Buying a Battery????
I am looking a buying a battery for my 8120. The new more powerful one. Why is it that the DELIVERY is as much as the Battery??????
Who are you buying it from and what's the cost/shipping? Can you pick a less-expensive shipping speed?

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.
thanks all for your help, i think im going to ask a friend to buy one in the usa and ship it over in private post. the size and weight of it is only slight so the costs will be very low
again thanks all
