Anyone have a source for a replacement battery for the 3100 that has a good price? I will be depending on my Zaurus for some months as my sole access, and want to be sure I have a good battery. But US $90+ is a bit steep.

Obviously I want something that will not fry the beast as well.

I tried the foil route with my 3rd-party batteries and didn't have much luck, even though I could get the charging light to stay on. Using a hobby knife/scalpel to cut away the thin plastic strip between the bottom edge of each terminal and the case seam did wonders to get the battery working, and it only took 30 seconds biggrin.gif

The problem isn't really that the contacts are too deep, but that plastic strip presses against the spring contacts and keeps them from reaching the terminals.
