Hi everyone,

I've been thinking about replacing my battery and a quick search on Ebay led me to find some sellers who claim to have a 3700 mAh batteries.
Now my first response is to not trust these batteries and just get an original one, which I probably will, but I'm really curious if anyone here has tried one?

Here are a couple of links to these 3700 mAh batteries:

What are your thoughts about these?

Don't get any battery that isn't a OnePlus Battery. If you have a choice, never go for the battery that is advertised with a different amperage.

Go for a 3400mAh battery, better if it's a OnePlus original. Since our devices uses Dash Charge, which is only on OnePlus devices, it's best to go for an original, since we cannot know what effect DC will have on third party batteries.

Unless your battery has degraded lower than 50% and you need an emergency replacement till your original arrives, these batteries should not be trusted. There even may be a risk of high thermals and degrading your other phone hardware too.

Exactly my thought. Was just wondering if anyone was mad enough to actually try one of these. You never know, maybe they are unexpectedly good

Ditto, I judt called OnePlus (US support line) and they told me they don't cell the battery or any replacement parts, I would have to send the phone for service to their authorized center.

So does anyone know where I can an original, third party seller one?

Have a look and read on the product page of their website:

All I can say is, it's better than the tired one I took out!

I just replaced my OP3T battery with a replacement from here:
https://www.mobilesupplies.nl/oneplu...origineel.html
It says it's an original and so far it works like a charm. Will report back on how it performs.

What does the difference between "rated" and "typical" means? I don't understand.

Rated means how much it is designed to have, and tested is the actual amount of MAh in the battery. With every battery there is a difference between rated and tested. 3300MAh tested is actually really good.
I wonder how much the original batteries are tested for.
