Default ZVM Battery Options

I recently went through the exercise of trying the Cameron-Sino 1700 mAh battery, model CS-DA006SL. It seems 97% of all sellers are offering this one for the ZVM. I had the same experience (ZVM not recognizing the new battery) as described in thread 17663 titled "Charging problem after replacing battery... ". The eBay seller was very cooperative and sent a replacement promptly, but that one behaved exactly the same. I returned both for a refund. My original battery is back in and functioning fine. I am still in the market for a replacement. 1700 mAh is certainly attractive, compared to the original 1250, but if it doesn't work...

I have compiled info on 3 replacement batteries:
Mfr: SKC (OE suppiler)
Model: LPCS285385
Specs: 3.7 V, 1280 mAh<O</O
Dim: 2.8x53x85<O</O
mfr url: (professional & competent)<O</O
to buy: difficult to locate sellers, Google “LPCS285385”, eBay<O</O<O</O

Mfr: Cameron-Sino (CS)<O</O
Model: CS-DA006SL<O</O
Specs: 3.7 V, 1700 mAh<O</O
mfr url: (well defended)<O</O
to buy: Google “BA20603R79914” or “CS-DA006SL", eBay
*The lastest Firmware version that will work with this battery is v1.41.01<O</O<O</O

Mfr: Cameron-Sino (CS)<O</O
Model: CS-CRT05SL
Specs: 3.7 V, 1400 mAh<O</O
mfr url: (well defended)<O</O
to buy: Google “CS-CRT05SL“, eBay

Mfr: Chinese, marketed by Osprey-Talon under HQRP line<O</O
Model: 01070770002<O</O
Specs: 3.7 V, 1700 mAh<O</O
mfr url: Google "01070770002" and good luck<O</O
to buy: &

If you Google the OE part no. for the battery "BA20603R79914" virtually all the hits are for vendors selling the CS battery.

I may try the 3rd option out of morbid curiosity, but I expect in the end I suspect I will ultimately replace with the OE battery.</O<O</O
