Reliable Source for Samsung OEM Batteries (or reliable substitute)

I have had it with Amazon counterfeit merchandise.... but don't want to get into a rant about Amazon's lack of effective enforcement against counterfeits...
Anyway, looking for a replacement Galaxy Note 4 battery where the source is reliable... if it's OEM...
Or a decent substitute source... I use Anker power bricks with satisfaction but they don't seem to sell replacement batteries from their website...
Suggestions?
Thanks!

While not the cheapest vendor out there, batteries.com is one that is dependable, responsive, and has been around for almost twenty years. The batteries they sell are typically not OEM, but I've always found their performance superior to the manufacturer.

Thanks for that idea... I just did but cannot find a battery for the Note 4... even searching for "Note 4" or "Note IV" returns nothing

just searched batteries.com and no search results for:
"note 4"
"note IV"
"EB-BN910BBU" (the part# off the original battery)

I put this in my note 4 about a year ago It was better than the original and has been rock solid since purchasing.
