Not the real deal – Nokia BL-5B Compatible Rechargeable Li-ion Battery (3.7V 860mAh) Reviews

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

Pros:
Looks like the real thing, even has a convincing holographic logo!
Cons:
Doesnt perform like the real deal, lasts about 3 days, goes from full bars to dead flat on about the 3rd day and goes there fast. have had it in my phone for about 3 weeks and havent noticed a dropout in battery life as it was never that good in the first place, will probably change back to my old battery when it gets too annoying, will be OK for a spare if I run my battery flat using it as a Music Player
Other:
Might be better off buying one of a higher capacity
Bottomline:
OK for a spare, but dont rely on it
