For Samsung Katalyst SGH-T739. Still working with original battery, circa 2008, but need reputable online store to find a fresh one. eBay/Amazon full of knockoffs. Want to avoid anything similar or useless old stock. Wondering, in fact, if these are still being made new anywhere.

Thanks BD, but saw some of those already. The main issue is to find a reliable seller with fresh stock. Not sure about any of those. Prices vary wildly--the really cheap ones seem like they could be crappy knockoffs.

Yeah, saw that, and checked reviews for East Coast Photo, which are mostly horrible.

Problem is I can find poor reviews for almost every major seller. Bait and switch at batteriesplus.com. Don't want to spend $ on a battery that will die in a few months, or worse, explode. Current battery still holds a charge. But after 7 or 8 years, thought this phone could do with a new battery. No idea where to go to get a good one.
