Maybe I just create a "spares" product?
with 3 batteries, and some other goodies thrown in?
What goodies would go in that bag?

Just my $0.02 here, but:
*Should* work, or *definitely* work? I'd rather not buy a 'maybe'
battery and would rather buy a branded battery direct from OM...
But if enough people test these BL-?C batteries and prove they work just
fine and nobody has any incidents related to a Nokia battery, then okay,
I'll look for a local vendor selling them if I need a spare battery.
I ran into the same issue with my iRiver digital music player, I needed
a replacement, but iRiver didn't make this model any more so
after-market batteries were all that were left. In the end, an iPod
replacement battery did the job, but the polarity on the jumper header
needed to be switched before plugging it in and reassembling the case. I
only ordered the battery once I'd read about 20 personal accounts that,
yeah, this particular battery worked just fine, no incidents.
Just the 'realist' in me coming out to play. :o)
