Capacity and manufacturers

Furthermore, the characteristics of the batteries for BlackBerry needed primarily to pay attention to the capacity, measured in mAh (milli-ampere-hours), the size, and the manufacturing company.

  • Original batteries BlackBerry — this is a battery that you have been supplied an original phone, no better and no worse. This battery is usually marked RIM BlackBerry type BAT-30615-006 for J-M1 battery. This is the best option for replacing the battery has a good job, if it suits you.
  • Proprietary batteries BlackBerry known brands such as Seidio — often this option is better than the original in its characteristics, while maintaining its size and quality on the same high level. Proprietary batteries are more expensive, but last longer and longer hold the charge without regular recharging, which is convenient for business trips or other trips.
  • Non-original batteries (batteries-up) for BlackBerry — produced by unknown companies, as a rule, in China. It is a cheaper analog of the original battery, they have a shorter life and do not guarantee reliability. Batteries-up for new BlackBerry models (J-M1, F-M1 , F-S1 , etc.) for their work usually requires the prior "reconfiguration"; , older types of batteries do not need to be alone and work immediately. It should be remembered that not all batteries copy the same, there is less qualitative, and there are better, when they are the same appearance. In our shop InfoResheniya we have selected for you the most good alternative to the original battery — and more reliable, and does not require prior "reconfigure".
  • High-capacity battery — how they are branded with the Japanese production, and non-proprietary. The main difference for high-capacity batteries BlackBerry — usually larger in size and therefore in its bundled and include additional battery cover, the battery is capable to fit larger size. The capacity of the battery may be 3000 mAh and above, and accordingly, the operating times is much more than the original battery. It's your choice if you are not afraid to add your BlackBerry to 5 mm thickness. Proprietary high-capacity battery, according to tradition, are reliable and guarantee a long service life. Non-original, the Chinese, are less original, but still fulfill their main purpose, that is, increase the time of the smartphone without recharging.
  • Gold Battery The batteries and the like, with an increased capacity, but do not require an additional cover. Cheating on which "carried" many ignorant people BlackBerry. More — below.

How to distinguish the original battery from the battery BlackBerry copy?

To date, there are real problems with the battery purchase: to distinguish the original BlackBerry battery from copies of the battery is quite difficult even experienced, not to mention the usual buyer — original batteries often manufactured in China (but under Canadian BlackBerry control) with the inscription «Made in China "on the package, and third-party manufacturers have learned to make such copies, which look the same and do not require pre" reconfigure ". Moreover, sometimes even the sellers do not know what kind of batteries they sell, the original or a copy.

What advice can be given to the buyer? For starters, think about the fact that the original battery can not be cheap. Then you should pay attention to the packaging, which should be a bar code with proprietary code BlackBerry, for example, BAT-30615-006 for J-M1 battery. Also, you should look closely at the color and pattern on the battery — they must be clear. There is another subtlety: sometimes the batteries copy weigh slightly less than the original, but it can only be determined with the help of scales with an accuracy of at least 1 gram. Therefore, the only reliable criterion is the battery supplier — you can ask the seller, where the battery, the battery for the original — BlackBerry it should be a supplier of the United States, Japan or Europe.

So far we have not met with cases of counterfeiting of branded batteries, as, for example, Japanese Seidio. Therefore, if you are still in doubt, choose a brand battery.

Important Update: distinguish the original battery for BlackBerry from the battery is not easy to copy ("Brazen" batteries-up to BlackBerry, or pseudo- "Made in Japan").

True and not true about «Gold Battery» for BlackBerry

And there is no truth at all, «Gold Battery» BlackBerry — for this deception. Or do you think, whether at RIM BlackBerry or Seidio opportunity to release the battery of the same size, but the larger capacity, they have not done so?

Gold Battery для BlackBery Z10 — обманGold Battery для BlackBery 9800/9810 — обман

Gold Battery для BlackBery 9900, 9860 — обман

Yes, gold upakovochka — and people already "wilt". Just think how many people have been deceived. On the other hand, demand creates supply: if you want to be cheated — please, but only pay for it!

We conducted tests. Gold Battery «holds" charge less than the original battery, smaller copy, and quickly breaks down: every day, the battery life will all shrink and shrink. What's the catch? Remove the gold upakovochku (gently pry with a sharp object), and read the real capacity of the battery. Surprised? We think that very soon a manufacturer of popular "golden batteries" and this mistake will take into account, and under cover will show off the same "huge" power of milli-ampere-hours.

On the video Gold Battery for iPhone 5, but BlackBerry — all the same. Sadness.

Once again, the main difference between high-capacity batteries for BlackBerry — they are bigger (and are due to the size of a large capacity), and therefore in its scope of delivery includes an extra battery cover and capable to fit the oversized battery.

Let's do a little comparison.

How to "reconfigure" Battery-up

It has already been mentioned, the batteries copy BlackBerry for new models (J-M1, F-M1, F-S1, etc.) for their work usually requires the prior "reconfigure" the older types of batteries do not need to be alone and work immediately. This migration is called "transmigration of the soul" or "chipping".

If you purchased the battery, requiring the "reconfiguration", after inserting it into the smart phone it will not work immediately, but will show a crossed battery. To install the battery so the battery, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the original battery from BlackBerry smartphone and insert your new battery
  2. After appearing on the cross X screen, remove the new battery
  3. Insert the original battery in the device-to-box, which was complete with a new battery (see. Picture), in the position of «Original Battery»
  4. Insert a new battery in the same device in the position of «New Battery»
  5. Lamps on the device blinked a few seconds and turn off
  6. Now insert the new battery in the smart phone, it will work

Unfortunately, such "transplant the soul" has to do not only on first use, but sometimes during the operation. It's not very comfortable, because I always have to carry the original battery in case of re-performing the procedure.

If the "inflated" the battery:
