Where to buy REAL Samsung non-OEM batteries?

My wife and I have Samsung phones in need of new batteries and I'm not interested whatsoever in any other battery brands.

Unfortunately, it seems almost everywhere are people selling OEM fakes and similar junk.

I want the full packaging from a Samsung dealer. Can anybody show me a place that sells NEW genuine authentic Samsung batteries please?

Any authorised Samsung service centre or dealer will have access to genuine Samsung batteries. They WILL NOT come in nice retail packing. Samsung ships batteries and parts in plain packaging with a cryptic part number. Anything else should be suspect. Also, be prepared to pay 80, 90, 100+ dollars for a genuine battery (excluding installation - S6, S7, S8, Note 5, A5, etc...) depending on model. If it we're me, I'd opt for the 10 or 20 dollar aftermarket ones.

Yeah.. go to cell phone store where you purchased the phone... they should be able to order you a battery if they don't have one on hand.

I think you're using the wrong term btw... OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer.... which would be Samsung in this case. You're looking for an OEM battery, as opposed to an aftermarket battery.

You're right. OEM should be "Original Equipment Manfucturer" and it should stand for a certain level of quality. I'm in the business and, unfortunately, the term OEM is thrown around so fast and loose that I'd almost call anyone claiming to be selling "OEM" batteries to be 100% full of BS. Ask if it's a "brand new, zero cycle battery, sourced directly from Samsung" and see who will say yes honestly. Also, for a recent model phone, there is absolutely, positively 0 chance of getting a genuine battery for less the 50 bucks.

No,I'm not using the wrong term.

OEM parts are sold without (or very limited) packaging. This sort of practice can lead to many people and small-time businesses selling used parts as new, which is the case with batteries.

Therefore, the subject of the tread is mainly to find batteries which include the full packaging... which, by logic, should cut down on the chances of getting a used part. It's obviously not a guarantee but as I said, there is less of a chance that a company went through the trouble of duplicating the packaging to sell used batteries at a higher price than there would be (logically) of just anybody buying cheap used batteries and selling them as new with no packaging and calling them OEM.

Why would you want a Samsung battery? My original Samsung battery lasted only a year. I bought an anker battery and it has been going strong for 3 years now.

Samsung has it's own repair depot in Mississauga Heartland (Mavis and Britannia). They sell replacement parts there.

? Look at my first post in the thread - Samsung Authorised Service Centres. Look at l69norm's post just above - Samsung Service Centre (at 5985 Rodeo Dr, Mississauga, ON L5R 3X8).
