    So I am tired of my battery life sucking when i am cruising on my storm so often. I was screwing around on Ebay today and found this killer buy!!!! It comes with 2 Storm batteries, a cradle to charge a battery without being in the phone, a USB cable, screen protector, and a neck lanyard! I could care less about the last three item just the two batteries and a cradle to charge a battery is killer. Your probably guessing like $100 or more right? I was, then i bought the whole thing for $20. Ya holy crap huh!

    I just hope its everything it say it is! Ill let you know when it gets here if it was worth it! Oh ya its free shipping too!

    here is the link! 2x Battery USB AC Charger for BlackBerry Storm 9500 2B - eBay (item 370186213973 end time Apr-13-09 13:17:45 PDT)

    So how many pieces and parts of your Storm (or other BB) were made in China? You say you wouldn't buy it but I think you already did.

    ...because although your device or phone is full of "Chinese Crap"

    It always amazes me when people say things like this. Nearly everything you have is either made in Asia or full of parts made in Asia. Look at your car or truck, clothes, computer, t.v., stereo, mP3 player, and I could go on forever and not complete the list.

    You say "It's chinese crap!! I wouldn't buy it!!", yet you have a Storm or other products full of this same "crap" . Sounds like you are either a hypocrite of very uninformed.

    Get over it already

    Looks like a lot of people have bought this and left positive feedback on Ebay. Please do let us know when you get the items if they are as good as advertised.

    I bought a extended battery from Seidko, and have had no issues. True, it was not $20.

    Bruce, make the next post be a review of how good/bad the stuff works. I've purchased batteries from 3rd party overseas stores and been ripped off. Lasted a week and then died completely or only was able to be recharged 20-30 times before not holding any charge whatsoever.

    Appreciate the heads up, now let us know if it's worth it. You wouldn't want to be recommending trash to your BB buddies, now would you

    The funny thing is, our BlackBerry OEM battery found in the Storm, clearly states that it's "Made In China".

    The posted batteries look like "Chinese crap" to me. True, there are many good parts/items made in China to high standards (for the auto industry, for example) but you get what you pay for with the cheaper stuff, usually aftermarket parts.
    Probably find out in a few months the batteries let off toxic substance like what's currently happening with Chinese drywall, or last years pet food or the painted toys of a couple years ago or... or... or...

    My point is: There CAN be high quality stuff made in & imported from China but their 'crappy' reputation precedes them in most cases.
    But we'll take that risk for 1/5 the price of quality in most cases.

    whether the batteries suck or not,
    THANX FOR THE HEADS UP!!!!

    looking closely at the photo, notice the little white stickers on the batteries that r supposed to signify water damage, they r showing the tell tale red line on them. doesnt mean they r junk, just that they got wet. if those truly r pics of real product.

    Those pictures are probably just for example. Id be surprised if you even got batteries that had the stickers on them.

    Well I guess he's not going to buy the Otterbox, Jawbone headsets, any apple computer or iPods basically any kind of electronics. lol. Hey wait the computer he's using to post that remark is probably made in China too. Trust me chinese products are getting better every year. Welcome to the new world.

    Keep in mind the billions of dollars of product that comes from China each year, and then take the percentage that is truly crappy. I would venture to say that the percentage that is a true failure is quite small. We only here of the crappy things because of our sensationalist media.

    I'd also like to remind everyone what Americans thought of Japanese crap in the 60's and 70's? How things have changed with that one.

    It is ignorant to judge a product based on the country it was produced,

    To the OP, good find and I look forward to hearing how the product works out!
