Always use original Nokia batteries for your safety. To check that you are getting an original Nokia battery, purchase it from an
authorized Nokia dealer, look for the Nokia Original Enhancements logo on the packaging, and inspect the hologram label using
the following steps:
Successful completion of the four steps is not a total assurance of the authenticity of the battery. If you have any reason to
believe that your battery is not an authentic original Nokia battery, you should refrain from using it, and take it to the nearest
authorized Nokia service point or dealer for assistance. Your authorized Nokia service point or dealer will inspect the battery
for authenticity. If authenticity cannot be verified, return the battery to the place of purchase.
1. When looking at the hologram on the label, you should see the Nokia connecting hands symbol from one
angle and the Nokia Original Enhancements logo when looking from another angle.
2. When you angle the hologram left, right, down, and up, you should see 1, 2, 3, and 4 dots on each side
3. Scratch the side of the label to reveal a 20-digit code, for example, 12345678919876543210. Turn the
battery so that the numbers are facing upwards. The 20-digit code reads starting from the number at the
top row followed by the bottom row.
4. Confirm that the 20-digit code is valid by following the instructions at www.nokia.com/batterycheck.
To create a text message enter the 20-digit code, for example, 12345678919876543210, and send to +44 7786
National and international operator charges will apply.
You should receive a message indicating whether the code can be authenticated.
What if your battery is not authentic?
If you cannot confirm that your Nokia battery with the hologram on the label is an authentic Nokia battery, please do not use
the battery. Take it to the nearest authorized Nokia service point or dealer for assistance. The use of a battery that is not approved
by the manufacturer may be dangerous and may result in poor performance and damage to your device and its enhancements.
It may also invalidate any approval or warranty applying to the device.
