I got hold of an original HTC Desire 310 battery. It seems to work just fine, but when I ran the speaker test in the CSD app, it produced a sound for about 0,5s, and then silence. Reboot, power cycle, nothing mattered, not a single beep was produced by the speaker. I really though the speaker was now broken.

Well, you've guessed it, swapping the battery for the original Jolla, and voila, the speaker works perfectly again. Swapping again, with the HTC battery: no sound.

WHY? HOW?

No seriously, what can cause this? Even with a charger connected it doesn't work, so it doesn't seem to be a shortage of available power. (The battery isn't new)

As my polarcell started to loose power I ordered one of these - fits perfect the label says for Jolla 1 and HTC Desire - and on the battery is printed made in China - it looks exactly like the polarcell one so I would say that it's the same battery just with another label ...
But it works as expected ... the polarcell lasted one year before it lost power ... we'll see ...

Hi,
On Polish auction service Allegro it's possible to buy original battery (it looks like original) for Jolla JP-1301. It's cheap, it costs 5EUR.
http://allegro.pl/nowa-oryginalna-ba...649316614.html
Seller has 47 batteries.

If someone need spare battery and need help (site is in Polish or need ship abroad) I can help with that.
I have to admit I don't know the seller so I can't guarantee it's original. One Polish guy have bought it and said it looks and work like original.

First update
After one month of use I'm still satisfied with this battery - the uptime is a bit longer as with the polarcell one (subjective) and no sudden reboots so far (but that has been the same when I replaced the one year old original with the Polarcell a year ago ... after 6 months the reboots reappeared first every few weeks and after 11 months nearly every second day)
Anyway - one battery per year seems still ok to me at this price level ...

Yesterday I received battery from auction I mentioned in post http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...&postcount=164
I charged it, measure voltage and it looks like it's original one.

atlochowski was kind enough to purchase one of these batteries for me, test it, and send it to me in The Netherlands. I thought a public Thank You! was the least I could do.

Thank You!
