Safety of Nokia batteries confirmed

Posted on Tuesday, November 18 2003 @ 17:26:40 CET by

A new test done by the Belgian consumer organisation Test-Aankoop has proven that original Nokia batteries are fully protected against shortcircuiting and thus safe for consumer use. Two weeks ago Test-Aankoop released a report in which they claimed that some Nokia batteries were unsafe, unfortunately they had used a few non-original batteries.

  As non-original batteries may present a safety risk to the user, Nokia recommends that consumers only purchase and use original Nokia batteries. Measures that ensure this include: using only original battery included in the Nokia phone sales package, buying new batteries only from authorized Nokia dealers, avoiding purchase of batteries without proper sales packaging and avoiding low priced batteries. One way that consumers can identify non-original batteries is if the following text is written on the battery:

  • Replacement battery for...
  • NOK (with model number)
  • NK (with model number)
  • "For use with..."
  • "Compatible with..."
  • "For Nokia..."
