Thanks for the manual. Does anyone knows where can I buy a replacement battery?

Based on the part number “042060” stamped on the side and the approximate dimensions of the device, look for a 4.0mm x 20mm x 60mm 3.7V lithium polymer battery. They are not easy to find. One example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/500mAh-3-7V-Li-...

Hi Steve, thanks for your very helpful answer. I have already searched a while without success (did not know the dimensions).

Even with knowing the dimensions I had no success. Of course, I found some sellers which sell starting from 1000 pieces. Anyway, the batterie Steve recommended arrived after 15 days. I cannot say anything about the durability, but the device is now working again. Exchange was very easy and did take less then 30 minutes. I am happy to further use the device (sound is even better then a samrtphone).
