XB, those (8700 and 8300) batteries and completely different, and it wont surprise me if it doesn't work very long... use the battery intended for the BB.

[[Edited--my mistake, looks like the blue C-S2 is correct]]

The 8300 actually comes with the C-S2 battery, the blue. Not the gold/yellow like the pearl.

JSanders, you look at picture of curve in my hand. I put 8700 battery into the 8300 and I played it for 24 hour less after I opened box, I took curve out of box. no need 8300 battery for curve. smile

Hey, is that the face of Benjamin Franklin I see in those clouds?

Who cares? I didn't say it would not work at all...
