I have searched far and wide and cannot find a source for a replacement battery. Has anyone had any luck finding a replacement battery?

Google ‘srs-x5 replacement battery’. That’s what I did, and found two different places in the US. I just ordered this one for $28, free shipping:

They have a higher capacity (3400mAh) for $35 , but I opted for the cheaper one since it was significantly higher capacity than the very adequate original (1800mAh). There also seems to be several retailers in other parts of the world. Thanks to Carrie for posting this, I was just about to replace the whole darn speaker, which still sounds as good as new!
