Don't buy off-brand batteries. I personally only use ones from the OEM(LG in this case), but at the very least only buy from a reputable company. Like Anker, ZeroLemon, etc

At the moment, I'm just waiting patiently until more options become available.

I'd like to find an external charger and a quality 3000mAh in the $25 range. I really don't want to waste $10-$20 on an ebay chinese battery that doesn't work (or will degrade much faster than an OEM battery).

Yeah, I'd have to definitely agree with that. After all the phone is relatively new and in comparison to the likes of Apple and Samsung the batch of accessories and options we have are limited due to how LG dont have that much monopoly in terms of marketing power,

However I am really surprised as to how carphonewarehouse (as i live in the UK) dont have batteries or any retail shop at this moment.

Like you said external charger and good 3000mAh battery (preferably the orginal) is key to be honest.
