Any recommendations for a good place to buy replacement GPS batteries?

 

Posting the question here because I am looking for a specific battery for a specific model not Garmin or TomTom. However, any store that has a wide selection of batteries may work.

I bought a MIO Knight Rider GPS some time ago as a novelty and its battery has run out and won't recharge any more. I believe that the model is similar to a MIO 300 or 310 so those batteries may work in it.

Just interested in getting the GPS running again simply to use it in my Trans Am.

Thanks for any help.

I would go to aliexpress.com

I would go to aliexpress.com and search for numbers on the old battery. Match voltage, mAh, size and connector. You may find them on eBay also, but it will likely be more $$ and take just as long to arrive.
Typically, now it is 3-6 weeks from China.

Amazon

I have a number of different items with weird type batteries and I always find what I need on Amazon

Battery Mart

I’ve used these people to get batteries for some old Samsung tablets that I use in the house for streaming Sirius into my stereo. They seem reliable and have a decent life on a charge.

While I haven't figured out which source would be best, being able to research among all the suggestions has really been helpful. In fact, if the MIO Knight Rider is really a MIO 300/310 in disguise, it has given me another thought.

I've also seen several eBay sellers saying that they have NIB MIOs for sale at half the price of the battery alone from a battery vendor. I've already taken apart the Knight Rider so I know what's involved. It wouldn't be hard to do the same for a 300/310. I would also be getting a mount, cord, etc., to boot if I went that route. Just an idea though.

Tha would seem to me to be a good route to go. Provided they have a decent return policy.

I used these guys awhile back. Forgot about them and didn't realize they were still around. Just wish they carried an old OEM Samsung battery for my Mom's flip phone. Guess it's time for a new phone for her.

There are plenty of sources for a Samsung flip battery, even Amazon, and at a wide range of prices. Usually the back of the Samsun flip just pops off, then you can see the battery and get its model #. Then do a search.
