Replacement battery for PineBook Pro
#1
hi!

After 4 years of use, the battery of my PineBook Pro is really swollen, I should change it soon~ish.

Currently, it seems out of stock on the official store, and the European store doesn't even sell spare batteries.

So: has anyone had success procuring batteries elsewhere?

I haven't yet, but just a quick search turns up several that look like they would work, including this one

:wq

That one specifically is not compatible, it's the 5pin variant, whereas the Pinebook Pro uses the 7pin avriant instead.
But cdrtd seem to have that one too.
But I don't know how much cdrtd is a reliable source for laptop parts. I've also found several vendors on AliExpress (random example), but same caveats apply: I don't know them, and I don't know anything about their reliability.

Update regarding my battery problem:
  • still no answer from Pine64 themselves
  • but since then I bought one from Ali mentionned above, replaced it, charged it, seems to work.
I'll update in a few weeks whether this battery still holds charge or if it degraded too quick.
