    I love my Priv, but I'm nervous that there are no replacement batteries available and I think I'm going to need a replacement soon. What's going on and will somebody somewhere have some soon? Or have I missed a source?

    Hi Judy, if you're in Canada see here:

    If in USA ask if they ship to your address.

    Usually China would be a good source for these things, but so far I've only seen pulls. Even etradesupply had been out of stock for the longest time.

    I'm willing to bet new spare stock has long depleted.

    The "markings from storage" tells me these are pulls.

    What's wrong with that, if I may ask?

    Hard to tell the condition of the battery, after all it's a consumable. If you buy a whole used phone you can at least check the condition. At almost $80, you're better off with a whole phone so there are other parts to salvage, it's not too good of a value.

    Okay I understand. Thanks for educating me.

    You do have to wonder, though, how much longer of a use you would get out of using the Priv after you swap a new battery in.

    If you get someone to swap the battery for you, it could be pretty expensive, on top of the battery cost. And if you were to do it yourself, you could possibly damage the phone.

    With the Priv not getting the Nougat update, that means that the security updates will stop within a year from now.
