Default Battery without metal plate

I just received a Samsung branded battery for my Kaiser.
It does not have the metal plate that the OEM battery has.

I am planning on cutting a piece of foil the same size and inserting it under the battery.

Anyone try this?

I would not do this. I do see some contacts on the back of the phone. I do not know what they do. Putting foil down there by a bunch of other battery contacts is just asking for trouble!!

It's a Samusung battery no need to modify anything...

There must have been a reason that the OEM battery had this metal insert which presses up against the earthing contacts in the battery compartment. It could be for RF shielding or for a ground plane for the phone, GPS or WiFi antennas.

Cutting a piece of foil exactly the same dimensions as the OEM battery metal plate and sticking it onto the Samsung battery should effectively put you in the same position as the OEM battery.

I have just neatly cut a sheet of aluminium foil and stuck it on the the replacement battery. All seems to be working fine.
