    My Nokia mobile phone only charges to 1 bar even when having been charged
    for several hours.

    What does this indicate? Is the battery simply dead? What could have
    caused this?

    MUCH cheaper on the net.

    That's one thing I have always loved about Nokias,
    they use very few battery designs, so they are always
    readily available and dirt cheap.

    $2 to $5 for my htc diamond and lasted just as long as original.
    The nokias were a little bit dearer but a fraction of what they cost at
    the phone shop.

    $2 for the N95.

    I never did have any of the Nokia batterys die, and I kept each one for
    years too.
    Yeah, so cheap from the net that the price is academic.

    Haven't had any problem with any I have got.

    And that includes a double capacity battery for the laptop too.

    My missus needs a new battery for her Toshiba laptop. Last one I
    bought from ebay lasted 6 months. Have you a link for the vendor
    you have successfully used please?

    Fraid not, that one is in an email on a machine whose hard drive
    fell on its face and I havent got around to recovering the old emails
    off that machine.

    That was a few years ago now that I bought it. I have found that
    with stuff I try to buy again a few years later, that earlier supplier
    I was happy with is long gone. Just discovered that with cheap
    glasses from china.

    And it did. They are hopeless tho, the vertical legs of the
    saddle bridge don’t even contact the metal frame at all.
    The only connection with the metal frame is at the top,
    the horizontal part of the bridge. That’s not going to
    last very long with the legs in contact with the nose
    grease all the time.

    Their returns system is fucked too. They will give you
    a 50% discount on the replacement if you don’t like
    what they supplied, but you have to return the ones
    you didn’t like to the US and that costs most of the

    Main saving grace is that they are so cheap that
    its not big deal. I did get them to give me the
    50% discount on a new pair without having to
    return anything and I did plan to get a tinted
    pair if the first one was satisfactory, so I just
    ordered a new pair with tint. The frame was
    half the price of the saddle bridge pair,
    otherwise very similar in appearance.

    No big deal, they are both for use when out
    of the house and I will only be wearing the
    non tinted ones after dark so they should
    last fine since I don’t do that very often.

    No problems with the ones I had before that.
