    Word or warning for anyone looking to buy extra batteries on EBay. Don't do it! I purchased (2) spare batteries and an extra battery charger off ebay for $42. It took 15 days to get here and then when it got here it didn't even work! When I put in the battery it was a very very tight fit. Tried powering on and when I pushed the power button the indicator light in the top right hand corner kept flashing red and green and wouldn't power on. Has anyone else purchased these batteries and actually had success out of them?

    Report the shady dealer and get a charge back.

    Take heart. Now you can get an official google replacement battery from their web store for $25. I just hope their not rushing that thing to market. :/

    PayPal rocks!!! unless your a seller.. there is a very EASY way to get ripped off. Without going into detail.. we've got a few empty boxes sent back to us which was enough for PayPal to pull money out of our account and refund it to the empty box sender. NOTHING that we could do. And we pay at least $600 a month in Paypal fees. :(

  10. i just say that because of quicker shipments, no exchange rates, and its easier and less time for paypal to challenge a purchase within the states
