Some weeks ago it was announced that soon they would be sold online, but I'm still waiting... got the same problem as you (and I don't think the warranty covers this)

This is really bad news.  :-\

I have my Zero for 4-5 months now, and I recently noticed that while at first it could last 2 days with very average use, nowadays it usually can't make it more than a day without a recharge.

I thought it was an issue of CM 7.1, but reading this am starting to feel it's not.

Hope they set a fair price on the battery, if it's not included in the warranty. 6 months is way to early for a battery to get so bad.  :(

Yes, same here. Problems started with my battery a week or two ago. Would love to know the name of a compatible battery that I could get either from Geeks Phone or ebay. Ironically I had just got one off ebay for my old Samsung when I decided to get the Geeksphone Zero.

[EDIT] Just spotted the thread re supply of batteries.

If you think you have a problem with your battery, send an email to sat@geeksphone.com
Though, have into account the usage you are giving to the phone (for instance, using viber consumes a lot of battery).

Hope it helps!
