Default Extra Battery for 8130

Please Login to Remove!

I purchased 2 extra batteries off Amazon.com for under $8 each. They are labeled identically to the battery my BB came with--yellow, with Blackberry emblem and C-M2 all on the label, and was advertised as "new"...but I did not purchase it from BB directly.

I have read cautions since ordering the batteries that you should not use extra batteries not purchased directly from the company, as they may damage your BB. I don't want that to happen!

Does anyone have any experience with purchasing BB batteries from Amazon? Are there manufactured "lookalikes" that are marketed, which may damage my phone, even tho the label is identical?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

from the way you described them they sound like OEM!

every manufacturer will tell you that! i have used many non OEM batteries and had no problems! just make sure they are in good shape and enjoy the extra power
