    Found a vendor that sells OEM priv batteries brand new, and was wondering if replacing the battery will grant me more then 7 hours of battery, or am I just wasting my money.

    A new battery may or may not help. There are so many factors that affect battery performance: signal strength, Screen On Time, app permission, notification settings, heavy user vs light user.

    The question I would ask is this, "Assuming all the factors being equal, has my battery life took a consistent turn for the worse?"

    Depending on the price of the battery, and if you can do the swap yourself, I would say it is a toss up. I wouldn't, but you may find it worth the while.

    Plenty of battery apps to tell you the "health" of your battery.

    I found them pretty accurate with my Z10's battery health.

    In general a two year old battery shouldn't need to be replaced... but the PRIVs were know for overheating and a high discharge rate.
