    My batteries are not lasting as long as they used to. Has anyone had luck buying an extended battery? I've seen some on ebay that claim 6000mh which is double but they include a new back cover because its thick so I'd lose the nice leather-look. Are there any extended ones or higher capacity batteries that use the stock cover? As far as where to buy them the prices on ebay & amazon are pretty cheap even for the stock one and I wonder if these are good batteries like not old stock.

    I've been following this thread on xda about the extended batteries: http://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/accessories/2-extended-batteries-test-t3320662

    Semi tempted myself, but I have a potentially unwarranted distrust of 3rd Party battery brands.

    I picked up an official LG battery and charging unit. It comes with a small plastic box for the spare battery which I just carry about in my bag/pocket if I'll be out for long enough to think I'll warrant more charge.

    Just purchase an oem replacement battery for my LG G4 for about $8 (US) on ebay. I saw this 5020 mah aftermarket battery being sold on ebay. I would like to know if it is any good, but I'm not going to spend $22 to find out. I picked up a mophie battery case/cover for $30 (free shipping) which, so far is working great!

    I agree its probably better to stick with oem batteries made by LG. Note that LG makes two capacities. Some will have 2900 mAh and others are the full 3000 mAh. At one point I bought the LG charger and battery on amazon for 20 bucks.

    Just checked and you can still get the LG charger cradle and 3000 mAh for around 20 bucks (amazon). That is stupid cheap.
     

LG G4

The LG G4 was launched in 2015. It has a 5.5-inch IPS display and a 16MP camera with Laser Auto Focus and Color Spectrum Sensor. It has a 3,000 mAh removable battery and expandable storage. The G4 can be customized with 6 different leather back covers, and 3 different traditional back covers.
