Where can I purchase a replacement battery?

Thanks, it was clear and very help full, fortunately for me it was a solder defect on battery PCB, I just refresh the solder joint with new solder and the speaker works perfectly.

Also I found in Ebay some batteries replacement of 3.7V and 3000mah, but you will need to assembly the battery pack , that will need some electronic knowledge, but I think is not really hard to do.

This guide is very helpful, but does not state which type of batteries are required. Please state which type of battery (or batteries) would suit as a replacement. Thank you!
