Not sure if I'm stronger than average but the battery case closes fine for me, just a bit snug:) On the other hand, it is just a bit short so I used some cellophane tape and a sliver of card board from a notepad to create a shim that makes it fit nicely. And yes, what Nokia asks on its website is ridiculous! I got mine from a vendor through Amazon for around $10 US. There were others selling for less but I was not sure the battery was really Nokia. Apparently there are groups selling fake Nokia batteries that are of poor quality. Delbert > I just grabbed a friends431A and popped it in and it fit perfectly, only the contacts were tii high. Maybe the lgip430a is different? If not, then it will not fit. It has been annoying to research this because there is a shortage of good pictures of the contacts. _______________________________________________ Qi Hardware Discussion List Mail to list (members only): discussion at lists.en.qi-hardware.com Subscribe or Unsubscribe: http://lists.en.qi-hardware.com/mailman/listinfo/discussion
