Fraudulent sale - these are NOT original Nokia Batteries! Buyer beware.
on 15 February 2010
Can't fault eBlink for fast shipping, however item arrived without any additional packaging (shipped lose in envelope) which raised my suspicion. Turns out the battery shipped was NOT an original BL-5J battery as advertised, it was a clever fake, holding significantly less charge than the original battery (between half and 2/3) and also fails to report its discharge properly. It does not slowly discharge and then prompt low battery warning, rather it shows as 100% charge until suddenly the device powers off with little to no warning.
I have nothing against 3rd party batteries when they are sold as such, however I like to make an informed decision and in this case I would only have purchased an original battery.
For a third-party battery, given the above information PRIOR TO PURCHASE, and not passed off as an original, it might be acceptable.
