Wow.  After reading this I went to check the BL-5c from my old Nokia 6600,
and couldn't find it.  I also have a BL-6c and a new BL-5c clone I ordered
online a couple months ago.  That last one was on the desktop
charger, and was almost twice as thick in the middle as it should be... 
extremely pillow-shaped.

Needless to say I relocated it to the middle of the concrete garage floor
away from anything flammable. (6-ft radius :)

Thanks for the heads up.  Apparently whoever made this clone battery, it
has the same or a similar flaw to the genuine Nokia ones made by Matsushita
in 2006.  (always assuming it's not just someone selling off the portion of
the 46 million made which never reached consumers, which actually seems
pretty believable)  But the timing is just remarkable.
