How does one purchase a genuine replacement battery for a Nighthawk M1 Mobile Router?

Answered

Does anyone know how to purchase a genuine replacement battery for a Netgear Nighthawk M1 Mobile Router? From searching both Netgear and Telstra web sites, it would appear that neither Netgear nor Telstra sell genuine replacement batteries for the Netgear Nighthawk M1 Mobile Router.

The batteries from those 2 companies are compatible with the M1. Plus, you have the advantage that they are Australian companies so you retain your rights under ACL if they don't work.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

You're absolutely right. It has been happening for 5 years I know of, and I often wonder if anyone has ever complained to the consumer folk.

I simply use my Nighthawk without a battery, with a UPS.

Thank you Professor Phone, that's exactly what I am currently doing. It does make going completely mobile a little more difficult.

There are a few batteries advertised on eBay, but not sure if they are legit. I have good experiences buying rechargeable batteries for mobiles and other devices from Crazy Victor though.

Too many devices, probably an addict :-) also a tinkerer and developer of stuff..
Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!

I've found some batteries available at "Battery World" and "Batteries Direct" that purport to be suitable replacement batteries for the Netgear Nighthawk M1 Router but, like you, I'm uncertain as to whether they're legit.
