… Mais avec un prix imbattable, la batterie made in RPC arrive avec un connecteur très très épais !

Finalement il m’a fallu me résigner à forcer très durement l’intromission avec deux paires de pinces !!!

Barbare mais efficace ! C’est le contraire de out ce que j’ai enseigné pendant des années : “le connecteur approprié doit toujours s’insérer en douceur” Ben là … NON !
