Default Stock battery replacement

My original Galaxy W has experienced some bloating and I am looking to replace it with an official Samsung battery. Their website does not stock any batteries for the Galaxy W.

A quick look on Google has turned up one on ebay for around 9. This is coming from the UK and looks to be an official Samsung battery. At the moment, it's probably the one that I will go for.

Does anybody have any experiences of shopping for official Samsung batteries? Especially in the UK.

You could also try Amazon they can be cheaper than ebay sometimes

Thanks for the suggestion. The only official Samsung battery I can find on Amazon is 13. If it had a load of reviews I would probably consider it over the ebay option, in terms of trust, but it only has one review.

I am in the UK. I bought one of these:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Or...item416979566a

It is definitely a genuine, original item. No hassle with the transaction and my phone is much happier now
(the only thing I did notice is that the new battery has an older date of manufacture than the one it was replacing - not that it has made any difference to how well it works)
Galaxy S3 - Imperium 26.0 - XXUGNA8
Asus Nexus 7 (2012) - Mahdi-Rom 2.5
Galaxy W - Liquid Smooth v2.9 - Madridii Kernel v3.2
MK808B - 4.2.2 - mk808b_v401j2

Skaties pēc raotāj valstīm.
Un paskaties uz savu oficialo bateriju, saliidzini tāas.

Look at the company, which has made the battery and the design of it.
