Default c-s2 Battery

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know whether its safe to pop in a battery from the 8700g(c-s2) into the 7100t(uses c-s1). I was going to test it-maybe get more battery life with it. I tried putting the cs-1 into the 8700g and it had a battery error icon. Just need to know if cs-2 has too much power for 7100t or cause any harm. Im falling in love with this thing and I dont want to hurt it.

I think that you can. I know that the 7100i did not like the c-s1

I guess there is 4 mhz difference between the two batteries. I was told that the cs2 would fry my 7100t. Can anyone verify? Extended batteries available for 7100t?

How many MHZ is the standard Bat for a 7100i and How many MHZ is it for the High cap. I went to a store and the battery themselves dont tell you. Does anyone know?

Firstly...

Batteries don't "have" megahertz (MHZ) - they have voltages (V) and capacities typically measured in MilliAmpHours (mAH). Too high a voltage could damage you device. mAH only affects battery life, so the more the better.

Secondly...

I heard a rumor that like many lithium batteries these days, the ones RIM use are 'intelligent' and you may find the cs-1 and cs-2 are not interoperable if only because the BB can identify which is which and only allows the one to work that RIM wants to work in a particular device. There may be a good (technical) or no so good (marketing) reason for this.

Wirelessly posted (VZW 7130e: BlackBerry7130e/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

The 7130 uses a C-S2 battery, and the 7100 and 8700 series are supposed to be able to use the same battery. So I would think you're fine.

Yes you can. I just bought a C-S2 extended battery for my phone and it works. Now I have an even split of 2 each. 2 C-S1's and 2 C-S2's. All 4 work fine in my 7105t.

the C-S1 battery is discontinued...

The C-S2 battery is fully backward compatible with the older (7100t/g/r/x/v and 7105t) units.

The new C-S2 and C-H2 (high cap) are "chipped". If the newer phone doesn't see that chip it will not startup - like a 7100i for example.

If anyone is interested we have 1 new C-S1 left in our old store for 33% our normal price (67% off list) http://store.bizshopr.com/rimacc-07494-001.html

The Extended is a C-H2 for the new one... the 7100t extended battery kit came with a C-H1 battery.

I guess we won't see any cheap 3rd party batteries any time soon, then?
