Newegg just got back to me with this:



So, they are saying that Samsung made all the replacement batteries for these tablets back when they manufactured the tablets themselves and they are not making new batteries for it any more. Effing LAME!
I would have lookeed for any manufacture that that makes that physical size and mah. I had an Acer a 500 and got a 2013 battery for it last year. I just look for the same dimensions and size. Its a pain in bass.

I got a quote from a Samsung service center before I bought the battery on Newegg. They quoted me $150 to change out the battery and they wouldn't sell me a battery to let me do it myself. And, from what I know now, I have to believe they would have swapped in another 2 (or more) year old battery when they did it, which does me NO good.

That's the right battery. But, good luck getting one that was made since 2012.
