I'm looking for a replacement battery for my Neuros MP3 Player. At one point they were available for sale by a 3rd party. Does anyone know of a source?

I do not know of any current sources, but I would try your local electronics supply store.  (Think Radio Shack back when they had all the little drawers full of breadboards and capacitors and other components.)  They should be able to help you find something that will work.

Thanks for the suggestion. I guess we need to break into it and see what we're dealing with.

Hey,
it's not that easy I'm afraid. The battery type you want is a Li-ion called "18650" - but it is soldered into the DAC. It is attached to a small circuit board (aka. PCB) which regulates the charge. I can point you to this replacement

which hopefully should fit in your unit. You'll need soldering skills to install it however.

This guide will help you disassemble the DAC:

Thanks so much, Greyback. I do stained glass, so I think I can handle the soldering. There's not a lot to lose, since you can't send them back in anymore and it's just a fancy paperweight right now.

Greyback:

Both of my HDD backpacks used a mini connector to connect the battery to the board.  You might have to solder the leads onto the new battery, but likely not onto the PCB.

I am sorry to say that nowadays it is very difficult to find a replacement battery for Neuros MP3 player. A friend of mine recently searched a lot for it but to no avail. If he is from UK then I would advise him to check it out on Dixons. If he is not successful then the next thing he should do is to send a mail to Neuros detailing the problem. Most probably they will direct him to the store where it will be available.

That right there is the battery Neuros is currently recommending...  Closest thing to a plug-and-go solution we were able to find.

From the picture of the battery at the noted link, it looks like one would have to do some soldering -- I have an old battery with the wire and connector on it -- the wire is sealed at the ended -- the wires are red and black -- is the black on positive or negative?

I don't know off the top of my head, and a lot of the tech docs were lost in a server move after it was discontinued...  You'll have to look at the old battery and see.
