Most importantly, the BL-T5 sold by this store seems like a genuine part - it has identical detailing to the one that I removed from the phone, the printed text on it is crisp and layed out as expected. As a direct comparison, the price for the same part on Amazon is comparable (and in some cases higher), but the reviews set all kinds of alarm bells ringing for me. Although this phone is considered obsolete, I still love using it and didn't want to risk damaging it with a fake battery.

The phone was easily disassembled with a bit of care. The only problem that I had was removing the old battery which was glued into place and thus awkward to prise out. I ended up using some plastic case opening tools to part the battery from the adhesive, but take care here - my old battery was a bit softer (warm from use perhaps?) and a metal screwdriver could've punctured it, which could've meant a lithium fire. The new battery slotted into place with ease and seated perfectly. The phone closed up and It was all done in 20 minutes despite me being very careful.
The phone has been restored back to its day 1 battery performance for less than £10 (plus postage). Really pleased with the quality and price of this battery, and have peace of mind that it is an OEM part. (Posted on 04/01/2017)
