Hi Braden!

Thanks for this manual looks easy. What is the best shop to buy a spare battery? Can you use the Sony SP 624038 ? It has slightly different specs (3.7 v instead 3.6v and 1000 mha instead of 925 mha). Would be an interesting upgrade.

Regards,

Marvin

Since I could not find an SP70A battery, I ended up replacing the battery with an authentic SP70 battery that was rated at the same 925mAh and 3.6V.
