When selling the refurbished FP4, Fairphone has committed to be selling parts five years after they stopped selling the phone, which is not the case yet.
I guess the battery must be included in this promise so it seems like a temporary hiccup.
EDIT. when finally managed to check it on the website, it says aimimg for four years, sorry for the mistake. Still, it does not in my opinion change much, I expect the battery to be back in stock
How long will spare parts be available for?
We aim to be able to provide spare parts for 4 years after the last device was sold.
I seem to recall Fairphone mentioning they don’t continuously produce all parts, instead ordering large bulk amounts of some parts when they get low. This could be one of those situations where they ran out before the factory delivered their new stock.
Hi Robert, thank you for your message. @NGnius is right: While it is true that the Fairphone 4 batteries are temporarily out of stock, there is a new batch on the way to our warehouse and they will come back in stock in the Fairphone webshop next week (week 51) already. Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you very much for your patience.
Happy Christmas everybody! With UK leaving the EU can batteries still be sent to the UK? I’m thinking of getting a spare for my FP4. I’m in N. Ireland so I can always get one sent to my relations in the south where it’s still the EU!
