came across this today, I don't know how good or otherwise their service is. they sell batteries for many PDAs.

The BL08 would also fit the C1000/C3x00 wouldn't it?
$15.00 for a 1700 mah battery isn't bad at all.

However, I tend to be concerned about the quality.
It doesn't take much to brick a z.

It's definitely after-market, but I've used one for over six months in my 5500 and I've had very good experience with it. Hard to beat the price when they have it on half-price clearance. The only bite is the $6 shipping charge, but it comes bubble-wrapped in a box.

The battery is probably ok.
I bought an after market battery (from a different source) for my cell phone a couple years ago, and it works very well.

I guess I might be tempted if it would fit my C1000 (and if someone else wants to give one a try first) smile.gif

Too miserable, after buying two packs of them I found this thread. I have got the batteries, two, neither will work with my C3200. The flash is blinking. sad.gif Too miserable ...
I think there must be no eletricity internally, I will try to charge with some other charger to see whether it can be used or not.

Hey Chyang, sorry to hear about your situation. sad.gif You just re-confirm my suspicion that they were selling out of date/bad batteries. I had tried a total of 6 batteries from them and none would charge at all even with my sharp external charger. Whatever you do, don't agree to an exchange as you will get more dead batteries and waste your time and shipping charges sending the package back and forth.

hi, ml8:
I did some hack to the battery and now it works.

I found a compatible battery producer in China

They have EA-BL06 and EA-BL08 batteries, the price seems to be $16-$18 or so. It seems to be good. Don't know the shipping to worldwide, how much will it cost.
