    I have been using an external battery pack for my keyboard and it works OK. Anyone have any info on a replacement battery? There are tons of 300mah batteries on Amazon, but I am not sure on the other specs

    I used a 2 wire battery (kei-702) 25mm x 41.2 mm x 2.7mm. Thickness is OK.
    I cut off old pcb and reused the old thermistor (2k ohms). New red to old red plug side, spliced new black to old black, keeping old black connected to old pcb and old plug. Blue wire untouched. Now have new 3 wire battery with old plug. Working fine.
    Other option is to replace new pcb with old pcb on new battery.
    Other option is iPod nano 2nd generation battery, needs minor mod to fit 33mm width. But it is likely 10k ohm thermistor.
    Hope this helps.

    非常に興味ある動画で参考になります。ところで交換バッテリーですが、アリエクスプレスでの購入は避けたいのですが, モノタロウや秋葉原では同性能のものが厚さ3ミリのものしかありません。

    Good job, BUT a heat gun is a must. Mine had that black plastic film and both corners, at the top, SERIOUSLY glued. So be forewarned to anyone trying this, HEAT GUN!!

      @hur13y yes and the top corners as well.

      Where do you apply the heat? Open slightly and force heat in towards the black sticky film?

    mine has some kind of epoxy glue near the top corners of the keyboard, couldnt open it without breaking it. Could not remove the battery from the case too as it was stuck on very tightly. U were lucky that your devices did not have that problem.

    Battery died after very minimal use and now the device doesn’t even switch on anymore. Poor poor product and wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

    Why is it we need to see EVERY screw taken out. SPEED it up!!
    What we look for is any difficulty involved, not a lesson on screw removal

    Mine was also glued by epoxy at the top corners. Complete waste of time. Just skip this garbage manufacturer next time.

    Battery no longer available and being a tight fit, no suitable replacements were found. (Please post if you find one) But if you remove the dead battery it will work when usb is plugged in. Be very careful around the top right corner where the USB port is located. Very easy to dislodge the usb socket which is difficult to resolder.

      Even when plugged in I cannot get it to work with my iPhone 11, ios 15.2. Even if that battery were still available, which it is not, I would never go through what this guy did to open up that keyboard. I'm not handy anyway.
