    Who are you buying it from and what's the cost/shipping? Can you pick a less-expensive shipping speed?

    Hello mate,

    to be truthful everywhere!. the battery is approx $42.00 and the cheapest shipping i've seen is approx $39.00!

    I noticed that there ws a new battery out the same size as a normal pearl battery but has more power! I am travelling quite alot and thought it would be a great idea to get one

    must be ebay. thas the way most vendors make their money, charge $4 for the battery and $6-$7 for shipping, when in actuality only costs $2 to ship it. Its still better than retail. I bought a razor battery off ebay for $8 w/shipping. At the local AT&T store the exact same battery was $42 plus tax.

    I've seen batteries in Manhattan for the 8100 for about $10. But you have to go to the shop and pick it up... From the condition of the shop I dont think they dealt with shipping or any of that stuff. Strictly cash and carry. But I bought from them and never had a problem. Charge stays good too... So it wasn't a bad battery.
