Tracker Mini battery data

Hi forum,

does the battery in the Tracker Mini conform to a standard? Is it user-replaceable?

Bump.

Bumpitty-bump.

Adding @Mitch to this question. I’d be curious to know this as well :blush:

Thanks for tagging Sandroid! Yeah, it is the same kind of battery as in the Nintendo Switch.

I don’t want to make assumptions about the original post’s intentions, but this got me thinking… I’m always surprised when people express interest or concern about built-in batteries these days. To me, they seem so stable, long-lasting and reliable (assuming Lithium ion) that I forget they’re there.

It’s not that I don’t appreciate the forethought of using a Nintendo Switch-spec battery, or the common 18650 used in the Synthstrom Deluge, for example, because it’s theoretically replaceable. It’s a nice-to-have for me, but by no means a must-have.

Maybe I’ve just been lucky with batteries in general? Can someone help me understand the concern?

Maybe you’re comfortable knowing that once your battery is dead, basically your device is junk. I’m not.

And they do die, contrary to what you seem to think. Some people even make a living out of replacing batteries (phone batteries, mainly). Actually I can’t help but find it strange that you were never faced with the problem. :slightly_smiling_face:

No matter how long they last, the other components in the device will last much longer.
