you will get non branded one mostly online and offline. only source to get original is the service centre but they will charge too much.

I buy offline. Cheaper than buying online. Your local market retailers are good for such needs.

I roam all service centre and authorised seller of samsung,and checked their website as well…but for my galaxy on 8 , samsung has stopped making it…i checked with local seller, they were charging 5-900 rs for generic/local battery with no or 3 month warranty.
But mostly these batteries wont last even 1 month.

Instead buy any battery from electronics store like robu.in, electronicscomp or any you like (which you think is good).
Then buy similar dimension battery as original.
Desolder or cut that protection board from purchased battery and solder original battery’s connector.
Done plus1
Only “con” that you might not find exact dimension battery size asper original.
But mAh capacity will be better than local offline and online.

Let me get back to you in a little while. 


Edit: My Poco F1 has a 4Ah battery. I have asked an XDA member who recently replaced it for help with it’s dimensions. Awaiting his reply. Official battery is extortionately priced.


Even more interesting is perhaps one of the lower capacity batteries listed in the site could probably be used for Kindles.My  PW3 has a 1.42Ah battery although it should be some years before a replacement becomes necessary. After the ban on Aliexpress it had become near impossible to source a replacement nevermind a good quality one.

I think poco or Xiaomi have good service compared to others. And all battery prices are mentioned on their service site excluding GST tax + ₹350 service charge + adhesive charges (₹5-50). Everything looks good and better.

I already replaced 2 device batteries from official service center.
Redmi note 4 (4100mah) and checked it’s battery capacity using BatteryGuru and AccuBattery app. It is quite good, 3889 mAh I got.
I told them these results next day, and asked to provide exact capacity battery. They told me they have used original battery. And showed me plastic wrapped new battery for other device.
They told me if you want to replace battery for this reason, then we have to send this battery for testing and you will have to wait.
Another device was Redmi note 7, and I got 3697 mAh.
So I decided not to send these for testing.

Mostly i did this trick on out of stock batteries.
If you have original available then buy original.

One more thing about batteries.
Redmi note 4 in 2017 purchased had more than 3500mAh (Not tested but assuming) now it had 2756 mAh before replacement. I kept both Battery new and old from service center. I’m using old battery till it’s completely gone.

Yes. But recently Xiaomi has jacked up the battery prices almost across it’s entire lineup. 2.5x increase in most cases. For F1 it’s a mind boggling Rs 6.4k as per the spare parts list in Poco website. But service centers upon enquiry mention the old price, Rs 4k which is still very overpriced. Then again the battery is OOS in most places, 5-15 day wait time. Maybe when it’s back in stock the service centers might also quote the new price. 


In addition Xiaomi has recently brought back spare batteries for ancient Redmi 1s, 2 and Mi 4 which went OOS years ago! 


P.S. Under ideal storage conditions batteries tend to lose upto 2-4% charge every year. And since manufacturing of batteries stops in the year of release itself getting a battery with 100% health is quite difficult.

Yes. I checked that.
Also there will be another price hike.in coming months.

Yes you are right. Self discharge. I completely forgot about this.

This may fit according to battery size. I can’t guarantee. Because exact dimensions are unkonwn.
https://www.electronicscomp.com/3.7v-3500mah-li...
https://www.electronicscomp.com/3.7v-4000mah-li...

Also battery prices are higher online.
You will get better price at local and good quality at known good local shop.

Not gonna try with these cheap batteries. They are usually crap most of the time. I don’t fancy opening up the device every few months! That increases the chances of a screw-up. If you are specifically looking for Poco F1 best alternative is to try your luck with Asus ZP MPM1 or Samsung M20 batteries which are inexpensive and much higher capacity. Although that requires soldering skills. Even third-party batteries are worth a shot. If the original battery comes back in stock at Rs 4k I will just bite the bullet and buy it. That should last 4 years. Hopefully even longer as F1 will be retired from active duties in the next year or so, bypass charging will be enabled from the beginning and I will stick to 10W charging.

For F1, right? ACC gave me the idea, embellished by a post in Battery Charging Limit app’s XDA thread. ACC was buggy back then so I did it manually. Root necessary.


Edit: 1 year warranty looks good but I am doubtful whether it would even be possible to claim it.


Edit2: No user reviews/ratings yet. Personally I wouldn’t buy it at this stage.

Well battery idle worked on acca.
Asus customer care informed that they don’t sell batteries separately. Then, I’ll probably not go down down the rabbit hole of soldering a third party battery

seems this amazon order is my best bet for now

Which ROM? I could never get battery idle working in crDroid. Maybe I needed to try a different kernel. But the stock Optimus Drunk is excellent and in any case bypassing charging works by limiting the max. charging voltage so I didn’t mind.

I purchased battery from batterygod.

Nobody provides original other than authorised service centre. (Excluding some worst cases)

There are methods, signs to find original battery. Looking at the cover. Specification on battery. Font style and size on battery cover.
For normal user you can use accu battery and battery Guru app for finding out exact battery capacity.

Online batteries from Amazon Flipkart are never original Except company is seller on Amazon Flipkart or else. Service parts, spare parts for device are not sold in India and in world. You always get 1000 mAh to 2000 mAh less battery than specified.
Excluding Xiaomi poco etc, some seller sell original battery if you dig deeper Amazon Flipkart etc
But again you need to identify that it’s original.
#RightToRepair movement was started for this, availability parts, instructions manual and lifetime support not only for Mobile all electronics gadgets, vehicles, now this movement extending every “machine” search on Google

Then comes batteries with 3rd party like batterygod, mobatree etc etc
My personal experience, only batterygod provided good capacity battery for Lenovo k6 power.
BUT AGAIN IT MAY BE MY LUCK OR THAT ONE EXCEPTIONAL BATTERY
Original battery size was 4000 mah. On batterygod battery cover 3000 mah written but after checking with those apps BatteryGuru and AccuBattery, it was ~3500 mAh capacity. Which was really good considering unavailability and 3rd party seller.
(Good way to find actual exact capacity by those apps running in background and taking 5 readings from 0 to 100 % and 100 to 0% for 5 times atleast. The. You can uninstall those apps.
On zero to five percent it should automatically shut down. Turn on again. Until device unable to start. The. Charge to 100% until device says “battery full”. Disconnect and connect again to see if it’s charging or showing battery full. Then using normally until device shutd down. And charging normall until device full.
Repeating this 3 times minimum. You will get exact capacity.
Try it for your original battery and you will understand how manufacturer save battery from over discharge and overcharge.)

For all online sites, check return refund procedure and all terms and conditions before buying.

Then local batteries, which never lasts long and burns or blasts often. Useless batteries. Excluding some good stores which again can’t give assurity of original battery because Batteries are not original.

Then there is some diy stuff where you can purchase exact dimensions of batteries from local electronics market.
Soldering original BMS (battery management strip) to purchased local battery and enjoy long lasting battery life.
Excluding fake battery sellers, you should know good battery seller in electronics market. And testing actual capacity using those apps.

That’s all…. Good luck.

There are YouTube guides go through it. Instructables site also there.
Also you can solder any 3.7v battery which fits into phone. Local battery, other phones battery, old nokia battery etc etc.
Don’t put 2 batteries in parallel if you can’t find big one.
No harm in that. But single one is good and better always.
You can try batteries in parallel in other diy stuff.
