    I love Crackberry, but I feel I can find better for $30. Reason is I'm only going to have my Storm1 for about 6 more weeks but this situation is a little unbearable. Once these lithium batteries wear out, they really die fast! The problem with looking on Amazon and eBay is you see sketchy sellers putting batteries up for $2...skeptical! Where did you buy your replacement battery?

    I must say, this battery had an incredible 16 month run. +1 to RIM for battery life.

    I've used GoGo Power for a couple of batteries before. They had the cheapest prives I could find for laptops. Have not used them for cell phone batteries tho. May be worth a look for you. Good luck

    I go to ebay. The key is the word "OEM" and finding a good seller. Do not buy a battery unless it's new and OEM, that is, official Blackberry merchandise. Any other battery could harm your BB or not work as well.

    Amazon and Ebay can be used if you do your homework and insure the seller has good feedback. Look at actual feedback reports or reviews to see if anyone has reported getting non-functioning batteries or knockoff branded batteries. Use good judgment and keep in mind, if it looks like a shady deal, it probably is.
