Where can you buy these batteries to use as replacement? Thanks for a great tutorial :)

I suppose you’ve already found them over a year after your question, but for anybody new to this tutorial: they are easily found on websites such as Aliexpress or Ebay, since Ifixit unfortunately doesn't sell them.

What should be the voltage on the battery connector with disconnected battery. My measurement is 1,5V DC and is this ok?

I have 2 of these devices both with failing batteries. I contacted WakaWaka for replacement batteries and they offered to recycle the devices but couldn’t/wouldn’t supply the batteries or replace them as a service return. Although the idea of the WakaWaka Power is a sound proposition it is flawed and a few years down the line I find myself with two useless pieces of junk that I cannot replace the cells in, I can indeed strip them down as described but not purchase the cell to effect a repair. I will never buy products from them again and suggest everyone else does the same.

Can anyone point me towards the correct or direct replacement battery for the WakaWaka Power and Power+.

Hi there! You're explaination is super helpful, I'm only struggling to find a new battery.. I'm not that technical and I find it a bit difficult to know which size exactly and what I need to keep in mind. Do you maybe have the exact link of the one you bought?

Thanks a lot! Lieke Veenstra
