    Has anybody recent experience with a trustworthy seller of replacement batteries for the iPhone 4s?

    There are many on Amazon but I'm not sure which of those is decent quality.

    Thanks!

    Stick with an original Apple battery installed at the Apple store.

    iFixit are always recommended if in the states.
    When I replaced my old iPhone 4 battery years ago, I bought one off Amazon and it gave worse usage times than the old battery it replaced. I would buy the best looking one in the photos off an Ebay seller...

    I may update this when I'm not mobile. But I've had pretty good luck with both iPhone4parts batteries (OEM) and Stallion batteries off Amazon. Replaced many 4s batteries with OEM replacements from iphone4parts. They were around $8, but price changes a bit.

    As for the last iPhone 5 one I did, it got the Stallion one from Amazon. Good as new. It was $19.99 when I got it.

    I'm typing this on an iPhone 4s with a replacement battery I put in sometime in 2013. Still going strong despite iOS 8 being so annoying. Haha.
