The product literature, containing a photograph of the BST-30, reveals that it is a rechargeable battery made of a lightweight lithium ion with 670mAh. It is compatible with the Sony Ericsson T226 and allows for extensive talk and standby time.

The applicable subheading for the BST-30 standard mobile phone battery will be 8507.80.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “ Electric storage batteries including separators therefor, whether or not rectangularparts thereof: Other storage batteries: Other.” The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
