BL-5J in the US?
 
Hello,

My original N900 battery is almost dead. Can somebody recommend me where to buy a replacement battery in the US?

Thanks

Contact Seller maybe.

Note: I do not live in USA nor do I have any experience with the seller. But Ebay should help.

Of the replacement battery manufacturers, SCUD seems to have a good reputation. You would probably have to order via an international seller, though...

Check out this thread. I'm still pleased with the ONITE battery I mention there (bought on Amazon)...

I've had quite a few BL-5Js over the years. SCUD was the only one that suddenly switched off on me when it said 53% left. I took it out and it was all puffed up to scary proportions. To its defense I have to say it was at least two years old, if not three.

Maybe you should try a Nokia Care shop if there is any in the UK. Here in Hungary I was able to buy one in a shop like that and it is working fine, lasts days...

Nokia Care shop in 2017? Really? :)

Btw, genuine Nokia BL-5J batteries are in stock even in reputable shops in my country (Czech Republic) for less than 5 GBP (141 CZK).
