Re: Get spare parts in NYC (batteries)

2008-09-09 Thread Thorben Krueger
the batteries should be pretty standart stuff. I got the same form
factor in my nokia (although it is a bit shorter, the connectors are
in the right place and the width is the same). I suggest you should
simply walk into the next mobile accessory store with the battery to
get a compatible one. No need to import anything if I am correct.

 Hi,

 I'll be in New York beginning of October and would like to purchase 2 spare
 batteries for my FR - any hints on where I could get them? Is there a local
 distributor or buyers group with active orders, by any chance?

 Thanks,

 Stefan

Yes, I know as I also own quite a few BC-5s and remakes ;-)
But I'm looking specifically for the original ones to have the coulomb
counter and a working charge meter...

Personally, I don't want to spend $50 when all I really want is one spare
Freerunner battery.  Don't want/need the headset or pouch, would use the
extra batt if I had it but don't need it so would rather save the $$. 
(I've got two BL-5Cs and a BL-6C from my nokia 6600, so in a pinch I can
use one of them - I make sure one is always charged and tucked in the
armrest in my car - but as with Stefan I'd like to be able to see at least
an estimate of remaining charge)

I am using the pouch that came with my FR for the spare inner tube on
my bicycle and I have not opened the baggie with the headset yet so I
don't want more of them.

Batteries should be available separately as should other replacement parts.

I've bought one of these for my neo1973
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BL-6C-Battery-for-Nokia-2126i-6015i-6016i-E70-N-Gage-QD_W0QQitemZ350094841757QQihZ022QQcategoryZ20365QQcmdZViewItem
battery charge is reported accurately in Qtopia, although it wont
charge over USB

To charge it get one of these
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Battery-Charger-fit-Nokia-BL-4C-BL-5B-BL-5C-BL-6C-6080_W0QQitemZ220276820282QQihZ012QQcategoryZ20336QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262
same shop thus combining postage.

Yeah, I'd like an official FIC battery but if they don't sell them,
singly, for a reasonable price I'll go elsewhere.
The neo1973's came with headphones and a pouch so I don't need them.
