Here's a little Vid on how to replace it: Battery Swap: Canon AE-1.

The original battery this system had was mercury oxide based which is no longer being made. You'll need a lithium Ion battery like a 6 volt Duracell X28LB

Will the 6v battery impact performance or damage the camera?

You won't have any damage from using it.

But unlike the older battery LiOn batteries have a different voltage to current track so it won't power the camera as long.

Batteries Plus carries them. The one in my camera was the Energizer L544. Duracell model is the X28LB which is a Lithium-Ion Battery.

Make sure you only use a 6 Volt, there are a lot of similar sized batteries which are other voltages such as 3 or 12 volts. You do not want to ruin your camera.
