    Default "Difficult to get" small LIPO battery supplier ?

    Hello,

    The 3.7V, 250mAh LIPO battery in my GPS watch is loosing capacity. I was wondering if anyone knows of a supplier that will deal with end users ? Nb/ I've tried the usual avenues of ebay and google. No avail. Any tips, suggestions will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    The package code is: LP552425

    I spent a night googling. I could only find one supplier (in China) that was willing to deal with me. They could not sell me exact model, but offered a substitute with a minimum order quantity. The order would have been pricey, but still worth it to fix my appliance. However, as soon as I asked for data sheets (so that I could compare my original against their offered substitute) and date of manufacture of batch, they went quiet.

    Any help appreciated . It's for a GPS watch, so dimensions can't exceed 25 x 24 x 5.5mm.

    Cheers J

    Will that work ?. Those old phones used Li-ion chemistry, not LIPO. I thought that Li-ion and LIPO have slightly different charging regimes ?

    Good suggestion of looking for a substitute enclosed in an existing product. Given Lithium battery transport restrictions (dangerous goods), it may be the only solution

    You can try "Battery World". If they don't have in stock or order one they can build a battery pack for you. Click on the service tab and click on "Specialised Battery Builds".

    Nb/ I got a response from Battery World today. They don't manufacture these types of batteries.
