Default Battery replacement of iaudio 7 8gb

Hello,

I have the mp3 player : iaudio 7 8gb, and unfortunately my battery died.
I would replace it by a new one, but i don't know what battery to buy who will work with my player.

So I ask here if anyone would be able to know it?

If you have a link to buy a battery who will work with this version of the mp3 player, it will be very good !

Thanks a lot and sorry for my english (i'm french)

I'm not aware of anyone having replaced their i7 battery yet (at least there are no threads about it). The best thing you could do is open your i7 up and look at some markings, numbers on the battery, then do a Google search for that.

Your best bet for a replacement is ebay, or possibly get on the phone with someone from cowon.

If you could translate this page, it might be helpful

You could always buy a 4 GB player and take the battery from it. That way you'll also have a replacement screen if it ever cracks. (I did the opposite; bought a 4 GB player for the screen and kept the extra battery.) I don't recall any prominent markings on the battery pack itself.

Opening the i7 case is a bit tricky, though. See sticky on the disassembled i7 for locations of the hidden tabs.

This is interesting but makes the player quite a bit bigger and scarier looking: http://www.technfun.com/iaudio.shtml

I spent some time on web searches and couldn't find any sources of replacement i7 batteries or accurate measurements of the original battery.

It also looks to me like the i7 is discontinued. There are some old 4gb and 8gb units still for sale, but supplies of 16gb units seem to have dried up.

I've mostly lost interest in Cowon these days and have acquired a crazy number of Sansa players as a result of woot refurb sales. They have their own silliness at times, but they are more Rockbox-friendly and seem easier to get batteries for than the i7.

Hmm, I wonder if this would fit: http://www.batteryspace.com/polymerl...-ullisted.aspx

hi there, i have an iaudio7 with a rapidly dying battery as its past its lifespan so im in the mood to do some replacement as this is a fine audio player. so for anyone that might be interested i have so far drilled off the screws to open the case and have found the battery to be a Lithium Polymer Cell model PR-552963. this has a max charge current of 890 mA, max voltage charge of 4.8v (you should only charge at 4.2 v) and has a nominal voltage of 3.7 v as per lipo battery standard.
Not too sure about getting a replacement but the player case dimensions to work with are 300mm x 650mm maximum and a depth of 50-70mm depending on how close to the mainboard you want to get.

That's hard, but if you send your player to Cowon Repair in the UK for battery replacement they will replace damaged screws (probably only if you tell them)
