Good Afternoon,

So I tried searching the form and came up with nothing..

So my question is does anyone know the Battery Type; Make or Model? I really don't want to open mine just yet until I know I can get a replacement fairly easy.

Thank You,
Tyler

The one I just recently purchased (about 2 weeks ago), had this marked on the battery:
CX402030
3.7v 200mAh

From googling, it apparently is a Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) Li Ion battery.
I am currently investigating a different sort of backup as I am fairly sure this type won't last through our summer (and I don't want it blowing and leaking everywhere over my dash). Thinking of a super cap at this stage. Needs some testing.

Hi! I am very new to all this. I have just read a comment about frying an 0806 camera due to leaving it constantly powered. I had believed that it could be left constantly powered ie hard wiring and using parking mode. It was my intention to power and charge a 12 volt 7 Amp / hr battery of the cigarette lighter socket and then run the camera of that with the supplied anti-discharge box in serries. I have a 128 gig TF card and I was going to have it permanently on? Am I missing something? Am I being niave? Thanks, Guy.

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
run it permanently and you can expect the battery to give in reasonably quickly, they are not designed with this usage in mind

Good job in replacing the battery. I have also been looking at alternate battery options. I hoped that I could get a LiFePO4 (apparently can stand more heat than LiPo) in similar size /capacity but unfortunately, no luck.

Thank you very much for the link showing replacement 0806 battery. Is it very difficult to disassemble the camera and fit the new battery? I once tried a similar stand with a little Sony MP4 player and screwed up. I know that they can be very very tiny wires in a tiny space. I suppose my fear is turning a £70 camera into a bag of bits. It would be great if there were some YouTube video, wouldn't it?
