Even when its competitors turned their backs on removable batteries, opting instead for fully-sealed handsets, LG has stood its ground, and year after year we see the manufacturer come back with new phones ready to swap out their batteries for fully-charged replacements at a moment’s notice. But how many users actually take advantage of this option? We’ve seen the manufacturer try and stoke interest with bundle deals giving new owners free extra batteries and charging cradles, but what if you missed out on those deals? You may be in luck (with an emphasis on “may”- we’ll explain in a second), as LG offers some pretty serious savings on a number of its battery and charging dock options.
LG advertises that for a limited time it’s cutting prices by up to 60 percent on batteries, 50 percent on charging cradles for the G4 and V10’s batteries, and 70 on bundles that include those cradles and their respective batteries. All orders are eligible for free shipping.
Sounds pretty good, right? Well, now we get to the part we alluded to earlier, because availability looks pretty iffy at the moment. While we were able to add to our cart some cheap $15 replacement batteries for the G3, G4, and V10, LG appears to be out of stock for those charging cradles, preventing us from saving even more on the 70-percent-off bundle deals.
Still, even without the cradles that’s a nice price on batteries, and LG’s free shipping only sweetens the deal. Maybe LG will find some more of those cradles to sell before this sale is over, but even if it doesn’t, are any of you LG users tempted to pick up a spare battery or two?
