Default 9700 boot problem with 3rd party battery

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,
I recently purchased an extended battery for my 9700 from ebay. The battery accepts and keeps a charge and seems to be working fine. However, the device will not boot unless plugged into a power source. Once it's started the boot process, I can disconnect the power source and all is well again.

This does not happen with my original battery.

Anyone have any ideas what may be causing this?

If the original battery boots the device fine, but the new one does not, return the new one to eBay. And IMHO, save up the extra money and buy from a more reliable source than eBay.
The Search tool and BlackBerryFAQ answer many questions.
