Do you know where we can find replacement batteries that fit?

Also looking for a replacement. Have a failing pack that has bulged the case. Currently talking with support. G713140AJ does not seem to be sold anywhere.

So far it appears the battery was made specifically for FLIR. Their Tech support says they do not recognize the battery as a user replaceable item and recommends the unit be sent in for repair. Hopefully as time goes and more of these units fail the battery vendors on ebay and other places might begin to carry them. Until then this camera will be an expensive paper weight as it will not setup with its internal battery unplugged.

Interesting note, I took an xacto knife and carefully relieved the bulge in the battery. Some liquid came out and the battery went back to its normal size. I did plug it back in and believe it or not it actually worked. I dont trust it though as lithium Ion batteries have a tendency to catch on fire, I can just imagine what would happen to one that has been compromised.
