    Does anyone have a recommended source for batteries please? I'm not hung up on it being xiaomi as long as it's reliable.
    I see ******* sell original ones but aliexpress has non xiaomi ones for less... Anyone using a non xiaomi battery please?

    In my old phones I rarely used oem to replace the original battery, and had no fires then!

    are these any different than the branded xiaomi batteries? are they bm20 size with higher capacity? the momax seems to be the same 2000mah...? im surprised none of you are scared you'll blow up your phone heh.

    Momax is a well known company. It's not a cheap battery so no worry there

    About 6 months, but I'm using it as backup battery only, not for regular use.

    The 3120 mAh extended battery works great for me, just don't buy from Fulcrumall.

    I'm sure it's not always the case (however it was for me), but if they ship you defective goods, they won't offer support or refunds after the fact.
