Hi, I was wondering if someone on here bought replacement batteries on AliExpress and could provide some feedback is it worth or they are selling low quality products that will lose it's capacity or explode, leak by 1 month of using?

I'm very much at a new battery stage and would mind some first hand experience, or ANYWHERE I can buy quality batteries that haven't sat around for years or half ruined...

I would be interested to hear as well. From what I see on Ebay/Amazon, many batteries are pulls from old phones, even when they are advertised as new (there is glue on the back, etc). Which means unless your battery is totally dead it won't offer much improvement. Particularly if they are abused by sitting on shelves for a year discharged.

I do know the OEM battery has a manufacturing date on the bottom, however I really doubt they are still being made.

I have looked for batteries made by reputable 3rd party makers like Anker but they seem to cater to the removable battery phone, not internal.

I don't care about it being original, but it sure needs to be good. Seems we have no options so far.

My Nexus 4 battery died and I had to change it.

The first battery I got was from https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00SMMFWZQ
It worked well but after 3 months, I was back to 50% capacity. It seemed like a reconditioned battery. It had a date on it which was January 2015. However the label had been tampered with, some sections were blacked out with a marker.

So I bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00X1USMBA
This seems to be a new battery made out of new cells.
After one month this battery still holds 100% charge.

I bought the one mentioned in the battery thread in this forum back in January of 2016 and have not had any issues.

Aliexpress still sells original OEM LG batteries marked with Jan 2016 Date. I thought LG stopped making these batteries some time ago.
