    I personally never keep the same battery for more than a year. Some say it's overkill and some agree with me, but to me a battery is always cheaper than replacing the device
    I say just get a new one. Chances are the battery is going to be rather old and worth replacing.

    I feel bad for you if you have an iPhone.

    Phones I actually do replace the whole damn thing. By the time the battery goes out on them, they aren't worth keeping around.
    Console always have some worth to me, especially ones I can hack.

    I agree
    Alright so I was looking for some new batteries and found that all of them have a capacity of 2200 mAh, But my ps vita's battery is higher for some odd reason.....
    I uploaded a picture on the thread.

    Sorry for not replying sooner, I didn't get notified about this.
    There should be a part number on the battery itself that you should be able to look up and find the right replacement battery for.

    I am looking for a new battery, what would be a good place to buy a good one that isn't used? or that at least is reliable
