I don't see it. No search brings it up.

This appears to be the battery the OP is talking about on CNET Shopper:

RIM BlackBerry C-S2 - handheld battery - Li-Ion - 1100 mAh - Compare prices, reviews, user opinions -

As they say, you get what you pay for. If you pay $1.70 for a BlackBerry battery, you are likely to get a battery worth $1.70. In other words, it is likely a cheap knockoff. Plus, it is sold through Amazon Marketplace. Not a place I recommend doing business if you ask me. Don't confuse Amazon Marketplace with Amazon. Think more along the lines of eBay.

"Wow" is now overused. Therefore, I will use "Magic bananas" instead.

I've bought from Amazon Marketplace before and everything has been fine. Quick turnaround from several different vendors and zero quality problems.

But I strongly prefer regular Amazon, to the point that I will pay a bit more if there's a choice between Amazon and another seller. Usually shipping evens that out anyway, but I just trust Amazon. With batteries, even if they're genuine, they could easily have been sitting in some back room for 2 years and be just as worn down as what's being replaced.
