I have a Razr V3 that is about 5 years old and the battery was not holding a charge for more than about a day, even with almost no use. While looking for a replacement I ran across this pkg deal and am glad I did. It's less than just the battery almost anyplace I found on the net. So far the battery has lasted as long as four days still with 3 bars on the battery indicator before I plugged the charger back in (still with very limited use. I just don't use my phone much.) I only wish I had found this deal sooner because I had already bought a 12v charger. Well now I can keep a charger in both of my vehicles and don't have to remember to move it from one to the other.

I found this incredible deal and all the components actually work!! I found it hard to believe that I got a three for one deal. This battery seems to die out quickly but I think that is a V3- Motorola issue so its good to walk around with a backup.
I own a small company and we have 6 RAZRs and I purchased combo packs for all of them. Every car charger stopped working in less than a year! The batteries work great in the beginning, but they all failed to hold a decent charge with less than 6 months of use. The OEM batteries lasted much, much longer ¿ even the ones that are more than a year old. If you use your bluetooth, forget about any battery life - it's amazing how fast you will go from your first battery low beep to completely dead! The one bright spot is that the home charges have worked flawlessly. My recommendation is to stick with OEM batteries and car chargers and if you want to save a few bucks, buy the generic home charger. You will be money ahead in the long run.
I havn't run into a Mini USB-b car charger that hasn't broken yet. I've used the Motorola and several aftermarket brands and they all seem to lose connectivity after and short period of use. These feel different on connection. I wasn't expecting much when I bought it but maybe this will do the trick. Either way I bought the package for the battery and it works as well as the OEM.
The wall charger and the car charger worked flawlessly, as I'd expect from any simple mini-usb power emulator. What I was a little upset about was the battery, which was the real reason I bought this package. When I attempted to insert the new battery into my MOTO-RAZR V3 phone, the plastic cover on the battery itself was wrapped too loose, causing the back cover on the phone to refuse to latch back on. I didn't return the battery, as I needed the wall/car chargers as well - which was a good value by itself - I just wished the battery actually FIT the phone as advertised.
I have already recommended this package to friends because the price and value cannot be beat. I used to think that I had to replace these components with ones from the same brand as my telephone, but I've learned lately that the wireless dealers are using these same products or similar and charging twice as much or more!
