    Just got my two extra Note 4 batteries for my Note 4 that I ordered on eBay for $11.95 each. The original battery is on the right in the picture and the other two are the eBay batteries. They are identical in every way and have the NFC circuitry built in. I also got two batteries for my Note Edge last week from the same seller.

    bastexwireless

    Took a full week to get the batteries though. They shipped through DHL who then turns it over to USPS. I hate when sellers do that.

    The price includes their part of the shipping cost - you'd pay more if they shipped by USPS. DHL? You'd pay more for shipping than for the battery. Combind the wto and the shipping cost is just this side of unreasonable. (If you're on Prime, they still pay part, so you would pay more.)

    Yeah, I realize the it's to keep the cost low. The wait is worth saving the money in the end.

    A week doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Will check them out. Thanks!

    I'm weary after buying a cheap battery on Amazon that looked OEM and turned out to only last 4 months before dying around 30-40%. How does this battery compare to an Anker which I've heard nothing but good things about?

    The Samsung battery I posted about above is a real Samsung battery. I would buy it over an Anker battery. Some people say they have had good luck with Anker but I have never tried them.

    Samsung batteries are cheaply priced now because the Note 4 is now an old phone. The seller I mentioned above is very close to being out of them now. They've sold hundreds of them and have nothing but good feedback on them.
    Why pay $20 for an Anker battery when you can get a genuine Samsung battery for $11.95?

    I also bought a S-View case for $6.95. That same case cost me $30 a year ago.

    I'll give them a look. The 2 Anker batteries and a travel charger are only $31.99 on Amazon. That's a pretty good price too.

    Yes they are. Look at the picture I posted above. They are identical and even contain the NFC circuitry.

    I also bought a genuine Samsung S-View case for $6.95 on Wednesday and just got it today. It is the real deal. Don't be afraid to buy these things on eBay just because they are priced so low.

    Definately this, but do your homework and check feedback first.
    I've had some good deals on bits for my phone but sometimes I've sold stuff and it's sold for more than what the buyer could have got new elsewhere lol.

    Most likely fake OEM. This happened to me as well on eBay. Very hard to tell, until they wont hold a charge very well.
    I love Anker batteries, and they stand by them 100%. I will use Anker again, as they have treated me well. Also, you know where your merchandise is coming from too.

    They are original batteries complete with the NFC circuitry.

    I could really use an OEM battery for Note 3 but despite their claims I do not believe they are real. I say this because I called Samsung and even THEY don't have them nor make them any more.

    My Anker extended Note 3 battery caused the phone to reboot all the time.

    Samsung still carried the Note 4 battery but they run out of them all the time. Also, I posted a picture side by side with the original Note 4 battery and the two I got on eBay for $11.05. Exactly the same with the NFC circuit built in.

    Did you email them to see if you could negotiate a replacement? I had one of their batteries go bad on me on my Note 4 (started to show signs of swelling). I emailed them a photo of the battery and they sent me a two pack with desktop charger free of charge. For the price and the service I think they're ok.

    Yes. They refunded the price if the battery no hassle at all but i wouldn't dare try another. It held a charge. Charged fine. Wasn't swollen. No evidence of battery issue at all but the phone rebooted at least twice a day. Had never happened before Anker. Hasn't happened since. I suspect it got hotter than oem battery or provided too much current.

    Just to provide a couple other options if you don't want to mess around with ebay sellers and whether they're genuine or not:

    AC's own ShopAndroid: Samsung 3220mAh Standard Battery for Galaxy Note 4 - Android Batteries - ShopAndroid

    These appear to be genuine Samsung (bought in bulk) but they don't come with the plastic carry case. I bought 2 from them a few months ago and so far they're working great.

    Another option yet is Verizon: Samsung Standard Battery for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - Verizon Wireless

    Picked up 2 of these as insurance when I wasn't sure if the ones from ShopAndroid were genuine or not. These do come with the plastic carry case.

    P.S. - I originally had 2 on order directly from Samsung, but canceled after a month waiting (at which point they had gone on back order).
    I would trust Verizon. They haven't carried Note 3 batteries in over a year. I even tried Asurion. When I got a replacement Note 3 they gave me a new battery but wouldn't sell me an extra. I don't think they even have Note 3 any more. I believe you get a Note 4 on a claim.

    Bastexwireless seems legit because although they carry a note 3 replacement battery they don't claim it to be oem. Even say who makes it. It is junk but they admit what it is. Note 4 they claim the real deal. I see no reason they would lie about one and not the other.
