    A helpful user in another thread did link me to some batteries on ebay but with how bad and dangerous aftermarket batteries can be i was hoping to replace mine with an official lg battery.

    The only things that have me scratching my head is the site says its for the G4 and the stylo is rated at 2900 mah but in the link above it says 3000 mah.



    They are currently on sale for a whole 15 bucks so if this is correct let me know because my phone still is giving me charging problems

    Well if it's supplied by LG, I'd say it would be safe and not explode. Like it's not a cheapo knock-off.

    Yes that i understand. And what model number our battery has matches the one on the site...but lg says its a g4 battery and its 3000mah while our stock one is 2900.

    So im a bit confused as to whether it'll be compatible with our device or if it'll cause problems.

    I honestly dont know much about batteries and voltage and all that. Its definitely not my category of expertise

    G4 batteries work on the Stylo.

    I bought 2 from Amazon and they work great.

    So we can use extended LG G4 batteries. But they gotta be the 1s that don't require a new back cover. Due to phones being slightly different size. Right? Going to look myself for one that has the highest mAh with that in mind. Please post links if you find a good one, as I will too.

    Question I don't know a lot bout quick charge. But does the battery have to support quick charge? Or is that the phone? Because I don't wanna give up quick charge if that's the case.

    Just get the one for boost mobile phones . They are rated for 3000 amp hour and are the same size as my metro/tmo stylo (ms631).
