Where do you purchase the replacement battery (and what part number)?

Thanks for this guide Maximilian, and also for the link to purchase the battery, commenter Jorge! Those batteries seem to be pretty difficult to find online. Amazon definitely doesn’t make it easy to find them even on their own site, though they seem happy to sell a replacement fire… :)

Update: I had to do two of these, and it didn’t take me any longer than 10 minutes for either one of them. Easy peasy, thanks for the clear and concise guide.
