Default Accessories for 8700c

Please Login to Remove!

I recently purchased an official RIM external battery charger (RIM part # ASY-07042-002) for my 7100g. Does anyone know if this charger will work for the 8700c's battery which is different and labeled "C-S2"?

Thanks in advance...

The blackberry accessory page says the battery is compatible with the 7100 series. I have a 7100 from tmobile. I will try it and post my results.

Thumbs down

Nope, did not work for me. Switched the 7100g battery into the 8700c and got a big, bad ass Battery icon with a slash through it.

The original battery for the 7100t/g etc was the CS1... The 7130, 7100i and 8700 use a slightly different battery CS2. The CS1 battery wont work in the new units you need the CS2. You can use the CS2 in the older BB though. In fact RIM is discontinuing the CS 1 version.

The chargers are compatible for either battery.
