PBPro Battery specification
#1
It has not been possible to get a replacement battery for the PineBook Pro from the Pine shop. for some time now.

I've been looking for a compatible replacement. As far as I can tell, the model identifier for the original is WTL-40110175, which appears to have come from WTL in China. Their website no longer lists that.identifier.

I've searched on the numeric (40110175), which produced a couple of hits with different prefixes and suffices. They seem to be similar in voltage, &c., though only 8000 mAh, and look similar.

They are expensive enough that I want to ensure they are mechanically and electrically compatible before buying. (At least one offered has 2 variants, with different numbers of wires. The original battery has 7 to the connector).

Can anyone advise me how to ensure that I order a correct one.

Thank you for the prompt reply.  I've just ordered one.

The web page and order confirmation refer toa 1,000 MAh capacity, but the label on the illustration says 10,000 MAh, like the original. I'm trusting the label and you, but notified the company of the typo.

With the shipping fee,  ($18 US) and the currency conversion to $ CDN, the final bill is more than twice the quoted $33 US, close to the  price of the apparent matches, but now at least I have someone to blame if it's not right. :-)*

A couple of notes:
  • cdrtd sells both a 7-pin (as in the link above) and a 5-pin version of the same battery. The PineBook Pro uses the 7-pin version. So for any future battery replacer: please check you got the correct variation of your battery
  • I've also had luck with an AliExpress seller
