    I need to replace the lithium battery in my PDA.
    Normal battery outlets get ~$40 for the thing.
    Can get a Chinese one on EBAY for $10.

    Anybody got experience with Chinese batteries?
    I don't have a problem with 80% of the life for 25%
    of the price. But I do want a reasonable runtime.

    I hear about exploding Chinese cellphone batteries.
    But I haven't seen any actual data comparing Chinese
    exploding frequency with brand-name exploding frequency.
    Sounds like a lot ot FUD to me; but would be nice to see
    some data.

    For all I know, they all come out of the same factory.

    Thanks, mike
