    Hey, I'd like to buy an extra battery for my Focus. Where would I be able to buy one? They would have to be located in Canada or be able to ship there. and how much are they?

    Thanks.

    You should check out eBay. I've seen some nice deals. But sadly, they.ship from Hong Kong, so shipping takes weeks .

    I'm using this

    Amazon.com: OEM Samsung Standard Battery w/ External Battery Charger & Stand for Samsung Captivate Vibrant Epic 4G Focus: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I got it because it came with the charger, and then the charger actually acts as a "stand" for the phone, so you can use it like an alarm clock at night.

    but if you JUST want the battery -

    $10

    I just recently bought this:
    Amazon.com: Duracell Instant USB Charger with Lithium ion battery / includes universal cable with USB and mini USB,: Electronics

    And it is really easy and it makes my battery last for sure. I highly recommend it.

    Not sure I really trust any of these super cheap "oem" batteries. The stand mentioned above (mgarcia) isn't even mentioned on Samsung's site. When I search for accessories for the Focus, only the $10 stand shows up, but not the one that charges the battery.

    The extra battery is on the wpcentral store, but I don't see the charger there either.

    I think the Duracell is the way to go. So much easier than taking the case back on and off. You might accidentally break one of the tiny plastic pins that holds the back onto the phone if you do that too often...not worth the risk. If you are using a hard case that is even an additional step to pry that off.

    The Duracell is easy...just plug it into the USB port and charge the internal battery whenever you need, and at night you can simultaneously charge both.

    I have two DigiPower USB battery packs (Amazon). One (1600mAh) plugs right into the wall for charging and the other (3000mAh) charges with a mini USB/AC charger. Can walk around the house with either of them and a 12" USB cable. Never without the extra juice.

    LOL I don't blame you, but the I can assure you the one I linked is made by Samsung and even came in Samsung bubble packaging. Amazon lists it as a Samsung produced product.
