I'm thinking of buying a new battery for my Nexus 4. The battery life isn't terrible, but the last 30% drops very fast. Like 5% at the time.

Where I can buy a new battery that really is Genuine? I know that there are tons of sellers in Ebay who says their batteries are Original but how can I tell? Is there any holograms on the battery or any other specific characteristics I should keep my eye on?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3I2APAM0V9MAJ I found this seller who ships to Finland. It costs £25.43 including shipping or ~35€/$40 and I think it is too much for a battery.

I would suggest replacing it from the official LG Service Center nearby, it'll be more cost effective than buying online. Atleast for me it was very cost effective

http://www.spareslg.com/bateria-lg-e...c61898601.html 100% original and cheap. If they wont send the battery to Filand (according to your profile) contact them.

Thanks for the replies. Nearest official LG Service center is 200km away so I can't visit there. But I send them email asking how much it would cost if they shipped the battery to me.

Curl3w, I checked the sit and they will ship to Finland but there wasn't any info how it would cost. Also when I tried to order it, it said "Shipping price not available, you will receive shipping price by email after order". So I emailed them asking about the shipping. We'll see.

£76? For that kind of money that battery should have infinite amount of energy.

I don't think that the battery in that thread is Original. As I said, I'm looking for battery that _really_ is original. I found an authorized LG Spareparts seller here in Finland. If I recall it cost 17€+shipping (23€ or 24€ in total or ~$25-$26) so it's quite reasonable price and I can be sure it is original and it will have warranty.

I recently bought a new one on newegg.com. it seemed pretty genuine to me it didn't come in any fancy packaging but it did have the LG logo on it. been using it for a couple days and it works great!
