Cell Phone Replacement Batteries – Finding One That Fits

You may have noticed that finding the correct replacement for your cell phone battery has become increasingly difficult over the past few years. Cell phone manufacturers are placing chips in their batteries that communicate with the phone. The technology is great for telling you how much life you have left in your battery, but the manufacturers have been using similar part numbers on batteries with different chips. This makes it harder to find a replacement. If you use a battery that looks like an exact match to your original, but has the wrong chip, you will get a message like “non-supported battery.” The best way to avoid this situation is to use the correct, original manufacturer part number to find your battery. Make sure you are looking in the correct location for the part number. See the example below for a Motorola® “BP6X” battery:

*GB/T is not an OEM Part Number. However, it is the only indicator on certain brands.

You can also search for a cell phone battery by using the brand or model number of your particular phone. If you don't know your brand or model number, look at the label inside the battery compartment. Almost every cell phone has a manufacturer's label which includes the brand and model number on it.
