Seems better than mine... I definitely need a replacement... And I am morally opposed to simply replacing the whole phone frequently, due to the resources required like rare Earth's and tantalum.

I need help finding one as well.

Just like you guys in the US, struggling to find a decent one with reviews. Looked on Amazon, Ebay and a few other places.

If anyone has any links to one with good reviews that would be great

As much as I hate to admit it, I don't think we will. Our phones battery is not removable and it was never intended by LG for it to be replaced. Which means that the only batteries we are gonna get is dodgy ones probably. The last thing I need is buying an 'original', battery and waking up the next morning to find a burnt hole where my phone once was

Well, I just replaced my battery with this one: http://www.amazon.de/Akku-BL-T5-Goog...s=nexus+4+akku
I am sorry, that the page is German - but you can see, that the selling shop is the official LG Electronics Shop on Amazon

thought these phones use a polymer battery which has a very high charge and discharge cycle.

You can try checking your local LG service center if they have it. That is where I got mine for about $25, but I'm in Thailand though so YMMV.
