    I saw this battery listing on ebay for $15... much cheaper than any new OEM battery listings. Good feedback by the seller and coming from CA I bought it.

    Looks visibly different than the OEM battery, didn't even fit into my phone correctly without forcing it in. It is lighter than the oem battery, and worst of all it won't charge in the phone. I get the message it won't charge because its not a motorola accessory. I email'd the seller so we'll see what he says.

    thanks for the heads up, but let us know how it comes out. Could be an honest mistake.

    Almost all the ebay bats are the same I bought 4 for $19 and 1 wouldn't charge so probably bad battery in your case

    well he email'd me back saying he'd be shipping another battery. I'll let you guys know if this one ends up being a real OEM one or not
