I’m also wanting to know where you found the replacement battery. I’ve found several replacement battery packs for hover boards but none that match the T1. The T1 has a circuit board attached to the battery pack, fused…. where can I find this?

Yep, can’t find a T1 battery anywhere. Even Swagtron won’t tell me how to get one, short of sending it in for service.

Swagtron tech support offers to replace any battery if under warranty, which requires that you pay to ship the entire unit back to them for service. This seems insanely costly, but probably avoids voiding the warranty.

If you are out-of-warranty, they said they would sell me a battery, but did not offer any pricing info.

If you want to do-it-yourself, out-of-warranty: My guess it that the metal shielded “battery” actually contains commercially available LiIon cells which can be privately sourced, but may require some wire splicing, may be a shock hazard and such, so is more complex than just plug-in a replacement.
