My brother’s Redmi Note 7 pro battery died recently and we were stunned to find the battery which costed around rs 1200 is now rs 2999 plus GST plus service charges

Totral price quote including fitting charges and pasting charges is coming littles less than rs 4000 which is too HIGH for a phone which was available around 13k pensive

CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ALTERNATIVE BATTERY BRAND WHICH WORKS AS GOOD AS ORIGINAL ????

The overwhelming majority of third-party batteries are just crap. Some that reportedly delivered good battery backup for the first few months degraded quickly afterwards so as to require replacement in less than a year. The hiked prices can’t be justified either so kinda caught between a rock and a hard place. For not too old devices that will deliver sufficient performance for the next few years original battery can be considered. Most Xiaomi devices seem to support bypass charging with root so that seems to be a great way to prolong battery longevity.
P.S. What exactly do you mean by the battery in RN7P dying? Phone doesn’t start w/o being plugged in or switching off suddenly if unplugged?

Mi Max 2 battery is still reasonably priced at Rs 999. Including GST and labour charges ~Rs 1.4k. Don’t waste money on third-party garbage. @hese

Edit: If you root and limit battery charging between 30-80% or so it’s very likely the battery would last 5-6 years. My Redmi Note 3 is about to turn 5 and battery health is around 77%. In addition limiting max. charging voltage should yield even more benefits.

@siddudeagarwal While battery for F1 is listed at Rs 4999 on Poco website excl. taxes etc. which comes to a whopping Rs 6.4k , service centers still quote the old price, Rs 4k. But it’s mostly OSS with a 5-15 day wait period. When it comes back in stock every chance it’s price at the service points will be updated to the one the website. There’s some speculation that a shortage of parts has led to the price hike which might be reverted later if and when the situation improves. However no other company has effected such a massive price hike…

Samsung spare parts is quite reasonably priced and service cost is also less than redmi. 

A50 battery cost is just 799, so including labor it will be less than 1500. 

Redmi/Realme/Mi are cheaper to buy but very rare to last for more than couple of years
at max.

My redmi 4 battery is 999 as per your shared price list. May I know how much the service center will charge as labour etc in addition to the cost of that battery.

Same as Mi Max 2. 18% GST on 999. Around Rs 350 as labour charges plus 18% GST on it as well. Maybe another Rs 50 odd for adhesive? 


Edit: You can just call your local service center for the current quotation. Also while for F1 they mentioned 1 hour for replacement once the battery came back in stock another dimer had mentioned that for his Redmi 4a he had to keep his device at the service center for a week. Also battery might not be readily available everywhere. In which case a few days wait.

I purchased Redmi Note 4 Battery for ₹550 all inclusive from a local shop in July which also offered 6 months Seller Warranty. It’s working fine so far and backup is surprisingly as good as original. 😊

 Pretty common for third-party batteries to deliver decent battery life for the first few months and degrade rapidly thereafter so as to require replacement within a year or so. Which brand?

Not really aware of the brand and since the phone is now with parents age person so battery should stay good for another 12 months hopefully.

Flashback: The device was earlier lying idle (Presuming Dead) at a relative since 18 months as he was deceitfully told by official Mi Service centre (Varanasi) that it’s motherboard is gone and quoted final repair price as ₹4500+ which he refused and purchased a Samsung M Series smartphone.

Months later I took the phone to shop and asked them to just replace its battery. Shopkeeper told me that if the phone gets switched on you’ll have to purchase the battery.  grinning I said Alright and the phone is working as good as anything since then.
