Nokia battery are defiantely better than the 3rd party batteries despite being rated lower interms of mh. Use enrgy saving if possible. You get a blue flashing light but batteyr lasts ages in standby.

Yeah you've probably read a few things about the N80's battery life. It's certainly not up to the standards of previous models, but if you're judicious with your use of it it should be fine.
Simple things like not leaving Bluetooth on if you're not planning on using it and remebering to charge the phone nightly.
Extensive use of the WiFi will mean that you don't quite get a full days use out of it, but in fairness many phones wouldn't survive terribly well if you spent the entire day on a phone call.

As for 3rd party batteries I'd stay away from them. I used to think that Nokia's insistance on using genuine batteries was just to ensure that they got the sales, however with recent stories of Sony Laptops bursting into flames and the like I feel a lot happier with a proper tested product rather than some cheap knock off from eBay.

Oh and welcome to the forums
