    Just to make you aware the lumia 950 battery has a bigger mAh and will work on the lumia 640. The standard 640 battery has a lower mAh! Also all accessories are in on Monday from Microsoft!
    thanks for the info! good to hear that.

    I returned my Lumia 950. Bad battery life. Sounds like 950xl same.

    You shouldn't have to disable feature(s) to fix a bad battery life. I ended up returning the device.

    bought an extra battery from fonejoy UK store delivered by dhl to US cost me about 80 us dollars with shipping i know a little steep but I rather have an actual spare battery than buy a charger which U would have to leave connected with the phone. Its a original battery branded with the Microsoft logo what I don't get is why Microsoft still don't sell the battery but a company in the UK has them its like weird but I am happy now I can actually use the phone with heavy usage without worrying about phone dying cause the battery life in this phone is not that good especially using edge browser and I don't think theirs a fix for it.

    wow it was cheaper (like less than half) for me to buy a wireless charger on fleabay! I don't understand why you would buy a battery at that price when you could've gotten an extra nice wireless charger for work... ACTUALLY I bought 2 wireless chargers (car and home) for less than that! LOL

    Hello all,

    Is it fast and easy to change the battery? Do you need any tool to open the cover? I'm asking because I may buy the 950XL and use a spare battery for high-use everyday and anywhere (car, transport, street...).

    Thanks.

    Not sure of your point, I don't need to disable anything on my iPhone and I can get through my day just fine without thinking of if My phone will die.

    My Lumia 950 XL couldn't even make it 6 hours. Clearly I didn't use magic with my iPhone, just Windows 10 mobile isn't optimized or isn't ready.

    This doesn't even cover the app gap. Windows 10 mobile needs magic to close the app gap.

    You should return the device as faulty as that's clearly not right. I use my 950 xl hard, it's my work phone with both work and personal email on it. I do hours of conference calls most days and it easily does the full day with 40%+ at the end of the day.

    Somewhat easy to open the case, no tool required. Fast to swap the battery.
    Just good luck in finding a replacement battery. Hopefully soon there will be plenty available.

    Seeing quite a few batteries available on eBay - not sure on the quality and they aren't that expensive.

    Very easy to open the case and change the battery in about 30 seconds.

    Battery life is much improved, for me, on the latest insider. Been messing around most of the day on the phone, email sync on, WiFi on, taking calls and such like. Left the house fully charged at 6.30AM and it's on 88% now - five hours later.

    Lame! This is still not available to buy here in the US except for one ridiculous vendor from the UK through Ebay who charges more for shipping than the battery itself.

    Now it seems nowhere to find. Ridiculous, even for the old 520 you can find spare batteries.

    There are many spare batteries for Microsoft Lumia 950 XL in Thailand.
    I purchased 2 spare batteries for Microsoft Lumia 950 XL about 1 month ago.
    Price about THB970 (or approx. USD30).

    I got mine from the EU as well, UK I think, for about the same $30 and maybe 10 for shipping. Everything matches my OEM battery, every last mark. I do suspect it's fairly easy to order a non-OEM one, kind of disguised as OEM.
    One of my earlier posts has the link.

    I bought mine from the UK, a little costly but some piece of mind if I ever need a backup.
