Samsung Electronics has reportedly decided to stop using batteries produced by its affiliate Samsung SDI in its new smartphone Galaxy Note 7 after defects found in some of the batteries led to a sweeping recall of over 2 million phablets worldwide.

“As a follow-up of the battery issue, we decided to temporally stop using Samsung SDI’s battery for Galaxy Note 7,” several local media outlets reported on Monday, citing sources from Samsung Electronics.

30 percent of batteries have been provided by Chinese battery maker ATL. It is now likely that Samsung will have to purchase additional batteries from ATL for its recall and future Note 7 stock.

Yup good idea ...I agree it's a great phone why not get a new one ...always best to be safe ... you wait till they have them ready and get one before you return it ..win win

I love the Note 7 a lot more than I expected. I'm having no issues so I'm staying the course until new ones become available. It seems like a crap shoot. Exchange a working phone that might have a problem sometime for a new one with possible problems. What concerns me is that Verizon only yesterday sent an email with Samsung quotes and still has not said they will exchange when replacements become available. I just hope it won't take a clas action suit to get this right.
 
If the US Note 7 isn't an issue, it would only become a frivolous lawsuit.
IMO people get worried way to easy. If Samsung / Verizon sends me a unit to replace my current, I'll do it, but I'm not worried as the issue hasn't occurred here. If it does, I'll pay closer attention... There are many more things in life to consume our attention than an issue that's occurring across the other side of the world.

Question : Do you guys think that with all the Battery Headaches, Samsung will go back to the removable battery?

No. I think that with the design Samsung is trying to keep removable batteries are history.

I just got a text message from Verizon. Does anyone know the if an when the replacement Note 7 will be ready? The text said you only have until Sept. 30th but was unclear when it is ready. The text content implies that they are not offering a replacement, only a "return or exchange" as in an exchange for another model. However the link at the bottom says otherwise. Here's the text I received:

FREE VZW MSG: On September 2, 2016, Samsung announced a voluntary recall of the Galaxy Note7 in response to an issue with the device's battery. Because customer safety is our top priority, Verizon has stopped selling the Galaxy Note7. Additionally, through September 30, 2016, Verizon is waiving the restocking fee. If you wish to return or exchange the device, please visit the store you purchased it from. When you return your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and buy another smartphone you will get up to $25 off any accessory. Learn more at [Statement] Samsung Will Replace Current Note7 with New One.

We can only hope.
It sure would've been a lot cheaper to replace everyone's battery as opposed to everyone's device.

As others have said, I doubt it, especially if they want to keep the IP68 rating.

I wonder if this different battery will have more or less Up Time?
No, I would expect that since the phone was sold with specifications for the existing battery to be a particular mAh capacity that they would be unable to veer away from that capacity in a replacement battery. MAh capacity dictates runtime so the phones should work exactly as advertised with the replacement batteries.
