The charger and battery came boxed together but in seperate cardboard packagings and in plastic bags. I wasnt even expecting that much for such an inexpensive product. The spare battery is rated at 1800 mAh (the OEM bettery that came with the phone is 1880), and is a slight bit slimmer than the OEM. The prongs on the charger flip in/out which is great for travel. The led on the charger is purple when charging the battery, and turns blue when completed. The USB port on the bottom charges my phone (with usb cable) pretty quickly, and you can charge both a spare battery and the phone at the same time. I havent had a chance to test the spare battery extensively, but ive used it for a good 3-4 hours with phone & data and it was down to about 50%. I once charged the spare battery overnight inside the phone (instead of in the charger) and it stopped charging at 60%. Not sure whats up with that, it could be that the phone is accustomed to the OEM battery instead? For the price, this thing can't be beat, push the spare battery in your pocket/purse and go, youll never have to worry about running out of juice again!
