I need a new BL-08 for my 860. Does anybody have any experience with this ebay vendor? http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...62020&rd=1&rd=1

In my case I got another one of those Cameron Sino batteries to replace one which had died. The new one seemed dead on arrival. Actually it was fine, it fit in the compartment but the plastic around the terminals wasn't right and prevented getting a connection.

So I removed the little strip between the bottom of each terminal and the case seam... and the battery worked! I then did it with my older dead battery... and it was fine too! I guess I had only ever used it in my old 860...

Mine has simply stopped working after 2 weeks of use. It won't even boot up the Z any more. I guess I'll try that strip-removal and see if it's obstructed contacts. In any case I now have a BL-06 ordered through eBay and we'll see if that works.
