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.

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)

Skaties pēc ra˛otāj valstīm.
Un paskaties uz savu oficialo bateriju, saliidzini tāas.

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