I have seen them on ebay but it's easier to find a Nabi 2 battery on ebay. The Nabi 2 battery is quite a bit larger but with a very minor mod to the Nabi Jr. the Nabi 2 battery will fit and give you a much longer run time from a single charge.

My old Nabi jr battery is a plug in with 2 reds 1 white and 2 black wires. My new Cameron sino battery is blue green red yellow black. What is the order to resolder them.

I have the same problem with the problem of the replacement battery not having the same wiring configuration or plug. Did you ever get this resolved?
