time of original Nokia, as well as the Japod (DX sku 32403) But worst is, that the mobile shows "full" all the time, and then all over sudden the voltage drops that fast, that there are only one or two warntones, before the mobile switches off :-(
Other:
If you can afford a mobile, you can afford 4 bucks more to buy the Japod: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.32403 I own both and the Japod is at lest as good as Nokia, I guess it even last 10 to 20 % longer
Bottomline:
I will store it in the car (underneath where it's cool!!!) for worst case backup
