Default best place to purchase oem battery

The battery on my Nexus 4 no longer holds a charge very well. Neither LG or Google directly sell replacement batteries from what I gather. Does anyone know a reputable source to purchase an OEM replacement battery? I'm considering this seller on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-BL-T5-BLT...item2a386ff701

but you just never really know what's legitimate these days. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Also,

Does anyone know where I can find an OEM Nexus 4 USB cable? I know any micro usb would suffice but I happen to like the aesthetic design of that cable.

LG service centers do provide battery replacements for a cost. I got mine replaced a couple of months back for around $22.

I got a legit battery from this guy for my brother's nexus 4. After a battery cycle so far no issues. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-OEM-LG-T...-/141174118723

One question, why did u guys replace battery? Burned? didn't keep charge as long? I'm thinking in replacing to have more battery life. I've had my phone for a year and a half and wonder if it will make enough difference to get one

Battery "life" of a lithium ion is around 500 cycles. If you've charged your phone daily, you've hit that 500 cycle mark. At this point, your battery has probably lost up to 20% of its capacity.
Relax, go nutz!
