Ugh. Makes me sort-of glad I own a Nokia. With factory-original battery and
charger, too, thank-you-very-much.
Actually, I tell a lie - I own three Nokias - a pair of 2110i GSM800s with
aftermarket (i.e. not Nokia) batteries - and a 6210 with LiIon battery. If
only they weren't so damn slow to start up from cold.
