Mobile Phone Battery Prices

My wife needed a new battery for her Samsung Galaxy S5 so I did a Google search last Thursday.

One result was for Battery World at $49.95, another was for an eBay seller for around $10.00 but they were out of stock and another was for an eBay seller for $14.98 including free return postage so I ordered it from them.

It arrived today and it is labelled as Samsung as listed.

Only 30% of the price at a battery store and presumably even way less than at a phone repair shop or service agent.

I’ve got 2 (brand new & unused) you are welcome to have: bought them for my S5, but had to upgrade my phone before they were delivered!

And unfortunately, Samsung phones (after S5’s) no longer have a removable battery…

There could be range of reasons including grey market, direct from China, or the capacity of the battery.

I have ordered after market batteries for iPhones that supposedly have double the capacity of the EOM, and were ¼ of the price.

The most important thing is: Caveat Emptor.

It is a genuine Samsung battery identical to the original.

My wife charged it last night and her phone is working fine once again.

Great to hear it worked make sure you do a test - full charge & discharge with a heavy use like watch a video with scree set to full brightness just to see it has smooth drain pattern on battery.

Which seller did you use I am researching getting a replacement S4 and S5 battery on ebay as well. (Not everyone can afford the latest smartphones)
