    I got the exact same one and had no problems at all.
    Did u test it out on another iPhone/iPod or ipodtouch?
    Maybe u got a defective one, contact monoprice. They'll take care of it quick.

    Wow, that sucks.
    Does it do the same thing on other iphones/ipods too? Did you test it out?
    No other option than send it back and get your money.

    I contacted a rep. They said "oh weve been having problems with those." Now they are just going to refund my money. If I hear of it getting fixed, ill buy again.

    still bad

    I too ordered this exact battery and it didn't work on my iPhone 3GS. Then I replaced it with another and it didn't work either. I received the 2nd one several days ago so either their stock is still bad, or they're not compatible with jailbroken iPhones, of which mine is.

    It's really too bad, as I had high hopes for this battery pack. If it would only work I'd be really happy.

    Works with my jb 3GS.
    But I got it a while ago. Sounds like they got a defective batch.
    They should at least test them before shipping.
