Hi again,
I see it has been a while and I haven't seen a response on this page, so I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue OR if the issue was resolved?

IF you are still looking to replacing the battery in this unit, I have a couple of links below that show where you can get a battery "kit" (battery and tools to do the job) plus a video that shows the process.
