    I read a PC Advisor article that said genuine Apple batteries are available in the UK on ebay (+ a guide to install them).


    Has anyone had any experience with any ebay sellers in the UK selling these. Are they really genuine?

    for example :


    The description says :

    "These batterys have been dissasembled from the brand new iphone 4S phones"

    I wonder why you would take the battery out of a new phone rendering it useless and sell the battery for £8. Yet they have 99.8% positive feedback from 6000+ people.

    Even if they are from real 4s, they maybe already 2 years old. Batteries have SHELF LIVES.

    You wouldn't. These are almost certainly counterfeits but there's no way to tell.

    How much does Apple charge for a 4S battery? I heard $50, is this true?
