    Hi all

    Does anyone know why there are no batteries available for the Motion? It seems replacements can be found for almost all Blackberries ever made. Been searching for half the day now. I don't get it...

    It was a short lived product with few units produced.

    I see a few options, but most seem to be from China... so there would be a delay in delivery.

    Might help to state where you are, as others in your area might have a suggestion... locally.

    My wife's Motion had a swollen battery recently. The shop we took it in had a distributor that had the battery. It took a week to get it. We live in the states. So the battery can be had.

    Good to know! Not sure why I can't find one but I'll keep trying...

    Not a recommendation, just what Google came up with.

    Thanks but the link doesn't work for me. I did try Ebay before and tried again and all I find is back covers and external battery chargers.

    Searched all my usual suspects and the only mention of a Motion battery is on Esource but they are out of stock. Even tried searching Aliexpress using the Motion code name "krypton" and came up with nothing other than cases and back covers.

    It appears that the Alcatel A7 has the same battery, makes sense that the Motion and the A7 came out at about the same time...

    battery number : TLp038B1

    Wow thanks so much. That Ali site is an amazing price and in Canadian dollars too. I never would have found that due to the branding and linking to Alcatel. Really appreciate it 👍

    Shipping is a little slow, probably take 3-4 weeks. I trust Aliexpress, haveordered many items with them. Let us know if it works!

    If eBay or other online places don't have any, I guess you could try finding a Motion with a shattered screen or something and get the battery from that one.

    Just be careful with these batteries everyone. You don’t want some cheap piece of garbage in your device. Could be very dangerous.

    But between a cheap knockoff and a swollen OEM one... which one's the lesser of two evils lol?

    Have to disagree. I would accept pretty much ANY cheap battery over a bulged/funky battery. . Far too much suspicion with batteries these days imo. Once upon a time, however, things were different and much more suspect.
