    I was just wondering what you guys might suggest as the "go to" place for battery replacement. I've tried Amazon and Newegg, but neither are very helpful. Has anyone found the secret club where you knock three times, flash your shiny new G2X, and get let into a well organized, descriptive, and helpful site to get a replacement battery?

    hi.

    if you want oem, which i recommend, go to the manufacturer's site to avoid fake knock offs.

    if you want an extended battery life, go to seidio.

    i have a captivate, not a g2x, but seidio may have what you want.

    i could care a less if i save $4.00. i only deal direct when possible.

    too many scammers, too many people steal credit card info.

    Damn. You'd think that with the dependency we've developed on our phones these days that there would be somebody out there willing to properly exploit this.

    I recently got an extended battery for my Droid Incredible from e-bay. Not an OEM battery, but it does seem to work and I can go about 2 1/2 days or so before needing to plug it in. Of course it adds thickness to the phone, so it's something to consider. Personally the extra thickness is not a dealbreaker for me.

    This.

    I've had a few experiences of "extended" batteries and, always, without fail, I'll return to stock. They look to perform ok to start, but give them a few charge/discharges and they just don't cut the mustard.

    I bought an OEM from Overstock.
    Generic no name stuff is just awful.

    Best to go straight to site, Amazon are reputable (obviously), but just because it has the manufacturers name on it, won't necessarily mean it's not a fake.
