Hello everyone,

Further to my last post, I received the replacement battery for my Nokia N91 today. I tried to charge it with my phone's charger without result. On impulse I phoned Steve Nutt and he suggested I try an older charger using the N91's adaptor. I did this and heard the beep advising me the battery was charging. I confirmed this with Talks, which will report the battery's status even with the phone switched off. It was fully charged in about four hours.

I decided to do the same with the battery I thought was dead and had the same result. The phone is now running using the first battery, so now I have a spare. I have purchased a new charger for the phone so I don't have to keep using the adaptor.

My advice is: If your phone is one like the N91 with a smaller pin for the charging plug and the battery isn't charging, try using the adaptor with an older-style charger. It's amazing what you don't think off when you have a problem!

Best wishes,

Clive Pallett
