Replacement battery for kindle 2

I have a Kindle 2 for the past couple of years.Now it requires frequent charge apparently due to weak battery.I wanted to replace the same, browsed Amazon.There are at least 4 items are available for kindle 2 I am confused to pick the right one.one item specifically states that it is suitable for 3g version only.Can somebody guide me in choosing the correct battery for replacement.
My device info is:2.5.2(490480060)
Serial# B003BOA********

Thanks

Note the section of this page that shows you how to find the model number so you can order the correct battery for your unit.

If battery is >30$, consider upgrading device, K2 is too old to be worth investing in, and screen quality on basic Kindle 4(69$) is way better.

To the people who purchased K2s for $250+ (or even $300+) and love them, $30-50 might well be worth it to keep an old friend. Any bright light shined on an unlit eink screen pretty much eliminates the "betterness" of the newer screens anyway. It's usually only in lower-light conditions where the newer screens have an advantage. I don't read in dim situations. Besides, for many users, the Kindle 4 could hardly be considered an upgrade (or even a replacement) for the Kindle 2. I, for instance, would consider nothing short of a Paperwhite to replace my K2 (and even that tradeoff has downsides that have kept me from going that route so far).

What about the Lico Battery on eBay? Isn't that what they originally came with? The price is right.
