    Thanks you very much N_LaRUE :)

    I am just wondering if I should go for a custom built - which contains double IC protection. Is this a reliable one. This also contains a small text printed on the rightmost bottom - PROTO2

    And few of them contains the manufacturing date imprinted as 2012/12/30

    New Original 2000mAh Battery BP 4GW 4GW For Nokia Lumia 920 920T Free Ship-in Rechargeable Batteries from Computer & Office on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

    And few with the dates as 2014/03/18

    I too have this question.
    The main complaint I hear is that the batteries are as old as the 920 so they will not provide much extra power.

    Is there a valued source that people trust for 920 batteries?

    Surely a battery manufactured in the last year should be best.

    Search youtube. It's really easy. Simply three little screws, maybe a 10 min job.

    I thought it was the charging cycles that kill the battery, not the age?

    Age does as well. The optimum charge for storing a battery is 40% charge. 100% will cause faster deterioration.

    An heat is a killer for them, especially charging them when warm, like wireless :P
    Lithium's age well if stored with only 40% ~ 50% charge.

    Fwiw, I purchased a new 920 battery, installed it without a problem (YouTube vid). The manufacturing date was around the same age as the phone. No noticeable difference in battery life. It did feel good to be able to replace the battery myself, but again no noticeable difference in life.
