What do you all think about this 'genuine' Mini battery from China
http://cgi.ebay.com/Genuine-Battery-Del ... 1005r10834
$89 with shipping included (from China). Are these fakes? Are they rejects from the Dell Battery supplier? Or are they just 'borrowed' from the loading dock before getting to Dell?

If you don't mind delayed gratification . . .
Start here: http://planetee.com/events/
Scroll down to the aftermarket teardown Webcast, click, and go through all the sign-up rigmarole. Make up stuff about who you are if you want.
Watch patiently. Yes, Robin's reading her script, but she also wrote it, so it's okay.
There are some good pictures of what some Chinese pirates have done to screw up some lithium batteries that will make you question whether you want to risk having a knockoff around.
It's not like everything's this way, It's that you *don't know.*
If I'm remembering right, the stuff toward the end about the defibrillators is particularly upsetting.
