Garmin 496 replacement battery

Here is what ought to be a genuine one - £50.

Here is one from Amazon - £17.

Is the 2nd one necessarily junk?

Usually they are.

Does anyone have a source for one that is definitely good but cheaper than £50?

Think yourself lucky. The one downside of my 695 is that a replacement battery costs £225. Mine failed to hold a charge when it was about 18 months old and Garmin UK very kindly replaced it without any fuss.

If it failed outside of the warranty period, I would have seriously considered cracking it open with a view to replacing the cells.
