Where can you get the batteries? Altec Lansing doesn’t carry them.

Search for MCR18650 battery. They are available.

Hickisch, I appreciate your guide on replacing this battery, but I beg to differ that replacement batteries are “available.” I keep getting sent batteries with 3-wire connectors instead of 2-wire. Plz send me a link, plz. Gracias.

for the mini life jacket 3, the motherboard is upside down so you need to remove it to unplug the battery.
