The tutorial is excellent, even with a link to the tools needed, but no link to battery sale.

Could you please include this?

Very good tutorial thank you. But I can also find no place to buy a new battery... But here is a petition to make Gopro sell spare parts: https://www.change.org/p/gopro-support-o...

I followed these steps and inadvertently pulled not only the battery plug but its adapter (housing) at the same time. Now I can't plug the battery back in because there's no place to plug it! Contacting GoPro they stressed that the battery is not intended for removal.
