I bought 2 compatiable batteries EA-BL08 from http://store.l-f-l.com, and the result is they cannot be used in my newly bought C3200. When it is plugged, the LED will blink, and refuse to work in the PDA. I then charged it in my spare charger. Even after the batteries are fully charged, the PDA refused to work with it.
I then bought another one in China, the factory are building compatible batteries for Sharp's PDAs, also the same type: EA-BL08, but it cannot work with C3200 either.
Has anyone heard of the constrain? I don't know whether it is the problem of the battery or the constrain of C3200. Has anyone successfully used compatible batteries(EA-BL08) with C3200?

i am inclined to belive that the problem isnt with third party battries on the dell and apples (as they wernt third party) but that it is due to heat being acumulated near the battery

as we all know lithium is one of the most highly reactive elements known to man (potasium bieng first) and is never found in its pure form because of this. even heating slightly is a bad idea and it dosent supprise me that when a processor that can pump up to 60W is next to a mass of highly volitile chemicles that thier would be a tendency to explode

the saftey features in litium battries do not extend to overheating as far as i am aware as it is next to imposible to prevent against it. stoping the thing from charging will only work (thats the normal protcection) will only work if the battery is the source of the heat.
