If you have used Nokia BL-4C battery than you must have owned some of the best classic Nokia phones, or to be precise, some of these Nokia phones: 1006, 2651, 5100, 6100, 6101, 6102, 6102i, 6103, 6126, 6131, 6133, 6300, 6300i, 6301, 6170, 7205, 7270, 7610. If you are still using one of the phones mentioned previously, you are probably aware of bad battery life that has struck your phone, and it is maybe time to replace it. After Nokia sold the D&S business to Microsoft, and Microsoft happily dismantled it, it has become hard to find an original Nokia battery. It seems that Nokia is still making those batteries since the photo of new packaging of the BL-4C h just emerged. Battery’s cover design differs from the original one (or older version that we are used to), so does the retail package. But the Nokia colour and visual identity of the packaging is still there. Strange enough is to see that the manual still has the original battery cover scheme print inside.
Really cant say if this one is original or just a great copy, but battery seems to be produced on 15 January, 2017 what suggests that people are still using older Nokia devices, and probably there is quite a big number of devices still in use since the battery for it is still made. This fact can be used to reason investors to give substantial sum of money to bring Nokia brand back into smart and feature phone business.
Check out the photos of the battery below.
I am not sure if future Nokia 3310 will use this battery since it has only 850 mAh, but seems like Nokia/HMD is still going to produce spare parts for older models, which is nice.
