Welcome to the site! I'm Dan, and I'd be happy to help! Sorry we took so long to get to your question. I'm not sure where it was buried, but I found it!

I've worked with these LifeCycle models for years now. The 6500 uses a fairly standard >>9V lithium battery<< that you can get at any local retailer for a few dollars. Regular alkaline will also work.

Let me know if you need anything else. Oh, and please take a second to rate the service I provided (there should be a 5-star scale on your page somewhere). Don't worry, that won't close your question and you can still respond back at any time.

Where is the battery located on the equipment so I can change it - lifecycle 6500? This was my original question.
Exercise Equipment Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 7 months ago

Yes, of course. The battery is inside the display unit. Remove the panel on the back of the display.
