    I ordered a replacement battery and car charger for my S1 from eworld365 on Ebay and used the car charger for the first time this weekend and it completely killed my OEM battery. I was on the go all day so I had to use the car charger to keep my phone alive, worked fine throughout the day and when I went home to charge it nothing. I tried using different outlets and the same message kept coming up " USB does not have enough power to charge battery" (or something to that effect). I found that odd because I had plugged it into a wall outlet. Even tried the usb port on my PC and nothing. I have only had my S1 for just about a month and I have never over charged or short charged the battery. Long story short I took the battery back to Verizon and they are sending out a replacement. Just a head's up to those who are like me and are looking to find an inexpensive (i.e. cheap like me ) alternative to the in store brands.


    BTW this isn't meant to flame the seller just to inform people. The battery that I am now using is the battery that was included in the auction, so I don't think al of their products are crap.

    I bought my girlfriend a charger for her phone of eBay and its a piece of junk. The battery that was bundled in the auction is fine. But the charger, not so much.

    Duh.

    Always buy the real one that is designed for the phone.
