Nokia N95 Battery

My Nokia N95 (1st generation) has v poor battery life, so I've decided to get an additional one...

1. Does it have to be a 'genuine nokia'?
2. Where are reputable places to buy from? Would you use eBay?
3. When the battery dies and I charge the phone the time/date settings go - is this normal?! How can this be avoided?!

Thanks!

It doesn't have to be genuine.

Ebay are ok but I would avoid anything from China / HK for returns reasons.

Yes, time and date will not remain on the phone when the battery dies. It may for a few seconds if you change between batteries.

It always has to be genuine, batteries matter especially with a handset that is so power hungry.
Ever bought Tesco batteries? Terrible compared to Duracel Ultra's.

Always get genuine Nokia batteries.
I have 1 non-genuine one and it's not worth using. Doesn't hold it's charge at all.
Be careful on ebay as non-genuine ones can be dressed up to look genuine ones. You can tell when they're in your hand but not so easily in the pictures on the listing.

When buying non genuine batteries try to get the same mAH rating as the original,
This way it holds the same power. I have plenty of re-chargeable batteries with high mAH rating and are just as good as any original, and half the price!!

Some reputable retailers selling batteries:
Mobile Phone Battery Compatible with Nokia BL-5F £4.95

Genuine Nokia BL-5F Battery Original for N95
£12.99 + Delivery

I used datakits.co.uk last year and had no problems.

I bought a compatible battery of Ebay for my old Nokia 330 and it works good. I have also bought some cheap coin batteries of Ebay (from honk Kong) and they were terrible. I think the advice previous posters have given is good.
