Hi guys,

as you know some of the Galaxy S4's batteries are defective (batteries are swelling), especially in Europe. Samsung acknowledged the problem and offers free replacement.

Here's something from Samsung (not official yet though AFAIK) :

You can check the Serial Number of your battery. If the S/N starts with BD1D and the date is in the range of 401 - 529 (1st april - 29th may), it's probably a defective battery.

Any battery with S/N between BD1D401XX and BD1D529XX needs replacement.

Hope this will help some of you.

So you had to pay half the price of a battery anyways. What a rip-off! Free means FREE aka paying NOTHING!

I agree! Especially since Samsung acknowledged the problem. It seems like the battery should come directly from them, but either way, you shouldn't pay a single cent for that replacement.
