Beware of any seller that makes you pay return shipping on a new 
battery that is received DOA.
That is a tipoff that the seller is crap and their batteries are crap!
I've been burned by that one several times ( different sellers, all bad )
Ask about this before buying.
The honest sellers will ship out a replacement and then issue a 
credit when the DOA is returned.
