These days, smartphones run the world. The Samsung Galaxy dominates our universe, and Apple iPhones seem to grow on trees.
When your phone runs smoothly, your life runs smoothly. And the more powerful our cell phones become, the more power they require. That's why we stock all major cellphone battery types – lithium ion smartphone batteries, as well as older generation batteries for Droid, Blackberry and flip phones.

Here's a simple checklist to help guide you through the process of finding the right battery for your cellphone:

1. Know Your Cellphone Brand and Model:

You may already know that you have an Samsung Galaxy, iPhone or Droid, but knowing the exact model number will make your search for a battery easier. For phones with easily removable batteries, like flip phones, the model number is often found on the cellphone itself, printed on a label behind the battery, or on the back or bottom of the device. Look around to see if you can find a name that sits next to the brand name (LG, Samsung, etc.).

2. Know Your Cellphone Battery Model Number:

If the make and model of your cellphone can't be found on the device itself, the battery will often have the information printed on it.

Most online battery stores like can help you locate a battery by model number, or will provide a replacement cellphone battery or a Factory OEM battery, giving you more options to choose from. Searching for an Samsung Galaxy Edge on may help you find compatible batteries that are more affordable.

If you're looking to replace an iPhone battery, but not sure where to start, simply search "iPhone" to see all our of iPhone-related items – batteries and the tools to replace them, along with protective cases, car chargers and tons of other accessories.

4. Verify Before You Buy:

It's always a good idea to look closely at the images of the battery you are about to purchase. If the battery connector doesn't look like the same connector on your current battery, this may not be the right one.

If for some reason you don't have the old battery anymore or if you have already recycled the battery, you can always check the connectors on the back of the cellphone itself to see if they match the battery you are about to buy.

In the graphic above, we have a Samsung SCH-A850 that we will use as an example. Look at the compartment where the battery would fit (labeled Battery Connector). If your new battery is shaped differently, has a different connection slot, or simply doesn't look like it will fit, it's time to contact the call center to see if they can verify whether the battery is correct or not.
