    They also sell this on the Best Buy website, but it'll cost you $5 extra. Order direct from Esourceparts and save $5.

    I received an original OEM BlackBerry battery, even though the photo and description look like a generic battery.

    Swapped the battery yesterday. Simple enough. Plenty of YouTube videos that teach you how.

    Have you gotten better life out of a new battery? Does it still get hot? Is it worth doing so? I have been looking to change out my battery for a while now, just not sure if it will help long term you know? What have you noticed since you replaced it?

    Bump... any battery improvements?

    Also, did it come with pull-tab adhesives?

    Definitely an improvement in battery performance. I only have to charge once a day now and I'm good for the whole day vs. having to charge 3-4 times day. Doesn't come with the adhesive tab, so I just reused the existing one from the old battery. I'll have to replace my PRIV because of a corporate IT policy that Android 6 won't be allowed as of November. So, I figured I extended the life of my PRIV for at least the next 6 months. Hopefully BlackBerry comes out with something new by then that I actually like. Hoping for a PRIV form factor type device. Either way, the battery will still be good when I pass it down to my 8 year to play with lol. Certainly worth the $50 investment.

    Emailed Esourceparts to ask if they could despatch to UK, but no answer!
    Wondered if anyone in Canada could get me one and forward to me? Would transfer $$ in advance.

    Sure, I don't mind helping you out. Total came to $61.93 CDN with tax and shipping. Not sure how much to ship to UK afterwards. Private message me for my email address.
