Want to pass my S2 onto the wife when I upgrade and I'd like her to have a new battery.

Tried picking one on on Trademe but it is far worse than my existing 2 year old battery.

Anyone got either a trusted Trade Me source or an alternative "local" source for batteries. I'm happy to may a little more for something that actually works as expected.

Checked with them but they don't appear to have any S2 batteries any more.




Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

Heh, well they're guaranteed to be official coming from a repair company, not like ebay or Trademe :) Ask yourself, how much do you love your wife? Would you be willing to give her a potentially deadly fake Samsung battery or give her the real deal, I hear most of the stuff in their bags is combustible heh
