Question Best source for batteries?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey team,

I like to keep a few extra batteries around for my BlackBerry, and I use an external charger to keep them all charged. Up to this point, I had been buying from eBay, since it seems silly to pay $30 for a battery. However, the last two I bought - one didn't work, and the other actually fried my BlackBerry (not completely, but I did have to reinstall the OS, if you can believe that). So...I've learned my lesson...no more batteries for $3 from eBay.

My question is, is there any reliable source to buy BB batteries from other than RIM directly? I trust you guys on this forum as to your judgment pretty highly. Perhaps there's a middle ground between $4 and $30+? I'm just looking for the most inexpensive one that'll actually safely work. Thanks!

Check out the sponsors here on the forum, Amazon, Crackberry.

Buy OEM, not knockoffs, and not the cheapest you can find.
