Found cell phone battery, how do i know its safe!

Asked by kymberleighh (6points) October 9th, 2010

I have the Palm Pixi. I have had it for about 10 months and the battery is beginning to slowly die. I found another Palm Battery(same one as my phone) randomly but I don’t know where it came from, if it is bad, or if it is safe to put in my phone… So I have no idea how to test it out at all…
I want to know because if it does work fine, I pretty much have a second battery for my phone, which would be amazing.
Please provide as much info as possiblee. Thankyouu.

If it’s the same model battery then it’s safe to put into your phone; the worst that can happen is that it won’t work.

If it’s a different model battery that just looks the same as the one in your phone then it’s a little dicey and I might not risk it without a little more investigation. I would start by comparing the model numbers on the batteries.

jery has it right, there’s not much more I can add, unless your stuck in siberia with no way out and need a mcgyver solution.
